"A damn good Tactical RPG!"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

There are a couple of key features about makai kingdom that make it a great game!

One of the most noted is the full character customisation system! each class of character has a certain set of weapons (out of the hundreds available) that they are experts ate using. E.G. Apprentices are experted at Swords, Axes, etc… Where as magicians are experted at using Books and Daggers! All characters can use all weapons, but will only develop with weapons they are experts at using. But, using the reincarnation system you could make a magician and have him learn all of the “Passive” elemental spells, then reincarnate him as an apprentice, using axes with high Attack but also able to use elemental magic! this coupled with the point distribution system (which allows you to choose which stats of each character are going to be the highest) allows for hundreds of possible character outcomes.

The characters are also given a certain sense of “self rightousness” that makes the cut scenes and dialogue rather quirky… i.e. Overlord Zetta constantly claiming that he is “one bad-ass freakin overlord”, even though he is just a book with a face on the front.

Over all, an excellent game to play and laugh at, I recommend buying it if you liked FF Tactics Advanced and want something similar but more advanced!

Description

An attempt to rewrite history gone terribly wrong, Lord Zetta the ruler of netherworld brought destruction upon himself. When all seemed lost, three evil overlords appear before Lord Zetta to help him recreate his world. Now Lord Zetta wages war on a new world to become the supreme ruler once again, while the three overlords entertain themselves by creating more trouble for Lord Zetta.

Players will take on the role of Lord Zetta to command an army of determined fighters to reclaim what has righteously been his, the netherworld. Gamers will battle enemies ranging from vicious demons to determined soldiers with both modern and ancient warfare. Slash your enemies with the good old broadsword or blast your way through with the deadly rocket launcher; the choices are yours.

Makai Kingdom introduces a new summoning system referred to as the INVITE system that summons your facilities that contain army units to the battlefield. Every facility summoned to the battlefield will contain your troops that are then deployed to battle your hated enemies.

In Makai Kingdom, battle maps are randomly generated, offering a new gaming experience every time you play. With unlimited variations of maps, gamers can expect countless hours of game play.

Features:

* Create, grow, and govern your own kingdom

* Players can build anything from weapons factories to hospitals to dog houses

* During your battle phase summon facilities from your kingdom onto the battle field

* Create, customize and equip your troops for battle

* Modern day weaponry such as gatling guns and flame-throwers combine with more traditional weapons such as katanas and battle-axes.
