Maglam Lord combines a handful of genres into one package, and does it well enough to make it at least fun. However, it's the kind of fun that comes from mindlessly consuming something with little resistance. Maglam Lord works well as an in-between game, but it cannot hold up against other titles that specialize in the genres that this game combines.

Maglam Lord's got heart, but it's encased behind some disappointingly shoddy design.

Maglam Lord has a lot of potential, but you'll need to stick it out and try to squeeze some joy from its repetitive combat system and stale dungeon design. Along with its writing, an excellently drawn cast of characters - who can be recruited and romanced through the dating mechanic - offer shining moments in an otherwise unremarkable action-JRPG. The potential is certainly there for something special, and the game's visual cues for possible results of dialogue options removes much of the guesswork common in other games, but the execution falls flat in the combat department and holds back the enjoyable visual novel elements of this package from being as good as they could be.

Maglam Lord is a entertaining, albeit simple, action RPG with a wonderful story and well-done VN elements.

Maglam Lord is a simple story with unforgettable characters who you will meet and argue or fight alongside with. While Maglam Lord is a shorter experience for sure, it’s definitely a fun ride of fighting and love. Dialogue is quirky and funny especially with the voice acting on top of it.

Underwhelming in all aspects outside of the story and characters, Maglam Lord isn't a game that will have you hooked from beginning to end, but there is enough here in its narrative for those looking for something a bit more light-hearted.

There’s a place for this kind of game, though, and thanks to the great sense of humour, Maglam Lord remains a delight from start right through to its end. It’s a kind of comfort food that operates within the expectations of the genre, and so, while someone who is not familiar with JRPGs will find it all confounding, if you do appreciate the nuances and of the genre it’s going to entertain you a great deal.

Maglam Lord is a game I really want to like. It has strong aesthetics, a cute premise, and a deep weapon customization system. It’s the elements around them that I’m not that fond of. A good JRPG needs a good story to encourage you to see it through to the end, but its plot and characters are sadly not that great. The camera issues during combat also didn't help matters much. Don't get me wrong, this game isn't a poor showing and I’m sure there’s someone out there who will gel with this title and have a great time, but I can’t say I’m among them.

Felistella can create something really fun and interesting in the future. But Maglam Lord needs to be improved in may ways.

The funky settings of the world of Maglam Lord is somewhat weird but appreciated. Sadly, the variety of the content becomes too repetitive due to the lack of variable maps, recycled character motions, a short number of skills to learn and most attacks require the players to mash and grind buttons in quick succession to do more damage than not. There is no value in multiple playthroughs either so overall the game feels like an empty can at most.

Maglam Lord has styles of quite old fashioned JRPG, especially its graphic looks like it was developed at 90's, the Playstation One era. But the developers, who also have made 'Summon Night' series, successfully create another simple, great immersive story.

Maglam Lord has a few interesting ideas: the protagonists or its anime aesthetics, but in the rest it is below giving us a gameplay that we will be more accustomed to seeing in mobile games.

It’s certainly not a bad title, and thankfully the issues that are there are such that they don’t create an active barrier to progress, but the entertaining parts are steadily diluted enough that the experience as a whole misses out on being something to be fully celebrated.

Overall, Maglam Lord had a lot of potential that it just didn’t fully capitalize on. While characters and dialogue are done really well, the combat that becomes tedious contrasting against some arbitrarily powerful or annoying bosses can be frustrating. Most enemies are simply palette swaps, including bosses that are just large normal enemies, and an annoying grind for materials at times really serve to slow the game down. Maglam Lord certainly isn’t bad, but it isn’t all it could be, either.

In the end, Maglam Lord isn't a reference for action RPGs or the best visual novel, but it mixes a little of their aspects, making a charismatic, fun and excellent title for someone who wants something more casual. It's more like a date rather than a [title to have a] serious relationship [with].

If your action-RPG library has felt a little lacking as of late,Maglam Lord might be what you’re looking for. This story of a long-slumbering Bladelord awakening to a new world order combines dungeon exploration with side-scrolling encounters and a splash of romance.

Maglam Lord is a stylish, enjoyable and charismatic action RPG. With an enjoyable narrative, good translation and fun combat, it's not hard to fall in love with the game. Some technical aspects deserved to be more polished, but it's still a good recommendation, especially for fans of the genre.

For the sake of fairness, I’ll admit that I genuinely enjoyed playing through Malgam Lord, and I think that it definitely has a niche fanbase that will enjoy it just as much—if not more than—I did. Despite any personal enjoyment, however, I can’t help but feel as though it’s ultimately a very middling game. While Maglam Lord does have some decent high points in terms of its story and setup, its bland level design, repetitive combat, and compressed crafting system weigh it down to an unfortunate degree.

Maglam Lord is an imperfect, tarnished hidden gem that will excite fans of niche entertainment, but do it at a discounted price.
