Malicious Fallen is a great package as you are effectively getting three very involved games to play with for a very reasonable price. Considering the difficulty as well as the complexity of the game, it's likely you'll be playing Malicious Fallen for a good while.

Overall, Malicious Fallen is a remaster worth investing in. Not owning Rebirth on the Vita, fixing the camera issue of the PS3 version, and improving the frame rate in both versions, I had a better experience and got to explore the chapters I missed out from the saga. It's a great action game that gave me a lot of challenge, which I always ask for. At half the price of your average retail game, I say it's definitely worth it.

It's a pity that Sony saw fit to release this in the same week it dropped Horizon on the world. Had it landed in a quieter part of the year, Malicious would have got a lot more notice from the media and the community. It deserves to be noticed too; it's not the greatest 'Monster Hunter' game out there, but it is gorgeous and has a lot of interesting, unique ideas going for it.

'Malicious' is a fitting name for a game this unforgiving.

Much like its predecessors, Malicious Fallen is a game with a good idea and less-than-stellar execution. Since it has three times the amount of content when compared to the original and doesn't feel painfully short now, it's easier to accept the idea of a title consisting of nothing but boss fights.

Malicious Fallen is an aesthetically pleasing action game, flawed by many problems that would have been quite easy to address. Just like its previous chapters it's a title with good potential, unfortunately not exploited, which will be certainly appreciated by fans of the series.

Malicious Fallen is an upgraded version of a game released 7 years ago on PS3. It offers a lot more content and keeps its nervous gameplay, but everything seems a little bit old now.

Malicious Fallen delivers some serious flash and flair alongside some serious frustration.

While we cannot speak for those who played the original Malicious, this remaster will most likely alienate newcomers.
