Mage’s Initiation: Reign of the Elements

"Himalaya's long-awaited genre hybrid may water down its RPG elements, but in most respects it's a tower of strength as an adventure."


The Good:

Incredibly beautiful pixel art
Well-written dialogue and observations throughout
Succeeds in telling a classic fantasy story and creating a genuinely interesting new world
Voice acting is generally excellent, especially considering the diversity of characters

The Bad:

Battle mechanics are clumsy and simplistic
RPG elements are de-emphasized too much
Protagonist’s voice is a bit too sincere at times

Our Verdict:

Mage’s Initiation is like a modern-day Sierra On-Line gem, an extraordinarily polished adventure game. If the battle sections were improved and the RPG elements better integrated, this would be a near-perfect experience, but it’s still a game that should cast a spell on any genre fan.
