Magus is an action RPG game by Black Tower Studios and Aksys Games, released in 2014 for the PlayStation 3.


Magus has been imprisoned by the Waterfall Kingdom for over 30 years. Eventually, another prisoner named Kinna breaks him free and together they embark on a quest to discover Magus’ true identity.


The game plays out like a mix between a third-person shooter and an action RPG. Combat involves using 3 different types of magic: green, blue, and red.

Why it Sucks

  1. Extremely short, lasting only less than 5 hours.
  2. Extremely easy. Aside from having virtually infinite magic, many players have reported that they have won platinum trophies in one sitting.
  3. Forgettable characters.
  4. Emotionless voice acting.
  5. Cheesy dialogue choices.
  6. Lackluster storyline.
  7. Poor graphics with extremely creepy-looking human face models.
  8. Ridiculous outfits.
