Mini Review: Maglam Lord (PS4) – Rough Action RPG Saved By Dumb Sense of Humour

From Hell with love.

Maglam Lord is a fish-out-of-water story in which you assume the role of a demon lord named, ahem, Killizerk. Stripped of your once great powers and pushed into a world where everything seems a bit too peaceful, you embark on a quest to restore your former glory. The only problem is that in order to retain what’s left of your godlike strength, you’ll need to let others do most of the fighting — and so you end up forging relationships with a number of colourful warriors.

Right off the bat, it’s clear that Maglam Lord doesn’t take itself seriously. Plot twists are often played off as jokes and characters routinely react in comedic fashion to increasingly daft scenarios. It’s a similar sense of humour to what you’ll find in the Disgaea games, and it’s pretty much the best thing about Maglam Lord. Characters are likeable as a result of their flippant attitudes, and loads of dumb dialogue choices let you role-play — at least to a degree — as your ideal demon lord.
