    Magus review. Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of Magus for the PlayStation 3 developed by Black Tower and Aksys Games and published by Aksys Games.

    After years and imprisonment and torture, a man known as Magus is finally broken free. The strange part is what his mysterious liberator tells him—that he’s actually a god. Once he starts firing magic beams from his hands, it starts to make more sense to him. Magus splices basic third-person shooting gameplay into the framework of an action-RPG, offering players constant upgrades and weapon/item management. Magus has three different types of magic, which gives him three different primary attacks. In addition, each type of magic also has several special attacks that drain said magic, and these are most enjoyable element of the game. One lets Magus hover in the air above his enemies, another lets him reanimated dead enemies to fight for him and yet another turns him into a giant, allowing him to stomp enemies like ants. Magus is a single-player action RPG.

    This video review features video gameplay footage of Magus for the PlayStation 3 and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.
