    The theme, gameplay, and the excellent visuals in Raji: An Ancient Epic make for a fun session every time you fire it up. The limitations are minimal, and the very few critiques I might have are not major detractors. This is a good game and worth a playthrough.

    Despite some technical issues and a story that ends too quickly, Raji: An Ancient Epic is a great narrative-driven game that's worth playing.

    Raji: An Ancient Epic is a beautiful adventure unlike anything we’ve likely seen in video games, let alone the Switch. The gameplay itself is of a strong if unspectacular standard, but it’s the design and the experience which you’re paying for here.

    Raji: An Ancient Epic is a strong debut for Nodding Head Games but it’s just a shame there isn’t more of it. It brings a respectful take on Hindu and Balinese mythology, one which has a strong narrative hook that invests you in Raji’s personal adventure whilst offering enjoying gameplay. Though it suffers from some unfortunate technical issues, this is one journey we still recommend experiencing, especially if you're a fan of the genre.

    While not without its flaws, Raji: An Ancient Epic is a competent and enjoyable debut from Nodding Head Games that leans on some video game classics for its mechanics and combat but blends them with Hindu iconography and Balinese mythology to give it oodles of character.

    A video game can get a lot of mileage out of a novel setting and a fetching art style.

    Raji; An Ancient Epic has a lot of potential and a unique style and story, but seems to be actively working against the player’s enjoyment in many ways. While the first level is enjoyable, the rest of the game is plagued with performance issues and incomprehensible design decisions.

Here you will find excellent bright combat, dynamic puzzles, and everything else that is in other games. But what is really valuable is the absolutely delightful environment, admirable murals on the walls, immersion, and amazing Indian mythology. Expand

I liked the combat (a little similar to Hades, with different weapons and different 'boons') and exploring the game a lot (puzzles) - the art is really really beautiful, and so were the cut scenes and music. I loved learning about the gods and goddesses. Some reviewers said the camera angle was an issue, but I didn't feel that way, because the camera would usually be angled to give a wide shot of the background and architecture. I was more surprised by how short this game was. I thought it would run much longer, with much more to explore. Also, really stellar voice acting (except Raji's lol). Overall, I really enjoyed this game. It's a short and really beautiful action game. Expand

ItOverall, I think this is a super cool game idea, and I got really hyped for India's mythology and that the game studio is based in India. It really reminds me of the Prince of Persia on PC that I played when I was young. This is both in a good and negative perspective because the movement and controls over Raji's main character are not smooth like in Prince of Persia on PC back in the days. The stiff movement made me put down the game after just 2-3 days, even do the storyline made me want to finish it. Expand
