A curious little first-person hack and slash game with a surreal back-story involving a sentient AI sword. Maken X suffers from a poor English localization but is otherwise an interesting and fun addition to the Dreamcasts catalogue.
Demul 0.5.8.2 (DirectX 10) – Minor glitches around light sources, otherwise the game runs very well. If your computer is fast enough, turn off the “Disable auto sort” option to minimize glitches. Sound emulation is not completely accurate.
