Tag: The game that plays you.
Gametype: Commercial, Subscription


Status: Meltdown.
Synopsis: Notes


Billed as "The Game that Plays You," Majestic was a grand failure at attracting enough subscribers to "play." Although the concept was excellent, hard-core players coming out of the Beast were disappointed by the ease with which they went through the updates and the lack of need for collaboration to do so. Newbies to the genre were more attracted to Majestic and it's easily solvable puzzles than those who had been previously spoiled by the AI promotion, but the game's premise based on a terrorist plot put the final axe to its lackluster performance after the events of September 11.
