  • Excerpt: The fifth in our six part retrospective on action game developer, Treasure, Robert's review of Advance Guardian Heroes takes an in-depth look at the recent sequel to the Sega Saturn classic. Although in some respects, the GBA version of Guardian Heroes sports some welcome enhancements, it also lacks some key gameplay mechanics that were very popular in the original title. Get the full story here, and check in with the full feature series for more about Treasure.
  • Pros: ups: action, deep controls, art design

Portable Review

  • Excerpt: "In the current state of the industry, popular characters or licences are more then ever the key for publishers. That is one of the main reasons for the choice of Guardian Heroes. If you go original, it is really hard to have your project accepted. We would like to go original but it is not always possible.

Advance Guardian Heroes review (GBA)

  • Excerpt: Just don't let the other reviews dissuade you by constant talk of slowdown. It's hardly as omnipresent as they'd have you believe, even in the multiplayer modes.

  • Conclusion: Hopefully Treasure will find a way to deal with the lagging issues because if they can tune that up, Advance Guardian Heroes seems to be a very nice game indeed. The high paced action is trademark Treasure goodness and Ubisoft has yet another sweet title on their hands. Ubisoft has set this game to a September 14th release date, and fans are very excited.

Advance Guardian Heroes Review

GameSpot
17 September 2004
  • Excerpt: Ask someone that used to (or still) owns a Sega Saturn what some of his or her favorite games for the system are, and one of the titles that's likely to crop up near the top of the list is Guardian Heroes--a medieval-themed action game developed by Treasure, the same group of coders responsible for numerous timeless greats like Gunstar Heroes, Radiant Silvergun, Sin and Punishment, Ikaruga, and Astro Boy: Omega Factor.

  • Conclusion: Malgré ces défauts de réalisation à la limité du bâclé, on prend son pied à jouer à Advance Guardian Heroes. C’est le principe d’un jeu, le fun est bien présent, avec une bonne dose de baston comme on l’aime et une durée de vie conséquente qui évite de le finir en une après-midi. Alors si vous n’êtes pas trop regardant sur les graphismes et que vous aimez les beat’em all, n’hésitez pas.

  • Excerpt: La mode est depuis longtemps à l'adaptation de vieux titres sur GBA et lorsqu'il ne s'agit pas de la résurrection d'un hit oublié de tous, il s'agit de lui offrir une suite. Ce coup-ci, c'est Guardian Heroes qui s'y colle. Après avoir fait les beaux jours de la Saturn, le voilà qui arrive sur la portable de Nintendo.
