  • Excerpt: I'd like to start off by saying one thing, anyone who doesn't like crazy Japanese anime should hit the back button now and look for another beat ‘em up to consider purchasing. This game is solely based on appeasing the fans of the series. The story is very deep, and quite intriguing at first, but it is very peculiar and I doubt it will hold anybodies attention for very long; it's almost a certainty that many people will be skipping the long, tedious cut scenes unless...

  • Conclusion: So, it would probably be a good thing if you were well acquainted with the series. This issue is compounded by the fact that over 80% of the time you spend on the story mode you will be watching cut-scenes, along with the odd loading or 'Do you want to save?' screen. I timed the gaps between three of the game's fights, and each of them came in at over five minutes, while I won two of the fights in under sixty seconds, and the third in under ninety seconds.
  • Pros: Graphics aren't too bad., Um, it'll help you and your family learn French...?
  • Cons: Too much dialogue in story mode., Overly simple fighting.

  • Conclusion: Nos encontramos ante un juego divertido y adictivo, que no pasará inadvertido entre todos aquellos fanáticos de la saga. Todos aquellos que no tengan conocimiento de los Caballeros del Zodiaco puede que se encuentren ante un juego que no les aporte demasiado. En la línea de DBZ Budokai, Saint Seiya puede resultar muy interesante para todos aquellos, que como yo, lo pasaron genial con la serie. Recordar esas viejas aventuras resulta sumamente interesante.
  • Pros: Las armaduras de Oro, La ambientación, en todos sus sentidos, Totalmente fiel al espíritu de la serie, Las novedades que incorpora en jugabilidad

  • Conclusion: Es ist unglaublich, dass Saint Seiya als Vollpreisspiel den Weg in die Regale gefunden hat. Spätestens beim Probespielen hätte den Entwicklern auffallen sollen, dass spielerisch für knapp 55 Euro wesentlich mehr erwartet werden darf als ausgiebiges Ausschlachten eines hierzulande mehr oder minder bekannten Namens. Da hilft auch der obligatorische 2-Spieler-Modus nichts mehr. An dieser Stelle so etwas wie eine Empfehlung auszusprechen, fällt daher schwer.

  • Conclusion: Detaljfattigt och kalt. Enfärgade texturer samsas med en ljussättning som på sin höjd är okej. Säkert originaltrogen men ändå fantasilös design. Den som söker variationsrik, tempofylld och finessrik fighting bör titta åt ett annat håll. De tröttsamma mellanskevenserna gör storyläget outhärdligt. Få spellägen och avsaknad av spelmässigt djup gör spelandet meningslöst i längden. Skräp som jag, inte minst med tanke på konkurrensen, har svårt att se poängen med.
  • Pros: Kontrollen fungerar
  • Cons: Ålderdomlig grafik, Trista karaktärer, För mycket handling, Fantasilös design, Inget djup
