Guardian Heroes

Game Over Online
13 October 2015
  • Excerpt: Guardian Heroes has been heralded as one of the finest beat-em ups ever since its release 15 years ago on the Saturn. Unfortunately, its scarcity has resulted in it not being played by a lot of people who wanted to play it, like myself.

  • Conclusion: They seldom put this much effort into current games. The Vs mode adds to the replayability even further, as does the rpg leveling system. If you like 2d games/fighters/rpgs/anime/brawlers at all, you cannot miss this title, you owe it to yourself to give this gem a try.

  • Summary: Guardian Heroes is easily my favorite Sega Saturn game, and has become one of my favorite XBLA titles as well. If you want to know where Castle Crashers got its inspiration, look no further.

19 October 2011
  • Excerpt: The Sega Saturn, despite its poor performance in the console wars of its generation, has managed to retain a surprisingly loyal following in its wake, due in large part to an extensive roster of niche titles of excellent quality.
