  • Excerpt: Guardian Heroes was, is, and always will be a video game masterpiece. I’ve played a metric ton of side scrolling brawlers in my life, but few could even hold a candle to Guardian Heroes.

Guardian Heroes Review

PlayDevil
5 January 2012
  • Summary: " Guardian Heroes " is an odd one. The remake is pretty weird, and the original is no looker, even in widescreen. Fans will hopefully go wild for it, but for people that have never heard of this long-forgotten Saturn game, I’d definitely recommend trying out the free demo before shelling out- whilst...

Diehard GameFAN

  • Summary: : It’s like this: Guardian Heroes is basically one of the best beat-em-ups ever developed, the end, and unless you actively and passionately hate the entire genre you have no reason whatsoever to buy and love this game as your own.

  • 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.

Game Over Online

  • Conclusion: The elitist in me doesn't want you to play this game. You should have picked up a copy back when it was first released and saved my beloved Saturn from languishing in relative obscurity. Yet Guardian Heroes is too good a game to let this old fanboy's pride get in the way.

Review: Guardian Heroes for XBLA

TechnologyTell
3 November 2011
  • Excerpt: I have a confession. Whenever I hear that an older game is getting re-released in high definition, I usually let out a sigh that’s fueled by disinterest. These things seem like cash grabs to me most of the time.
  • Pros: HD resolution is clean and crisp, multiple plot decisions, character progression through leveling, smooth combat animation, multiple special moves
  • Cons: Nine lives isn’t enough on normal difficulty, skill point allocation is not saved, character unlocks restricted, versus mode is too hectic for 12 players, some input lag

  • 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.

  • Conclusion: My first Hard Mode attempt lasted a minute—literally.
  • Pros: Realizing that I was good enough to finish on Normal after my initial stumblings.
  • Cons: I don't like straining to see my character in a sea of enemies.
