Summary: Originally released on the Sega Saturn back in 1996 this Xbox Live remake is certainly a faithful update of this well regarded title and it, apparently, even adds a few new elements into the mix. Features such as a more complicated move set, a branching storyline and light RPG elements helped to make it a step up from previous side scrolling beat em ups such as Golden Axe but in 2014 these features are commonplace.
Summary: 10 is not an enough score to honor this game. And I don't even know where to start when the subject is this game, what aspect of this marvelous gem of gaming I should focus... Well let's get started: - This game is one of the best(if not the best) STORY MODE COUCH CO-OP. No game nowadays seems to focus this anymore, all you got is multiplayer through online features, and this lack of diversity is really sad. - This game is from a time when there was NO DLC CRAP.
Summary: Wow, I played the original and I am once again totally blown away with this game. Not only do I get a fully remastered version with updated graphics and online play, but I can still play the classic graphic style if I wanted to do so. Guardian Hereos is like combing games like FInal Fight, Street Fighter, D&D (Arcade baby!), Knights of the Round, etc. Each character has their own set of moves and you level up to apply stat points between levels.
Summary: If you are a fan of the old school scrolling beat-em-ups that seem to have had a bit of a resurgence on XBLA and PSN in the last few years, then this game is definitely for you! Considering it's a game that was made for the Sega Saturn quite a few years ago it has lots of features modern iterations of the genre have only now started to use.
Summary: Its unfortunate that people think this is a button smasher. Although you are able to win or play by smashing buttons at some point, there is a lot of skill involved in the game. From counters to forcebacks, timing, mastering combos, reflects, and of course, your reaction time is important in any fighting game. The game is pretty well balanced if you know how to set the rules up.
Summary: Great game. Combine Smash bros and Street fighter with Castle Crashers and you're left with Guardian Heroes . Every character you beat you can play as in the arcade mode. Theres different branching stories and the play through is short but sweet, definitely a game made for multiple play-troughs. Gorgeous sprites, Great Music, and Enemies are never bland or over repeated. The online mode works without lag.
Summary: sweet game. it's kind of like golden axe meets street fighter2 with better graphics. the story is a little cheesy but the button mashing is fun. the button combination are easily remembered resulting in some pretty stunning visuals. the only thing that detracts from this game, for me, is the hopping rows gameplay and the pretty awful dailog box art. other than that, it's good.
