Saint Seiya Brave Soldiers Review
Seiya Fan Grade: B
General Gamer Grade: C
There are great stuff in this game but at the same time a lot of
awful stuff. You will have fun but because of lack of characters and content,
things will get repetitve. If the developers just put in a bit more effort
they would have had something, but they didn't.
The characters and background stay true to the anime.
Original Voice Actors
Many original TV Series Voice actors returned to voice their characters.
Lack of Characters
Many slots are taken up by the same characters in different costumes.
The lack of usual Specters and other Silver Saints is disturbing. What's
worst is that in story mode, because the characters Shiryu fought in front
of Wailing Wall don't exist. He had to fight Minos which never happened
in the actual story. Because God Cloth Shiryu and Hyoga don't exist.
There is no VS Hypnos fight for them!
Story Mode Half-Ass
At first you thought the story mode would go great because you saw pics
from the actual TV Series but as you play on, you realize they didn't include
many important pics. Furthermore, many errors were committed. It's obvious
that this was done to save cost.
Big Bang Attack Still Dumbass
Though they improved the Big Bang system a little. It's still doesn't
make it an enjoyable experience. You have to connect the Big Bang with
a force hit for the Skill to come out. The range of this varies with different
characters. Some have large ranges and rushes to the opponent but for some
characters even if they are standing right next to the opponent and even
if the opponent didn't dodge, the Big Bang still won't connect!
Galaxian Mode Pointless
There is no group fighting mode. All battles are 1 vs 1 regardless of
modes. This mode just allows for 8 players to join one tournatment and
fight accordingly by order. There's an announcer there to make it like
the Galaxian Wars episodes but eventually the anouncer just says the same
things again and again.
Online Mode Done Incorrectly
Most online modes where if you have 4 slots for a room, when you have
enough people you can choose to fight which other player online that's
not fighting, but for some weird reason, even if you have 4 people in a
room, they force you to watch the 2 players that are fighting and the two
of you that's not fighting can't even choose the other person to fight!
If they wanted to allow the option for watching matches, they should have
made that option for that, not force people to watch.
New Voices Actors
The voice actors who replaced the original for Bronze Five are still
as annoying as hell.

The devotion of Seiya fans are huge yet this company has yet to really
repay their devotion. Saint Seiya deserve a game system unique to its own,
not forced into another game engine. Commit to making real games! If this
company can't do it, partner with one that can.
