So far I've only played halfway through the Sanctuary Story Arc. I am very impressed with this game as a long time fan of the series. I did not expect the variety of languages available, though I cannot say I am surprised because this show is a worldwide phenomenon. I really enjoy the dialogue that occurs during battles. I do agree with some of the negative comments about those who are uninitiated with the storyline would have a difficulty understanding what is going on as the game begins with the conclusion of the first story arc. However, as a long time fan I'm really looking forward to playing this game and unlocking its many secrets.

Impossible to play on a keyoard. They did not even bother marking the tutorial with keyboard controls, making it near impossible to do the tutorial. Virtually no options available on well anything, neither graphical or sound. Basically, a cheap console port, definitely not worth the price on pc. Play this on a console, where it belongs.

I have zero knowledge of the whole Saint Seiya universe. Instead of buying all kinds of manga and anime to get into it I decided I will be getting this game instead. I was hoping that Saint Seiya: Soldier's Soul would work as an abridged version of the stuff I would otherwise read or watch…

Unfortunately, that is not the case - pretty sure that this game works best if you are already way into the source material. Storymode tosses you right into the action, without any real introduction to anything. To add insult to injury all the cutscenes are really bland (unlike the Big Bang Attacks during the actual fights ingame) - so I ended up skipping them all after the first couple of stages. After having completed the storymode portion of the game I now know more or less as little/much about Saint Seiya as before.

Apart from that, the game itself is rather boring as well. In the same vein as many of those other Anime-based arena fighters like Naruto or Dragonball Xenoverse. It controls somewhat decent, but a couple of design decisions aren't my cup of tea (like, Special Moves all trigger a cutscene before actually executing the move and you get no i-frames once the game switches back from "movie mode" to the actual fight meaning you will more often then not get punished and kicked out of your special before anything noteworthy happens or limiting the arena with invisible walls). It's a kinda hectic, buttonmashy affair with no real lasting appeal. The "Super"-Attacks look amazing, but they are merely cutscenes - the rest of the game consists of evades/dodging and fishing for openings to attack/counter-attack. The dreadful camera (angle) doesn't help. I am pretty sure I would enjoy this more if it was a classic 2D fighter, something along the lines of SEGA's / ASW's Fist of the Northstar.

Once you are done with Storymode, there are a bunch of other modes to try out - but none of them struck me as particularly interesting. It all boils down to 1 on 1 fights, just with different conditions to earn more money or unlocks - but since the fights aren't all that fun to begin with, this just seems like a huge waste of time. I feel like the main reason for their existence is to have something to grind the ridiculous amounts of money needed to unlock a ton of collectibles - turning this game into another stupid grindfest for the sake of longevity or that replay value-BS. Something that I find REALLY off putting about games these days.

As stated earlier, might be worth a look if you are into Saint Seiya, but everyone else can skip this entirely. You ain't missing out.

I don't usually "review" games, but this game is how all the games should be! No just for Saint Seiya fans but for all gamers, to have the ability to unlock more content by yourself instead of "buyin" dlcs makes the game unique! Graphics are awesome and the game also bring back memories from childhood! This game is highly recommended!

Good game for fans of the series. Has the myth gold god clothes, has the sanctuary arc, poseidon arc, hades arc, and odin arc. Also has a mode where you play as the mythic god gold saints. Pretty much game of the year edition of Saint Seiya: Brave Soldier. Only problem is they havent patched the game in 6 months.

The game is amazing all around, but they still haven't fixed that bug that's been around since 1986 where Athena makes the most idiotic decisions imaginable in any context.

this saint seiya game is a fighting game that if you're a hardcore fighting game pro-player or whatsoever, you might not like it since the figting mechanic isn't that deep.
the game is designed to be easy-to-play, you can do combos without smashing buttons until they pop. the gameplay is kinda like naruto, if you had played one.

so let's get to the pros/cons real quick

+ soooooo many playable characters.
+ great special effects, so colourful. you go wink wink wuub wuub and boooomm .
+ beautiful bgm, BEAUTIFUL BGM.
+ you can buy costumes, characters, assist phrases (runes),.etc with your in-game currency. it'll take an age if you're 'gotta catch em all' type of player.
+ it's the MOTHERF-ING SAINT SEIYA lads.

+/- not so deep fighting mechanic, like it or not is up all up to you. i like it tho.

- the story is too fast-paced, if you haven't watched the anime, somehow, you might get a little bit lost.
- stages need to be purchased with your in-game money to use in versus mode, you can't just get it when you playthough the story.
- most lines are.... awkward. you know, typicall old anime style.
- the animation when they talk makes it even more.... awkward. they don't even make sad face when they're sad (you can tell that by the voice).
- if you play online and the game matches you with a player from the opposite side of the world, the game will be laggy as hell.

after getting a new character, i'll try out combos on saori
10/10 would pegasus ryuseiken that b*tch again.
...and again

actually it's a 7/10 if you want a serious review

Playing this game was like getting shot back to 1986 when Saint Seiya popped out from the void of an artist's imagination and turned into a popular Japanese anime. Finally, after 29 long years of countless manga, anime/movie adaptions and five game releases, it is good to know that we have yet again been blessed with a sixth addition to the video game series!

Saint Seiya: Soldiers' Souls is based on a very old anime where you take the role of four Saints of Athena; Seiya, Shun, Shiryu and Hyoga -- and sometimes Ikki if he's not too busy being a badass. The Saints' jobs are focused on the constant protection of the world from numerous perils along with safeguarding Athena who, despite being a Goddess of War and Wisdom, tends to get herself endangered quite often. Clad in Cloth -- magical armor blessed from the empyreal constellations above -- the four Saints (and occasionally five) must battle against strong foes and maximize their true potential!

The game, like the show, is a part of the fighting style genre. The game play mechanics has increased and improved drastically since its predecessors. These Gods are equipped with a variety of attacks ranging from basic to heavy attacks along with special moves; it’s easy to execute successful combos, making this a great pick for those who are not skilled veterans to the genre and would like to start somewhere light and easy. The controls for combat are smooth and definitely feel quick; I enjoyed the wide range of different fighting styles each character had to offer along with a player roster of 72, so trying them all out will be a task in itself but won't feel like a chore.

The cinematics and graphics aren't at its optimal level, nor is it chiseled to perfection, making the main campaign feel lackluster every time a character is perceived having a traumatic moment. While playing it, the player will come to think, "But is it sad? I don't know, his eyes are too damn pretty to look at!" But it’s to be expected, it’s a fighting game and most fans of the genre don't care much for the emotional rollercoaster, which is what visual novels are for! The price of $59.99 is steep but it's understandable for a big name title since most games standard point is $74.99-79.99, nowadays, so I shouldn't complain. There is quite a bit of replay value, with a campaign that’s long in duration, CPU battle arenas, as well as online battles and ranking systems! For the dedicated and the skilled, this game is definitely for you! However, for those with short attention span, and lack skills like myself, not so much to pay full price but good to try whenever it goes on sale. You never know, Saint Seiya: Soldiers' Souls may be the gateway game to draw you into the fighting genre scene!

Down below is a video preview of the game, it is available on PS4 but the footage below is strictly off of Steam/PC.

I really recoomend it if you are a fan, or at least know the history of the anime and enjoy a fun fighting game

PROS
* original voices - excelent voice acting, well synced
* lots of characters (although they could have inclued some silver saints and more specters)
* fun to play
* gameplay improvement compared to the previous games
* nostalgia
* multiplayer works just fine (I have NOT experienced lag)
* almost all sagas of the anime was covered
* no bugs - yeah, it would be mandatory, but lately all games are released with bugs (some major and big annoying ones) so this is (sadly) becoming a diferential
* MODS! the game looks like really easy to MOD, and some MODs are already on the scene, with new custom models/ sounds
* special moves animation are really similiar to the way saints perform it on the anime series

CONS
* no OST ( can be fixed with a MOD that puts the original musics in the game )
* no intro movie
* no bonus stage
* no animation of any saint dressing the armor, one thing that i really enjoyed watching on the anime
* lame cutscenes - almost no animation, saved by the voice actors that did a great job
* history is resume to a point that if you dont know it already you will be lost
* graphics could be better (worse comparing dbz/naruto games)
* fighting could be better too (comparing what we can get from dbz/naruto games)
* characters not really well balanced - there are some Saints that are a little stronger/easier to use then others (but all games have balance issues and maybe a patch can solve this)

The true worth of this game in my opinion is based on 2 elements:

1. Nostalgia.
Bring back memories of our childhood, watching them on tvs and such. Of course, it is also good for people who never knew about Saint Seiya, there will be new wave of fans.

2. Simplicity
The combat mode is very simple rather than Tekken, Street Fighter, and Dragon Ball Xenoverse. People will easily learn combos and find a character that will match their own fighting style. The rest is for players to formulate their own combos and play style and climb up the ranking system on online mode.

The graphics is also quite good, but it feels like a bit below Naruto and Dragon Ball.

On the other hand, I am quite disagree for the price. It should be around USD 10 lower than the current release price.

Huge saint seiya fan here! This game is very nostalgic and brings all good memory back. I just got all my achievements!

Pros: gameplay is much smoother than the last one. 60FPS is very important for a fighting game. Good graphics. Low system requirement.

Cons: BGMs are really bad, but lucky we have someone makes MOD to replace those mysics. Low texture and quality of shade,
