Favorite anime. Favorite vidyagme.
There's just one thing I'm missing, the Steel Saints. I consider them being more significant rather than characters with lack of importance *ahem* Ichi *ahem*
Rest is fine, includes the whole plot and explains it pretty well for peeps who didn't watch the anime yet.

Did I enjoy playing this game? YES. Can I recommend it to anyone? NOT REALLY, especially if you consider that insanely high price!

Trying to keep pros and cons simple:

+ Brings back a lot of memories. I love Saint Seiya (or CDZ, how we call it in Brazil) since I was very little. That was my first anime, really, and it's basically as old as as I am.

+ One of the game modes lets you run through the same fights as in the original anime and there's really a trip down the memory lane. Amazing!
- But if you're unfamiliar with Saint Seiya, don't even bother. The story goes by so fast in this game you won't understand a thing.

+ It's a decent fighting game...
- But very, very simple. And once you learn how to master Shun's long-ranged chains--Heavy, Heavy, Heavy Explosive, run to the enemy, charge cosmo, rinse and repeat--, the game is yours.

+ The VO in Brazilian Portuguese is AWESOME! They managed to gather the same people from when the anime was dubbed about 2 decades ago. That's really this game's high point.
- But the written translation really sucks. The dubbers managed to fix a few of the mistakes (even though it's not their job), but I expected perfect QA from such an expensive game. Even if forgive tons of punctuation and spelling errors, the translators didn't seem to have even bothered to research how the names of characters and special moves were originally translated.

+ There are lots of stuff (cloths, assist phrases, music, figurines etc) to unlock...
- And, although most of them are fun to collect, a few of them are insanely grindy.

+ You can also play online against other people...
- At least in theory, because I could never find a match. Online seems a lot more dead than dead characters in Saint Seiya =p

+ Graphics are very loyal to the series and the moves are very pretty to watch, especially Big Bang Attacks
- But the polygons overlapping, series of lazy repeated animations and other issues makes this game look a lot older than it is.


Final words:

All in all, this game is decent enough to play if you're a die-hard fan of Saint Seiya and if you don't consider that crazy price tag. Would I get this again if I had the chance to rethink (I bought it when it was 66% off, btw... that should've been the full price)? Probably, but only because I'm really a huge fan.

If you're still thinking of buying it, you probably love the series as much as I do, so go ahead. But keep in mind that this is just a money grab game. Shut up and take my money--rekindling old memories feels really good sometimes ;)

Extreme nostalgia for me.

Particularly with the original music mod. It plays decently enough, and while the voice acting is... well performed but badly directed, it still hits ALL the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ nostalgia notes.
Fairly flashy. Recommended for cheap. Doubly so with the music mod.

With the Mexican dub, you can tell that the voice actor that played Seiya was not well. Amazing dedication.

Really difficult to recommend this game.

It's systems and mechanics are a step up from the naruto series, but the singleplayer is basically scenes of people standing across from each other with limited movement and effectively discuss how they're going to fight each other. If you're a fan of the series it might be fun, but for someone who has no idea about anything, this story mode is pretty uninspired, and just straight up boring.

It's not a competitive fighter by any means, and there's really not many people who even play this online anymore.

Not worth buying unless you're a massive fan of the series, which I'm not.

If you've played the Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm games, you have an idea of what to expect with this one. I'll say this though, I prefer this combat over Storm. It feels a bit more like a standard fighting game along with those anime fighter aspects to it. The character designs range from hysterical to bad*ss as f*ck. The story doesn't take too long and nets you most of the characters. The Gold Saint mode will also net you some great characters and all the while you can earn in game currency to purchase the remaining characaters and maps. Can't see much wrong with this if you enjoy anime fighters or the Saint Seiya franchise. Give it a shot.

My computer runs Witcher 3 or the Assasin creed games perfectly. The FPS of this game though is less than 20. I think the port is bad and doesnt work with my msi gaming laptop. The Internet solutuins dosnt work either. This port is very bad.

Saint seiya game is a simplistic fighting game if you're a hardcore player looking for huge combos footsies etc you might not enjoy it.

Pros:
-Its Saint Seiya
-The graphics while not great their flashy and colorful
-I really liked most of the soundtrack of the game especially some"pump me up"tracks before the big battles.
-A plethora of unlockables such as costumes,new abilities,stages etc

Cons:
-The game doesnt do a good job explaining the story
-Online is dead
-Too much grinding if you're a completionist

Verdict:
I enjoyed my time with Saint Seiya,it was a refreshing blast from the past but it has its shortcomings its gets 7.5/10
Try to get it in a sale the original price is very steep for what it offers.

Solid 8/10

Fans of the anime will enjoy the story mode. Not only does it contain The Santuary, Asgard, Poseidon, and Hades arcs, it also has elements from the spinoff "Saint Seiya:Soul of Gold" anime.

Not 10/10 because:
- it is missing the original soundtracks -- which was specially upsetting for me during the Poseidon arc.
- Soul of Gold "arc" is not quite an arc and only has the Gold Saints with their God armors -- none of the enemies from the anime(during this arc) appear in game nor does it follow the same story.
- The Hades arc felt rushed and only 5-6 enemies appeared out of the possible 108. Even the anime had more.

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)

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!

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.
