    The gameplay is solid action, not quite a fighting game, not quite an RPG, and always an action filled beat 'em up. The slowdown is awful, the pixilation is annoying, but the character designs themselves are fine.
  2. Although it contains RPG elements, Advance Guardian Heroes is really an action game that requires fast reflexes and arcade-style fighting skills. [Nov 2004, p.131]
  3. There's an alarming lack of polish, with characters looking more like rough sketches than finalised art and only boasting a few frames of animation. The storyline is also hard to follow thanks to roughshod translation and there are difficulty spikes to test the patience of any gamer.
  4. With a rough translation alongside a bevy of ridiculous technical problems, it's hard to recommend this game. However, the overall style and multiplayer aspects got the better of me.
  5. 60
    Its unbelievably irritating technical problems and underwhelming art style doesn't bring back the magic fans might be expecting.
  6. The slow down problem, the wonky character models, and horrible text, and the double tapped "A" jump button feature need a complete reworking.
  7. 20
    Simply an awful game and isn't deserving of your time or money.

    Although heaped full of slowdown, you should come to expect that from a Treasure game - it's part of the experience. The depth? Deep Although heaped full of slowdown, you should come to expect that from a Treasure game - it's part of the experience. The depth? Deep enough. The story? Wacky enough. The translation? Hilarious enough. The game? Absolutely terrific. If it's not in your collection, you are not a gamer. Expand
