    Unbound Saga is one brutally boring brawler.

    Unbound Saga has a tempting premise and a snazzy style, complete with visual sound effects, but the brawling action can't hold a candle to Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, or even Turtles in Time Re-Shelled. As a fan of the genre, it saddens me to say that the best thing about Unbound Saga is the unusually cool soundtrack.

    The ten-dollar price tag also feels a bit steep for a game that doesn't have much else going for it, other than a customary multiplayer component. Five dollars would have fit like a glove. If you're a fan of brawlers and you decide to pick it up, your best bet would be to wait for a price drop.

    No-one cared when this was released on PSP in summer 2009, and they certainly won't give a flying fig about it now.

    Unbound Saga is a decent enough brawler. You get to pick up and throw homeless people against a wall, which is always fun, and the story itself is good enough to have you button-mash your way to its finale. But its basic, sluggish gameplay is stuck in the '90s. In this age we expect more.

    It's far from the best brawler on XBLA, but Saga is fun enough to warrant a look. [Feb 2011, p.78]

    Unbound Saga is a beautiful, poorly executed snoozer that can't hold the player's attention for too long.

    Ultimately fairly soulless. [Issue#68, p.101]

    Could have been a great action game with bigger areas and less tedious enemies.

    For 800 MS Points, it might not be worth the cash considering there are other beat'em up alternatives on the XBLA. It certainly can provide a challenge, but many gamers today may not have the attention span for modern side-scrolling beat 'em ups such as this.
