    Fans will have a great time with this game. The battle system looks similar to the anime and the cutscenes are very very good.

    If you are a Saint Seiya fan (as I am), you will most likely enjoy Sanctuary Battle despite its imperfections. However, whereas as it is a good game for fans in general, it is no less true that the controls are a bit rough and that the gameplay gets too repetitive when you have played for some hours.

    I appreciate that they developed this game for PS3 in a moment when there were not

    I appreciate that they developed this game for PS3 in a moment when there were not Saint Seiya video games other than the old ones. Besides, it somehow lays the foundations for the subsequent games of the franchise, and it is the only platforming Saint Seiya of the next generation.

    There are explosively brief thrills to be had, but makes it really hard for most peeps to give it a chance. [June 2012, p.72]

    A dodgily produced cash-in of a chestnut anime. [May 2012, p81]

    Saint Seiya isn't exactly a great game. It's a game that suffers from repetition, an awkward camera, and button bashing to beat generic enemies (bosses save this situation).
