Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
St Seiya is an old manga, from the 1980 which has been very succesful in some EU countries (belgium, France, italy, Spain those as far as I know)for more than 20 years. It is not a surprise to see the adaptation of this maanga on PS2.

Ok if you are new to the St seiya world and never heard of it, it won't be the game of the year but it will still give you some fun time and maybe it would be a very goood introduction to the manga or the anime. neverthless you are new or not, I do believe playing to battle of Sanctuary first is very not important thing to do. In this "short" review I will try to give two points of view. one from the novice who never hear about it and one from someone who grow up with that anime.

You are a novice(experiemented with two st seiya virgins)

Graphics:
Ok the graphics are a bit old and you will expect a bit much more from a playstation 2. I have to say the 3D graphics style did not attract me at all, I would have preferred a more cartonnist style of graphic and 2D would have been far better.

Story:
...well it is a bit confusing, there are bit there where they have to fight that thing and why on earth are those armors????? I really a have some diffficult to be attach to these characteres and who is the best?????

Control:
Simple but also a bit confusing, you have the combo buttons which are easy to do but you have to fill the cosmo energy bar which take an age (not really 2 mins easy)

Would you play again? well not really I believe it fun for 1 or 2 hours then I would not bother to finish the game.

Rating for the game?
