Saint Dragon is a bit of a surprise, really. You don't normally expect a great deal from a budget re-release, so if you find a game that's fun, challenging and also attractive to look at - a bit like Saint Dragon, in fact - it's a bit of a bonus. Perhaps Saint Dragon will remind the software houses of how much fun a good shoot-'em-up has the potential to be.
The Atari Times
The weak points of the game is it's lack of innovative ideas. It can't compete with genre classics like R-Type
. If a shoot'em up game is not innovative it should at least score in the audiovisual department - but Saint Dragon
fails there too. It isn't a total failure - it surely is a nice conversion.Saint Dragon
may be a good game for beginners but if you want to see good action games stick to Turrican
, Wings of Death
or Xenon II
ASM (Aktueller Software Markt)
Alles in allem dürfte Saint Dragon gerade für heißhungrige Ballerfans interessant sein, doch auch „Otto-Normal-Verbraucher“ kommt auf seine Kosten.
