ST Format
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 and Gradius. 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.
