Surnommé le clone de Zelda façon Sega, Soleil enthousiasmera ceux qui, je cite, « en ont marre des jeux de rôle torchés en deux jours ».

En su momento fue un gran juego y hoy sigue siendo recordado con cariño por mucha gente. Algunos lo acusan de parecerse mucho a Zelda, pero Soleil logra crear un estilo propio gracias al uso de los animales. En definitiva, todo amante de los juegos de rol debería jugarlo, pues Soleil es uno de esos lanzamientos para el que no pasan los años.

What a game. Centy provided the kind of enjoyment found in a game such as Zelda 3. The graphics and music are very well done, the story is cool, the quest is vast and I love the way your character can perform so many tasks. More than just the sum of it's parts. Centy is one of those games that can consume you for days on end.

Como conclusión Soleil es un juego impresionante, brillante en cada uno de sus apartados y con una jugabilidad muy marcada. Su argumento se vuelve mas intenso a medida que avanzas, con inesperados giros argumentales fundidos con filosofía. Todo ello da a Soleil una personalidad única que no encontrarás en ningún otro juego. Solo ensombrecido por su duración, estamos ante uno de los mejores action RPG de todos los tiempos, inolvidable.

Si aun así el veredicto ha sido de explosivo y adictivo, os podéis hacer una idea de la calidad que atesoran sus 16 megas. Le sobran cualidades jugátiles, resaltan sus coloristas gráficos, esconde detalles de gran complejidad y sus laberintos plagados de alternativas atrapan sin remisión. En fin, que los amantes de la aventura estáis de enhorabuena.

En resumidas cuentas. Soleil es un juego estupendo y, sobre todas las cosas, encantador. Por él no pasa el tiempo, se mantiene como un venerable anciano con espíritu joven. Te atrapa desde el principio con una trama sencilla pero hasta los topes de sorpresas y originalidad, con trasfondo moral y moraleja incluidos, algo no demasiado frecuente de ver ni siquiera en estos tiempos que corren. No te dejes engañar por su aspecto, te cautivará.

Only fans of "old-school" Action/RPGs in the same vein as Landstalker need apply. The only real problem with this game lies in the fact that it won't take RPG fans very long to complete (unlike the older Landstalker). Crusader of Centy/Soleil is a great Action/RPG that suffers from the age-old problem of being too short for its own good, yet is too fun to ignore. Just enjoy the ride and the sights you see along the way while it lasts. Also keep an eye out for Sonic's cameo appearance. I must admit, playing this game when it first came out feels like yesterday. Where's the harm in succumbing to nostalgia every once in a while by taking a brief detour down memory lane?

Was Zelda III den Super Nintendo-Jüngern, soll Soleil den Sega-Fans werden? Naja, zumindest fast, denn ganz so gut durchgestylt wie das große Vorbild ist dieses Action-Adventure nämlich nicht. Trotzdem sollte sich jeder halbwegs ambitionierte Abenteurer dieses Game nicht entgehen lassen, denn der beschwingte Sound und die witzigen Grafiken bauen mit den guten deutschen Texten eine dichte Atmosphäre auf. Mankos? Die gibt leider auch, denn die Idee mit den verschiedenen Tieren und deren Kombination ist zwar im Grunde nicht schlecht, aber ich vermisse doch noch andere Ausrüstungsgegenstände wie bessere Schilde, Schwerter, usw. Außerdem sind meiner Meinung nach zu wenig wirkliche Rätsel mit von der Partie.

Développé pour contrer The Legend of Zelda, Soleil s'en sort plutôt bien, même s'il ne parvient pas au même niveau que son rival. Il faut dire que le défi était de taille. Mais le petit RPG de Sega mérite le détour pour la richesse et l'originalité de son gameplay ainsi que pour l'ambiance globale qui s'en dégage. Grâce à la variété des environnements et leurs styles graphiques et sonores particuliers, Soleil ne laisse aucune place à la routine ou à la répétitivité et procure un plaisir de jeu d'une grande intensité. Traverser ce monde magique aux côtés d'animaux amicaux est une expérience inoubliable !

Selv om Soleil har noen overtoner som spiller i Kristendommens tegn (f.eks møter du Gud og får en lekse i dødelighet) vil de minste sette stor pris på dette. RPG-fans av Zelda behøver heller ikke å se vekk, Crusader of Centy tilbyr mye fin gåteløsning, med et musikkspor som er både passende og eventyrfrelst.

He doesn't have more gadgets than James Bond. So what? He lacks a cool, pointy hat and only has a bandana. Is that a problem? He only fights corny, pathetic looking bosses. That's nothing to be ashamed of, is it? Well maybe a little. And all of those gadgets were really cool. And I liked that hat… Okay, so Corona isn't half as much a hero as Link, but that doesn't mean that his game was bad.

Soleil est un bijou. Une petite merveille d'un genre que l'on retrouve malheureusement trop peu sur Megadrive, ni même ailleurs. C'est une friandise sucrée et délicieuse, et comme toute friandise une fois qu'on l'a terminée on trouve que l'on n'en a pas eu assez.

Forget Centy if you're a serious RPG fan (in that case, forget Zelda too) because you'll breeze through it so fast that you'll only want more. But if you have a younger sibling who won't leave your Phantasy Star IV or Final Fantasy II carts alone, hand them this game.

What does Centy have that Zelda didn't? It's got Sonic, a little sharper graphics and that about covers it. However, Crusader of Centy is the best Zelda clone yet and the closest Genesis owners are ever gonna come to Zelda. So if you like your RPGs filled with action and your heroes with purple hats. Crusader of Centy is a great choice.

If you're an RPG fan, you've probably already gotten your hands on a copy of this game and know how cool it is; if you aren't a fan, then I would definitely recommend that you give Crusader of Centy a spin. I spent many hours slack-jawed in front of my TV, trying to solve just one more puzzle, and for me, that's unusual behavior.

Crusader of Centy stands on its own as a solidly fun – if brief – adventure, and one of the better ones the Genesis has to offer. So if you've got money to blow, go for it; it's a worthwhile addition to any library.

Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM)
Crusade of Centy is one of the best games I've seen on the Genesis in a long time. It's an action/RPG on par to the Zelda series. There aren't enough RPGs on the Genesis and when one is as outstanding as this one, it stands out. The story is cool and there are lots of areas to explore. It plays well, although a bit slow. Crusade of Centy is a good game. Atlus should be thanked for this cart.

Jag hade hört ryktas att detta skulle vara ett lätt spel, men det kan jag inte hålla med om. Nattliga mardrömmar, ofrivilliga darrningar i hela kroppen och en nästan obeskrivlig längtan att bränna hela skiten på bål (sakta) har jag tampats med innan jag med vill hjälp från Dr. Roffe lyckades ta mig mot slutet. Som sagt, Soleil är ett helt OK lir, men varför alltid samma tjatiga story?

Soleil est bon Zelda-like, qui souffre hélas d'un manque de profondeur. Mais ses énigmes, son ambiance enchanteresse et son système d'animaux réussi devrait combler les amateurs du genre. A essayer!
