This is a fun game and is a must-buy for people who love role-playing games. For the people who usually like blowing things up instead, this would be a great game to rent to introduce you to the world of role-playing. Who knows? It might catch you by surprise and turn you into a fan like me.

Finally, I have to give full credit to the translators and writers of the English version. This game is filled with subtle, sharp language and modern day lingo; it's an all-around well-produced game many people will love.

Guardian's Crusade is a well above average RPG. It is extremely true to its roots while giving us some very fresh twists. A bit on the easy side but overall it is an enjoyable adventure. I had a fun time playing it despite it having two things in it that I really don't enjoy: the silent hero and monster breeding. The game does so many things well that these aspects hardly bothered me, and if you like breeding you should probably give this game serious consideration for purchase. RPG fans should commend Activision for taking a risk on this game and let's hope that they keep on taking those risks.
Guardian Heroes is a nice little tale about a boy and his "pet" whatever it is. It weaves an involving storyline and is coupled with some truly unique gameplay elements. You get to battle a wide range of monsters as a knight armed with up to 71 spells and a back-up squad of "living toys" with special powers. You can find and use more than 50 weapons, including the Holy Sword, over 100 types of armor, and over 50 magical items. Now that's what I would call a heavily armed crusader!

Halleluj - nach einiger Zeit wieder Nachschub für die ausgehungerten PAL-Rollenspieler. Wenn Ihr schon mit den Fingern am Tisch kratzend, auf neues Futter wartet, solltet Ihr sofort zuschlagen. Seid jedoch glückliche Besitzer einer NTSC-Konsole, gibt es wirklich Besseres zu kaufen (zumal ja die US-Fassung von FF8 schon in den Startlöchern steht). Sehr stark bemängeln muß ich die Kameraführung. Die meiste Zeit verbringt Ihr damit, Euch zu orientieren bzw. Eure Figur überhaupt zu entdecken. Stoty-technisch wird auch nur Einheitsbrei geboten.
Mega Fun (Apr, 1999)
Einfach knuddelig, kann ich nur sagen! Auch wenn ich anfangs wegen der kunterbunten Smartiesgrafik ein wenig die Nase rümpfte, musste ich schneit feststellen, dass in der gesamten Story keinerlei Durchgänger liegen. Einzig die verschlungene Komplexität anderer Vorzeigespiele der Kategorie RPG vermisse ich ein wenig. Allerdings besticht Guardian‘s Crusade mit eleganter Menüführung und durchdachter Steuerung. Frei rotierbar verschafft man sich stets die günstigste Perspektive, um alle Locations genauestens erforschen zu dürfen. Neu ist, dass in einem RPG der Dual Shock unterstützt wird. Allerdings fällt das Vibrieren mehr in die Schublade „mehr schlecht als recht“.
GameSpot (Mar 29, 1999)
If you fire up Guardian's Crusade expecting an epic confrontation between the forces of good and evil, you're destined to come away disappointed. Approach the game without preconceptions, and you're likely to be pleasantly surprised. Charming, sweet, and unpretentious, Guardian's Crusade never pretends to be anything besides an enjoyable RPG. For gamers burnt out on MTV-advertised hype-fests and derivative super-deformed tales, that could be more than enough.
Power Unlimited (May, 1999)
Guardian's Crusade is een hele aardige game voor de beginnende RPG'er. Alle benodigde ingrediënten zijn aanwezig en het ziet er nog best leuk uit ook!
Joypad (Dec, 1998)
Graphismes simples et mignons, histoire charmante et ennemis pas très impressionnants sont le lot de ce RPG pour enfant. Car, même s'il est bien réalisé, il n'intéressera que peu de gens en France.
Även om det är färgrikt så finns det inget i Guardian's Crusade som kommer att attrahera ett rollspelsfan. Och ingen annan heller. Trist nog.
Game Revolution (Mar, 1999)
If you're a serious RPG gamer, or have been on the planet for more than eight years, stay clear of this game. It's destined to join its Tamagotchi brethren in the discount pile of toy stores everywhere.
NowGamer (May 24, 1999)
Beside from these killer kiddy playthings, Guardian’s Crusade meets the minimum requirements of what an RPG should be and nothing more. Here, everybody, is the skeletal structure we mentioned. There is nothing meaty or challenging about the gameplay, nothing to jerk your eyeballs right out of their sockets and nothing to stop you from falling into a very deep, deep sleep…
