The Seven Deadly Sins Review
The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia is a game based off the fairly popular shounen anime, The Seven Deadly Sins. As season 3 of the anime just started airing in Japan, taking a look at the video game again is worth a look.
Originally, The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia sold for $60, and to be frank, it wasn't worth it. At the moment, it's only $27.35 on Amazon for the PlayStation 4 version. This is a much fairer price for a game like this.
Why is The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia Worth Less Than $30?
The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia suffers from a lot of problems. Bandai Namco loves to re-use assets on lower budget games, and The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia is no exception. Meaning a lot of buildings, characters, and environments will be copy pasted, repeating over and over again. You'll hear this with enemy voices and it's very off-putting. It depends on your tolerance for lower-budget games, but some people won't be able to handle hearing the same voices and words come out of the same enemies in a very short amount of time.
All of the audio is in Japanese with subtitles. No surprise for an anime game on a lower budget. When it released, The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia was a full $60. For a game based on an anime, which has more reliance on story, that's a lot of money to ask for a game that doesn't even have dubs.On the bright side, the game does feature the original voice actors from the Japanese anime, which really helps to make everything more immersive for fans of the anime who watch it dubbed.
Game play consists mostly of short, time restricted fighting missions. It's a bit like a mash up of J-Stars, Dynasty Warriors, and a typical hack and slash game.
Walk Through The Story
On the bright side, The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia does follow the anime and manga. It released on February 9th, 2018, so it doesn't cover the new arcs. But it's a great way to catch up on the story before you jump back into the anime with season 3, as long as you remember what happened in season 2, as the game only covers season 1 of the anime.
Great For Fans Of The Game
The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia is definitely designed for fans of the series. You won't want to touch it if you don't like the show, obviously. These types of anime games tend to rely heavily on the characters and story from the anime at the cost of having deep game play or fancy graphics. While the graphics aren't bad, you will see re-used assets.
But, if you're a fan of the series and want more Meliodas, Ban, Hawk, King, Dianne, and the rest of the cast it's a great way to enjoy the Seven Deadly Sin's universe.
