Seven Deadly Sins: Knights Of Britannia is one of Bandai Namco's manga-based series of upcoming games scheduled to launch in 2018. Based on a Japanese fantasy-manga, the title already has a great advantage in terms of audience as the series has been a great success in both its anime and manga format. With the launch of its video game version, let's take a quick look on what some of the gaming industry's most respected critics have to say about the game.
"It felt like accidental fun. Like I wanted to enjoy what I was playing so much, I stumbled into a good time." Destructoid 4/10
Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia currently has a 59/100 Metascore made up of 1 positive, 12 mixed, and 2 negative response from 15 critics who were able to play and analyze the game. For a fan of the series, this is a bit disappointing as Bandai Namco has just launched the perfect video game version of Dragon Ball which is also anime/manga based.
"What could have been an exciting, funny, and rich game has turned out to be a dull experience, offering nothing to players but repetition with little challenge." Push Square 5/10
It seems the game has fallen short from what was expected as it seems that the game has multiple faults ranging from input delays, long grinds in unlocking skills, repetitive Adventure mode, no combos, to the game's lack of production value making the entire game a "dull" experience. Overall, Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia is still a great game for a loyal fan to pick-up and add to the series' memorabilia collection, playing the game is another story. Check out the launch trailer of the game below and stay tuned for more gaming news and updates.
