The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights Of Britannia is a game that will please the anime fans thanks to its wonderful combats and a complete story mode. However, this is not a game for those how are not fond of animation, since it is its best feature.

Overall cutscenes are stunning and using vivid colors makes it beautiful in a way. Locations for battle mode or just the map of Britannia is breathtaking. Simple combat systems although stiff and laggy but humorous conversation exchange between characters may want you to give in a little.

The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia is an incredibly fun, addicting and fast paced action brawler that fans of the anime series will really enjoy. If you enjoyed how the Naruto Ninja Storm or Dragon Ball Budokai games played you’ll feel right at home with this game. While it is let down by it’s visual quality at times and you may find yourself struggling with the camera during a battle it still had me returning over and over again to try and unlock that next rune to make my favourite characters even better.

If you are a fan of The Seven Deadly Sins, maybe you can find something enjoyable in this game. The gameplay is simple, and the graphics are not very polished, so if you are looking for a good fighting game, you have better options to look for.

The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia has many mistakes that can hinder your gaming experience. Thanks to its various mechanics and the detail of the destruction of the stage, as well as the variety of characters, this title make the path less heavy while we look for other sins.

Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia seems try and offer a little something for everyone — which is both the game's selling point and downfall. Though it is accessible and enjoyable for many, it means everything that makes the anime so enjoyable is being spread too thin. It needs to be more focused, less complicated, and the good aspects need to be made great.

You won't find anything here that makes the original Manga so special but the game manages to delivery some interesting side quests and gameplay to keep you entertained for some hours.

A failed attempt to reprise the anime's success with a game that never gets too interesting on its gameplay or its narrative. A missed opportunity to make another a great anime adaptation to videogame

The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia is a wasted opportunity. Battles are repetitive and the roster is unbalanced. Also, the grapichs reminds of a PS3 game.

The controls are relatively simple, the combo, parry, and evade are easy enough to execute and the missions have a good difficulty curve…

All said, The Seven Deadly Sins is a fun anime franchise, and that sense of fun does translate to the game. It's not a perfect game by any means, and has some genuinely aggravating elements, though, and that means it is going to be one that only fans of the franchise are going to enjoy.

Despite its best intention to create an interactive story adventure, The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia can be incredibly repetitive with its missions. There is a lot of flashy combat but the performance in battle is highly disappointing and the camera can be difficult to follow making it tricky to land combos.

Perhaps if the next games were to head to a completely different directions, I would try another Seven Deadly Sins game, but until then, I can't recommend it to anyone who's already seen the anime series.

It's a shame that Seven Deadly Sins first forte into videogames couldn't have been better. As a big fan I enjoyed the Knights of Britannia for what it is but most will find it mediocre at best.

The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia is a disappointing game for fans of Nakaba Suzuki anime, and doesn't have enough to even appeal to fighting or action game fans.

Short, dull, and technically weak, The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia is a mediocre game, that will probably be appreciated only by the younger and more hardcore fans of the saga created by Nakaba Suzuki.

With such stellar source material, it's a real shame that The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia is so disappointing. 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.

The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia is a game with an interesting idea and unfortunate incarnation.The characters and the fights are made well, but the same type of tasks and poorly submitted story make single-player mode a useless experience, and multiplayer is just boring.

Unfortunately The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia just doesn't do justice to the series at all. There are a few hours of fun to be had here, certainly, but even dedicated fans will find that it doesn't last long enough. Repetitive battles and shallow combat just don't keep things interesting for long enough, even if there are several characters to use. Add a point to the score if you're a fan, remove one if you don't know what SDS is.

It's sad when a video game title based on an anime/manga series is unable to capture the magic and fluidity fans of said series rightfully expect. Unfortunately, The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia manages to disappoint in just about every category and fails at capturing just about anything that makes the series memorable. If you've been itching to have a go at this game, I'd recommend that you just wait for a price drop. Unfortunately, I can't say that The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia will be as fondly remembered as many of the older anime games that came before it.

After being such a fan of the anime, I really wanted to fall in love with The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia. I was really hoping to see the same treatment given to Naruto or Attack on Titan, where the game really brings to life the anime in a fun, challenging, and engaging way. What was released sadly, was a game with some interesting ideas that failed to fully deliver on any of them. The game isn't terrible by any means, with some fans of the show sure to enjoy reliving Elizabeth's quest, but there is too much wasted potential here. If you don't mind the obvious lack of depth here, you can have some fun playing the game, just don't expect that fun to last.

A colorful fighting game that feeds off a popular anime. Only for the biggest fans, the rest shouldn't waste their time nor money.

At the very least, I was hoping this would be a game to entice people to check out the series or highlight the great moments that make Seven Deadly Sins a great Shōnen anime. Instead, we have a game that could potentially confuse newcomers, and which provides very little for big fans of the series.

There's a tease of depth in the fights, and I even managed to have quite a bit of fun when things fell into place. Too often, however, it felt like accidental fun. Like I wanted to enjoy what I was playing so much, I stumbled into a good time.

It's hard to recommend The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia to anyone but the most hardcore fans of the original series. Even then, though, I feel like a true fan would end their time with this game wishing they could have bought something better. A truncated story mode makes it impossible for newcomers to engage with any of the plot, and what little content that remains will only infuriate existing fans. It would be nice to be able to jump into Duel Mode and bypass Adventure Mode entirely, but when practically the entire cast needs to be unlocked, that really isn't an option. Long-time fans of Seven Deadly Sins might find some joy in seeing their favourite characters make the jump to a big, 3D action game, but that alone is hardly worth suffering through the rest of what this poor package has to offer.
