The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia
Top Critic Average
A colorful fighting game that feeds off a popular anime. Only for the biggest fans, the rest shouldn't waste their time nor money.

The controls are relatively simple, the combo, parry, and evade are easy enough to execute and the missions have a good difficulty curve…
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia is a compact but pleasant action game that has a surprising amount of content for fans of the show to enjoy.
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.
Even with an IP as interesting as The Seven Deadly Sins, The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia is held back by buggy controls and even more buggy mechanics.
