Eager to please genre fans, Sakura Wars delivers an olds-chool experience with a hefty dose of drama.

One of the best attempts at an interactive anime ever, although the nonsensical story, weak combat, and dubious portrayal of female characters will ensure it a limited audience in the West.

Sakura Wars is not perfect, but it is a delightfully charming experience. Between the sweet bonding moments and high-stakes battles, there's plenty to cheer for.

Sakura Wars' unique world, fun character interactions, and high-stakes melodrama help it overcome mediocre action sequences.

It's not going to be a memorable tale, but this Sakura Wars is an enjoyable adventure while it lasts.

Sakura Wars represents an ambitious new start for the franchise, one that might not be to everyone's tastes.

Sakura Wars may be a crisp, fully 3D modern release, but every inch of the story, characters, and sound feels like it's straight out of the 90s. This soft-reboot may not revolutionise gaming as the original game did, but it still manages to deliver an expertly crafted love letter to those old-school stories and characters that will put a smile on anyone's face. The combat scenes may lack the same depth and intrigue as the story beats of the game, but they're a minor part of an otherwise unforgettable anime adventure.

It might look too shallow (and it probably is) in a first glimpse, but the representation of the characters is certainly charming. It's like giving life to a shonen TV show.
