SolSeraph’s definitely a successful copycat that lacks originality. If you haven’t heard of or played ActRaiser, SolSeraph will seem quite unique. It’s an example of the finished product being greater than the sum of its parts: a good action platformer combined with a good RTS that makes for a very good package. If you were hoping for another ActRaiser game someday, this may be the best you’ll ever get. But if you hold ActRaiser dear to your heart, you may get offended at how much SolSeraph essentially remakes that wonderful game.
SolSeraph's modern take on ActRaiser's decades-old formula is so boring and repetitive that it crumbles under the weight of the torch it’s trying to carry.
SolSeraph is a faithful homage to ActRaiser, one of the Super Nintendo’s best games, but it doesn’t shine quite as brightly as the classic it pays tribute to. The side-scrolling sections admirably recreate the feeling of playing a 16-bit action game, but the levels themselves are a mixed bag. Some have real stakes, others feel strangely abbreviated. And the city-building, while intuitive and fun, throws strategy out the window entirely. As a result, SolSeraph is shallow, but fun, nostalgia snack food.
