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.

While a good idea, SolSeraph just doesn’t seem to execute its ideas well enough to make it a good game. It’s a great concept but needs a bit more fleshed out.

I appreciate Ace Team's attempt here, I really do. It's kind of amazing that this game exists in 2019 under Sega. It's not as original as the team's past projects, but SolSeraph has a lot to like if you're looking for a modern take on an absolute gem of the 16-bit era. Part of me wonders how outlandish these creators could've gotten with a bigger budget and scope, but as a tribute, this still hits the spot.

It genuinely feels like an unfinished game in places, and it’s a real shame. If Ace Team had managed to put together any sort of decent side-scrolling action here it would have been on to a winner but, as it stands, this only goes to highlight what a miracle, what a classic for the ages Actraiser really is, whilst confirming itself as, unfortunately, one to avoid.

The totality of SolSeraph is a pleasant ride that recalls ActRaiser to a fault. While the platforming and tower defense strategy might have their maladies, they still fuse together to make an interesting and engaging game. It’s refreshing to see someone take a stab at such a winning concept, even if they stumble a bit on the way to the finish line.

Se ven las buenas intenciones de SolSeraph por los cuatro costados, pero también algunas decisiones cuestionables en el diseño jugable, visual y sonoro de la producción. Sus secciones de plataformas son muy disfrutables y variadas, todo lo contrario que los insulsos momentos de horda. La parte de tower defense es divertida y funcional, pero no es capaz de mantener el desafío cuando sumas todas las estructuras y se acaba convierte en un mero trámite entre sección y sección de acción.

Solseraph es la secuela de Actraiser que nunca tuvimos, con un enorme detalle puesto por el ACE Team en hacer del título una actualización fiel de las mecánicas de las dos entregas de aquella franquicia. Es también un juego bien acabado en general pero que podría haber rematado mejor algunos aspectos, lo que no empaña que sea un título recomendable, especialmente a los fans de los plataformas y tower defense.

SolSeraph setzt sich als Konzept zwischen alle Stühle: Es ist keine Hommage in neuem Gewand, aber auch keine in die Gegenwart transportierte Neuinterpretation. Zusammen mit den technischen Problemen ist es daher schwer, dem im Kern sympathischen Titel auch nur ansatzweise eine Empfehlung auszusprechen.
