A modern-day interpretation of ActRaiser feels like a gift straight from the heavens.
The fondly remembered Super Nintendo classic was a novel concept back in the day, and all these years later, it still stands out. ActRaiser offered an intriguing blend of town-building god game and side-scrolling action-platformer, two very different styles that ended up complementing each other well.
SolSeraph isn’t a direct sequel to the SNES classic, but it’s clear where the game’s heart lies. Ace Team, the studio behind Zeno Clash and Rock of Ages, has another flawed but memorable game on its hands.
