  1. Banner Saga combat basically amounts to playing XCom-style health tetris (for capturing aliens alive) with every single enemy in every single combat for the entirety of the game, or the so called maim-not-kill strategy. Whilst the "maim don't kill" strategy can be effective, i prefer the "uninstall don't play" strategy. Oh, time to enjoy another run at FF Tactics or X-Com rather than the Banner Saga trilogy.

  2. This is probably one of the best debut games ever made. The game mechanics, sound effects, story, art and especially music is unbelievable. This trilogy will go down in history as a masterpiece in gaming.

  3. "reminding you that being a respectable leader is about more than just giving rousing speeches and making alliances."

    President Bonespurs could learn some things from this game. Alas, he's incapable of learning.

  4. As someone who doesn't typically play these kinds of games. I was very happily surprised by this game. I can't say enough good things about it. I do have friends who played it and were uninspired by it, so it may not be a game for all but certainly worth a try.

    If you like the first hour of playing it you'll know you'll enjoy it.

  5. This game is easily an 8, probably 10 when it comes to android simply because there are very few better things on mobile devices.

  6. I would describe The Banner Saga as Oregon Trail with the intricate decisions of The Walking Dead with the look of a Ralph Bakshi feature. To no surprise the game's main focus is its story, a high-fantasy epic that, considering the short length and budgeted design choices, was too ambitious for something of this scope.

    As strange as this might sound, I “barely liked” this game. I won't give it a thumbs down, but I won't be telling my friends to check it out either.

    Hoping I'll enjoy the sequel more.

  7. spends 90% of the time praising the game. Spends 10 % to talk about that he didn't liked some aspects of the end of the game. "7/10". Like, fuck you gamespot, go play next call of duty, go give it 9 or some shit. piece of shit review with no objectivity that makes no sense….

  8. Good game but it's so short.The combat is a bit lacking and ya I understand the taking away the Armour first shit.
    I would have liked to learn more about some of the peoples stories.
    I hope they actually finish this series lots of good games have been thrown into the shadows of time.

  9. What plot point being forgotten is he talking about? I've played through the game 3 times and I don't know what he's talking about….

  10. Come on Kevin! You can do better than that! Only a 7.0? :'( This game is definitely a 7.8 in my book. I know the numbers don't mean much to an attentive gamer, but that 7.0 can instantly turn A LOT of people away from the game. I know there are quite a few things that could have been improved, but I encounter ZERO technical errors throughout the entire game. (Which is saying a lot nowadays). If this game were an animate film I would watch the hell out of it, just saying.
