This game is beautiful but the story steals the show.
The game is very good, but the presentation is not. It’s been over a year after the new iPad Pro was launched (now even on its second iteration), and still graphics have not been updated. That means big black borders all around. Now with real mouse support, this kinds of games are way more appealing to play. They just need to be kept updated. Also, where is 3?
An absolutely beautifully made work of art. We just need the developer to actually port the 3rd installment to iOS so that we can actually finish the story.
Love the game getting impatient for the third on iOS
Please release Banner Saga 3 on iOS!
I am addicted to the unique turn-base mechanics that this game has! It was very tempting to META game from the start but I held myself back and finished the game on hard without any guides. I was surprised how this game also takes your “game choices” very seriously too so don’t regret and keep moving forward!
Amazing storyline and sound Also props to whoever designed the characters which are all original and unique.
The game is a bit complex but so much fun! Omg love it, we need more REAL role playing games were you are playing a role! The varied turn-based combat is also a delight. The great graphics and amazing cut scenes just put this over the top, can’t possibly recommend it more. Kudos,
We need more games like this - you pay a fair price and you get an engaging game that’s an enjoyable pastime for a good few hours. Story and tactical design are pretty decent. It did descend into the classic boring boss level (are we never going to get rid of that horrible old saw that is the copout of every fighting game?). Could have been more story, and the decision points are often pretty arbitrary, But all in all, this is an example of what tablet gaming can and should be.
-The fighting is tactical and fun, addictive indeed.
Beautiful and fun, I am glad I picked it.
