The Banner Saga - Factions Impressions @ RTSGuru
 
Some impressions of The Banner Saga: Factions are available at RTSGuru.

Upon starting the game, the first thing most will notice is that it really is beautifully animated. It makes me personally look forward more to The Banner Saga if this style and animation accurately reflects what we’ll see later. The map upon which you battle is the Great Hall, and there are multiple things to catch the eye inside. Your warriors aren’t static either, and they will move with taunts and rituals. Setting up battles can take some time to get started, with moving your units into place and coming close enough to engage, but this is typical for a game of this type. Those expecting fast-paced action will want to try something else. But for those that can appreciate the deliberate tactical gameplay here, The Banner Saga: Factions has something to offer.

The Banner Saga: Factions is fun to play and tries to strike that balance between accessible to most players and still fun and challenging for the tactical specialists out there.
More information.

How can you compare the two? One is an actual single player game, with story and other game mechanics (other than combat).
While the other one, is just a multiplayer combat, with nothing else….

They are really pushing the Factions part of the game. All you hear about is Factions. I can remember only one article dedicated to the campaign.

Since Factions has just been released and the single player game is slated for release much later, that is not entirely surprising. I think what people might be forgetting is that whilst 700k was a good result, it is still a fraction of what it really costs to make a game with this kind of sophistication. The original plan was based on a much simpler game in late 2012. So they've got to eat.

I hope they make some money from factions, but I'm not a fan of F2P with microtransactions; everyone who goes to the party should bring a bottle and I don't want people drinking mine when they've been too mean to get their own. Make those mean ******* pay!
