Default The Banner Saga - Factions Impressions @ RTSGuru

March 2nd, 2013, 02:21
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.
