The Banner Saga - Preview @ IGC

by Couchpotato, 2014-01-02 05:02:25

Invision Game Community has a new preview for The Banner Saga.

Cartoon-like graphics are my favourite. Everything has been beautifully designed to resemble a true look of Vikings. Rough face shapes, snow covered land, even buildings in villages and game’s map can be related to that wild age. It was like I time-travelled through centuries. Characters reminded me of Asterix and Obelix, except in-game ones were shaped with more details in mind. To accompany good graphics, sound effects fit in perfectly. Sword slashing and everything else is there, but not over exaggerated.

The game is done in a best way that Viking-themed RPG could have been done. Every battle is done in a different way and requires a good strategy tinkering before hitting the Ready button. The tutorial explains everything you need to know, though theory and practice are two different things. I am a big fan of Norse Myths and legends so this was just the perfect game, especially because it is an RPG one.
