The Banner Saga - Editorial @ VGU

Video Games Uncovered has a new article calling The Banner Saga a Bioware plot in a different skin.

During playing the opening hours of Stoic’s The Banner Saga during our preview, I fell in love. The art direction looks almost effortlessly beautiful and the world had my immediate attention. It shied away from fantasy cliché, with no frozen dwarves, elves or goblins in sight. That was what I thought anyway, until the plot eventually reaches a point where it becomes a Bioware game. This may sound like a negative, and to a certain degree it is in this context, but give me a moment to explain before you think I hate the Canadian developer.
