The Banner Saga - Two More Reviews

by Couchpotato, 2014-01-29 03:17:13

Just two more reviews to add to the large collection already for The Banner Saga.

TruePCGaming - No Score

The Banner Saga is a slow game that requires some patience while it chugs along and shows you its wondrous sights.  If it had not gained as much traction and appeared out of nowhere as the first game of some unknown small studio instead, it might easily have gone under among bigger, louder games.  But that’s thankfully not the case, and Kickstarter-powered production values and good design decisions help turn this into a rare treat.

iGame Responsibly - 4/5

If The Banner Saga is an example of what supremely talented people can accomplish with a relatively shoestring budget thanks to crowd funding, traditional game publishers should be concerned. This is a game built with a lot of passion, and it shows in every meticulous detail. From the art, to the world-building, to the branching storyline; everything smacks of a big budget affair. Stoic is a developer to watch, and assuming King will get the hell out-of-the-way, there are great things to come from these guys.
