"Banner Saga 2" is a combination of two strategic and role-playing styles. when fighting, the game becomes a turn-based strategic game that you have to destroy enemies with a number of people. it's interesting that the gameplay mechanism seems to be very simple at first, just moving and knocking people, But a feature made a unpredictable charm to the gameplay! the diversity of forces! There is not only a huge difference between the races of the game, but each race contains special classes that brings the gameplay's tactility and challenging to limitless verity! "Banner Saga 2" is a continue worthy of the first copy, which will adds more and more thirst to player for the third version experience and end to this epic. If I want to compare the epic intensity of the game with such titles as Skyrim and Dragon Age, I haven't exaggerated. The Banner Saga series can be called one of the best independent titles of the new generation, not just fans of role-playing, but everyone will be amazed by watching the quality of this game!
I have to admit that the game made a huge impression on me after the great first part, the second one keeps the same level of love put into it. There are more classes, more skills, more threads, more information about the world. Apart from that, the creators have made a great Survival mode that gives the game a second life even after the campaign. It's also worth to mention a brilliant soundtrack.
Just completed the game and I'd like to say that it was good. Artwork is amazing, so is the music and the general atmosphere that you feel during the gameplay. Didn't like the ending at all, simply because it's not an actual end and I guess Banner Saga 3 is coming. Overall, buy it if you have completed the first part. It definetly worth it's money.
The Banner Saga 2 is a game developed by Stoic and published by Versus Evil and is the sequel to The Banner Saga. The Banner Saga 2 is an epic story set in a fantasy nordic-like world. It has RPG/tactical gameplay and a bit of resources management The story of this game is great, even 12 hours into the game and I still haven't completed the whole campaign! It does has a depressive/end of the world mood that is rare to be seen in games. The soudtrack is outstanding, it fits greatly with the game helping creating the right sensations at the right moments The artistic style is inovative and very beautiful especially the animated cutscenes! The choices you make are good and make the game shape itself as you play it. It adds replay value and great a better bond between the player and the game Although, The Banner Saga 2 is a beautiful and well produced indie game that any fan of RPG's and tactical gameplay should give it a try!
The only thing I can say. That game is great. Is still has a great plot which starts a few moments after the ending of the first part of the trilogy. Don't misunderstand me, but it is still somewhat deep with a few twists and great parts but it is not as good as it was in the previous game. Your choices do matter. They always did and they will be. Even a one or two bad decisions may make a difference by lowering the morale or losing men. That's the best part of the game. Also what needs to be praised is a graphic. It didn't changed since the 1st part but it is still a pretty world and it doesn't have to change, especially if you have a landscapes like that. They're sometimes very good but some might find them repetitive. The same goes for the music. It is simply amazing. Climatic and moving especially in some parts of the game. Overall I think that this is a one of a pretty much excellent game if you like to make decisions that do matter.
