Banner Saga is my favorite tactics style game in a few years. I played it on PS4 first, and it's awesome. The music is haunting and beautiful, the art style is exceptional, the story is incredible. It's a phenominal game. Also instantly my favorite game so far on a phone or tablet. Really looking forward to a sequel. I wish more games like this existed. Bravo. But I am having some problems with it on my phone now. It's loading slow, sometimes freezes during load, and the world map is black for me. All I see is a small character potrait in the circle at the bottom. I hate to dock it a star for technical issues, but it's difficult to play on this device. It's fabulous on PS4 though.
This game is an elegantly produced piece of art. It has an engrossing story that takes you on a journey through an imaginative apocalyptic world. It has many finely fleshed out characters. The music and art are really beautiful. What a wonderful mobile port! When I first tried this game on my phone it was unplayable. My new tablet played it without a hitch. I learned to appreciate the chess like turn structure over time, though it was uncomfortable at first (being used to other SRPG games.) It added to the challenge. No messy ads or additional purchases to break immersion. My biggest complaint is that all good things end. This is one of the best games on mobile. I am looking forward to Banner Saga 3!
Liked the PC version. Downloaded this four times and then it won't install..Just gets to 100 and starts over the download. Disappointed. EDIT… got it to load after a permission issue. Load times still make it unplayable and if you are jumping off a subway and want to close your phone...You are going to lose a save.
Nothing short of a masterpiece and the ascethics are a breathtaking work of art. I just finished The Banner Saga on mobile and cannot wait to play the next installment. The gameplay is challenging, but rewarding. The story is engrossing, I made each choice ever so carefully and was both surprised and horrified at different turns in the journey. The mobile experience can be a little cumbersome and difficult to control at times, but it is worth it for the experience of the game. I love your work and I cannot wait to continue of with this sorry I hope carries on in this unfolding epic! Great job.
I love the gameplay and the story so far but I am having trouble enjoying it due to the stuttering during gameplay and the excessively long loading times. Even the small loading animation stutters. The floor turns black if the screen locks momentarily. I have an 801 chip and 3gb ram so I was not expecting any problems prior to purchasing this game.
One of the original games on mobile.. Great story and characters. One annoyance is that when returning to battle after screen turns off, the background turns black and characters frames go missing..had to restart the game every time this happens..is there a fix? Will give 5 stars if there is..
