Amazing graphics and story, well-balanced gameplay, choices actually matter. One wrong tactical descision can cost lives, and it makes you really have to pay attention and care about the choices. I played the first Banner Saga, and was not disappointed. I especially like the options to be Rook or Alete depending on (SPOILER FOR FIRST GAME) who you chose to let die. Keep up the amazing work developers!
Great story and fantastic combat and character development - but HOLY LOADING SCREENS, BATMAN! I've now finished both BS1 and BS2, and can't wait to see where the story takes us. Additionally, I love how I get to level up my characters and the combat mechanics overall. That said, the loading screens are not for the weak of heart - on both my old and new phone, in both games, I have to sit there for 15-30 seconds waiting for simple screens - character selection, opening menu, etc, to load. I don't understand why. This is worth it for a dedicated fan like me, but would surely turn new players off.
This game is great! But after this last update my saved game is gone! And it won't sign into my Google play account (Maybe that's why it's gone). Even when I hit sign in, it asks me to create a new one. Please fix! Or am I missing something...?
The writing, art, and soundtrack are all excellent. To me, it felt like my choices and battle results had a big impact on the flow of the story. The uncertainty around big choices i made added a tension to the game that really drew me in. I really enjoyed this game and banner saga 1. In fact, I'd say this is one of my favorite games. Looking forward to banner saga 3!
Terrible installer. Broken. I have a 300 Mbps connection, says over 100 hours to load. Forget that. Versus did refund my money, and people who can actually play the game seem to like it. Giving credit for that.
Great story progression, but a lot less fighting than the first. I wish there were more battles. Also the size of the army rarely seemed to come into play in the battles like it did in the first one. People in the army die, doesn't seem to make a difference to my decisions.
