"A mixture of ocean-like tactical depth and frantic mid-match pacing that feels impressively different."
Rock Paper Shotgun

"When you first boot it up, you'll probably find yourself just... staring."

- Kotaku

"In The Banner Saga you feel the cost of every unit weighing on you... Factions might be the Saving Private Ryan of RPGs."

This game is under "Favorites" in my library. It's a free to play multiplayer game that almost anyone can run.
If you want a mature community and a game in which you fight with opponents that are clever and intelligent, this is the game for you.
Certainly not one of Pay-to-win titles.
I like how the art is done and the soundtrack itself is incredible.
Start playing this game, outmaneuver your opponents, upgrade your warriors, participate in tournaments or just play against your friend.
Next to Chess and Worms Armageddon, this is the game I would play with my family members.
10/10 - This is the game I would play rather than some overrated AAA crap!

I played the solo campain with great pleasure. Ambiance, strong fight mecanisms and nice artwork are still there but...

This declination is a pay to win with quite a bad interface where you always search how to do things.

Please avoid pay to win games, they have to disapear.

Great game. Artwork is unique and amazing. The strategy has a lot of depth and you'll get punished if you just blindly do something in a battle

There's a few things that this game definitely needs however. The major one would be more base unit types
Right now it only has Warrior, Shieldbanger, Archer and Raider. Each of these units can be upgraded to 3 types. But I believe the game needs AT LEAST 2 more base units to give it more depth. I think the single player has some more units so I hope they add that to the multi as well and add more base units in future

Also a little more customization would be nice. Only customization you currently have is different colors for units which looks a bit repetitive after a while

All in all a solid strategy game but has potential for to do even better

Matches take forever because you are required to do more actions/confirmations each turn, animations are slow and opponents intentionally wait for turn to end.

So, just play the single player game because multiplayer isn't fun when you have so long matches and you get so little rewards. Upgrades cost too much so you can Pay To Advance if you feel like it (you probably don't).

Very good PVP-game if you've a fan of the strategy elements of Banner Saga. Very good balanced, but exp is hard to come by. Drives me angry that you can specific klasses only with real money but a free game is a free game, right? :D
Definitively worth a try!

A light-heartened adventure. A truely beautiful game. Incredible animation and character buit-up. I came to this game by its art, and I love it for its gameplay. It's a shame that not many people play it. Highly recommended for anyone who love Turn-based tactics games.

The potential in the game is vast as this game is amazing! If your into turn based games this is a must have! at first i wasn't familiar with the theme and it was far from what i was used to. But i learned to love it and the community that comes along with it! Who know's, i might see you around on it if you give it a try.

If you like the gameplay then it's a good game to kill some free time. It's not very captivating but it's free, beautiful and entertaining. At least you can try :)

One thing I noticed when playing this is that the game looks noticeably better in-game than in the screenshots. The colors are more vibrant and there are some visual effects whereas in the screenshots it looks old and washed out. Like other tactical games, the ones that stand out as one of the 'good ones', Banner Saga: Factions is easy to learn and hard to master. The file size is small so you don't have to wait very long for the download in order to try it. Also, it's not pay-to-win.

Seemingly simple, yet difficult to master tactics game..

Fantastic artwork, and a really old-school feeling on all of it. I really liked the game, even though I usually hate MMORPG and similar kind of games. It really feels like the ol' good turn-based multiplayer that some gamers like me miss so much.

If you like tactics games and multiplayer this game has quite a bit of depth to it. The hand animated character models really feel like living things, and theres quite a bit of polish. There haven't been any huge balance tweaks in a while, but the core game is amazing. Can't wait for the single player to release!

It's viking themed, its artwork design is retro-stylish and reminiscent of golden Disney era and it resembles chess but with more diversity and "easy to grasp difficult to master" mechanics. It has an awesome community and it's free to play with no pay-to-win features.

If you have played The Banner Saga, you know what to expect.

If you have not, well, it is a game for those MMO enthusiasts who like a slower pace, more calculating approach and generally leaning towards chess rather than Wipeout in their games. Only complaints I would have are the same as for the "original" TBS: we could use more animation and more (i.e. any) voiceover. Other than that, the graphics are delightful, the atmosphere is great and the audio is fantastic.

Definitely for the calmer, more realxed gamer. If you want a game for long winter evenings you will not be disappointed.

An excellent game with plenty of strategy if you persevere and learn the mechanics. In contrast to some other reviews out there, there is no real random element to this game if you learn how to play it, and learning the game is made all the easier by the friendly community which are always happy to help. I can't reccommend this game enough and as it's free there's no reason not to try it!

You can see the more technical reviews of this game at IGN, etc., but I want to highlight the one thing that makes this game so great: simplicity that belies its depth. The number of combinations of moves and overarching strategies that can win a given match are so numerous that having played this game for months, I haven't exhausted trying new things and even succeeding at them. Accusations that the game is 'boring' for reasons such as lack of unit diversity, etc., actually fail to see the best part of the game.
