"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."

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

Wow...great turn-based-tactic game. At the beginning its hard to fight pvp, but you learn fast and the gaming mechanics are great. Community helps at the start (very nice people!), you ve got a lot of possibilities to create your individual combat group. Best Free2play I ever played....
You dont need to buy anything, but it helps a bit at the start.

Danke noch mal Valve noch mal, das es heute Free ist. Habe es nur einige Minuten Lang gespielt.Ein Super Spiel endlich mal eine Tolle Geschichte und spannend erzählt. Ich muss den Entwicklern Loben, leider kann ich nicht so gut Englisch.Ich habe es gemerkt mit der Geschichte wie früher, Wo noch Bioware noch gute Leute hatte und gute Geschichten erzählen kann.Leider heute nicht mehr. und die Ex-Biowareentwicklern eine ganz gute Arbeit geleist haben. So muss Rollenspiel- geschichte sein,Spannend erzählt und beim Strategie-Rpg einfach gehalten das auch Anfänger mit der Steuerung gut klar kommen.

Ein Dauemen hoch von mir, wer auf Herausforderung beim Kämpfen mag und sein kopf anstrengen will, ist hier gut auf gehoben.Für zwischen durch. Wenn es im Laden günstiger ist kaufe ich es mir noch mal. Das ich es mit Deutscher-untertitelen spielen kann um die Geschicht zu verfolgen.

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.

Note: As of this review, I've not played the single player version, The Banner Saga.

This game is a very simple turn-based brawler. In terms of pure mechanics, I'd say it plays like a stripped down X-COM: EU/EW, minus perma-death. Or like viking flavored chess. Of course, both of these examples are simplifications.

I really enjoy the balance of the gameplay. Even though it's pure PVP, I've never felt cheated, which IMO is unusual for a competitive multiplayer game. There's only a limited stock of different units, part of why the game is so balanced.

On the other hand, limited unit type means limited unit variation, which is unfortunate. I've come to understand that besides not including enemy faction units (the dredge) from the single player, there is at least one more viking unit missing.

Additionally, you earn Renown (your currency and XP) at a slow rate, clearly to induce you to go to the shop and spend real money. However, paying doesn't grant access to anything that anyone else can except for skins and extra renown.

While I've spent a shameful amount of time on this game, I have a proportionately substantial team to show for it and I haven't paid a dime. Unlike other F2Ps where I wondered "Well what was the point?" when I finally logged off.

It's free. It's balanced and fun. It's rewarding and beautiful to look at. I fully recommend giving 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.

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.

Wer sich ein Bild darüber machen will, wie ein zentraler Aspekt des Hauptspiels, das Kampfsystem von The Banner Saga, aussieht, kann sich hier einen guten Eindruck verschaffen.

Die Spielmechanik an sich ist gut durchdacht und einfach zu erlernen. Da man jedoch gegen menschliche Gegner antritt, kann das Spiel mitunter sehr fordernd sein.

Nettes Spiel für zwischendurch.

Für zwischendurch interessantes F2p Strategiespiel,mit schönem Look.
Die Zeichnungen können sich wirklich sehen lassen und sind sehr stimmig.

Kämpfe werden immer Fair ausgewählt,dh man trifft auf Gleichwertige Gegner.

Freunde von Rundenstrategie mit Rpg Elementen können aufjedenfall mal reinschaun.
