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

"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."

So you put together a team of viking and giant warriors and fight short tactical turnbased fights and tournaments to get renown, wich is used to buy more space for warriors or upgrade your warriors. You get matched against players with the same combined level of fighters, resulting in very even matches.
The combat system is identical to the banner saga, with the only exception of some small changes to the abilities of some units.

Though I strongly recommend the game, there are some issues that you should know before playing.

First of all it is a player vs player only game. There is no training mode or single player, if you want that you have to buy The banner Saga (strongly recommended as well).

The second major issue is that the game seems kind of forgotten by the developers, there are memory leak issues that cause lag, and updates are close to nonexistent.

The third issue is that most player quit due to the first two, or the fact that the gameplay changes very little over time, resulting in very few players online at any moment. This of course can cause painfully long periods of waiting for a match. This is also to some extent caused by the matching system, in wich you may be unable to battle anyone at all if you don't have enough warriors to put together teams of different levels (ironically happens predominantly to new players).

With those things out of the way, this is really fun and challenging game for you tactics fans. The turn system is different from many other games and is of extreme tactical importance, and to me the number of classes and restrictions are enough for a large umber of tactics and combos.

Adressing the issues: The first becomes a non-issue after like four fights. The community is great and everyone are excited for new players and will help you get started.
The second issue is bad, but in theory if more people play it the devs should work more to upgrade it. It will also likely get a boost after the release of newly announced TBS2.
The third issue is the hard one. I personally don't think its boring, just as I dont think chess is boring, even if chess hasnt got any upgrades or new skins for decades =). And remember that many quit because there are too few players already. what kind of logic is that? But I won't judge anyone who played the game for a year and a half, waiting for someone to fix the lag and crash issues, and stopped playing when nothing happened.

Try it out though. it's Free! and fun!

Very nice game but too bad there are so few players and the matchmaking system works hard with the lack of people problem. Hope more players will come....It's a great game i repeat!

Unexpectedly well balanced for a turn-based game. The armor mechanic is neat. Community is small and there is no ongoing development, but its free. If you like tactical games you could do worse.

This game has sucked up more of my life then any other game of Steam to date and with good reason. Essentially a complex version of chess, this game became my obsession for a good six months. While the servers are not nearly as busy as they were during its hayday, the game is still a superb demonstration of how to develop a rich deep combat turn-based combat system with high replay value. Add to that some of the most beautiful hand drawn artwork I have seen since Monkey Island 3 and you have a winner. For those looking for a better single player, offline experience, I recommend the single player game that was the catalyst for this, The Banner Saga (and hopefully soon) its sequel, The Banner Saga 2.

Great turn based game with some original ideas.

+ Great artwork.
+ Great music. Absolutely loved it.
+ The two stats of armor and health really work very nicely and remove luck-based results. You can really plan your course of action and the one with the superior strategy will win.
