Análisis

"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."

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

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!

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).

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.

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.

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 :)

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.

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.

Un juego de estrategia por turnos como los clásicos Heroes o King's bounty, pero solo en las peleas, el mismo por lo que vi, únicamente tenes la ciudad donde estas todo el tiempo, no hay exploración ni nada similar, solo una ciudad donde compras/mejoras unidades, las mismas las podes subir de nivel cuando ganan experiencia en batalla, aunque esto último no me quedo tan claro dentro del juego, por otro lado al ser un juego gratis, se tiene la opción de comprar “cartas” por así decirlo con personajes de nivel alto, o para mejorar los que ya tenes automáticamente algo así, la grafica esta buena es un ambiente como hecho en flash, con animaciones fuera de lo común en 3D, aunque también al estar todo basado en vikingos se pone medio repetitivo la parte visual y parece muy limitado la cantidad de unidades diferentes, también te limita cuando creas la tropa en algunos tipo de unidades aunque tengas de reservas, solo te deja llevar 1 o 2, lo cual quita la táctica real de cada uno haciéndote jugar con lo que el juego te permite, los combates son todos online, osea versus otras personas, aunque tiene un tutorial para aprender a jugar, que en realidad no es muy necesario ya que es sumamente simple de jugarlo, en resumen yo le doy 5/10

Gran juego para aquellos amantes de los juegos de estrategía, en el que todas las decisiones cuentan y que pueden cambiarte la tema principal así como las historias de algunos personajes.

Los gráficos son preciosos. Me recuerdan las pelis de animación de Don Bluth. La mecánica, combate táctico por turnos en un tablero, siempre me ha gustado. Y que fuerza y vida sean la misma cosa lo encuentro muy acertado. Pero el juego carece de historia y es multijugador. Modo que encima no acaba de funcionar. Pero me ha servido para conocer la mecánica que tendrán los combates en el juego para un jugador de pago que saldrá en unos dias.
