This game offers much if you dive into the game itself rather than the mechanics, since it will only get you frustrated about things like your strong characters dying on events and such.

Your caravan is on a long journey in dangerous wilderness, so you can't expect that everyone of your "heroes" survive and live happily ever after. If someone dies you can load the most recent save file, but that will ruin the game's experience and frustrate you even more, since you have to go through many events over again. Instead of that you should just keep going and try to replace that character with another from your roster. This mechanic also encourages you not to make one powerhouse that will take the weakest enemies with one blow, which will kinda ruin the gaming experience too.

I've also read other people reviews of this game's choice making events and telling how random based quessing they are, but I didn't really find them to be anything like that, since when you think through the possible consequences you should be fine, but there is those event where you can't predict exactly what will happen and sometimes those events will take your characters life, but that is part of the game.

There has been complaiments about the missing save option, which prevents you from saving after and before every event so you can preserve you roster/crew by replaying those events until you get the best alternative. (I think they wanted to it be that way. Just a quess.)

Combat system is very unique and I think it's exclusive to this game (not sure). RPG elements are definately present in the combat with varying troops, abilities and level up system. There has been some complaiments about the fact, that you have limited preparation in battle, again this is no field trip, so you can't know what you are up against until you are there.

Art in the game is amazing and it suits the game perfectly. Music, well I listened to the soundtrack before bying the game and it was one of the reasons I bought the game. They have putted much effort to the characters and their personalities which are definately present in desicion making events and you should consider about them when you make the desicions.

Overall this game offers unique experience to other strategy RPGs and that can be fact why some people don't like it. Because it is differing, you should play it in a different way too.

One of the best deals you can get from summer sale 2014, so buy it while it is on sale. It's worth of every cent, even when it's not on sale and remember that most of the things in the game are ment to be like they are.

(This my 5 hour of gameplay review. Would have played longer, but it's late. I really had to write about how awesome this game is so it stayed up to write this review, since the sale won't last forever and i don't want anyone that is thinking about buying this game miss out on it. My deepest apologies for my broken english and grammar.)

Juu ei helvetti, jos olis 13,95e niin pakottaisin ihmiset ostamaan. Tämä on nimittäin tasan 14e arvone peli. Peli aiheutti pahan mielen hyvällä tavalla. Ainiin.... peli vaatii kohtalaisesti keskivertoa enemmän koholla olevan älykkyysosamäärän pelaajaltaan.

I backed this game on Kickstarter very early on, basically after having read the words "turn based strategy" and "vikings" and had very high hopes for the project.
During the first hour of play I was entusiastic and impressed with the artwork, the graphical style, the music and the combat system. It runs well, I encountered no major bugs, and the story starts very intense and engrossing.
Now, after nearing the end of my first (and, most likely, only) playthrough I can sum up my personal experience with a single sentence: I learned to *thoroughly* hate this game.
I'm terribly sorry, I desperately wanted to like this, but with every tedious, frustrating and boring hour of gameplay I had to concede, that just about *every* design choice made by Stoic seems to go diametrically against my personal preferences.
Trying to cast an objective vote, I'd rate it about 5 out of 10, because there are undoubtedly many things good about the game, but the essence of what it's about - having fun, being motivated and enjoying the time spent playing - simply doesn't happen.
TBS is the very definition of a railroaded game. More than that, it actually *feels* like more than half of the time I'm actually watching pointless, endlessly repeating nice backgrounds scrolling past, while nothing happens. Events are scarce, and when they happen, they kill my motivation and the RPG aspect. Because, frankly, I'm NOT making decisions. I'm playing a random guessing game, in most cases with absolutely *no* clue on what the consequences of the 4 "choose your answer" alternatives *might* even be. I hate playing a game where I don't even know the rules, and I hate winning every battle and then losing my heroes (and the associated investment!) to random dialogue events.
The world map is like a bad joke on my expense, as it serves absolutely *no* function in the game but as a "choose your flavour text" library. It feels like there's an entire aspect of the game simply never implemented here...
Same goes for character development and resource management. Both are oversimplified, shallow and simply feel completely unfinished. Each character has one single item slot, and the items available are nothing special. Abilities are pretty much predetermined, and dividing 10 points you *might* receive during 5 ranks isn't that big a deal towards diverity or individualization.
There is one single resource for everything (renown) and one single sure way to acquire it (by killing enemies in combat). Sometimes you might draw a lucky card during the random dialogue guessing game and acquire some extra, but that's it. As the resource is used to buy supplies, items *and* for leveling up your heroes, it comes down to either have your caravan starve or run around with level 1 heroes, despite them having earned several promotions on the battlefield. That kills motivation on such an epic scale, and can't even begin to describe it.
There are no side quests, no method to forage for food, trade, to gain extra renown or anything - remember, you are on one long, single track railway and never look left or right. You will *never* feel in control of *anything* in this game. For me, however, that is what gaming should be about.
Even the combat system, one of the best parts otherwise, has several unnerving flaws that started bothering me in the long run:
- You are forced to choose your team *and* the sequence in which they act *before* you know anything about the enemies you will face. Why is there even a deployment phase at the begin of combat if all you do there is arrange the predetermined team on the board? That placement will be void after one round of movement, a wrong party mix or suboptimal sequence will stay, however.
- the way the two sides take turns is beyond silly. If you face a single, strong opponent, that one will act 6 times for every ONCE your heroes do something, as it's always the *sides* that take turns.
- one stat for hitpoints AND combat effectiveness basically means, that the battles are decided in the first round. The side that starts taking hits is the side that will lose. Always. Without a way to regain strength, a single hit can de facto disable a hero. The whole system is too simplistic, counter-intuitive and artificial. Simple to understand, but never becomes fun for me.
And another main grief is the complete absense of a save game feature. Not because of technical problems, but simply because the designers want to forbid me to play the game any other way than to live with the random outcome of their nonsensical guessing games. Sorry, folks, I'm 45 years old, have been playing games for 30 years and don't need *anyone* to tell me how to. This arrogant patronizing annoys me to kingdom come!
So, again, sorry Stoic for being so negative, but this game is so totally NOT my piece of cake. Terrific art, great lore, good music and a stable game do NOT equal fun, I'm afraid. Lots of bad design choices for me equal de-motivation, tedium, boredom and frustration. Others might love this game, probably the majority. But it's definitely 100% not for me - and the files were deleted after that completely silly, unfair and annoying final battle.

Despite always handing players a crummy hand, the consistent drawbacks in The Banner Saga are exhilarating, even if they are utterly exhausting as well. While a sporadic bout of good news may flow through the caravan, the tone is clear. It’s an arduous journey and one that will come with death at all times. With an authentically illustrated ambience of harsh winters and closely followed characters, its story seen through tough conversations becomes that much more captivating. Offering simple yet fully symbiotic combat options as an active counterpart to text, this game leaves little to be desired, except the will to survive.
