The Banner Saga

The Banner Saga 2.6.45

A grim, foreboding, and depressing tale - but don't let that put you off

Set in a grim, Viking inspired, fantasy world, The Banner Saga is a strategy RPG that tells the story of a world after the Gods are gone. With no deities, the Sun has died, leaving the lands in a dark, perpetual winter. The remaining races are struggling to make the best of this dismal world, but the evil Dredge are stirring, and you must lead a caravan of warriors to push back their assault.

PROS

  • Stunning design and world building
  • Accessible but deep strategy combat
  • Wonderful, if depressing, narrative

CONS

  • Random deaths will annoy perfectionists
  • Personally, I would love more voice work
