Game Completion 2018 #27 – The Banner Saga

  • Game: The Banner Saga
  • Platform: Switch
  • Developer: Stoic Studio
  • Publisher: Versus Evil

A terrific mix of The Oregan Trail, turn-based strategy and Bioware-style decision trees, crossed with gorgeous art and wonderful music.

A couple of bugs to report, which saw switching between handheld mode and the dock cause both audio issues and crashes during loading screens, but it was the final battle’s difficulty spike that nearly soured my experience right at the death. Turns out I just hadn’t figured out the right strategy.

For more on The Banner Saga, I talked about it in-depth on Episode 32 of the Switch Focus Podcast.

Looking forward to playing the sequel in a few weeks.
