Banner Saga 2 Reviews

These games are so amazing. Youve done a wonderful job with both of them. Its been a while so, where is part 3?!

So much fun! Artwork just as beautiful as BS1 also!

The story has some real weight to it. You really feel like the world is ending and you feel even more powerless when your choices end up killing clansmen, and even worst, when one of your decisions permakills one of your hero characters. The battles push you harder and further than the battles in the first game. Some abilities have been added and some like the shieldmaster(or what ever the class is called) have been nerfed but are still viable. The new hero and enemy types add some welcome variety. We loved the training challenges in camp throughout the story. Have not played survival yet but the base game is good enough. Wish the third was on here, and for a lot of people that is a deal breaker, but this game is great as a stand alone. It has a good amount of replay ability. The music is just as good as the first, the artwork is great too.

We havent played BS1 and dont normally play RPGs, but we tried this out & im hooked. Gameplay is easy to understand. The art & writing are fantastic.

Do not miss out on this gaming experience, they dont come along nearly often enough. The story is like a book you cant put down, the choices incredibly well thought out, rarely black and white with characters drawn so vividly caring about the outcome is all but compulsory. The gameplay is satisfying with balanced mechanics and at first glance simple yet fun turn based combat easy to grasp while masking a much deeper strategic and tactical system underneath allowing clever use of synergies, positioning, unique class abilities and more, giving you plenty to dig into and master. It builds and improves on its predecessor, fine tuning gameplay, adding classes and including additional features like destructible physical barricades and an addition we particularly enjoyed- optional training combat scenarios that teach how new abilities work and can best be utilized while rewarding the ever needed resource termed renown. Speaking of which the resource system is simple, but brilliant. Do you spend renown on supplies to keep your people from starving and dying, spend it to level up your heroes or purchasing gear/items. And managing that balance of resource is crucial. We cant recommend this Saga enough and have pestered, cajoled, pressured friend after friend to get it/play it and not one has been disappointed. Writing a review for a game we enjoy is quite rare; but a game like this- we had too. Dont think we’ve written a review since divinity2 or witcher3. The only real complaint is wanting more!!! More story more game more everything and luckily we still have the concluding entry of the trilogy to look forward to, banner saga 3. To anyone reading and considering. You are in for a treat. And if you have the option play on iPad over iPhone. The extra screen size is ideal.

We loved the first Banner Saga and Banner Saga 2 is even better. We were happy to see that they rebalanced the costs of promoting characters and also brought more functionality to features we pretty much ignored the first time around (e.g. Training tent). While the first installment was compelling because the world they built was so rich, we find the story more involving in the sequel. There’s a mystery at the heart of the story and we’ll certainly play BS3 so we can see how it all plays out. Thanks for a beautiful game!

Each frame is a work of art. Played this before banner saga one (on accident) and still loooooove this game. You form a close bond with every character, and it makes you really care what happens to them. Cant wait for banner saga 3 in 2018.

We played both regular and survival mode. The artwork is great and we like the strategic form of battle. Well worth the $$$.

Fun game but you need to finish the trilogy and give us #3 on mobile. Dont leave us hangin.

Great strategic combat experience but the language can be a huge barrier since the choices that you make during the story mode determines what characters and amount resources you are going to get. Thanks for reading our comment!

We’ve now played through Banner Saga 2 four times in order to see how the different choices affect the ending. A great dynamic, in a fantastic game with wonderful visuals and great storytelling. Looking forward to the third installment!

The second installment built in the first in amazing ways. We have fallen in love with this story all over again. Keep up the phenomenal work, Stoic studios!

Do you plan to make banner saga 3 available on mobile? Its best platform is on mobile we do own this on pc as well but find it more tedious. Really really love your product. Please make more games like this.

Buy the series games like we said. Some of the best money you will spend on games period. Play the first game first. Well duh…. But these games are great. Waiting for the third installment to come to ios. Amazing stories. Fights. Choices. Character development forced and chosen. Sigh. More games like this please! They did so well that we love the back ground noise and music it makes it so immersive. You will know what we mean. This is a gaming company that truly cares about the platform and the game it puts out. From a customer thank you.

Such an amazing series. As a lover of Tactical RPGs, The Banner Saga really is the cream of the crop when it comes to storytelling, creative mechanics, and it just looks good setting such a bleak tone with quite a bit of replayability we will forever be disappointed that we arent able to finish the original trilogy on mobile. We even own the series on PC, but would still like the chance to play it through on mobile, too.

We have replayed the game probably twice per installation per year. One thing thats confusing is the name of import saves from BS1 to BS2 is confusing and feels switched. Like we just imported our save from playing through as Rook and choosing to sacrifice Alette, but the import save is labeled as Alette. Only way we wouldve known that the saved game will load as Rook was trying to remember what day we started playing which save.

We really love the lore, and the story building and tough choices to make, And growing up mostly focused on art classes we absolutely loved the art work and way its implemented, we really hope Banner Saga 3 comes to iOS because we really want to continue our story badly!!!

Great game that manages to outshine its predecessor.

Eagerly awaiting the chance to own the complete trilogy on our ipad, will be a day 1 purchase once it finally hits the app store. Here’s hoping for Q1 2019 :)

The Saga continues, and so does our fascination. Once again, Stoic delivers on its unique platform in the continuation of Banner Saga. We are excited for TBS3! Please continue your fantastic work!

Inspiring story and beautifully strategic!

All heart here. We mean yeah, its not Squaresoft but its about the best indie strategy game we’ve seen. We caught the Robert Jordan influence btw. ;) Just wish it was longer. ::sigh:;

First things first… THIS GAME AND ITS SEQUEL ARE WITHOUT A DOUBT, The top 5 Games you could get on this platform. Due to BS we’ve bought this game and the second one twice… But it is MORE THAN WORTH IT! The story, the voice acting, the setting, the decision making (NOT BLACK AND WHITE AND BELIEVE ME YOU CANNOT PREDICT THE RESULTS OF YOUR CHOICES LIKE A MASS EFFECT STYLE GAME) There arnt enough compliments we can give this game (and BS2) So summarizing…. IF YOU LIKE TURN BASED STRATEGY, Fantasy, RPGs, Or Are looking for a good story… BUY THESE GAMES…. YOU MOST CERTAINLY WILL NOT REGRET IT. Love and respect everyone. -Jim.

This is the single greatest app we have ever bought. Beautiful artwork, amazing music, and a deep, rich compelling story. This game not only succeeds in continuing a great series (or should we say saga) but outdoes its predecessor in every way. We were left desperate for more by the games end, and could easily play the whole thing again.

Will a fix be pushed to iOS sometime? We’ve been wanting to run another play through and the game refuses to load.

Just as great as the first one. Beautiful art, music, characters, and interesting story. The only problem we have is a couple of the fights are ridiculously hard even on easy mode. The one under the mountain is really difficult and glitches in a couple spots where the characters cant move. We had to replay that fight at least 10 times. Another hard fight is later on the bridge. We had such a difficult time with it, we had to put the game away for a month before we wanted to try again. And the ending was a little less satisfying than last time. Still great but definitely left us surprised that was where it ended.

Artfully made strategy game with a story heavy choice/ reward mini-game component. – Beautiful art and story. – Game journey map with great lore. – Deep and satisfying strategic combat. Our only complaint (which is the same on consoles / desktop) is the lack of ability to rotate the camera. – Im grateful such an awesome game is available on iOS in the first place, so thank you! – Of course, part 3 would be great!

The decisions you make affect things way down the line. Engaging. Love the animation. Probably more fun on an iPad due to the smaller icons and text. But great game overall.

We really enjoy this game. The craft and love is visible in every frame. The music and VO are outstanding. The only knock is that on an iPhone it’s tiny and sometimes have to use a magnifying glass to see the small wording.

We’ve definitely enjoyed this game Im hoping Stoic makes Banner saga 4 as a spin-off using other characters point of view show a new side to the banner saga lore or a prequel.

Def getting the third when its out.

We played Banner 1 and Factions a while back and loved them. Banner 2 is the perfect sequel to the first game. Recommended for anyone who loves a rich and intricate story, beautiful artwork, and engaging and thoughtful gameplay.

The Banner Saga 1 and 2 are definitely our favorite games we’ve ever played on the App Store. The story, characters, artwork, and gameplay are all absolutely incredible. You will not regret buying these two games. We just really wish The Banner Saga 3 would come out on mobile! Please put it out soon!

As a fan of Norse lore, this game really hits home with us. Both a masterpiece of gameplay and storyline.

We play Banner Saga 2 on the iPad Air 2 and it runs great. The iPad is a great interface for this game. We love the continuity where characters built up from Banner Saga can pick right up in Banner Saga 2 (and into Banner Saga 3 when it comes out). Lots of variations to be tested and tried by varying and mixing combinations of characters, skills and items, especially in Survival Mode. Can’t say enough good things about this game – one of our all-time favorites.

The sequel to The Banner Saga is tactically deeper, with improved battle variety, more character types, and more character abilities. The story is just as rich and darkly moving as the first. The art is still spectacular. This is a must if you enjoyed the original.

Beautiful design and amazing story with decisions that truly make you nervous. We love playing strategy games on our phone and this series is by far the best experience we’ve had.

Love this game, considering buying the trilogy for xbone when it comes out, but we’ve got kids so console gaming is rare these days. If you were debating getting, just do it and thank us later, obviously buy bs1 first!

While it can be argued that the story in this game can be a little lagging compared to the first (some call it the middle story syndrome) it has a excess of lore and story that show how much the developers and community have put into this game. On the gameplay side it is incredible how the characters work. We have played through two times and found two teams consisting of mostly different characters who have unique stories and abilities to help you in your battles. In the end the second Banner Saga is a real improvement that very few could have predicted how great its become.

The storytelling is fantastic. The gameplay keeps you coming back. Reminds us of choose your own adventure books where you reread to see what happens on each different path.

First off, it’s great to see a complex strategy game with simple mechanics. The battles harken back to real chess like planning. You have to be thinking several moves in advance. Awesome stuff. Storytelling! RPG! It’s all here. Take on the role of the main character, but even good choices have consequences. Betrayal, investigation, clan morale, and magic items are just a few of the wonderful things in this world that will engulf you. A+. One of the best games ever, period… Not just on our phone.

Gorgeous strategy game. It’s outstanding.

We cant even begin to express our love for this game and the series in general. Im usually a cheap-skate and wont spend much money, if ANY on games, but we didnt even hesitate to purchase this game. The combat is amazing, and the story itself is phenomenal. We loved this game so much that we even purchased the survival mode expansion. We love this game so much, and we cant wait for the third game to come out.

The Banner Saga 2 is the best kind of sequel. Its the kind that takes all of the best parts of the first game and refines them to make it better. It adds new character and gameplay that keep the game fresh and fun. We were originally disappointed that we missed the Picking up BS2 when it was on sale for 4.99. But even though we paid full price for the game ($9.99) it is still worth every penny. If you have played this game on a different platform Im sure its a Great experience. But if you want the best gameplay experience IOS is the way to go. We cannot wait to see how Stoic wraps up this epic saga.

Superbly crafted. With lots of interesting characters and backstories, and a very cool and beautifully made world. Even the tactical tile based battling, which we’re not usually a fan of, is so much better than any other of its kind we’ve tried and Im thoroughly enjoying it along with all other aspects of the game. Love the difficulty too and Im only playing on normal so far. This game has everything you could want. Easily the best mobile game we’ve ever played.

The art style and detail, the animation (wish there was more but we’ll take what we can get), the music, the choices, the story, and battle mechanics are just breathtaking/unbelievable/awesome we cannot describe the awe we felt for the waterfall scene, to name one. It’s worth it, every penny. We played it like 10 times as Rook and then we’re doing Alette now. The reason we didn’t give this game 5 stars is because we DO NOT LIKE the food/morale system. Just because a day passed and there’s less food doesn’t mean that they should be dropping in morale! If there’s no food or an event we get it but just the fact that a day passed? Anyway other that everything else is awesome. Game frequently crashes but whatever just a minor thing that will get fixed hopefully. GG.

Its a fantastic game and we’ve loved it on mobile before, thats why Im still giving it five stars. However it will not open on iOS 16. It crashes on start every time. For that reason we cant recommend buying on iOS until resolved.
