Critic Reviews for Romancing SaGa: Minstrel Song Remastered

Romancing SaGa -Minstrel Song- Remastered will let players spend dozens of hours in a compelling world, if they can deal with a handful of drawbacks.

Undoubtedly less cryptic than the original PS2 remake thanks to additional content to help streamline the experience, Romancing SaGa Minstrel Song Remastered is about as pure of a JRPG experience that one can expect to get from Kawazu and new players can finally see why folks have been singing its praises after all these years.

It's hard to really give a clear opinion on Romancing SaGa: Minstrel Song, except that it really is not to be put in everyone's hands. While some will see in this game a real call to adventure, others will be completely helpless in the face of the overflow of freedom that is offered to them. However, it is quite possible that the fighting will put everyone in agreement in frustration.

Romancing SaGa -Minstrel Song- Remastered is awesome in so many ways, but it’s annoying in a lot of ways too. With the steep learning curve at the beginning, I can’t imagine anyone enjoying it who’s not a JRPG veteran. But for those of us that love the genre, there are some cool experiments to shake things up, and a massive world to explore with multiple protagonists. It’s a ton of content; easily over 100 hours’ worth. Anyone curious about the roots of modern JRPGs like Octopath Traveler and Bravely Default should really give it a try.

Romancing SaGa – Minstrel Song – Remastered ambitions and achievements still feel fresh today. The open-world system is remarkably well-implemented and the multiple-protagonist approach feels modern even in a game that has been on the market for decades, but control issues, the vague nature of the game, and a slow progression system drag it down. Unfortunately, this is a cult classic JRPG that is less than the sum of its parts.

Romancing SaGa is not for everyone, but if it hooks you, it may hook you *hard*.

Romancing SaGa: Minstrel Song Remastered is a well-done and polished remaster that allows the player a lot of freedom. Fans of the series will be delighted at the extra characters and storylines. It still suffers from 2005 visuals and 2005 voice acting but it is nostalgic in a way.

Minstrel Song remains a great JRPG, but it is harder to justify sinking time into it given the choice overload players face in this era.
