Critic Reviews for The Banner Saga 2

Gorgeous and mournful, The Banner Saga 2 is enriched by a story that meaningfully remembers the choices we've made.

A handsome and brutal strategy sequel that benefits from a range of intelligent improvements

8.9 / 10.0

The Banner Saga 2 doesn't change much of the experience that made the original such a well-loved surprise two years ago, and that's a good thing. The improvements may be small, but they're also substantial: the new combat units, the introduction of a second caravan story to follow, and the obstacles in the battlefield add up nicely. While beautifully written and populated with memorable characters and twists, the story does slightly suffer from a case of the "middle episodes" that may leave you eager for more. On the bright side, we know that more is on the way in a third and final installment.

More a new episode than a full-blown sequel, but the clever blend of strategic, tactical, and moral decision-making is as compelling as ever.

A solid follow-up, but it gets bogged down in plodding encounters in battle and on the overworld
