Romancing SaGa 2 is one of the many titles in the lauded SaGa roleplaying game series. In this popular entry, released in Japanese only in 1993 and boasting sales in excess of one million copies, the player's struggle spans multiple generations as he assumes the role of a series of rulers of the Varennes Empire in a valiant struggle against the Seven Heroes. A free scenario system—a hallmark of the SaGa series—enables the player to take command of a variety of protagonists along the line of imperial succession and experience the history of a nation as it grows and changes. This freedom of choice provides a compelling narrative that served as the cornerstone of the title's success on its initial release.

Underneath a relatively simplistic JRPG design lies a unique and smart game that was far ahead of its time when it first released in 1993. Romancing SaGa 2 eschews the typical story of a hero saving the world in order to tell the tale of an entire empire across several generations.

The Romancing SaGa 2's comeback is a nice thing for the rpgs lovers, the nostalgics and the newcomers. But the absence of new features, improved graphics, sounds or effects make it feels exactly like the mobile phone version.

Romancing SaGa 2 is a wonderful little game, hidden away from American audiences and after putting some time in the game, it is easy to see why it is beloved by its long time backers. It is as simple as things come, gameplay wise, but the story is complex beyond what could be expected for that gaming era, with twists and turns based on your choices and interactions. The remastering is not always perfect, but it mixes the old and new together well.

All in all, Romancing SaGa 2 is a decent RPG with some very interesting mechanics that were revolutionary for its time.
