Critic Reviews for Romancing SaGa 2

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.

In many ways Romancing SaGa 3 shows its age, but it remains one of the most fascinating JRPGs of the 1990s. This new edition allows us to rediscover it in the best way.

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.

So if you are looking for a challenging JRPG, with plenty of replay value and an overall fantastic story, picking up this epic game you probably missed is a wise investment. Just be prepared for a death count to rival your Dark Souls score.

In its systems and its storytelling, Romancing SaGa 2 is still a unique RPG -- one that genre enthusiasts may want to experience for its unorthodox methods alone. For all of its strange intricacies, though, this is a flawed fantasy adventure, hindered by potentially significant balancing issues and a horrible looking user interface. As a curiosity, Romancing SaGa 2 is worth looking into, but a lot more could have been done to bring the overall package up to speed.

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

… the game does an excellent job in making an old game look good.
