Romancing SaGa 2 is really intriguing new JRPG. The combat system has a great sense of depth thanks to its distinctive take on levelling, the inclusion of formations and how the player is held accountable for each party member. The kingdom management aspects also provide a greater sense of player agency and helps set it apart from conventional role-playing games. Due to this design, the story and character development – including the dialogue throughout – aren't quite as refined as other Square Enix titles. Regardless, the entire concept has aged surprisingly well – even by modern standards.
Being a port of an 25 year old title, Romancing SaGa 2 gives a promising look back at how RPGs have grown over the years. With the game's story spanning generations of characters and a fairly decent story, Romancing SaGa 2 is worth the price, but try not to get too attached to your main character because you will die, a lot.
A welcome rerelease for this 1993 relic, Romancing SaGa 2 is endearing, interesting and difficult for better or worse.
Romancing SaGa 2 actually was quite fun. At the very least, it was nice to see an older game re-emerge on a next generation console and still be more fun than a hindrance. It certainly contains some classic structure, some unique gameplay, tough-as-nails enemies and some linear restriction to keep it all grounded back in 1993.
Romancing Saga 2 is finally available in the English language. Game is demanding, often merciless and completely unbalanced. People who love old games will fall in love with it.

If you're willing to put up with a few gameplay flaws, uneven game balancing, and an unsightly user interface, this is one RPG that belongs in your collection.
Overall Romancing SaGa 2 was a great experience on the Switch. The console is a nice home for this retro gem and a lot of people are going to enjoy playing it for the first time. I highly recommend checking it out if you're a fan of this genre.
Romancing SaGa 2 makes its debut in EU after the '93 release with new HD graphics, but the port is the same we saw on mobile devices.

Romancing SaGa 2 is an alluring blend of esoteric and impenetrable that is as vexing as it is fascinating.
