Romancing SaGa 2
Top Critic Average
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.

Far less linear than most of the JRPG at the time, Romancing SaGa 3 might be confusing at first but it's for the benefit of a large leeway for the player. Already pretty in 1995, the graphics of the game are polished in this remaster. It remains feeble though, as it doesn't provide any intersting new features.

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 can be a really fun 16-Bit-RPG - at least if you already played previous similar titles from that period. The typical SNES-charm, with regards to gameplay as well as technically, will fascinate fans while beginners will have a tough start to get into the game.

The downsides aren't enough to outright ruin the experience, and instead make this a bad port of a wonderful adventure.
Romancing SaGa 2 is a remarkable experience that, even after such a long time, still has creative ideas that make the experience feel all the more meaningful. It still shows its age in places, not least for the fact that many of the gameplay mechanics that whir beneath its pixel art exterior are never explained to the player. But, those looking for a classic packed with challenge will find much to enjoy.
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.
A welcome rerelease for this 1993 relic, Romancing SaGa 2 is endearing, interesting and difficult for better or worse.
All in all, Romancing SaGa 2 is a decent RPG with some very interesting mechanics that were revolutionary for its time.
