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 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.

I was having a brilliant time with Romancing SaGa 2 before the glaring issues of the battle system came to light. Its non-linearity was ground breaking at the time and as a result, it certainly stands up even today. Even the soundtrack was hugely enjoyable. But those battle mechanics have ruined this game for me.

Romancing Saga 2 is a game very much trapped in the early 90s, while it’s great to see a title translated into English after all this time, it’s a shame that it’s one that offers very little fun or entertainment.

Every aspect of this game blends into one another quite nicely, creating an experience that any fan of the classic era is sure to appreciate.

This review is of the PlayStation 4 version of Romancing SaGa 2, and this is something of a negative in the grand scheme. This new remaster is hitting almost every possible platform and this may not be the best option. While the upgraded graphics look a great deal better, they really don't require an HD TV and it feels like this would fit better on Nintendo Switch or Vita. Despite that, there is a great and original experience here, one that hardcore old school RPG fans may have completely missed out on. It may not be for everyone but this is a perfect opportunity to try a classic and unique Japanese experience.

The downsides aren't enough to outright ruin the experience, and instead make this a bad port of a wonderful adventure.

Despite a few problems, Romancing SaGa 2 is a worthy experience, being a very different game from what we are used to see in the genre. It's a good option for fans of the genre that want something distinct from the tired cliches that we see around.

Romancing SaGa 2 has a certain old school charm that invites any old school RPG fan to give it a shot. I don't think it's as polished as Square Enix's other titles that came out during this '90s era, but it's something worth investing in if you want a different take on the standard RPG formula. It's not for everybody, but Romancing SaGa has enough good qualities to give it a go if you've never played it before.
