Sorcery Saga is a solid roguelike with a big heart, lots of content and a hefty challenge, but its repetitive gameplay and occasionally hostile design choices makes it a niche pick.
The dungeon dives are dull, but Sorcery Saga at least has some flavour in the goofy items and ridiculous soundtrack. The light storyline and simple spelunking makes it a decent entry point for those curious about the genre who might be intimidated by other roguelikes. Sorcery Saga fails to innovate or challenge, but barring a few unfortunate jokes and costumes it’s at least a cute tribute to a more innocent time for Compile’s RPGs.
For an Idea Factory game, Sorcery Saga is pretty good. The dungeon crawling may be simple, but it is quite fun. Even so, the game does suffer from some minor annoyances and a subpar story
