Romancing SaGa 3 isn’t for newcomers to the RPG genre, but it’s an excellent and complex game that JRPG fanatics will certainly appreciate. It can be ridiculously vague at times, but the game’s non-linear structure and plethora of well-developed mechanics make it a truly unique and enjoyable game.

With all of these upgrades and extra content on top of an already rock-solid game, picking up Romancing SaGa 3 for many is a no brainer. Granted, the combat and leveling up might not be for everyone, but if you are a fan of Western and Japanese RPGs I highly recommend jumping into this classic that took way too long to make its way out west.

Between Romancing SaGa 3 and two more English SaGa games on the horizon, it's a good time to be a devotee of this oddball RPG series. Let me hear your rallying cry, SaGa fans: "There are dozens of us! Dozens!"

This is a faithful recreation of Romancing Saga 3 bringing back this classic JRPG to modern platforms. There are some additional features but the most appealing part of this port is that the game is now officially playable with English localization.

Romancing Saga 3 is an ambitious JRPG, with great story and fun gameplay systems that despite taking too long to come to the west and seeming a little outdated, should be played by fans of the genre.

On November 11, 1995, the Super Famicom system saw the release of an epic turn-based RPG. 24 years later, to the day, Romancing SaGa 3, makes its debut to the West for the first time. The remaster brings improved graphics as well as some other functions to the current generation of consoles. The JRPG brings a wonderful world back to life for all to enjoy.

A difficult game only suitable for veteran players. One of the most challenging JRPG come, finally, to Europe.

Romancing SaGa 3 is an interesting work of the last century. The gameplay offers freedom like no other game from 90s. The visual and sound style of the remastered gives the title a second life. However, the history is a disappointment that offers interesting concepts, but at the end of the day, it does not achieve something memorable.

Romancing SaGa 3 is a game that is easier to respect for some of its design choices that were better realized in some later games than simply for being fun.

Romancing SaGa 3 is a strange game. I like some of its oddities, but others not so much. The game is a bit of a mess. It is, however, a really pretty mess with a great soundtrack. There is a lot of good here, but I just wish it wasn't so bogged down with nonsense.

It’s both easy and difficult to recommend Romancing SaGa 3 as it’s a title that you’ll either love or hate with very little room for a middling response.
