The Banner Saga 2, however, isn’t designed for newcomers. It’s recommended to start from the first game before jumping into the sequel. While it can certainly be enjoyed without playing the original, players will be missing out on key character and plot developments. If you’re looking for a deep tactical RPG with a fantastic story on Switch, you can’t do much better than The Banner Saga 2.
The Banner Saga 2 expands on the series' existing foundations with more of the same. There’s no drastic overhaul to the text-based elements or battle segments, and similar systems are in place when it comes to managing your caravan party, fighting enemies, and talking your way out of a tight spot. If you’ve played the original, you’ll know exactly what to expect.
The Banner Saga 2 continues to deliver a refreshingly personal experience, and, while some of the unpredictable events that transpire will undoubtedly astound, it is the rippling consequences of your own actions that keep you transfixed to the point that you will fret over every decision that you are forced to make. It has been a long time since a game has so readily impressed me across the board, and, with that, I now wait to see how the Saga comes to a close.
