Summary: There’s not much one can say about Hero’s Saga: Laevatein Tactics . Thankfully there’s not much one can say that’s too negative about the game either. Gung Ho and Aksys have simply given us a largely forgettable tactical RPG whose biggest crime is being painfully generic. The game does give us a pretty interesting way of doing combat, but due to the lack of difficulty and the painfully dumb A.I.
Conclusion: Hero’s Saga Laevatein Tactics is about as basic as you’re doing to get when it comes to strategy role playing games on the Nintendo DS. The game follows the formula too well and at the same time it does a nice job putting together the best aspects from the games. I would give the game a shot. It is at least entertaining enough to play the whole way through, maybe even more if you don’t mind the Fire Emblem map style.
Summary: The DS has played host to many great SRPGs like Disgaea DS and Final Fantasy Tactics: A2 . Now, Aksys has added Hero’s Saga to the system’s roster of well-crafted entries in the genre. While I wouldn’t put it on top of that list, it does a lot of things right and largely provides a satisfying experience despite some shortcomings.
