This is NOT Unlimited Saga

  • Excerpt: The SaGa series is peculiar. Unlike other Square Enix franchises, there are two separate groups which view this offering: those who extoll the games, and those who believe only a masochist could be interested. This love-hate paradigm is exemplified in the series' popularity in Japan compared to its popularity in North America.

  • Excerpt: Released in Japan as Romancing SaGa: Minstrel Song, this PS2 title is a remake of the original Romancing SaGa released exclusively in Japan for Super Famicom over a decade ago.

The Armchair Empire

  • Conclusion: The fun in Romancing SaGa comes from the process of discovery. In most console RPGs, players have a good idea of what they’re getting themselves into when they step into a new dungeon, because a couple dozen NPCs have already told them. This isn’t always the case in this game. There were a number of times when I found myself wandering into a tomb, or some ruins and knowing there was something mysterious and special about the structure, and then felt compelled to explore...

  • Conclusion: Well, there you have it folks. Whether it surprises you or not, Square-Enix succeeded at delivering yet another solid SaGa entry that won’t appeal to everyone. The story could have used some work, and free-roaming isn’t the way to go with RPGs. But still, Romancing SaGa delivers a deep and rewarding battle system that is reason enough to warrant a purchase.
