    Not a review, per se (since he doesn't really do reviews, but, instead, does first impression videos, among other things), Totalbiscuit/The Cynical Brit - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o3zmGw8kq2o

    TB's, Angry Joe's, Yahtzee's etc. etc. reviews are far more valuable and trustworthy in many people's eyes, so him liking it is big news.

    Yup. I agree. Also, TB/Genna released their WTF Research stream footage on youtube (which I haven't been able to watch, yet, but, warning: NSFW language): https://youtu.be/B_sCPPaAEkE

    Has anyone else read this preview before the game?
    https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2013...e-banner-saga/

    What was wrong with these guys? Why on earth were they not able to follow the story? It seems pretty straightforward to me...

    I linked that preview a while ago in the "Master List of Banner Saga Previews" thread: https://stoicstudio.com/forum/showthr...-Saga-previews I don't know why the disliked the plot, but the final review from RockPaperShotgun was rather mixed as well.

    Here's another particularly well written review:

    A year and a half after the game was released, RPG Codex just posted a very detailed positive review of the Banner Saga:

    https://www.rpgcodex.net/content.php?id=9938

    ROG Codex is famous for having high standards about RPG game design (and being critical of famous games like Wasteland 2 and Pillars of Eternity) so it's nice to read their positive comments about the design of The Banner Saga. Looking back I agree with their complaints about the lack of variety in combat maps and in the enemies you fought (too many of the same dredge units), and about how starving your caravan seemed to have little consequence. Overall the combat mechanics were the strongest part and I'm looking forward to the other features being expanded upon in The Banner Saga 2.
