  1. The game emphasizes role-playing over subscribing to the underlying story, and that is what makes Romancing SaGa such a terrific experience to be had.

    A unique and aesthetically appealing work of art.
  3. Some people are going to hate it on sight, but I believe that like SaGa Frontier before it, Romancing SaGa has a welcome place in the gaming library of anyone who appreciates a completely free-roaming experience and isn't above being patient with the quirks of gameplay it holds.
  4. Between the exploration and customization, players will have plenty to keep themselves busy for a very long time.

    Most certainly a pleasant console role-playing game of a faded breed. [Jan 2006, p.89]

It had beautifully composed music, the freedom to explore, and a wealth of characters that help develop the story. There may be some bumps and moments where you may want to walk away, but in the end, that very challenge is what makes rpgs into what they are. Full Review »

    If you liked SaGa Frontier, you will almost surely love Romancing SaGa. It gives you the same sort of freedom and customization. Fantastic.
