    The SaGa series is one of Square Enix's most beloved. The first three titles were originally branded overseas under the "FINAL FANTASY LEGEND" moniker , and garnered critical acclaim for their complex yet compelling combat system.

    Romancing SaGa 2 takes the varied gameplay of other entries in the series and combines it with an open-ended free-form scenario system whose story is as vast as the world in which it plays out. The player takes the role of a succession of emperors, painting the history of the world with each and every action.

    Familiar series hallmarks such as formations and glimmers make a return in this unique title.

    Story

    It all begins with the song of a lone bard in a bustling pub.

    Great nations such as the Varennes Empire, which had once ensured peace throughout the world, stagnated and atrophied over the course of centuries, and sinister forces started emerging in outlying areas.

    Ere long, peace spiraled into war and the common folk spoke in hushed words of the Seven Heroeshistorical figures who saved the world once and who, it was hoped, would do so again.

    Romancing SaGa 2 is equal parts fascinating and frustrating. I've barely scratched the surface with some of the novel features this game offers you, so if you're thinking of playing it for the first time, I really encourage you to do so as there's a lot to love about this SNES remaster. Yet I also want this review to act as a warning on the difficult journey ahead, and while I've enjoyed my time with it for the most part, the obtuse nature and tough gameplay weren't always for me. If you love this series, you know what to expect and you'll enjoy every second. If this is your first SaGa, please don't go in blind: I didn't, and I'm glad I took the time to do some research and go through the game prepared.

    Romancing SaGa 2 presents many unique systems to unpack since the game is told over multiple generations of the kingdom of Varennes.
