    Collection of SaGa: The Final Fantasy Legend is the perfect collection of these classic Game Boy screens, looking and sounding even better than the originals. Just keep in mind that they are early style RPGs so they require a ton of grinding!

    Collection of SaGa Final Fantasy Legend is a great piece of retro RPG history made readily available for modern gamers. The added options add a layer of accessibility lacking in the series, but it still retains its minimalistic design and leaves progression in the player’s hands. Bottom line, this is an amazing collection for RPG fans, and you won’t be disappointed spending an afternoon pretending your switch is a Game Boy and going on an adventure.

    The bottom line with Collection of SaGa is that RPG aficionados, with or without prior experience, should add these classic titles to their Switch library. It's great to see the saga of SaGa find a home on Switch, even if a little mental assembly is required to enjoy them.

    The collection provides around forty hours of gameplay to complete and does a good job of scratching the nostalgia itch. This collection is a fine example of how games were enjoyable with limited technology and rather simple gameplay, but the limitations are even more apparent now and makes the player appreciate how far modern games have come with storytelling and clearly laying out objectives. But even with all the limitations of the time aside, which can sometimes make the games frustrating, this is a nice collection to take a trip down memory line or discover the origins of SaGa.

    Collection of SaGa Final Fantasy Legend contains three good games, but lacks any extras like manuals, save states, or cheats other than game speed to make it stand out. It’s certainly a better effort than any of Nintendo’s recent re-releases, but we can do much better to preserve the history of games.

    Collection of SaGa Final Fantasy Legend might be interesting if you are really into the history of the JRPG genre. However the three games are too clunky and obsolete to have fun with.

    Collection of SaGa Final Fantasy Legend has one great title from the Game Boy era and two other titles that can be appreciated for their place in gaming history but can be a slog to work through, even with a guide handy. People nostalgic for these games should be able to enjoy them on a modern system, but newcomers might be turned off by their antiquated designs.

    If you missed out on the Final Fantasy Legend series back in the day, there's absolutely no better way to experience them in 2020. ThisIf you missed out on the Final Fantasy Legend series back in the day, there's absolutely no better way to experience them in 2020. This collection could stand to be a bit less expensive in my opinion, but in truth, playing these games on your Switch is infinitely better than playing on the original Game Boy with physical carts. Highly recommend for fans of the series; not as much so for first-time Final Fantasy players as they're not nearly as accessible as later entries. Expand
