Alongside DRAGON QUEST and FINAL FANTASY, 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 for Game Boy, 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.
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 Heroes—historical figures who saved the world once and who, it was hoped, would do so again.

Ratings and Reviews
Fantastic game - aged very well
Saga was one of my favorite series as a kid so I may be a bit biased but I think this remake is really good.
What makes Saga great is the open world and the level of challenge. The battle system is addictive unique in a lot of ways.
Save often as you can occasionally get into situations where you can't get out of a dungeon or scenario and may not be capable of beating the boss. Always keep a few different saves going in case you box yourself in.
The game may seem rudimentary and from a story perspective it is fairly simple but the mechanics, challenge and replay value are all really good. Don't give up after an hour or two. Play for at least 4-5 hours and I think you will be a fan !
I will always have some bias towards Romancing Saga games because of the godly soundtrack by Kenji Ito.
Having played RS1 and RS3, the controls felt familiar; the enemies no longer rush directly towards and trap the player when they enter a map like in the first game (as often), yet the graphics, battle system, and story feel weak compared to RS3. The graphics look cleaner than the original version, and there are now animated boss sprites.
My biggest complaint would be how you control the movement of the main character and overall UI. It's unclear where you should tap when using an item/ sometimes I would press to the side and accidentally consume an item or make a wrong choice. The translations are also... kind of funky. "Seeling skill?" Sealing a skill? What? (Turns out I have to be careful not to tap the skill in the menu twice because that apparently DELETES it?)
Lastly, it's also irritating how you still cannot restore LP at the inn like in RS3, and you essentially have to kill off a character's LP to remove them from your party.
-- TL;DR -- Amazing music, interesting story (but a rather poor execution of it), ugly controls and UI, challenging gameplay.
Great Retro RPG with a lot of Challenges
Great, great game! This game is almost perfect with a few bugs especially in a few dungeons. Just walking around will cause the game to crash. To name a few: Gemstone Cave and Termite Den. Kindly make update fixes and continue to release great games such as this.
(Tips to maintaining LP: Always make use of all 4 saves and save/load if you have to suffer some casualties. Only time I let my LP go down if my characters learned a skill and wouldn't want to repeat the process. That's the challenge in this game: trying to survive the game until the next generation)
