    I never played the original, but this feels like it brings over the gameplay pretty unchanged. HOWEVER, since the original was the early 90s this means it's reproducing a time before tutorials--but also failing to give us anything equivalent to a physical manual which presumably would've given some more explanation. So though this game is worth checking out if you want a solid now-retro RPG experience, do yourself a favor and head to someplace like GameFAQs to read up on how things work.

    An odd choice for a first SaGa game on the Switch, but I get it. Seeing as RS2 never saw an official stateside release, that part made sense, but this is not really the best representation of the franchise as a whole. I do hope that it did well enough to bring other games in the series stateside, however.

    I've got maybe 10 hours in it so far. It's ok.... not the best port, but I guess it has stayed true to its origins. It's very grind-y with a lot of complex systems that aren't explained at all. The 2D sprites and art are great. It feels very old-school, which can be a plus if you enjoy this kind of game.
