Mercenaries Saga 2 - Review

JuMeSynJuMeSyn Code: KirinAdministrators
Rooting around in the recesses of the 3DS's downloadable library is not for the faint of heart, but occasionally something worthwhile is hidden there. This little tactical item is rather entertaining to find.
Starring a guy named Claude.
It's not what he's eating, but what's eating him that makes it ... sort of interesting.

    Nice to find a review of that game here. It needs all the attention it can get. Sure it is far from perfect, but I really liked the presentation, even if it is somewhat bare at points.

    Also nice to have it now on iTunes with much easier access. I first bought MS2 on 3DS...for some lame reason it wasn't in the German e-shop only the UK one.....the hoops I jumped trough to get that gem onto my device....

    For the price point sure one of the better TRPG/SRPG choices out there, at least in my book.

    Any chance for a MS3 review as well? ;-P

    Quick review. MS2 has a better localization and story than MS3, though they are pretty similar in all other aspects. Both fun. I want more.

    - Don't come for the narrative
    - Or the presentation

    So true, but despite that, the game has a charm I can't really decide where it comes from, and MS3 is even stronger in that regard, despite having a crummier localization.

    There will be a review for 3 as well, but I have to finish it first. The localization is indeed worse in this one though, at times looking like someone just did auto-translate without checking afterward. That bug where impassable tiles can't be fired over seems to be gone though!

    Thank you for your detailed review.
    I'd like to play it but lack the hardware.
