The Banner Saga 3, the final chapter in Stoic’s norse epic, is finally here. And that can mean nothing more than that it’s time for The Banner Saga 3 reviews. In our own preview of the game, I found its sense of climactic despair one of its strongest features, saying that:
“The sense of desperation and hardship that the two narratives put forward, albeit in very different ways, are what the Banner Saga has always been about. As the series comes to a dramatic head, it’s impressive to see that despite the fantastical threat looming on the horizon, the difficulty in scraping out a living that defines this world is still woven seamlessly into the game.”
To help you make your own mind up however, we’ve collected together a round-up of The Banner Saga 3 review scores from around the web. Overall, Stoic seems to have outdone themselves with their final chapter – The Banner Saga 3’s Opencritic andMetacritic scores are both 86 at the time of writing.
