After 3 start attempts and an imminent abort I was finally still captivated by the game. Wonderfully different playing style that scores above all with its graphics and atmosphere. All those who want to throw themselves into an entertaining refugee drama, can overlook minor weaknesses and are also willing to spend most of the time of the game reading, can confidently access and be surprised. By the way, The Banner Saga is regularly reduced in sale, one more reason to get involved.
