From the review, "The Banner Saga is deliberate. Every action you take, be it on the field of battle or while escorting your caravan, matters. Will it lead to earthshattering decisions? Probably not. It’s far more likely to determine the fate of a character. While some may cry for more to actually happen, I think the game is perfect as it is. As you play, you’re drawn into the characters’ struggle. If it feels like a trudging, uphill climb, that’s because it’s supposed to."
