Review: Mercenaries Saga Chronicles (Nintendo Switch) via Pure Nintendo

Mercenaries Chronicles Saga offers a decent amount of gameplay that averages about five dollars a game. Which really is not a terrible price. However, the lack of freshness does hold it back.

[Beyond PlayStation] Mercenaries Saga Chronicles Review via PS4Blog.net

If you're a fan of the SRPG genre, then I highly recommend that you get Mercenaries Saga Chronicles on Nintendo Switch. It has a ton of content at a very affordable $14.99, and completing all three games at least once will require dozens of hours of gaming at home or on the go. The games aren't perfect, and playing all three back to back to back might feel as if you're playing different (very long) chapters of the same game due to how they share the same overall look and gameplay mechanics, but for SRPG aficionados this won't be a deal-breaker.

Mercenaries Saga Chronicles Review via CGMagazine

Mercenaries Saga Chronicles is about as straightforward as a strategy RPG can be, its greatest asset being an impressive volume of content that eclipses its meager asking price.

Review: Mercenaries Saga Chronicles (Nintendo Switch) via Digitally Downloaded

There's so much raw content in this package that, as long as you're a fan of the standard tactics JRPG formula, you won't be able to help but get plenty of value out of this trilogy. And the standard tactics JRPG formula is so damn good that it's timeless. Making Mercenaries Saga itself functionally timeless.

Mercenaries Saga Chronicles offers three SRPGs for the Nintendo Switch, and while they're relatively standard games, there is still fun to be had.

There’s a physical version of this out for like $40, but I don’t think I’ll be able to justify it. The digital price is just so much better. I hope to pick this up sometime between now and Christmas, if I can find a gap for it.

I haven't played Final Fantasy Tactics, so I can't make a comparison. Previous comments seem to indicate that this game is similar in the same vain as Malt-o-meal's Tootie Fruities are similar to Kellogg's Froot Loops. The one thing I can say for fact that does annoy me is the static tactical map. Some times the terrain can get in the way of the pointer for the grid; it makes it hard to see. Maybe I just haven found a way to rotate the map. Anyway I think the game is alright. I don't feel as if I have wasted $15, but whay do I know?

Sorta like a budget Final Fantasy tactics so if you want FFT on the Switch, this may satisfy your desires for a while

The story in the first game is blah, maybe it picks up later on, I don't know, I've been skipping it since Chapter 3. The game play is quite a challenge though. Even with the strongest items you can't steamroll through the story and have to play cautiously. It definitely makes me want to pick up Disgaea for the Switch though, but I can't bring myself to buy it again.

I haven't played the second or third yet, but it's definitely worth the $15 price tag if you enjoy strategy/tactic games.

I’m on the tail end of the 1st game, and I gotta say, it’s surprised me. The story picks up and the gameplay only gets better the more class options and skills you get. I will say there’s some baffling writing and plot points in this game, but otherwise it’s been everything I was expecting from it and a little bit more.

I'm not very far in (DQ Builders taking more of my attention), but so far it is mostly what I expected: poor man's FF Tactics Advance, but presented in HD widescreen. No world map, at least not for the first game, but there is a menu section to go to optional and repeatable fights. Which is good, because at Normal difficulty it feels pretty easy to fall behind in money/experience without a bit of grind.

Haven't played these at all but really wanted a tactical game like this to play through. Decided that it might be a good idea to buy the whole trilogy at once while it had a preorder discount. Looking forward to it!

I'm with firestream, as I loved the two on 3DS. I don't know if I'll replay both of them right away, but I want to play the first one for sure.

I've played 2 of these on the 3DS. They are very similar to Final Fantasy Tactics, with a bit less length and depth. Having all 3 in a collection for Switch should be fantastic until Square gets some smarts and releases FFT for Switch :)
