    It's good, but...

    Okay, I'm not super familiar with the series or developer history but what I do know is this is a remaster of the games from 3DS on to the Switch in one package. I'm not sure if there's anything else to miss about the port than that. So, what's this about, it's a turn based strategy game with tons of gameplay to go through, a story mode, challenge maps and all the Mercenary Saga games rolled into one. It's quite the package. The story is a bit ...well, it's there. The characters are interesting at least, but if you're looking for a RPG strictly for the story this one is a bit lacking. There's one problem though, I dunno if I can recommend this because the game, while it's got a lot of stuff packed on the cartridge and it's a fine deal, really it is- the same package is 15 on the eshop. So, you're paying 25 more for the physical version. I love my boxed copies but it's hard to justify the added cost. If it was a limited run game release where you got a full color manual and it was a limited launch? Well, even still this would be 5 bucks more than one of those. Agh, I recommend the game, it's fun and will keep you entertained for a while but the big issue is the cost. But honestly I don't think it's not worth it, it just hurts to see that it's so much cheaper digitally.

    Like most small scale tactics games, this one is a lot like final fantasy tactics. The stories aren't as deep and are pretty standard fantasy fare, but the characters themselves are good. The leveling system leaves a bit to be desired as each character is locking into the kinda of classes they can be. This means you end up with your favorites who are smashing everything and then "the other ones" who you will get stuck with due to plot reasons and get rekt. It's kinda just how these games work out. It's a lot of fun though if you like tactical rpg's.

    Unexpected Tactical RPG

    Mercenaries Saga Chronicles is a tactical RPG. The game looks, feels and plays very similarly to Final Fantasy Tactics. Granted this title is not a knock off of the classic PS1 game, and has a wonderful identity of its own. It's worth your attention, and is a fine handheld RPG to take with you on the road as well.

    This is a collection that includes Mercenaries Saga: Will of the White Lions, Mercenaries Saga 2: Order of the Silver Eagle and Mercenaries Saga 3: Gray Wolves of War. If you enjoy Final Fantasy Tactics or Fire Emblem, these games are in the same genre. Not as good music or story, but still enjoyable all the same.

    If you are looking for something to fill the void of Final Fantasy Tactics, Fire Emblem or Tactics Ogre games then this might do the trick. It's a stripped down version of those but it's still very fun and you get 3 games in this one cartridge. For that alone, despite them not being super long, it's probably worth it.

    If you're a fan of games like Tactics Ogre, Disgaea, X-Com Enemy Unknown, Advanced Wars, and Final Fantasy Tactics, this game will be right down your alley. It includes the original 3 Mercenaries Saga games in a must have trilogy! You can easily give you hundreds of hours of gaming.

    I'm a fan of old school games and maybe my expectations were just bigger than they should have been in this case. Solid title and if you're a fan of the genre go for it. Most would likely not play this if another quality choice was present.

    A Collection of Good but Not Great Tactical Games!

    Graphics are ok but should have been updated a little bit and the AI could have been improved. The story and plot are ok but just a little to generic. Like a graphic chess game kinda boring after a while.

    This trilogy collection is a nice addition to the Switch game library, the games are reminiscent of the Final Fantasy Tactics games, so if you're into those, you might enjoy this collection as well.

    I have been waiting for this to come out because I wanted the physical copy and not the digital version because I love final fantasy tactics and this game reminds me of that game

    Plays very similar to Final Fantasy Tactics, so if you like those games this is a must have. Also a good game to scratch the Tactics RPG itch!
