I have to say that after spending a good 2-3 years of my life mingling in this community, this game really isn’t that bad. Lost Saga is a pretty unique game, with lots of options to make your fighting fresh. With the massive choice in characters that increase as you level up (which gives you good incentives) your gaming really doesn’t get boring all too fast. Stack that up with faction war battles done between guilds on two different teams and just normal battles with friends and you’ll end up pretty hooked.
The game already features more maps than a lot of other fighting games, and the unique battle style of the most common mode is a nice refresher too. In prisoner mode, instead of dying and re-spawning, you’re tied up after you’ve been stripped of your 4 main gears (and sources of skills.)
I love the controls for this game, a simple ‘A’ for jump, ‘S’ for guard, and ‘D’ for attack. The skills are based off of ‘AS’ ‘AD’ ‘ASD’ and ‘SD’. Arrow keys are the default movement controls for the game. Several players have been known to hook up controllers to play as well which can be seen as beneficial in combos and directional inputs.
Not only does Lost Saga feature characters like Robin Hood and Captain Hook from folk lore, but it’s also home to broader ideas like ‘mafia’ and ‘treasure hunter’, as well as premium characters (which are cash) like Sol Badguy from Guilty Gear, or Jin Kisaragi and Hazama from BlazBlue.
The only complaint I could possibly make about this game is its strange community; at least to me. It has its moments of immaturity and ridiculousness. But all in all if you just ignore it and move on (or if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em), then there’s really nothing left there to be said.
I hope you give Lost Saga a try and maybe you’ll like it too.
