SaGa Frontier is the wanderer in Square Soft's PlayStation line-up. Sometimes the story and gameplay take off and do their own thing, leaving you in a bewildered state. This really isn't bad, but the game never truly clarifies why this stuff happens. In all seven miniquests (which combine to form the entire game) the storyline is presented as more of an outline than descriptive formula. FF VII and Chrono Trigger have clarity. SaGa has confusion. On top of this, the graphics are a big disappointment. The lack of detail in the battle dioramas and the low frame count in character moves will make Square fans scream with rage. Although, if you can look past these problems, SaGa does present inventive gameplay and a lengthy quest.
