7th Saga+

Hack of The 7th Saga

Description:

The 7th Saga is an RPG that is infamous for its high difficulty and tedious grinding. Although the battle system is actually well designed, much of the math that governs it is senseless and discredits an otherwise exceptional game. This Patch Attempts to make the game challenging, but also require much less grinding than before. The 7 characters you can choose to play have been made more unique and more effective. All monsters have received changes to their stats: they generally are more difficult, but they give a lot more experience than they did before. In the original game the 3 magic elements of fire, ice, and lightning weren’t very important because almost all enemies had the same resistances to all 3 elements. In this patch, a lot more monsters have unique elements that they are weak and resistant to.

A better 7th Saga

Reviewed By: fa11enstar on 28 Jul 2010

I’ve played 7th Saga dozens of times and two things always bothered me. For one, Wilme, Lux and Olvan were reduced to just using the defend (or power) and attack strategy. For another, Esuna, and to a lesser extent Valsu, were so weak and magic did about the same damage to every monster so the only reason to take a magic user was to have someone who could buff your fighter.

In 7th Saga+ even fighters gain a high magic stat at level up so using magic is now an option. Different magic does different amounts of damage and monsters having different weaknesses and resistances make magic users much more useful. Also, hpcatcher and mpcatcher can drain twice as many points from monsters now and equipment is a bit stronger so the frail mages can survive battles later on.

All in all it makes 7th Saga worth playing through a few more times.
