The graphics are nothing short of amazing, and still impress even by today's high standards. But it's the way the game plays that makes it another roaring success for Team Andromeda and Sega. The control method has been tweaked almost to perfection and the attacks and enemies all reek of the classic Panzer style that has impressed for so long on the Saturn.
As hard as I try to do this game justice, I feel that I cannot. Panzer Dragoon Saga is an absolute masterpiece that has clearly created the new high water mark for role playing games. It has replaced Ultima IV - Quest for the Avatar as my favorite RPG of all time - and it absolutely demolishes more recent titles like FFVII.

Panzer Dragoon Saga is an excellent game on any system, and a truly impressive one on the Saturn. If you have a Saturn and love RPG's, get this game. Period. If you don't, you're missing what this now-defunct system has to offer. Panzer Dragoon Saga is a perfect eulogy for the Saturn, a system that never got to show its true colors.

Sorry about this not being my usual humorous write-up, but frankly, Panzer Dragoon Saga deserves better. This game is so far out of the league of, say, Virtual Hydlide that they would never run into each other, even if Captain Skip McFurious came backwards in time with a rocket ship from the year 4,000 to launch them towards one another. Speaking of humorous reviews, if you want a funny one go back and read Virtual Hydlide. That one still makes me pee a little.

After playing this game I was in a near state of shock, and I had to wonder, given how amazing the Panzer Dragoon series translated into an role-playing game, what other game franchises would benefit? Mario RPG is another example of an outstanding RPG franchise, but even still Panzer Dragoon Saga stands tall above all competition, and I came to the conclusion that no game franchise could have been translated this well.

Die Präsentation dieses 4CD umfassenden RPG-Spektakels ist schlicht atemberaubend. Die Grafik sucht auf dem Saturn vergeblich Konkurrenz, die musikalischen Stücke sind bombastisch arrangiert und etliche FullMotionVideos begeistern den Spieler ununterbrochen und mit glasklarer Sprachausgabe. Wer einen Saturn sein Eigen nennt und bereit ist, für diesen Klassiker etwas mehr Geld auszugeben, wird garantiert nicht enttäuscht werden!

Avec la plus grande honnêteté, il faut reconnaître chez ce Panzer Dragoon RPG de sévères lacunes en termes de gameplay : si le système de combat, en tant que pionnier imparfait du mélange entre tour par tour et shoot'em up, reste excusable, l'absence de difficulté est en tout cas une cruelle déception. Mais, à l'image de ses prédécesseurs, Panzer Dragoon Saga c'est aussi une aventure unique dans la vie du joueur. Compagnon solitaire, plongé à son tour parmi les ruines de ce monde au bord du gouffre... Saga nous emporte à travers une histoire terriblement humaine et pourtant si loin de nous à la fois, loin des sentiers battus du jeu de rôle, à travers des chemins inexplorés du jeu vidéo. La série Panzer Dragoon, en se concluant, poursuit son évolution, et c'est avant tout cette audace si rare et si précieuse qu'il faut saluer.
Sega Collectors Guild (Jun 24, 2005)
The story is great; the gameplay is great (the battle system is superb); the graphics are great; and the soundtrack is great. All in all, PDS was a great end to the trilogy and saddening proof that the Saturn could have offered the gaming world so much more.
RPGFan (Jun 16, 1998)
This is an incredible game and one that every RPG fan should own. And hopefully it will hook many that never considered playing an RPG, and make them love the genre. RPG's are experiencing a renaissance right now, and Panzer Saga is a Michelangelo in the genre. Team Andromeda is a rising star in the industry and are easily the equal of the greatest developers in the industry. You can tell when a developer really cares about making a great game, and it's obvious everywhere you look in Panzer Saga that they love what they do.

This is what Sega gaming is all about. Few games are as enjoyable as this one. If you can find a copy you owe it to yourself to give it a try. You will not be disappointed....
GameSpot (May 20, 1998)
Panzer Dragoon Saga has been called Sega's answer to Final Fantasy VII, but that is an unfair comparison. Panzer Saga, in its own way, is so much more than Squares' ultimate RPG. It is a worthy successor to a series that with each installment has grown in stature and scope. It is flawlessly executed, limited only by the hardware (and barely that at all) and medium. Unlike other recent RPGs, such as Parasite Eve and Grandia, Panzer Dragoon Saga is truly a "cinematic RPG." Wide-screen in vision and Technicolor at heart, you can only imagine where the next one will take us. It's almost fitting, in the twilight of the Saturn's years, that it should end as it began. Panzer was always the brightest example of what the Saturn had to offer, and this third and final chapter reveals what Team Andromeda was up to all along - to fulfill the legacy of Panzer Dragoon and deliver Panzer Dragoon Saga, possibly the finest RPG of 1998.

Panzer Dragoon Saga turns out to be a surprisingly impressive RPG, and it ranks with Shining Force III as this reviewer's top US-released games of 1998. Its mix of impressive visuals, riveting gameplay, and an incredible soundtrack merit a wholehearted recommendation.

Overall, it’s hard to truly describe the experience that is PDS without spoiling the plot. And many of the game’s issues are due to the limited technology of 1998 that Team Andromeda had to work with, combined with the fact that we are utterly spoiled by plenty of cheap new releases of games that are easily played on HD televisions. But, if you choose to traverse a way to play this game in the best way possible, provided you don’t go overboard like Zach Hines for engadget did, you will not be disappointed. In the meantime, I’ll leave you to decide on how to play this masterpiece lost to the ages.
Edge (Mar 25, 1998)
Panzer Dragoon Saga’s gameplay is unquestionably engrossing, but superlatives can’t do justice to its extensive FMV cut scenes. The introductory sequences alone last over 20 minutes, and have a cinematic quality that shames the work of almost every other developer Edge cares to mention. Their addition makes Saga complete, an RPG of true creative integrity. It’s a tragedy that the Saturn’s standing will ensure Team Andromeda’s adventure, with a radically different approach to FFVII, will enjoy a fraction of its rival’s success.

Tras alrededor de 4 años de la salida de Saturn en el mundo, y tras la promesa de crear las tres obras maestras de rol en esta consola, solo dos de estas maravillas llegaron a España, Panzer Dragoon Saga y Shining Force III. Hoy paso a comentar el que fue la revolución en el mundo del RPG de consola.
RPG fans, Panzer Dragoon fans, Saturn owners, and any self respecting gamer owes it to themselves to experience this game. One of the few titles that exceeds all expectations and will forever be engraved in your mind, Panzer Dragoon Saga is a game, errr...experience, not to be missed!
I loved both the look and the play of this game. Panzer Dragoon Saga remains a brilliant game. It is an RPG for everyone. Role play fans will love it. If you've never played a role playing game, this is a perfect one to begin on. Perhaps the best console role playing game yet created.
Mega Fun (Apr, 1998)
Panzer Dragoon Saga ist in erster Linie eine Demonstration. Das Spiel zeigt, was in Segas Saturn eigentlich drin steckt. Grafisch ist es, schlichtweg gesagt, ein wahrer Genuß. Angefangen von feinster Polygon-Grafik über exzellente Transparenz-Effekte bis hin zu sauberen Animationen in den Zwischensequenzen. Auch die soundtechnischen Fähigkeiten müssen sich nicht verstecken. Komplett mit Sprachausgabe versehen. Es stört eigentlich nur, daß diese in japanisch ist. Nur die Musik wird auf die Dauer etwas quäksig. Insgesamt gesehen ist Panzer Dragoon Saga ein technischer Hochgenuß. Auch vom Spielerischen her kann sich das RPG sehen lassen, Eine absolut fesselnde Story - sie hat mindestens das Niveau der Vorgänger und innovative spielerische Elemente, wie eine einfache und an diverse Shooter erinnernde Bedienung, geben dem Spiel den Letzten Schliff. Alles in allem eine hervorragende Leistung!
Video Games (Apr, 1998)
Panzer Dragoon RPG ist das Non-Plus-Ultra für Rollenspieler mit Adventure-Ambitionen. Wer die Vorgänger kennt, wird sich nicht nur sofort heimisch fühlen, sondern auch wissen, was ihn grafisch erwartet. Ein riesiges Spielareal (auf vier CDs verteilt!), zahlreiche Echtzeit-Kämpfe, ein Haufen Gegenstände und reichlich skurrile Monster. Die gehaltvolle Story und modernste 3D-Technik gehören zu dem Besten, was derzeit in Neuzeit-Rollenspielen zu finden ist. (…) Die zahlreichen Superfeinde hauen selbst erfahrene Genreliebhaber locker vom Hocker, und die gut durchdachte Gameplay-Abwechslung mit Walk- und Flug-Missionen gibt dem Saturn-Highlight den letzten Schliff. Negativ anzusehen ist, daß alle Untertitel-Texte lediglich in Englisch sind und FMV-Dialoge im feinsten Japanisch aus den Lautsprechern plätschern. Wem diese unbedeutenden Kleinigkeiten nichts ausmachen, muß sich das Spiel unbedingt besorgen!
RPG Kingdom (Jun 01, 2006)
Avec toutes ces bonnes idées, ces bonnes intentions, Panzer Dragoon Saga ne pouvait être qu'un grand jeu. Et je peux affirmer sans me tromper qu'il l'est. De son système de combat à son scénario et son ambiance tout à fait singuliers, de ses personnages tortueux aux musiques envoûtantes, tout y est pour que le joueur passe de bons moments. Sauf peut-être lorsqu'il se rend compte que son aventure se termine crûment au bout d'une vingtaine d'heures... Mais les nombreux secrets sauront rassasier les plus gourmands. D'autant plus que ces heures deviennent de plus en plus précieuses au vu du prix qu'atteint ce jeu de nos jours.
