Shining Force review

Reviewed June 08, 2006

Rob Hamilton says: "During the game’s final battles, I didn’t have the courage to send Max into the heart of conflict. Why? Because if he gets defeated, the game ends and I found out the hard way that one unlucky confrontation can accomplish that in the blink of an eye."

Shining Force review

Reviewed December 05, 2007

sashanan says: "While not exactly as famous as Final Fantasy or even Sega's own Phantasy Star series, Shining Force has quite a name among Sega RPG fans. Many believe Shining Force to be the first game in the series, although that honour really goes to Shining in the Darkness, a dungeon crawler RPG very unlike the games that follow it. Shining Force, released in 1993, is more of a strategy game with RPG elements than the other way around, and sets the theme for many other titles in the Shining series. "

Shining Force review

Reviewed December 31, 1969

vince says: "Shining Force was one of the first games to take full advantage of the Tile system for strategy RPGs. Later seen in games such as Advance Wars(GBA) and Final Fantasy Tactics(Playstation), the tile system didn't change much, if at all, which says that they certainly did something right. "
