  • Excerpt: Ever had a ‘new best mate” I think everyone gets one at some time or another. A change of surroundings, a new job, or a trip to the local genito-urinary clinic can all spark such associations. Yet, while the preamble to this phenomenon can vary wildly, the course of these friendships normally takes a weirdly familiar route. Shining Soul has been my ‘new best mate’ for the past week, although the cracks are starting to show.

Shining Soul

  • Excerpt: If there is anything in existence that can be equated with goodness, it's shiny things. Gold, jewels, high-gloss pretzels, greasy bacon, and freshly laid down linoleum, they're all wondrous things...unless you're not into riches, cholesterol, or high viscosity flooring. When it comes to gaming there is plenty of shininess that comes off in a good way, or in this case a Shining way with the Shining Force series of strategy RPGs, traditional RPGs like Holy Ark and Shining...

  • Excerpt: It's portable. It's colorful. It's Diablo ! Well, no. It's Shining Soul , an action-rpg by Sega, but this game just begs to be called " Diablo -To-Go". Still, despite the remarkable similarities, this game manages to bring something new to the portable world.

  • Excerpt: Some of my fondest Sega memories involve the Shining series of games, particularly Shining Force. The original Shining Force has the distinction of being the very first strategy RPG I'd ever played-and the one that got me hooked on the subgenre. Over the years, I've spent time with almost all of the titles released bearing the Shining moniker-Shining Force, Shining Wisdom, Shining the Holy Ark, etc. To say that I've enjoyed the series is an understatement.

Shining Soul Review

GameSpot
29 September 2003
  • Excerpt: Sega's long-running Shining series began in early 1991 with the release of a first-person dungeon crawler for the Sega Genesis called Shining in the Darkness. The following year brought Shining Force, a strategy RPG that featured turn-based gameplay, an engaging story, and multiple characters to recruit into your army. It went on to spawn sequels for both the Genesis and Saturn, and those games are collectively the most popular and best known in the franchise.

  • Cons: Demasiado repetitivo. Argumento prácticamente inexistente.
