  • Excerpt: is an interesting diversion, but far from a complete game. The gameplay is simplistic, the voice acting is horrendous, the game looks like an offering of 4th grade fanart, and the story is nothing but never-ending cliché.

Shining Force Neo – Review

GameCritics.com
13 August 2007
  • Excerpt: Mention Shining Force to gamers who came of age in the 16-bit era and you're likely to see them smile fondly as they recall memories of two of the best strategy RPGs ever to grace a home console. In an age where RPGs (Role-Playing Games) were a niche genre at best, the Strategy RPG was like the kid in your class who ate the paste—even the other nerds didn't want to hang out with him.

Shining Force Neo Review

GameSpot
27 August 2006
  • Excerpt: Oddly enough, it may be for the best if you're unfamiliar with Sega's classic Shining Force series of strategy role-playing games before delving into Shining Force Neo. That's because this latest game to represent the series that originated about 15 years ago plays nothing like the turn-based, strategic combat sequences that earned the series its recognition.
  • Pros: Long, challenging quest, Fast-moving action features tons of bad guys onscreen at once, Lots of loot and character customization options, It's easy to teleport back to town, heal, sell, save, and move on
  • Cons: Punishing, sometimes frustrating difficulty, Simplistic combat requires little of the strategy Shining Force is known for, Outrageously bad voice acting and dialogue (but it's kind of funny)

Shining Force Neo

Just RPG

  • Excerpt: Shining Force Neo has tons of monsters, a vast world on the edge of war, interesting and unique characters, fun and addicting gameplay, and a great soundtrack. In other words, it’s everything that a Shining game is expected to be. To say that Shining Tears was a disappointment would be quite an understatement.

  • Excerpt: When I hear the word “neo” put before or after something I at one time cared deeply about, I get concerned. I cannot think of a time that the use of “neo” hasn’t bastardized the source, much like fan fiction written by a 13 year old.

  • Excerpt: Bien connue des amateurs de Tactical / RPG puisqu'elle a sévi durant des années sur les consoles de jeux Sega, la série Shining Force et ses dérivés tentent un "revival" de fortune ces derniers temps avec quelques remakes dont l'excellent Shining Force 1 sur Game Boy Advance ou encore des jeux originaux comme Shining Tears, cet Action / RPG nécessitant l'utilisation des deux sticks analogiques.

  • Excerpt: Редкое издательство может похвастать таким количеством известных и уважаемых брендов, как Sega. И редкое издательство обращается со своей интеллектуальной собственностью столь же варварски. Потерпев немало поражений с игровыми консолями, Sega теперь в особо извращенной форме издевается над старыми хитами, меняя их до неузнаваемости. На этот раз под раздачу попал знаменитый сериал Shining Force , знакомый поклонникам RPG еще со времен Megadrive.
