Summary: I stumbled upon this game on accident at a rental store took it home and was hooked from the start, it was my first strategy Role Playing game I ever played. It has a really great and easy to follow story. The gameplay is excellent you can really take your time making Decisions. The graphics are ok. It reminds me of a chess game and they actually have a level where you are on a chess board.
Summary: One of my favorite games of all time and of that 16-bit era, Shining Force 2 improves in every way over the original, which I also love. It has beautiful graphics for the time and honestly they still hold up today. The battle system is fun and engaging, and there are plenty of secrets to keep you playing. I Highly recommend it highly if you like JRPGs, Strategy RPGs, or just good games in general.
Summary: My first real gaming console was the master system (before that I just had an old atari 7xxx), however that was short of rpg's. When I finally begged my mother to get a megadrive, I still kind of stuck to the "non rpgs". It took a while for me to finally get around to playing this game. And when I did, it took almost no time for me to suddenly realize that i had been missing a lot - by playing conventional platformers and action games.
Summary: It was 1995 during the school holidays, I was 14 and was given a few dollars to rent a game from the local video store, I found when arriving that I had previously rented or played most games available, all except a game on the mega drive named Shining Force. The graphics on the back seemed decent but I was sceptical as many Japanese RPGs I had played prior were hit and miss for me.
Summary: one of my first ventures into the stratagy RPG gaming and it hooked me . it has a good story and intresting charicters ( for its day atleast it was impressive) i like the slow paced turn based combat thats alot like chess . the game is about 25-30 hours and is a pretty good challange . why they dont make more games like this is beyond me because this is deffinitly my favorite genra of games.
