    Shining Force is only worth buying for those who like their RPG meals to be served in small helpings and without any fat. Those who are growing tired of the endless pages of stats and infinite battles that are currently in vogue will find a lot to enjoy here.
  2. If you're frustrated by "FFTA," this is strategy with training wheels. [July 2004, p.92]
  3. Hardcore S-RPG fans looking for their next fix will enjoy this title.
  4. The fact that the storyline really fails to draw you in at all will doubtless be the main barrier that falls across the path of the casual player.
  5. Serves a good game to learn the various aspects of turn-based strategy - but little else.

    Beautiful remake. Probably the best out there, in terms of remakes.
