    A polished quest, welcome with open arms to portables. The port features some new gameplay and tweaks, though its re-done artwork unapologetically disposes of Shining Force's signature style.

  1. A true classic. It may not have the admirable depth of "Final Fantasy Tactics Advance" or "Fire Emblem," but it has twice the character - and twice the fun.

    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.
  3. If you're frustrated by "FFTA," this is strategy with training wheels. [July 2004, p.92]
