    In a generation of games where developers put more time into cutscenes, talking, and character development than into pure gameplay, this hack/slash RPG is a huge relief. There's a time and place for games that are more like movies, but Shining Soul 2 is a reminder as to what this hobby of videogames is all about.

    Slow-to-roll-out dialogue bogs down the game at the beginning, but the pace quickens when the fighting begins. [Mar 2004, p.120]

    With eight character classes the possibilities for multiplayer and replay are endless. [Summer 2004, p.41]
  4. It feels a little bit like "Zelda" and has the depth of "Diablo." Not bad. Not bad at all. [Feb 2004, p.114]

    Get some friends together, though, and you've got one seriously fun multiplayer RPG. [Jan 2004, p.164]

    Vastly improved graphics and animations make this practically a new game. [Jan 2003, p.93]

    Shining Soul II suffers from a very flawed combat system, leaving it open to RPG veterans only.
