    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 arrivingIt 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. As there was no other option I rented SF2 and while walking home had a feeling of regret, thinking that I was going to hate it and had just wasted my money. After 10 minutes of playing I realised the game was on to something, after 20 minutes I became hooked, completely, I played Shining Force 2 for 2 days straight only to rent it again immediately after. As the game was long it took me along time to finish it, several rentals but in the end Shining Force had become one of my favourite RPGs. The gameplay simple and great, the graphics were fun with the awesome mixture of monsters from mythologies was fantastic, the story was involving and had something I found myself really caring about, there was something that seemed at stake with the story and I found myself deep in imagination while playing and filling in the gaps of the gameplay.. Although parts are dated today, Shining Force 2 remains a classic and highly enjoyable to gamers with patience and imagination. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for RPG lovers. Full Review »

    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 gameI 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. It also has a rat that turns into a freakin Ninja and a bird that turns into a phoenix, What more can you want? Full Review »

ItOne 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. Full Review »
