    Shining Force is not perfect in technique, but certainly brings numerous enjoyable hours of pure fun.

    An excellent sequel to one of my all time series. I was skeptical about the whole real time aspect, but Sega pulled it off quite nicely. I highly recommend Neo for anyone who loved the first two, or those looking for a new Action-RPG.

    It's great fun, a fantastic example of substance and style, and provides depth at nearly every turn. What better way to combat the armies of darkness?
  2. In the end, Neo contains all of the Shining that gamers are looking for, but none of the Force.
  3. It's a long game whose simplistic but satisfying combat can be quite addictive, but mostly for meticulous players who don't get frustrated easily.
