  • Summary: In ages long , the Ancients defeated the evil ruler of the dark forces known as Dark Dragon and cast him into another dimension, though he vowed to return in 1,000 years. As time passed, all memory of Dark Dragon was buried, and the land of Rune enjoyed 10 centuries of peace. Yet, as promised, the dark ruler returned, along with hordes of evil creatures that ravaged the land. As chaos erupted, several strongholds of Good still held out, awaiting a hero who could wield the Powers of Light. Expand

    INCREDIBLE!!!!!! This is by far the best game on the genesis to me and is also one of the most underrated games on the whole console. Incredible graphics, fantastic music, great gameplay, everything in this game is flawless Collapse

    I agree with Skeletonking123 this is a bit of a forgotten classic so it's great that Sega have given a new generation the chance to experience one of the best old school RPGs ever. Excellent graphics and plot for its time but what really sets Shining Force apart from any other RPG of its time is the heart thumpingly strategic battles. Best described as a cross between chess and Command and Conquer the battles are beautifully balanced to test your brain and your nerve without getting too bogged down in stats and statistics. A must buy for RPG and strategy fans and even if you're not it's worth a look as it's a bit different. Expand
