| Shining Force is the sequel to Shining in the Darkness, but instead of dungeon crawling, you must amass an army of people to fight evil. This is the game that started me out on strategy/rpg, it's one of the best with a great storyline, good graphics, and lots of cool characters. The fighting occurs on a grid field, but it lots of fun and challenging. Don't fprget the music, which is great stuff. I give it a 9|
Shining Force 2 is the sequel to Shining Force. It improves upon it by making more of an rpg. You can walk around towns and find treasure and also you get to walk on the Overworld Map! More character, and you get to upgrade your characters class once they are at level 20! The music is once again outstanding and fits the game well. The story is cool too. With a cheat code, you can even fight using the enemies against the heroes. Lots of replay value, and once you get to the end, your in for a funny surprise :) I give it a 9.5
Shining Force was also made into 2 games on the game gear, these games were a lot of fun and were actually released on SegaCD as Shining Force CD. And Shining Force 3 was released on saturn, though us americans never got to see episodes 2 or 3 :( Oh, and Shining in the Darkness did get an official sequel on Saturn called Shining the Holy Ark which a great sequel, although it's a very tough rpg.
