I don't know what to think of this game...

User Rating: 5 | Shining Force: Resurrection of the Dark Dragon GBA
Shining Force, one of the many tactical games for the Gameboy Advance. Can it hold up to the other games? Let's do a quick rundown:

Graphics: I actually thought they were pretty good. Not horrible but...not the best either. Some of the girls and guys were hard to tell apart though but that's not a big deal. It doesn't matter when playing the story that much.

Gameplay: Tactical style, meaning you take turns moving your people around, like chess. Each character has a certain job class (healer, mage) and you can use them to your advantage! Overall, it was okay, nothing really special.

Story: Now this is where things start to slip a bit. The story was very generic and bland with the usual cliches , plot twists , and stereotypical characters, which are too many to list. It all could have been a lot more.

Sound: Just do yourself a favor and turn it off. I counted maybe 3 different songs which are played over and over and over...

I can't say that I would recommend this to anyone but a serious tactical game lover who was able to overlook all of this.
