    Not bad... pretty good. When I say "Highly Addictive," I mean it.

    This game really isn't amazing. Solid is the exact word to give it. While the gameplay is enormous and fully customizable, I gave up on it... AFTER OVER 100 HOURS!!! Good Lord, this game got addicting. I would stay up ... Read Full Review

    The little hack 'n slash that did.

    Most hack and slash's nowadays are complete replicas of the Diablo series; but with the huge success of Diablo II, its not surprising. Shining Soul II took a new approach, which actually turned out for the best. Gamep... Read Full Review

    Simply Perfect!

    Using a style of combat interface based on Diablo games, Shining Soul 2 promised and probably still promises (for GBA players luck) long time fun for it's players! The graphic part of the game is considerably good, altho... Read Full Review

    You want Hack and Slash!?!? Than that's basically all you'll get with Shining Soul 2.

    After the very disappointing SS1, I never wanted to experience anything "shining" again, but sadly after reading the review here on GameSpot I thought "hey, maybe I thought too soon..." well, did I? Nope. It's still just... Read Full Review

    Wow, great RPG, and a great way to kill spare time!
