This game is the only reason I still own a Sega. This and the first one are games I will always play. They stay challenging and change everytime you play them.

The only thing better than being a teen in the early 90's with SEGA Genesis and your favorite game is being an adult 15-20 years later and finding your favorite game for download for a few buck on Amazon....right to your computer! Now there's no one to tell you to go to bed because it's late, or turn off the game because you've been playing it for too long (which to our parents in the 90's meant we had played it for over 30 minutes in one sitting). No longer will we have to wait all week for the weekend and a chance to use the TV to play our game. No more fighting with our brother or sister for a chance to use the TV.

I first played Shinning Force 2 when I somehow convinced my parents to let me have the "SEGA Channel" for a brief time. I loved every minutes that I had it (for the 3 months that I did). But it was short lived, since of course in the 90's, video games were in no way a priority and were still considered something that could rot your brain. I believe smoking cigarettes was even still considered less hazardous to your health back then. Video games were the new thing for the adults to hate, and the scapegoat for all they deemed wrong with our Nintendo Generation. Little did they know it would be the next big industry.

Shinning Force is a great RPG game, that really live up to the category. You start out as a boy who, along side his friends, helps the king of your land/city get his kidnapped daughter back from the evil one who took her. Your city is destroyed and you must leave with your whole town to a new land and start over. You go out into the land and gain friends who you take with you along the way. Each of these friends has some special ability to help you when you have to fight in large battles against all kinds of monsters.

This game is a tactical RPG that is rarely seen anymore these days. The closest thing today you can play to this would be something like Fire Emblem. I have played Shining Force my whole life up until it stopped being "Shining Force" with the last one being Shining Force 3 for the Sega Saturn. I love the Shining Force series for it's rich story and engrossing gameplay. Also, I own all the games that encompass that era I stated previously. If you enjoy the "Shining" games after Shining Force 3 for the Sega Saturn I.E Shining Force EXA, Shining Force NEO, Shining Blade, etc this is not the game for you.

Shining Force 1 and 2 is a tactical RPG where you control up to 11 characters including you, the main character, in battles against the forces the evil in a story that actually do connect to each other if you played every game in the series and get into it. If SEGA was to actually respect the North American public and release the series properly the proper order to play these games are Shining Force 1 (genesis), Shining Force Gaiden: Final Conflict (game gear japenese only), Shining Force 2 (genesis). If you were to play the games in that order you would get a very good story that would leave wanting for more.

P.S. if you look hard you could play the final conflict in english

This was purchased during the Xmas holidays by our grandson. I let him do the ordering so would guess he really liked it; however, what I found out later is that every few months you are billed again...I called explained...at that point those credits were used...I did cancel. Apparently the owner gets points toward purchase of ??? Bet our grandson knew this. Then I am sure he realized when there were no more points to use that it was canceled. Nothing was ever said. So ye grandparents that are not savvy to the tech...beware.

My goodness! I couldn't believe that Shining Force II is on Amazon! I had to buy this as soon as I found it! My brother's Sega Genesis console was given away so this was the only way I could finish the game. I still haven't finished the game but I will get to it one day. The game is exactly as I remembered! All the mithril is still hidden and accessible too! The Fairy Woods stage is just as hard as I remembered. It is exactly like the Sega Genesis version I had so I recommend this download!

Long game, but it does get pretty repetitive. Once you fight to gain access to an area you usually cant go fight there again to level up. It seems just some areas let you do that. Some of the characters are annoyingly weak or have such a limited range of motion that you end up using only 4-5 guys while you are fighting 20 bad guys. But, I still have had fun with it- I did use a cheat sheet the second time around to find the mithril stuff - I would have never found it without it.
