Great addition to the Shining series. Definitely worth checking out. Loved it as a kid and still do. If you get it used expect to replace the battery.

This game is a Dungeon Crawler that is rarely seen anymore these days. Shining in the Darkness is actually part of the "Shining Force" storyline. The main villian in this game Dark Sol, real name is Mephisto, is the child of Misheala and Darksol from Shining Force 1. You would find this out if you played Shining Force Gaiden: Final Conflict (gamegear) as he is born in that game. 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 in the Darkness is a dungeon-crawler where you control up to 3 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

I really love the shining force series and this is kind of a disappointment. Good in theory but not for me. Shipped fast and arrived in great condition though.

this game is great & the hard part of the game is getting the money, getting the items & going up the floors to get to the final boss thanks
