Top Customer Reviews

Shining Wisdom is a little collector's gem. From the Shining Franchise it is presented as a "zelda overhead" type of fighting instead of the traditional "animated-cut scene tactical fighting" that the series was familiar using. Because of this, fans were skeptical of this game and often called it the "Black Sheep" of the series, just as fans were skeptical of Zelda Wind-Waker. I think this game has been under-rated because of that, but its a fun game to play. You start out as Mars, the hero of the game who is completely mute (except for one scene where he is thinking out loud in the royal tomb...). Due to your father's greatness, you must become a Knight and so you leave your grandparents to fill your destiny's shoes. However, it's not as peaceful as Mars thought it was.

Princess of Odin, Satera has fallen under the evil spell of the dark elf. This beauty has been in a coma ever since and her father is hopeless of curing his daughter. It is up to Mars to save Satera, and ultimately, Odin from the destruction of the Dark Hand.

By today's standards the cut-scenes are laughable. You will see bulky, almost play-dough/chibi-like cutscenes of the characters in the very beginning of the game's play. Everything is presented in this almost chib-like fashion, as both monsters and npc's nearly look like midgets running around on-screen. The gameplay graphics itself aren't bad, and were pretty advance for the sega-saturn, especially when Mars uses a special attack with an item. You can stomp on the screen, causing the screen to shake, or call down lighting to zap everything in sight. You can also freeze water, freeze your enemies, and run fast. You can even fly, avoiding ground-like enemies. Mars can even turn into a monkey and climb up vines.

I'm not going to post some long review since everyone just looks on YouTube now haha. But I highly recommend this game if you can pick it up at a good price. It's one of those great saturn gems you just have to play. I've been collecting video games for some time now and still play my saturn every day. This game has great graphics for its time and has a wonderful soundtrack. The story is great and it's just an all around highly enjoyable game!

Writing this review because Amazon DEMANDS it. I received multiple emails asking me to review this product, even though it was simply bought as a Christmas gift. So, here you go.
