General opinion I've gathered from the players in favour of this game is to expect a fairly decent and fun generic ARPG, but not to expect a decent Shining game at all.

It's pretty good until you compare it with other Shining games.

As for hints, I don't suggest you skip any of the dialog because you might learn something that will come in handy later.

Hey cullSoft ,Cheked a few youtube videos to see how the game was.
And have to agree on that The game battle sistem didnt seem shining force at all.
Seemed more like a ARPG online game. is it possible for more than 1 player then?

Nope. Shining Soul I and II and Shining Tears are multiplayer(1-2 players for Tears, and I think 1-4 players for Soul), but with Shining Force Neo Sega took the series back to its single player roots.

Although in SF2, you could technically do 2P.

Just picked up a copy of myself and it arrived this morning, seems like an all right action RPG. Story and dialog isn't great and the attempt to tie it in to SF is what I'm dreading. The voice acting is dreadful howeverbut I think the script is partly to blame.

Still I've played a lot worse, just wished there'd named it Shining Neo and for £9 I can't complain in good condition as well.

I'm going to keep an open mind, but I'm going to be rating this below all the Camelot games.
