With any luck the others should still be released at some point :thumbsup:


Sigh. Shining doesn't seem to get much love anymore.


It really sucks that this is the case. Especially with so many SRPG fans out there. As every other SRPG I've touched does not come close to SF3. Especially the super praised ones like FFT. More folks need to know where it's really at.

Tactics isn't bad, but my top three SRPGs are by far Vanguard Bandits, Vandal Hearts, and Shining Force 3. I'm sure Tactics would probably be somewhere in my Top 10, but sometimes a large chunk of the game feels more like a chore than an enjoyable experience unless in just the right mood.

*Edit: Well, maybe I shouldn't say "by far" because of Project X Zone coming in at a close 4th, but still.

And we can't talk about SRPGs without mentioning Der langrisser!

Did someone played to this game? This series is even older than Fire Emblem!

I played the translated rom of an SNES one once, but didn't get to beating it.

Langrisser is known for its huge difficulty. Some battles are impossible to win the first time because you do not have a clue what units use (like lizards or undead... What?!). And some annoying overpowered bosses.

Reminds me of Warsong for the Genesis when you lose your one party member who seemed to be the only one capable of dealing damage at all, and didn't die in one or two hits. Which also played a lot like Langrisser.

Warsong is Langrisser. They just changed the name for the port.
