Storyline

According to legend, the Dark Dragon will return to the world of Rune 1,000 years after being banished to an alternate dimension. He will defy the powers of the Light and lead the powers of Darkness into a bitter war for complete control of each kingdom! Of course, this prophecy was long ago and many have forgotten it. Had it not been recorded in the Great Book of Ancient Lore, housed within the royal library of Guardiana, it would have probably been lost in the passage of time. Now the once peaceful kingdom of Runefaust has been assaulting the surrounding kingdoms of Rune! Word has it that King Ramladu is being influenced by a dark presence: the great wizard Darksol.

This was my Final Fantasy before I knew of it.
27 June 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I loved both the first game and the sequel. In the mid-90s, I was playing Sega Genesis and logging 60-80 hour playthroughs of Shining Force II.

The story follows Bowie, a youngling, who is charged with fighting the monster that is in the tower of the castle, and then when the King falls ill, it is Bowie who goes off on adventures as the savior of the town.

You gain characters to add to your team, and in the battles it's a turn- based strategy game. You move players like chess (depending on their movement attribute) and then attack or heal others. It's in-depth and immensely fun and submersive. It's great to experiment on several playthroughs to check out other characters since you're limited to a specific number of players on the battlefield.

It combines adventure, RPG and TB-Strategy elements into one game that makes for a story as long as Final Fantasy. To this day, I still play it and now for greater ease of access the game is available on Steam for $4 or less (which is wonderful since the game is $90 in cartridge form). In either case, the game is well worth the money since it's one of the best games ever created.
