    I just find it baffling you'd not focus on the ones that were the most known and well recieved.

    The Shining Force that people usually refer to was on the Genesis, as was Shining Force 2. There was also a SegaCD Shining Force, what was (I think) a re-release of the handheld Shining Force games, though I might be wrong about that. Shining Force 3 was on the Saturn, came in three parts, but only the first part was brought here.

    While I personally enjoyed Shining Force NEO and Shining Force EXA, I can understand why someone would not have. The Shining series, however, actually comprises a number of different RPG subtypes within itself : Shining in the Darkness and Shining the Holy Ark are step-based first person dungeon crawlers. Shining Force 1, 2, 3, CD are all top down SRPG’s. Shining Tears, Shining Force EXA/NEO, and the GBA Shining games are different types of ACtion RPG’s.
    Yeah, CD is a remake of the two Gaiden games for the Game Gear, plus an additional 2 books to finish out the story.

    Was Shining Force 2 really that good? Played it for a couple of minutes and it turned out to be... okay? It seems like a basic game as well, but that must not be a bad thing. Every generation got these games (Musashi 1+2, Azure Dreams, etc.) and I liked them too. The GBA games of Shining Force are also on my backlog list. Action RPGs are cool on the GBA, though.

    Shining force and II we're pretty much my childhood. A little bit of an exaggeration but are among my favorites all time. It took me so many playthroughs to find all the characters, and trying characters that I never tried. Putting some time grinding some shitty characters and finding out they were ****ing beasts. Trying to find musashi because I had seen my older brother playing with him and instead stumbling upon Hanzo. They aren't incredibly complex now, but back then there wasn't much out west like them.

    It's a lot better than the first Shining Force so there is that. At this point they are very dated but back then that series was near the top of SRPGs imo. Now there are more recent games that do the same thing but much better.

    I'm trying to even think of other SRPGs that were available around then. The only thing I can think of is Super Conflict on the SNES. Shining Force obliterates Super Conflict.

    Edit: There was Dark Wizard too. Which required a hardware addon and is still noticeably worse than Shining Force.

    Having not played the two Game Gear games, but having played Shining Force CD, I thought it was a remake of the two GG games, and *one* additional book to finish out the story, with basically all of the characters in it. At least, I do not remember any fourth “game” to go through.

    It has two additional "books". Book 4 is just a single battle though.

    Shining in the Darkness was a really fun game. Tho I don't think that's actually part of the series.
