Shining Force: Resurrection of the Dark Dragon (Nintendo Game Boy Advance, 2004) - European Version
About this product
|The third title from Sega's "Shining" series to come to the Game Boy Advance, this tactical role-playing adventure is based directly on the Genesis game, Shining Force. While true to the classic storyline and style, play balancing and graphical updates enhance this portable version of the game.|
Shining Force has you traveling to different towns to gather information, purchase, sell, or repair items, or meet new adventurers to add to your party (a maximum of 12 can fight at once). The heart of Shining Force is the battle system, which plays out in a turn-based format. Before fighting, you'll first see a flashing grid of squares illustrating your character's attack range. Highlight the enemy you wish to fight and you'll be taken to the battle screen.
Your character will appear in the right foreground while the enemy appears in the background on the left, and you'll be able to see how much damage is inflicted with each blow. Use each character's strengths in combat and you just might make it through unscathed! You'll also gain experience points and can take the weapon(s) from defeated enemies to disperse among your party. Fourteen different character classes range from traditional knights, mages, and archers, to the more exotic werewolves, dragons, and samurai.

Just like on Sega Genesis
A near perfect port of the old game, some nice modern additions to make it pleasing to the new audience. Worth the funds? Yes. If you enjoy the SF series, do check out the Sega CD version and the Sega Saturn version too.

I had heard good things about this SF1 remake and it (so far) has lived up. The characters have been re-drawn and look great, they have revamped a few things, such as EXP points carry over level to level ( like SF2, for those familiar with the series,) the game also tracks you HP,MP, ATK etc... progress and, it tracks your kills, deaths, and overall attacks. I recommend this game to any SF fan, or anyone looking for a great, classic turn-based RPG.

The only game made for the GBA and works great.
I had to buy the game for the graphics and colors, including 3 new characters and new cards only for GBA.

Shining Force Resurrection of the Dark Dragon Review.
I loved everything about this game. It's basically Shining Force 2 made over with new features. It is also the best game in the series that I have played so far. Although I haven't played the PS2 versions. Great game & well worth buying.
