Apparnetly Shining Force: Resurrection of the Dark Dragon is to long to fit, but since there are not any other Shinning Force games for the GBA I didn't think there could be much confusion. smile

Dispite being out in Europe for a month I haven't seen many reviews.  However this one seems pretty good.  It is a heck of a lot better than the mostly useless review in EGM.   Their mini reviews told you practically nothing about the game, what changed, what stayed the same, etc.   However they all gave it high marks which is good.

I am just happy to have another Strategy RPG on the GBA.  I am also to see remakes of these classics.  The GBA is perfect for this kind of thing and I hope there are a ton more!

I've had it for a few weeks now and I'm happy with the port (Shining Force 1 & 2 were my favourite games of the 16-Bit era)

I haven't played far enough for the new "card" system to come into play yet, but it doesn't seem like it'll have a big effect on gameplay.

the graphics look good and the interface is largely unchanged. character sprites are a little more detailed and some of the combat animations seem to have been redrawn, as have some of the portraits that appear on the screen when party members and key NPCs speak. There is a 'run' function for use outside combat and each character now has 4 additional inventory slots.

I've noticed a few dialogue changes - I'm guessing what is in this version is closer to the Japanese original.

compared feature-for-feature with Fire Emblem or Final Fantasy Tactics Advance it may come up a little short, but anyone who enjoyed the original should have fun with this new version.
