I've been waiting to play them until I learn Japanese but I broke down and played this one in. It's fantastic. It's my second ever after Sword of Hajya (LOVED), and I must say I am impressed. The different critical effects and animations really sold me on this one.
I don't like the huge grind to 99 from Hakkari's, but gotta do what you gotta do. Least it's not as bad as Birth By Sleep 99, I hope :( --- www.youtube.com/apocalypse612 PM me if you wanna talk about JRPGs or something :)
Yeah, getting to 99 is never needed in this game, and it's not even remotely fun. Maybe if there was some kind of optional, really hard boss, but there isn't. I also promote as soon as I'm able to, not any later, because I've heard the stat difference isn't noticeable unless you get to 99, which as previously stated is a huge pain. On a normal game I never get any higher than level 40 or so, so that's like 60 levels, maybe. And that's if I'm really slash happy. --- http://www.fictionpress.com/s/2880810/1/Soul_Seeker
Well I'm surprised people are still playing this game. This was (many years ago) my second Shining game too. After just coming off Shining Force III, needless to say I was a bit disappointed when it turned out to be a First Person dungeon crawler but the game really grows on you. --- What gets us into trouble is not what we don't know. It's what we know for sure that just ain't so.
