Good potential, but needs polish

Reviewed By: Old_gamer on 30 Nov 2021

Gotta appreciate Dark Claw’s work on many Shining Force 2 mods. After playing, I’ll relay the pros and cons.


Battles are more challenging. Certain allies and enemies have a chance of landing a status effect forcing better strategy. More equipment to better your attack and defense are optional. This forces better item management. The re-color of some characters is fresh.


There are some noticeable glitches. Janet’s animation is glitch central. The dialog is still vanilla Shining Force 2 with not many changes. (I blame this on playing return to grans mod), At one point Janet is called a rat - dialog needed change by switching characters here.

[Further Playthrough Edit] Things become rather unbalanced unfortunately. After arriving at New Granseal, the battles become more difficult. When you first meet the Dark Dwarf, it has ridiculous attack power and tends to get double attacks and the battle formation almost guarantees Chester is executed quickly. Enemies gain much more health and enough defense to withstand attacks. Magic damage does not help either. By the time you get near Mt volcano, the first enemy will require all of your team to beat with far too much health and excellent defense even with the new equipment that helps your attack power isn’t enough.

My suggestion is to nerf this or give magic a boost like in the Shining Force 2 mod Requiem.

There are some great changes, but game play becomes unbalanced.
