Ratings and Reviews
YES! One of my favorite Sega games!
This is my favorite game on Sega Genesis! I still have the original cartridge, and it still works, but I haven't played it in a while. So when I'm not playing this on my real Sega, I can go in my phone and play it! I never got to turn into the super hero either, but maybe I can try to this time lol
I wrote a scathing review about the controls but they have since fixed them. Size and position is customizable. They’ve also added a save and even a rewind button! This is how you do it Sega, now please improve the Shining Force controls as well.
