Shining Force Refrain  

 

How does Sega stay in business? They make bad decision after bad decision. They continue to trample the legacy of the Shining series with horrible games like Shining Force Refrain. This is an action adventure role playing game like the Tales games. Shining Force Refrain also has dating that encourages sexual deviancy.

The issues families will have with Shining Force Refrain are violence, bad language, nudity, lack of attire, enticement to lust, magic, and more. The main character has the soul of a long dead dragon within him. He can transform in battle and fight with you. We see the enemies in the field, go to them and it triggers a battle circle where we fight.

The extremely long cut scenes can be skipped in Shining Force Refrain. Shining Force Refrain can be played in the original mode or the refrain mode. This game was originally on the PS3 and it shows. The American voice actors are average at best. The lack of emotion from them almost put me to sleep. Battles in Shining Force Refrain get really boring too.

Shining Force Refrain looks like a PS3 game. We have two major attacks and magic. The shield break attack can be very handy to getting an enemy defenseless. The story in Shining Force Refrain is standard normal Japanese role playing cliches that have been used so many times that it shocks me if anyone buys this game ever.

Characters can swap costumes and dress differently. Why are bikinis needed for the female characters? That does not scream battle against monsters to me. The areas are a bit small in my opinion. Shining Force Refrain starts with a tutorial and that comes up every time we come across something new.

Shining Force Refrain was not translated when it was on the PS3. We did not miss anything though. After playing it on the PS4 I can say that with complete and total confidence. Don’t buy this game.
