Shining Force 2, Challenge Mode

Hack of Shining Force II

Description:

This hack makes the monsters much stronger, and improves the weaker force members to better balance the team. Many members have new spells and abilities. Most monsters have double HP, 10% more attack and 10% more defense. Boss monsters are much harder. A comprehensive list of changes is included in the readme file.

Version 1.01 (released 6/30/2008) further improves the Zeon battle. It is compatible with saves from previous versions, provided those saves weren’t made during the Zeon battle.

Breathes new life into an old classic

Reviewed By: stordarth on 27 Aug 2009

I’m a shining force veteran. I’ve been playing the games for about 12 years, and I love them. But in that time, the games show their age, and having gone through them again and again, the game becomes too easy, and the challenge wanes. This hack shakes things up, shatters previous expectations, and pulls the rug from under you. The difficulty rebalance makes what was a mildly entertaining yet easy game into a challenging tactical masterpiece. It is not for the beginner, and I would recommend one or two playthroughs before attempting this hack. If you’re a fan of Shining Force 2, but feel it lacks the challenge it once had, apply this to a copy of your rom. It’ll surprise you.

p.s. even veterans fear Super difficulty. ;)
