Nippon Ichi’s ‘Disgaea’ series hasn’t seen release on iOS as of 2015, with no announced intention to do so in the near future. This is a great shame because the current phones on the market are more than capable of running the DS or PSP ports of the original game and its sequel. Perhaps the people at Nippon Ichi are afraid they’d break the app-store, with nobody ever having to buy another tactics game with 9999 character levels to achieve and generated levels outside the campaign to give infinite variety? It’s into this vacant spot that Fantasy War Tactics slides, a freemium game that boasts some extremely high production values.
Was there ever an RPG as desired as Final Fantasy III? When all of the other games were receiving ports to the Playstation in the golden era of gaming this title slipped the net and it wouldn’t be until it saw eventual release on the DS that gamers could get hold of it and play it for themselves.
Shining Force II is the third game in Sega’s ‘Shining’ series that started with dungeon crawler Shining in the Darkness on the Megadrive and continued into Tactical RPG territory in Shining Force. Logic would dictate that the first game I reviewed would be one of these two titles, however Shining Force II has a special place in my heart and I felt it was only fitting that it be the first game reviewed on this new site.
