Of course, Western audiences have long enjoyed the Shining games while Lord Monarch - and, sadly, Nihon Falcom itself – remain largely in the dark outside of Japan. It’s a real shame that Lord Monarch never saw an English port. It’s a well designed game with crisp, colorful graphics; a nice soundtrack; and solid, interesting gameplay. While I doubt the storyline is particularly amazing, the quality of all of the other parts just makes me wish I could experience the whole game as intended. As I learned from selling my Shining Force III (and my Dragon Force… and my Panzer Dragoon Saga… sigh…), while you can stumble through a game and even enjoy pretty much everything it has to offer, it’s still not the same. If there’s any consolation, it’s that while I may not have fully understood what I’m missing from Lord Monarch, at least I had the pleasure of accompanying Alfred on his quest to do whatever it was we set out to do.
