The best Sega Saturn game ever made

It's a Strategy RPG that let's you choose one of 8 rulers to play where you try to save the world (by conquering everyone else). When you start your first save, you can't pick Goldark or Reinhart as they are a bit more of a difficult start due to everyone being against Goldark at the start and Reinhart being right smack in the middle of every other kingdom. So you have to beat the game once to unlock those two rulers.

When you pick a ruler, you get a little intro on what's going on and some story. You start off with your ruler, and 4 officer generals. Each general, including your ruler, starts off with a certain type of troop and a magic spell, and depending on the general an equipped item. In the non overmap part of the game, you can do actions such as talk to your generals, equip items, increase your general's troops via rewards you get for winning battles, try to win captured generals to your side, or search castles for items/generals.

Once you get to the overmap, you can deploy your generals into armies and have them attack other kingdoms. It's a free for all so everyone is fair game.

Once you encounter an enemy, you choose which general you want to fight with and the enemy chooses theirs. Biggest thing to look for when choosing a general is what type of troop the enemy general has and try to counter it with a type that is good against them. For example, Cavalry are good against Soldiers.

Once in battle you choose a formation for your troops. This allows them to either have better defense, offense or speed. You fight until one of the generals hp has been reduced to 0 or they retreat or time runs out and it's a draw.

As you fight in battles, you get experience and level up. As you level, you get your standard HP increases, strength, mp, etc. At certain levels, you also get an additional, more powerful spell. Each general is fairly unique in it's stats and spells. So as you get used to the game you know which ones are useful and which are trash that never see the battlefield.

Some spells are great against enemy generals. Some are good against enemy troops. There are even a few that revive your troops.

Now here are the rulers.

You've got Mikhail, the samurai ruler. You may have seen him before

You've got Goldark, the "bad guy" that everyone hates

you've got Teiris, the cute little elf queen that is a pain to choose as a character

You've got Wein, the whitebread of the group. He also sucks

There's Reinhart, the child emperor who has awesome magic and is super smart

There's Junon, who is a woman under that mask. Very badass.

Leon is a bruce lee wanabee.

And then there's Gongos, a wild beastman

Each Ruler has a few generals under their command, and each general can control one of a few types of troops, each of which have strenghts and weakenesses against each other. They are cute and make funny little sounds when dying.

    For a bit I was a part of the Dragon Force speed run community on discord and tried my hand at speed running. But man, there is so much RNG involved and even the quickest games takes at least 4 hours. I sorta gave up as I didn't want to spend my time playing over and over and over especially when the guy who holds all the records is way faster and knowledgeable.

    I will always upvote Sega Saturn chat

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.
    the "no true scotch man" fallacy.

    More fun Dragon Force facts.

    The Soldier and Samurai troops types have the exact same strengths and weaknesses EXCEPT that the Samurai is very good against Dragons. Which makes it the ONLY troop type they is very good against Dragons, which is very useful in the late game.

    Mages and Archers are also almost exactly the same. They’re the only ranged troop but mages are very good against Zombies, so really there’s no need to ever use archers.

    Junon was my first ruler that I started off with. Harpies are pretty OP. Plus Sonic Blast <3

    Right after I got this game a bit after it came out, I went to a computer and sports camp and the activity I signed up for was web page design. So the first web page I ever made was a Dragon Force site where I would scan in pages of the manual and make it part of my site.

    Technically that was my first introduction to “programming” since I loved the camp and next time I went, I did a programming class.

    Is Dragon Force a harem building game. Are there any tsundere generals.

  • KamiroKamiro Registered User regular
    The save file for this game was huge. You could only ever have one save going at a time using the Sega Saturn’s onboard memory card. I later got a memory expansion card that let me store more.

    There are a few tsundere generals. There are a few unique general to general interactions when they meet in battle. They get some special dialogue, some of which is tsundere.

    Also, there is one general who will immediately desert your army if the army he is in encounters an enemy army that has a female general.

    Hell yeah, tsundere generals! Looks like a fun game, actually.

    And why does he desert, does he fall in love with her, or does he hate interacting with women.

    I started playing Metro Exodus and this game is gorgeous and detailed but there is so much dialog. 10 minutes of action, 15 minutes of talking, 10 minutes of action, 15 minutes of talking - the game suffers from the dreaded stop/start Kojima pacing. The game suffers from Kojimumps.
