Summary: Lunar is a very good game. Its an old school classic that is mostly overlooked in favour of other games such as Final Fantasy or Breath of Fire which were all released around the same time. If your looking for an RPG with a fairly interesting plot you should consider this one.
Great PSP 3000 J/RPG Library Addition, Especially When Discounted
3 weeks ago
Summary: The only real drag is the mind-numbing load times for dungeon transitions... for XP grinding, this really is kind of a major bleah. Everything else, however, stands up well - and if you aren't much of a "seek and destroy... again, and again, and..." kind of player, then the wait between going back and forth to the same dungeon scene to kill the baddies is rather a sideline issue.
Summary: Lunar is an RPG of the old day variety, meaning that it is one of those games you can hold into comparison with ones like chrono trigger and many of the early final fantasies. The dialogue is awesome, with many character lines being quite funny. The combat is something great, with options of manually entering commands, or choosing to have an AI take over the action.
Game breaking bug spoils a very solid remake of a great classic
29 September 2014
Summary: I'll say more about it, but the important point is this remake has a game breaking bug that's fairly far into the game. After hitting it I saw it documented on Gamefaqs forum. I have a PSP-3000 with the newest firmware, though I read of people with 1000s with the same issue. I tried toggling off the UMD cache to no effect. If not for this "fluffy bug"...err...bug...this is a pretty solid remake of a remake.
Summary: My wife lived this game as a young teenager and so I got this game for her and our kids to play.. So far they all have taken Intrest and it has been helping our children build their reading skills as they have to read throughout the game.. Very happy we bought it..
Summary: Game Arts' Lunar series, despite being nearly a score old, hasn't advanced much during its existence, largely consisting of two main installments, The Silver Star and its sequel Eternal Blue, and numerous remakes. Though attempts have been made to advance the franchise beyond these two installments, the first, Magic School Lunar, never saw release outside Japan, and the second, Dragon Song, largely received negative reviews.
