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.
Summary: Well this is not exactly like the original release of Lunar Silver Star Story, but if you don't want to pay collector prices for the Sega CD or PSX version of Lunar SSS, then this version is acceptable. Unfortunately the humor and touch of Working Designs is missing, which makes this classic RPG seem a little more plain. It's a very linear RPG and may seem kind of outdated now, but when it came out it was really amazing, mainly for the storyline and the anime sequences.
Summary: The game arrived before I was expected. It's a remake totally new, with new graphics and new music. If you have played the old game, I recommend you. If you not played, but you like the good adventures, this is your game!
Great PSP 3000 J/RPG Library Addition, Especially When Discounted
Tinfoot Tall, Amazon

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.
