Product Description

Product Description

Lunar Legend is an epic role-playing adventure following a group of friends as they venture around the world following in the footsteps of a great Dragonmaster named Dyne. The main character, Alex, is a magically gifted young man drawn to seek out the legendary Dragons of Lunar Legend in order to take the Dragon's trials and become protector of the Goddess Althena like his idol. With a strong cast of characters, more than 200 items to find and use, and over 50 different magical spells, Lunar Legend on the Game Boy Advance will draw you into Lunar's magical universe wherever you may be.

Amazon.com

Continuing the time-honored tradition of repackaging old console games, the Lunar RPG series has come to the GBA with Lunar Legend.

You play Alex, a young boy who hopes to one day be a Dragonmaster like his dearly departed hero Dyne. One day, a wizard named Nash comes into town, and needs an escort to a nearby shrine in the woods. You, your childhood friend Luna, and your flying cat-like pet Nall accompany Nash to the shrine, and your adventure begins.

Lunar Legend is an indirect port of a 10-year-old Sega CD game. The locations and characters are the same, but the dialog has been significantly shrunk to fit on the cartridge. This is a minus for true Lunar fans, since much of the story is lost. However, even with "Lunar Lite," you get a very satisfying game.

The game play is standard RPG fare: You walk around, randomly attack monsters, explore dungeons, and talk to villagers in various towns for quests and clues. The battle system, like most RPGs, is turn-based, and has some nice additions like the "Arts Gage" system, which allows special attacks after your character makes enough attacks during a battle. Lastly, you can collect cards throughout the game, and trade them with friends via link cable or sell them in various shops. Strangely, that's all you can do with them. It would have been nice if there was a mini card game of some kind.

The graphics in Lunar Legendare spectacular--on par with Golden Sun. The sound is top notch too, though the Luna's singing can get a little tiresome.

If you're looking for an easy RPG experience, or would like to relive part of the classic Lunar Series, give Lunar Legend a shot. You won't be disappointed. --Bryan Karsh

Pros:

  • Amazing graphics
  • Funny cat-like sidekick
  • Trade game cards via link cable
  • Great story
  • Simple, yet fun battle system

Cons:

  • A shadow of the original CD version of the game--may upset true fans of the series
  • What use are collecting cards, if there is no mini card game?

Anyone remember the Sega CD? I do (I still have mine) and one of the best games for that Genesis add-on was Working Designs' Lunar: Silver Star. Eventually it would make its way onto the PS1, and it has now arrived on the GBA with varying results. Lunar Legend is a re-telling of sorts of the original game with varying differences; such as characters showing up in different places, cities being designed different, and parts of the plot and storyline have been changed. The full motion anime cut scenes and full orchestral score obviously couldn't make the cut onto cartridge format (the anime cut scenes have been replaced by anime cels which pop up now and then), but the overall graphics of different towns and character designs are much improved over the original. Battles are much better as well by being faster paced, better animated, and more character detail than ever before. New options have been added such as the Arts Gauge and a new card collection, and menus are easier to navigate through than before, except the shop interface can be a pain now and then. All in all, if you missed out on the Lunar phenomenon that older gamers beared witness to years ago, Lunar Legend is a good pickup. Then again, if the original Lunar was a beloved game of yours, this GBA conversion won't add anything since it's missing most of it's original charm (and the overall epic feel), but nonetheless this game is still a more than solid pick up.

5.0 out of 5 stars a little glitchy, but still a great game December 27, 2002
By Mitsuki
I was going to take away one star for the glitches, but I really, really love this game, so much so that it overshadows the bad side; The first glitch I noticed was that Burg turns a weird, brown color sometimes after the player returns to it from the Weird Forest; it goes away if the player exits and comes back, though, so it doesn't affect gameplay. The second one is the glitch that occurs when trying to use the dragon feather to exit dungeons in dungeons that can't be exited. Instead of a simple "it can't be used" type of message, it will try to use it and the character will freeze. Nothing more can be done at this point other than restarting the game pak and loading a previously saved game.
Oh yeah, there is a third glitch, but it's rather useful; reloading a game will cause all characters to have full health and magic points again. Incredibly useful for being stuck in dungeons and needing leveling up!
The graphics are excellent. I didn't know those little sprites could do so much. Alex actually moves his mouth while shouting at Ghalleon! Luna flails her arms and legs when she's captured! Characters' dialogue expressions (that's what I'm calling those pictures next to their dialogue when they talk) change according to their mood.
I love all the characters; they all have real concerns and nice quirks, helping to make them all individuals. Most of the townspeople even say different things as the story progresses.
The storyline keeps me playing almost nonstop. New things happen all the time instead of just repetitive dungeon hopping. I suppose this fulfills the side quest craving

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Big fans who played the original versions of Lunar 1 before this will probably not be pleased with this GBA installment, but it is a great way for newbies to the series to be introduced to the story and world of Lunar. I started out with this game, and loved it immediately. I beat it within a week. The battles are somewhat bland (I never did like the Final Fantasy battle system, and Legend's battle system reminded me of it), but the rest of the game was great. The cute sprites are a big improvement from the earlier versions; however, I wish that, instead of using anime-cels to portray what are supposed to be cutscenes, they had played it out with sprites.

Either way, Lunar Legend is fun, and it is worth it to get.

5.0 out of 5 stars Listen to me rave about this game! November 13, 2003
By A Customer
Before I start, let me just say: This is the best RP I've ever played. If you are interested in why I like it so much, keep on reading. But if you don't want to hear me rave, you'd better leave now...
---THE STORY
The emphasis of Lunar Legend is the on story. It's kinda like being in a movie, or a choose-your-own-adventure. You get to move your character around, occasionally pick what to say. But the main point is seeing the story unfold below your eyes, and it's done wonderfully. Battles are easy, puzzles are few, and you don't even have to walk between towns, so it's not exactly a challenging game. There are about six main characters and they all have their own personality. By the end of the game you really know them. I mean, I could imagine what each character would do in any given situation. When they talk, you can see their faces, and their faces change expressions - really letting you know when their mad, or sad, or whatever. They each have their own story, their own reason for joining you on your quest. And the plot itself is huge. You travel back and forth on one mission then another across the whole world - but it never gets tedious because you do not actually have to walk from one area to another, and people will say different things everytime you visit an area. Overall, the story will keep you enthralled as you play out the game.
(No, I'm not going to actually recount the plot to you. Just play the game!)

---GAME MECHANICS
The controls of the game couldn't be simpler, and the graphics are good in my opinion. Your little sprite is really cute. The music is also good.
