Product Description

While seemingly placid on the surface, the world of Lunar is slowly descending into chaos, as the Goddess Althena, the creator and guardian of the world, has disappeared and the valiant efforts of the legendary Dragonmaster Dyne and his faithful companions fade into obscurity. With Althena gone and no one able or willing to become the next Dragonmaster, a shadowy figure, known only as the Magic Emperor, has started plotting to usurp Althena’s place and become a god. In a remote village far removed from the decay that is slowly spreading throughout the world lives a young man named Alex, who dreams of one day becoming the next Dragonmaster like his hero Dyne. One day, Alex’s friend Ramus convinces him to head towards the cave near town, where it is rumored the legendary White Dragon resides. With Alex’s adopted sister Luna and his mysterious pet Nall in tow, Alex heads off on what seems to be a meaningless adventure, not knowing that it would be the first step in an epic journey with the fate of the entire world at stake. Since its initial release over a decade ago, Lunar: Silver Star Story has continued to captivate fans with its timeless tale of love, betrayal and redemption, expertly woven into its involving game play and cinematic presentation. Now the original masterpiece is being reborn on the PSP as Lunar: Silver Star Harmony with all new graphics, added game play features, and a re-mastered soundtrack so that a whole new generation of fans can experience this legendary first entry of the Lunar universe, while added story elements will be sure to please returning fans as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgia at its best May 3, 2010
Platform for Display:Sony PSP| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
If anyone has ever played Lunar before then this version is no different. The characters are the same, the gameplay is the same, and the story hasn't changed. So what makes this version a worth while game? Well the simple answer would be that it is Lunar.

For those new to the series, Lunar is a turn based rpg. Players control a total of five characters with their own strengths and weaknesses. Fighters for example have high defense and attack while mages have low defense and high magic. Battles takes place turn by turn and this is traditional rpg at its best.

The game takes place in the fictional world of Lunar governed by the benevolent goddess Althena. The adventure starts when young adolescent Alex decides to pursue the career of being a dragon master, a warrior who guards the goddess residing within the goddess tower.

What's great about this new remake is the over haul in the graphics, animation, and to an extent script. Players are able to play a new prologue explaining about the previous six heroes, new dialogue from npcs giving insight on the world, and a new script modified to modern times. The two songs within the game are given new lyrics, and though the most controversial part of the game, fits with the theme of the new remake. Character voices are also new with the exception of Luna. Oh and for fans out there, GHALEON's voice is much much improved. No more lipsy "Oh it's not bother" liner!

The one complaint with the game is its loading. The UMD version has a slight pause when players enter towns and houses. These pauses could get infuriating at times and distract from the overall flow of the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lunar remade AGAIN...and its still fantastic! March 4, 2010
Platform for Display:Sony PSP| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have bought every version of Lunar when it comes out because I love it so much (Sega CD/Saturn/PS1/GBA), and I bought a PSP for this game alone. The characters are very fun to play with, and you end up caring a lot about the characters.

I will say there seems to be a few seconds load time problem when you go though houses/rooms. It makes exploring the towns a bit of chore...but its not something that is a game killer (I put up with Lunar 2's terrible loading times on the Sega CD for battles...so I can put up with this).

All of the songs/voices have been changed from the PS1 version, which is disappointing. I really liked the boat song in the PS1 version, but this one is okay.

The cut-scenes are all taken from the PS1 version (the aspect ratio changes from widescreen to 4:3). Why they didn't remake them for the PSP version?

Overall the game feels WAY easier then any other version of the game. You can bypass a lot of enemies and still have no problem killing the bosses. So if you like turn based RPG's that easy to play and beat you will enjoy this game.

So with all of those downfalls I mentioned earlier why should you bother playing the game? Because the game is fantastic! Plain and simple. If you have never played a Lunar game before you are missing out on a great series. The first one is a classic and its so well loved its been remade over and over again. You should buy it now!

Platform for Display:Sony PSP|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
In the early 90's, Sega released a CD add-on for the Genesis. It was called (aptly enough) the Sega CD. It didn't exactly do well. Although there were a couple of stand out titles, none seem to stand out more to the RPG fanatic like one game in particular: Lunar the Silver Star. The game was, for it's release in 1992, something that blew the entire competition away with it's graphics, sound and animated cutscenes. Today it all seems laughable to compliment, but twenty years ago it was an astonishing technical achievement. But because the Sega CD never met that much of an audience, Lunar the Silver Star was underplayed. Seven years later (at least for North America) a Playstation Port called Lunar Silver Star Story Complete came out with updated visuals, smoother cutscenes and a more coherent and character driven story. It was a remake and remastered version that actually exceeded the quality of the original by expanding on stories, cutting out all the things that added nothing to the story and fleshing out the characters more.

Since then Lunar has had a couple of releases. There is a release you can find on the Gameboy Advance. You can also find a version of the game on the Apple store. But none of them stand out nearly as much as the Playstation original. Someone must be hoping to expose a new generation to the game because the PSP version is (technically) the sixth version of the game you can find (although I'm sure it dropped down before the version that's on IPads and ITouch devices). It's a good story, but the PSP version is not the definitive version. It looks better and the like, but there's a sense of charm that's simply not there anymore.

The actual story in Lunar Silver Star Story is pretty standard and basic. Alex dreams of adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars A First Time Players Review January 6, 2011
Platform for Display:Sony PSP|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Firstly allow me to say that I have never played any other version of Lunar, or Lunar: Eternal Blue, this review is literally from a unbiased perspective. With that said lets begin the review.

Lunar: Silver Star Harmony (From here on just Lunar) Starts out by letting you play/watch the final events of Dragonmaster Dynes adventure, Dragonmasters are people who have passed the trials of 4 legendary dragons to protect the goddess Althena from danger. After this scene the game focuses on Alex, Alex is a 15 year boy who idolizes Dyne and one day dreams of becoming a Dragonmaster himself, due to Dynes death 15 years prior. Alex is soon able to start this quest to become a Dragonmaster when his best friend Ramus tells him the white dragon cave can now be explored due to some ice surrounding the cave melting, although the adventure initially starts out with them looking for a very rare dragon diamond. Before Alex and Ramus go on their adventure, Alex has to find a way to tell Luna, a girl who has been living with Alex since she was a baby that he wants to go on this adventure, eventually Luna agrees to let Alex go on the condition that she is able to come along, due to her being worried sick if she lets Ramus and Alex go alone. This ultimately sets in motion a tale of, love, friendship, and betrayal.

That's really just the tip of the story in Lunar, the story told here is an enjoyable one and I found myself liking each and every character introduced, the story never does stray and it does not blur the initial purpose of the game, it just keeps getting more and more interesting the further you get in Lunar.
