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.

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.

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!

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.

All in all, however, a "must buy" if you are still holding onto your PSP 3000 for real J/RPG title play, like I am, and see a price drop. I have had this for a few years now, and as a twilight handheld console game, I say grab LUNAR when you see a good price (I think I bought my copy at the 10 dollar mark as well).

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.
