This review is from: Lufia: The Legend Returns (Video Game)
The Lufia series has always been a major favorite of mine since I tried Lufia 2 for the SNES. To find out it would be coming out on a portable system, I was overjoyed. Until I got it. The dungeon system is a bunch of randomly generated levels and rooms until you get to the last floor. The graphics were pretty good considering it was on the Gameboy Color. But the battle system and the idea of different colors for different rows to gain abilities was a bit strange and a weak addition to the game. Granted, the animations for battles shouldn't really be compared to that of the SNES versions, but it can be better for the Gameboy Color. A small icon standing still while the enemy's image has a large slash going through it isn't very seducing.
Frankly, any fans of the Lufia series should stick with the SNES versions, and forget the Gameboy Color one unless you really want to play it on the go...
