STORY: Lunar has a somewhat clichéd epic love story backed by one of the most memorable casts in RPG gaming. You start out as a young boy named Alex, who, along with his adopted sister Luna, best friend Ramus, and "flying cat" companion Nall, go out to fulfill his dreams of becoming a Dragonmaster like his childhood hero, Dyne. The world of Lunar itself is expertly crafted (though the history and backstory is better explained in the sequel, "Eternal Blue") and it's so much fun to go through and explore. The story captivated me when I was much younger and still manages to do so after many years and different versions. It's very fun, adventurous, suspenseful, and incredibly humorous, and it always does a great job of presenting and pacing itself.
GRAPHICS: Simply put, gorgeous. The game looks beautiful on the PSP. All the backgrounds are wonderfully hand-drawn, and the character sprites have been greatly upgraded from their original forms. There are many anime style cutscenes throughout the game that all look great, and the entire main cast has different character portraits that show up when speaking, and they are all very well done and show a great range of emotion. Battle animations are also impressive and very unique showing each character's personality through their movement. This is not a simple upgrade, the graphics have been completely overhauled and the care and polish Game Arts put into this title is evident from the get-go.
MUSIC/SOUND: For the music, original Lunar composer Noriyuki Iwadare has returned to re-orchestrate the entire soundtrack for the game.Read more ›
The towns and dungeons are all gorgeous (yes, even the dungeons), and yet they still hold the charm found in older versions of the game. Battles are exciting to watch, with every move and spell shining in magnificent glory. While the graphics may not be as polished as a Final Fantasy game, that is not Lunar's aim; the graphics are lighthearted, colorful, and gorgeous in their own way. The cutscenes are the lovely original animations from the Playstation game, an aspect surely missed by players of the gameboy advance game.
(A note to diehard fans, however: all of the voice actors have been changed in this rendition of the game; some are better (Phacia, Alex), some are worse (Nall, Royce), but at least they keep the original ideas alive.)
The music you loved from the previous incarnations of the game are still there, but in brilliant, high definition rearrangements. The music of Lunar is a character all its own and a key aspect of the gaming experience. One should definitely play this game with headphones to witness every glorious note as intended.
Storytelling doesn't get any better than Lunar. Each of the characters have believable personalities, making the player really connect and feel for them. The story itself is full of twists and turns, danger and betrayal, and, above all, it is all about love. It is both exciting and heartwarming.Read more ›
The main story is there with some redone visuals and remastered soundtrack. Combat system is also there with some tweaks as well. It's still an overall good game, but it is nowhere near as good as the PSone game.
The bottom line is that this game is definitely worth playing in its current incarnation despite its flaws.
If you enjoy an excellent story in a game, which is certainly a rare thing in itself, you will enjoy this game. Mystic dragons, powerful reincarnated god-like beings, and ancient prophecy; these are just a few of the elements that await you on your journey.
In fact, it is such a fantastic journey that the somewhat average MAIN character development won't seem to matter. (Much.)
Also, you will want to pull out your hair (unless you have infinite time to spend) having to wait a number of seconds between each transition between maps. There are quite a few separate maps, especially noticeable in towns. (Just thought I'd warn you.)
Great game! I'm glad I finally had a chance to enjoy it.
**One final warning: this game is kind of easy (but not unsatisfyingly so) especially if you grind for XP earlier on...don't forget to save your game after playing for 8 hours straight. You might decide to try your hand at the optional side-quest near the end of your game only to die instantly. (Like me.)**
