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.

And as with any JRPG, the monster battles get kind of annoying and overly repetitive, and after a point are no longer worth the time. At least you get a couple mages that let you nuke your way through dungeons, and give you just enough MP so that you get close to running out right when you reach the next town. As long as you're not fleeing battles, you'll level up enough for the ending. I didn't feel like I had to revisit dungeons to grind a few levels.
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).
To start with, the most obvious difference between this one and the PSone version is the graphics. Due to the power of the PSP, this game is given a pretty overhaul and the game has never looked better. The environments and the characters are more vivid and detailed than before. Also, the effects of the magic and skills are are beautiful to witness.
To me, the single most important part of any Role Playing Game is the story followed by the characters. I've played role playing games that may not have had the most original story, but what they had was told well and the characters made an average story a better one. Lunar is one of those games. This version offers a bit more insight into the story of the four hero's and how their final battle which does add more context to the main story. The only gripe I have with the story is that the dialogue has been altered a bit. It seems they took some of the more risque comments out and some of the language has been removed as well. This may not bother some folks, but I don't like censorship and would have preferred them leaving well enough alone. This is one of the few games where it is enjoyable to talk to NPC's because after events happen, they usually have a comment about it.
Fortunately, the characters are just as great as ever (with the exception of Alex, who was always just a dull lead). Everyone is just as you will remember them and if this will be your first time, you are bound to find at least one person to like.
My single biggest complaint with this game is the remastered music. I want to believe they really tried to improve on the amazing music from the PSone version, but a vast portion of the tracks just sound flat or the off. I would have been perfectly happy if they had just imported the music from the PSone version. Another note about the sound is that the voices are different. A few are better than before (Nall's new voice in particular, and I do like Luna's more "sassy" voice) same are about the same and some I think are worse (Royce's voice is TERRIBLE. She sounds like she should be at a peep rally, not trying to take over the world). It would have been nice if they had arranged it so the characters spoke more often.
Overall, this is a solid re-re-issue of a classic game. While the music is not as good as it was before, the updated visuals, new story elements and great
dialogue (even if some of it has been toned down) and fun characters make Lunar Silver Star Harmony a journey worth taking.
It's an epic story the has everything! Friendships forged in battle, twists and turns, and even betrayal! Not to mention comedy relief!
The game does have it's boring parts though, like all old school JRPG games, a good portion of the game is spent walking around in circles killing monsters that randomly jump you, so that you can get that next level, to see if you are now powerful enough to beat that monster that keeps wiping the floor with your face.
On top of all that, this is the better version of the game, and the most easiest to obtain. If you haven't had the chance to try out this game, then THIS is your chance! If you are a long time fan of the game, then you need to check it out to marvel at all the enhancements and improvements made to this beloved classic. Basically? You REALLY need to try this game!
