    While Lufia II on the SNES might have been a rising star, this title is clearly cursed. The game's problems get in the way of enjoying almost everything.

    This is an excellent game. While it is not the longest, the storyline is rich and the gameplay is enjoyable, reminding one vaguely of Secret of Mana. If you want an RPG with a deep and touching plot which tells a tale approaching near hierogamy (sorry Selan, but its obvious) with an all around deeper transcendental meanings then Curse of the Sinistrals will not disappoint.

    Though Lufia Curse of the Sinistrals does a nice experiment in taking an old game and turning it in to a new direction. The shallow gameplay, blocky graphics, constant slowdowns, serious lack of exploration and other pacing issues with the story. Makes this a package that takes away all the charm of the old game and misses the opportunity to be a great reboot Full Review »

    The original game on the SNES was one of my favourites. When I ordered this, I thought it was just a simple re-release. How wrong I was. It's like a totally new game, remade from the ground up. The battle system and the balancing isn't great, but they retained everything that made the original game great - music, story characters. I hope this game sell buckets and it gets a sequel!
