    For fans of the Lufia series, you're in for a treat. However, those who're not aquainted with comparatively drab graphics and a stronger emphasis on story and character maintainance will be disappointed. I'd hoped they might have pushed the visuals at least a little further, but overall the game will easily win over serious RPG enthusiasts every time.

  1. Excellent gameplay and some damn-fine GBA RPG graphics. [Mar 2003, p.72]
  2. The biggest downfall for the game however, is that it tried hard to incorporate the best elements from other highlight examples of the genre, and in doing so, suffers the same fate as most homages - it simply doesn’t have the same depth or natural “feel” of the originals.

    With a compelling storyline, fantastic graphics and gameplay, an endearing soundtrack and a huge ancient cave (which is an adventure in and of itself), Lufia is a title that all RPG fans and all GBA fans should get.
