  1. RPGs live and die on factors other than graphics and while LUNAR is weak in the graphic department (other than the first class anime sequences), it makes it up in spades in the more important areas such as plot, characterization and game system.
  2. So Lunar Silver Star Story may possess all the weakness of most Japanese RPGs - sub-standard graphics, linearity and a sickening level of morality, but the younger generation will love the friendly interface and unfolding story.

    There's a list of other games that surpass Lunar in quality, style and substance. Even if you're a fan of the Sega CD version, you will find Lunar Silver Star Story Complete only worth a nostalgic rental spin..and nothing more.

The story and dialogue in this game are brilliantly hilarious at times. The presentation is top notch with anime cutscenes, great voice acting, better than SNES 2-D graphics, and Disgaea style emotion displays. The battle system is a bit slow due to enemies having to reposition themselves before every attack, but I soon got used to it. Also the ability to program macros like in Phantasy Star IV does a lot to speed up the battles. There are no random encounters in this rpg. Instead there are enemies wandering dungeons that you must touch to begin a battle. This Sega-CD game was ahead of it's time in many ways, and the PSX version is the ultimate edition. If you see this in a used game shop pick it up for sure. **Normally this would get a 9/10, but I need to offset the two low reviews on this site that have zero explaination.** Full Review »
