    If you've never played Lunar before and you own a PSP, this is your chance to play a classic.
  2. At the end of my adventure into my childhood, I came out loving Lunar even more than I already did. Lunar: Silver Star Harmony is a testament to how great stories transcend time and keeps getting better as time wears one.

    No, it's not groundbreaking. Yes, its a remastered port of a rather old JRPG. Who cares? This is a charming, light, almost "innocent" No, it's not groundbreaking. Yes, its a remastered port of a rather old JRPG. Who cares? This is a charming, light, almost "innocent" RPG that made me realize just how dense, exhausting and mean spirited the RPG market has become. Who knows, maybe its my age but I found the almost Disney like (or possibly Miyazaki) tone of this game utterly captivating. The voice acting does take something away but this is a beautifully presented quality game which focuses on the charm of the character. Finally, the music is absolutely brilliant. If you're looking for a old school JRPG with hand drawn animation for the PSP I think this is a much better option than Phantasy Star Portable or either of the Star Ocean ports. Full Review »

    Its a great game with very good character development, The story line although predictable is also good and very interesting. voice overs areIts a great game with very good character development, The story line although predictable is also good and very interesting. voice overs are well done and the anime cut scenes are wonderful. i also enjoyed the music to this game as well and it never gets stale or annoying. my biggest complaints about this game is probably the overly frequent monster fights that drag on forever and the respawning enemys. every time you leave a area all the monsters pop back up when you return and you have to fight them all over again. running away seems to be about 50/50, so thats not a solution ether... another issue i had with the game was how easy it is, i never died a single time throughout the entire game, i always had enough gold to buy all the best items and gear. overall its a pretty good game and is for sure worth playing.

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. Story: 10/10.. The story was one of the best I have seen. It was a combination of romance and desire.
    Graphics: 6/10.. The graphics of the game were more of the GBA level (except for the Pokémon-like cutscenes).
    Gameplay: 10/10.. Just great..

    The difficulty of this game is really low. I finished the game with my whole crew of level 40. And I didn't have many special items either.. The only thing that disappointed me in the whole game was the ending. The ending wasn't as good as the whole story. The story was romantic and sometimes heartbreaking. But the ending was too... easy.. By easy I mean that the ending wasn't the special type. And worse, they let us "walk" at the end. Meaning, they gave us the controls, to navigate. Which just made everything worse :/ They should have ended it with a pokémon-like cutscene..
