Fun, but it's not what I expected.

Summary: This game is fun, but not the same as the other Lufia games. The only other Lufia game I have played so far is Lufia: The Legend Returns, for Game Boy Color. I picked that game up randomly when I was a young teenager, and I fell in love with it. I'm a huge fan of RPGs, especially with a thick and compelling story line. This is an Action-RPG, which is not my favorite kind of RPG.
Summary: Slight let down from the SNES game that I was so fond of (although this IS a different game). Game seems a little rushed to me and combat is different from what I prefer, my own fault for not researching before hand. All in All though, a good game once you get into it. Decent story and a nice time killer.
Summary: Son's Review Lufia: Curse of the Sinistrals seemed a possibly promising game when I first saw it, and because I had not bought a DS game in a while, I ordered it. It wasn't my best decision. The story was not very deep or particularly lengthy or creative (stock characters: hero with awesome hair and great sense of "I won't let you do this", muscle man with more brawn than brain, the stern captain who falls in love with the hero, et cetera) and there was little bonus...
Summary: I thought this was a port of one of the old Super Nintendo games, so I picked it up on sale with Prime shipping. Before I opened it though, I read up on it, which I wish I had done before buying it. It's apparently a 'remake', and didn't have the greatest reviews. I will probably resell it elsewhere, since I wanted to play the original version.
Summary: Natsume has some decent games under their belt. But I don't understand what went wrong with Lufia. This is basically a remake of Lufia 2. I think the company did this because the story of Lufia 2 was better than Lufia, and the game is the first chronologically. I expected an RPG, or at least an action RPG (like Zelda). I didn't expect Kingdom Hearts meets Lufia though... It's not a bad game, it is just very bland game.
Summary: Quite honestly, I enjoyed the original more. I bring this up because there are a lot of events in this game that make sense to those of us that played Lufia II, but would seem stupid, random or confusing to everyone else. It's not really surprising considering they took a story that normally takes twenty hours to tell, and dumbed it down to six. Another thing I should warn you about is that the opening is horrible. I very nearly threw the game way when I saw it.
Summary: Lufia 2 Rise of the Sinistrals is the video game that I grew up with. It had everything: dastardly puzzles (Dragon Mountain), enemies that gave a real challenge (Idura, The Giant Spider), and a storyline that was so engaging it was the first real RPG that I played through. I still dig around for my copy of Lufia 2 to play whenever I go home. Now we get Lufia Curse of the Sinistrals. It was a god try on Natsume's part to bring the game for a whole new generation.
Summary: Lufia 2 ranks up there as one of my favorite RPGs of all time, and definitely my favorite SNES RPG of all time, so I was incredibly excited when I heard that they were making a remake. When I first seen the screenshots, and information came out, I was even more interested in how the battle system had been changed from the traditional turn based style to a new, almost Y's kind of action based combat.
