A good game to relive the original

Summary: After hearing This Lufia adaptation was an action RPG, I wasn't interested in getting it, especially after seeing other reviews that lamented on how different the game was from the original. I decided to buy it so I could at least ensure I have a copy, as they aren't in any game stores any longer, locally. I love the music and story flow; the music is just as I remembered it from the original and the story is mostly the same.
Although not nearly as classic, still a decent remake

Summary: As a big time fan of the original SNES Lufia II (I played the Jap version which can be translated as "The Four Insane Sinistrals"), I give much credit to this much-altered DS remake. Lufia II on SNES easily tops my all-time favorite game list. Never played a better turn-based RPG (or RPGs in any other form). Here're some pluses & minuses IMHO: + Music: Not much different from the original, which was my favorite aspect of the game. Biggest plus in my opinion.
Summary: It took me a little bit to actually get into this game and even now I prefer to play it in short 10-30 minute bursts instead of the marathon gaming sessions I'm usually keen to. The story is probably the strongest point and will leave you engaged, laughing, and content as things progress. The action is a bit sloppy at times and generally leads to you taking a hefty amount of hits as you dole out your own.
Summary: This game is addicting! I know there's a lot of RPG games for the DS, but this one probably takes the cake. Maybe others find it not-so-fun, but it's them. Once you played the game, you're the one who could judge it. For me, it's an epic game. Recommended for Portable RPG lovers.
I liked it but...(SPOILERS in the marked areas,beware!!)

Summary: I liked this game but...I wanted to LOVE it. I have been a fan of the Lufia series since they first hit our shores back in 1993. I still have my original Lufia and Lufia 2 for the SNES in their original boxes, maps and all! (I have the gameboy color title too) Now, don't get me wrong, there are so many things that this game does right, but it could have been so much more. First I'll get the bad out of the way. My biggest gripe?...WTF is up with Maxim????
First Impressions - Lufia: Curse of the Sinistrals

Summary: As a hardcore RPG gamer, I tend to buy a lot of RPGs that hit the market. I might not finish them all at once with some taking months or even years to complete, but I do pick them all up eventually. Lufia: Curse of the Sinistrals is a game that I have had my eyes on for some time. Being that it's a DS game, my wife would approve of the purchase because playing it means I can sit in the living room while she watches whatever it is she watches on the style channel.
So let me get this straight... the general consensus is that it sucks because it's different?

Summary: As far as action RPGs go (And lord knows these are among my favorite types of RPGs) I had plenty of fun with this... but as an RPG in itself. I was judging it as a game on its own, not as a Lufia game and what I got was satisfying. The gameplay was solid, it controls well, and at the end of the day, that should be the most important aspect.
