Summary: I think this is one of the best games in the series but I think what they removed for the international release was bull First this is a Boktai game First they removed all trace of it linking to the Mega Man Games Next the change the character names and then they change the story the 2 character dispite what people will tell you pick up a Japan copy of this game and translare it they are the brothers from Boktai 1 2 and 3 yes 3 This is the 4th game in the series the 3rd...
Summary: Konami continues to crank out the solid DS titles. The core gameplay occurs on an isometric field as your characters slash/shoot through every enemy in sight. The solar gameplay from the Boktai series has been modified and runs from sunlight to moonlight during the game-time (you need the light to power your weapons). There are slight rpg elements (stat building and equipment, but that's pretty much it) and a touch screen shooter minigame when you defeat bosses.
Summary: Hideo Kojima is best known as the creative mind behind the best selling and beloved Metal Gear series, but you may remember a few years back that he was also the man behind the Boktai games released for the GBA. Great as they were, they didn't sell very well, but hopefully Lunar Knights will change all that. Lunar Knights for the DS ditches the sunlight sensor used in the GBA games, as well as the Boktai name to boot.
Summary: The game starts off pretty slow, but once you start unlocking your abilities and weapons and really get into the game it actually becomes quite fun. I would have liked so see some more in-depth RPG elements, and leveling up your characters is quite simple and one-sided, but the real-time combat is fun and challenging. Overall, I think this game is worth owning.
Summary: THis game has been compared to dragonquest rocketslime, and scurge on the DS. This is good as both of those are great titles. However, if you do not like those types of games, you will probably want to pass on this game. However, if you do like them, this game is Awesome!!! Really, this is one of the best games out on the system currently. This game has lots of creativity (you can even use the old solar sensor from previous games in the series for this game).
Conclusion: The great thing about this is that RPG fans (like me) and non RPG fans can still aprecieate this game at the same level, sort of. The storyline is apparently the same as the game before it (but I wouldn't know cause i've not played that one), vampires have blocked out the sun using a giant machine called the ParaSOL and are plasnning to take over the world with these special customized suits.
Excerpt: "Lunar Knights is a continuation of the Boktai series of games that appeared on the GameBoy Advance, but were likely never heard of outside Japan. At the core the story surrounding the Boktai universe sort of involves an ongoing war between vampires and humanity, and in Lunar Knights the world is totally controlled and permanently shrouded in darkness by the fanged ones. Thus enters the solitary Lucian, a dark and mysterious figure, who wouldn't seem ...
Pros: Day/night and element mechanic keeps things interesting
Cons: Strange visuals, some non sequiturs here and there
