Lufia: The Ruins of Lore review (GBA)
21 December 2007
Excerpt: So, what you’ll be doing in virtually every dungeon is constantly switching between characters to have them break what needs to be broken and then flipping a switch or pressing a button to get to the next room. Great “puzzles”, guys! With the lack of brain power needed to accomplish this, it really makes you notice certain things about the dungeons — like how they’re really long and dull.
Excerpt: Are you looking for a game with monster training, 11 classes, multiple characters, and over 50 hours of gameplay for your Game Boy Advance? Do you want a game forged from a classic series that takes you back through memory lane and reminds you why you first started playing RPGs? If so, Lufia: Ruins of Lore may seem like the game for you, but be warned: prostitutes in New York are ENVIOUS of the level of suck this game brings.
Excerpt: Lufia: The Ruins of Lore (LROL) is the game I love to hate. Ever since I first played Lufia 2 for the SNES, I had always craved a sequel that would live up to the incredibly high expectations that game created. After a complete sham of a game was released on the Gameboy Color (Lufia: The Legend Returns), which I found to be a complete waste of time, I was incredibly excited to hear of a new Lufia coming straight to the GBA.
Excerpt: It's become clear by now that the Game Boy Advance is like a refuge for near-extinct genres of games, such as 2D side-scrollers and traditional console role-playing games. RPGs are particularly well suited to the system, and the GBA's got a good number of high-quality ones already, including originals like Golden Sun and Tactics Ogre: The Knight of Lodis, as well as accurate translations of classics like Phantasy Star Collection and Breath of Fire II.
Excerpt: In the past we’ve seen some excellent role-playing games on the Gameboy Advance. Many of you will instantly think of the Golden Sun games, which are great, but a bit competition doesn’t hurt. Lufia: The Ruins of Lore continues a series that started on the SNES sporting cute characters, an interesting story, lots of fighting, and a good dose of humor.
