  • Excerpt: That was the question that legions of gamers asked after Game Arts announced Media Rings would be developing LUNAR Legend, a new version of the classic role-playing game, LUNAR: (The) Silver Star (Story (Complete)), for the Game Boy Advance. After being released on the Sega CD back in 1993, the first title in the esteemed RPG series has spawned remakes on the Sega Saturn (twice, Japan only), Sony's Playstation, and the PC (also, Japan only), as well as tons of hardcore...

Lunar Legend – Review

  • Excerpt: As has been noted time and again in reviews on both this site and by the gaming public at large, the role-playing game (RPG) is a genre that lives and dies by its archetypes.

The sprites are most comparable to those in Chrono Trigger in terms of articulation, although Lunar uses shorter, more cheerful characters.

  • Excerpt: Lunar Legend is a throwback to the simpler days of role playing games. The Lunar series was originally conceived on the Sega CD back in 1992. Surprisingly, the name Lunar was remembered longer than the ill-fated Sega CD. It was later ported to the Sega Saturn, the Playstation, and now the Gameboy Advance. The game was great on the Sega CD over 10 years ago, but how does it hold up on the GBA?

  • Excerpt: When I flip over my Game Boy Advance review stack, I have to admit I try to look for the more entertaining titles because more often than not, titles on this platform are a rehash of something old or something outdated. There's very little in the way of original content. So when confronted with a slate of console RPG titles, I like to take a quick cursory look at the screenshots and I can tell you off the bat that Lunar Legend was the prettiest of the bunch.
