Lunar: Silver Star Harmony
13 April 2010
Excerpt: Lunar: Silver Star Harmony is the PSP remake of one of the 32-bit era's most beloved role-playing games. Lunar: The Silver Star originally appeared on Sega's red-headed stepchild (the CD, not the Saturn), but also saw enhanced releases on the PlayStation and Game Boy Advance. I'm a longtime (and admittedly jaded) fan of Japanese RPGs, but for reasons that are neither understandable nor acceptable, I never got my hands on Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete .
Conclusion: As a long time fan of Lunar I couldn't be happier with the remake on PSP. The ability to save your game in the character menu paired with the sleep function of Sony's handheld makes this long role-playing experience very approachable. The story and the characters easily stand the test of time making Lunar a great option for those who don't mind a straight forward turn-based battle system.
Excerpt: Lunar is an RPG with a very rich history. Not only has it appeared on many videogame systems, but it has been remade many times and has become for Game Arts what the original Ys is for Falcom. For those with little knowledge of the game or the series, a little history lesson is in order. Lunar: The Silver Star was developed by Game Arts and was released on the Sega CD in 1992 in Japan. Working Designs then localized the game for America in late 1993.
