A Remastered Game Spoiled by the Perfection of an Older Version

Summary: In the early 90's, Sega released a CD add-on for the Genesis. It was called (aptly enough) the Sega CD. It didn't exactly do well. Although there were a couple of stand out titles, none seem to stand out more to the RPG fanatic like one game in particular: Lunar the Silver Star.
Summary: As a player that specializes in RPG's and has beaten the original Lunar: Silver Star Story on two different systems (Sega Saturn in 1996 and PS1 in 1998) I was under the impression that this was a going to be a reboot of that game.
Summary: I thought this game was too easy, but I am an adult. If I don't have to use much strategy or upgrading of any kind and I survive every battle, it must be easy. I guess stocking up on things that give you health points is a strategy.
Excerpt: I picked Lunar: Silver Star Harmony up back when I was visiting the states last year due to the lack of release over here and I can't believe what a great game I would have missed if I hadn't. Plot: You begin the game as Alex, his friend Luna and Alex's random pet cat thing called Nall.
Pros: Great battle system
Cons: Characters have annoying voices in cut scenes
Excerpt: Since its release for the Mega-CD in the early nineties, Game Arts’ cult RPG Lunar: The Silver Star has enjoyed an unusually storied existence, resurfacing in various guises on the SEGA Saturn, PlayStation and GameBoy Advance, before landing most recently on the PSP in 2010.
Pros: Distinctive presentation; good script; enduring gameplay
Cons: Few defining features as a remake; slightly short; dialogue less wacky than the original
