Good JRPG - Slightly overrated

Summary: This is a highly regarded JRPG, and for good reasons, but it is not without its flaws, and is not a five star RPG. Final Fantasy IV, Dragon Warrior VII, Crisis Core, Star Ocean (the original), Fire Emblem: Awakening, Radiant Historia, Suikoden, Chrono Trigger, Elder Scrolls V, many of the Shin Megami Tensei releases... these are 5 star RPGs.
Summary: Lunar silver star story is a legendary game, this remake is no so much. Lunar 1 is no longer a quite difficult game now, this remake is so easy.. Graphics lost all the charm, and the characters models are ugly. Very few added in this remake, and the lenght of the game decreased, no longer working design package and translation, even if most of the lines are ripped-off from the working design work.
Summary: Nice RPG with a cool story, easy to learn as you play. Lots of places to go to and and lots of good spells to get (and some not) they let you to know the characters pretty well which is also nice. So if you haven't played any Lunar game, I can recommend it.
Summary: I'll confess, my views may be a bit skewed as I still prefer the Sega CD version. I was interested in this as it expands a bit on the story at the very beginning, and the idea of seeing Lunar redone graphically sounded great. What I did not expect was the source material to be completely hacked to bits. Everything is a dungeon, selected from a map screen. There is no overworld.
Summary: I was pretty excited to find out about this new update to one of my favorite Role Playing Games. Though I never did get to play the game when it was first released on the Sega Saturn, I did get to experience to Playstation version which I adored. So, how does this game compare to that re-issue? To start with, the most obvious difference between this one and the PSone version is the graphics.
Summary: When I had first heard that Lunar: Silver Star Story was being remade again in the form of a PSP video game, I was so excited to finally be able to experience the story that I have heard and read from so many people of being one of the best RPG stories ever told in a video game. While I have not completed the game to date, I have put in over 10 hours and have enjoyed every minute of it thus far. Lunar Silver Star Harmony is a great looking game on the PSP.
Summary: If anyone has ever played Lunar before then this version is no different. The characters are the same, the gameplay is the same, and the story hasn't changed. So what makes this version a worth while game? Well the simple answer would be that it is Lunar. For those new to the series, Lunar is a turn based rpg. Players control a total of five characters with their own strengths and weaknesses.
Excerpt: Lunar: Silver Star Harmony begins at the end of the legend of the Four Heroes. Ghaleon, Hell Mel, Lemia, and Dragonmaster Dyne interrupt the ramblings of Eiphel, a self-styled dark lord, who is attempting to siphon the power of the Goddess Althena. After some very brief characterization, the player takes control of the Four Heroes and their battle against Eiphel. This is the tutorial. The game never tells the player what to do, but losing the battle is impossible.
Summary: I reeeeealy hope they didn't screw this up the same way the messed with the first star ocean game. Though the graphics did receive a boost and the voice overs were remastered, the battle system and the story haven't changed much. I am looking forward to to its release, but I don't like this preview. a good thing is a good thing. period.
Summary: Lunar is a very good game. Its an old school classic that is mostly overlooked in favour of other games such as Final Fantasy or Breath of Fire which were all released around the same time. If your looking for an RPG with a fairly interesting plot you should consider this one.
