  • Summary: I say the closest thing to playing A Tear of Vermilion was Game Arts' incredible Lunar series (the first two games really, the Silver Star Story and Lunar Eternal Blue)....this game is a wonderful attempt to emulate that series' great storytelling and even-handed turn-based gameplay....does Legend of Heroes: Tear of Vermilion succeed in that regard?

  • Summary: Another great series from the creators of Ys. The only thing that stops me from giving this a 5 is Bandai Namco's TERRIBLE localization. Aside from that, it's still a pretty fun game.
