Lunar Silver Star Harmony 

 

There are two types of role playing gamers - those that have played Lunar video games, and those that have not played them. Hardcore RPG fans will recount their hours playing Lunar Silver Star Harmony. This reviewer has played this game on the Sega CD, Playstation, and now Playstation Portable. In a lot of ways this version is one of the best ones out there. Concerned parents need to understand that this hand held game earns its 'T' for Teen rating, and that should be obeyed.

Visually Lunar Silver Star Harmony is stunning. The attention to detail, and graphical style are spectacular. The characters look great, and this game is very colorful. With that said there are also some issues with the graphics. As the ESRB descriptors denote there is partial nudity, and violent images. Not much else the RPG Master can say about that. The loading screens are very vibrant as well. The animation in the movie scenes is as good as the original.

The music in Lunar Silver Star Harmony is awe inspiring. The special effect sounds in battles work masterfully. There are little things in this game like sounds for various enemies on the battle screen that show an amazing attention to detail. There are some language issues in Lunar Silver Star Harmony, and some of the jokes are not very appropriate. Lunar was the first video game the RPG Master played that had a good guy turn bad.

There are various hidden items, armors, and weapons in Lunar Silver Star Harmony. Certain quests are not required but will grant the player additional experience. Not all of these items, armors, and weapons are worth the effort though. Characters learn magical spells while they level up. Fans of the franchise will find enough has been freshened up. If you have never played this franchise, then you may or may not get into Lunar Silver Star Harmony. Certain aspects of this game are different from current role playing games.

The loading times in Lunar Silver Star Harmony put this reviewer to sleep. They can be lengthy, and come too often. That is one major issue the RPG Master has with Lunar Silver Star Harmony. The game play stays true to the roots of the game. It is turn based, however characters walk around on the screen. So certain characters can only walk to far. Strategy is needed to decide which enemies need to be attacked. Players will fight thousands of times, and have to repeat fights with many of the same monsters to be strong enough for the bosses. This will not appeal to everyone. Getting to save anywhere will appeal to everyone.

A goddess gives up her power, and becomes a human. An ex-hero decides to turn her into a dark goddess, and get the power for himself. A young man wants to become a Dragonmaster. There are some definite religious, and moral issues dealt with in this game. The story in Lunar Silver Star Harmony is engaging and draws most role playing gamers in. The RPG Master wonders if XSeed Games will be bringing the sequel to the PSP in the near future.
