Lufia: Curse of the Sinistrals

 

Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals is a game I look back on fondly. It's kind of like one of your early crushes; you can't remember why or what attracted you to the person, you just remember that you liked them. That's exactly how Lufia II is for me....

Lufia: Curse of the Sinistrals may fall short in a few areas, but it more than makes up for it in its dynamic gameplay. For a reimagining of a classic, this game sure does get it right; it does just enough new while preserving just enough of what...

Equal, but not the same

 

If you're not a hardcore fan of lufia (like me), you'll really enjoy the game. But if you are one, then, it might disappoint.

Graphics are great. Soundtrack is enjoyable. Gameplay is compelling

Fans may be disappointed as it's not at all like the classic. But that doesn't mean it's a bad game of course

Lufia: Curse of the Sinistrals- NDS

 

While established fans of the old Lufia franchise might've liked it just fine if Curse of the Sinistrals just gave their SNES favorite a new coat of paint, the shift to an action interface opens up the brand for an all-new audience. This is a great DS...

Bottom line: If you've got a DS and $30 to spare, get Lufia: Curse of the Sinistrals. This is a charming, beautiful, and accessible title that dares to be different while paying homage to the original. It will make a fine addition to the collections of...
