Lunar: Silver Star Harmony (PSP)

 

Epic struggles involving dragons, wizards, demons, and warriors never really get old, do they? The first entry in the Lunar series--a game that blended all of the aforementioned elements deliciously--has seen a lot of love during the past few decades....

Lunar: Silver Star Harmony Review

 

18 years after the original, the third remake of Lunar: Silver Star is released on the PSP. Lunar: Silver Star Harmony will introduce a new generation of gamers to the story of Alex and Luna.

Replay value is present through handicap runs and other similar things you can do to play RPG's differently. It is too bad that you have to resort to such in Lunar to get a consistent challenge, but there it is.

Something here feels very familiar. A small-town boy with the potential to be great. A girl with the power of magic, but not the power to confess her eternal love....

Beautiful soundtrack ; Charming characters and dialogue ; Great new animation

Repetitive combat ; Painful load times ; Could’ve, with a little more effort, been the definitive Lunar

A small-town boy with the potential to be great. A girl with the power of magic, but not the power to confess her eternal love. A fat, money-hungry friend who runs away at any sign of danger.

It's horrible to say that and I wished I didn't have to. Above all else, it's still Lunar, one of the greatest RPGs of all time. But a developer cannot solely depend on the faded, wispy emotions of nostalgia to sell a game. If you're going to...

Alex, oh, Alex, where are yoooou?

The new presentation is just brilliant; Added scenes; Great ending; Extras for playing demo

the sound effects, however, are not; Extremely easy battles

Lunar: Silver Star Harmony

 

Lunar; Silver Star Harmony is an updated version of the original Sega CD RPG developed by Game Arts. The first version of the game originally on the Sega CD, but it was later released for the Saturn, PlayStation, and even had a version for the Game Boy...

Turn based gameplay holds up well and is a blast to play; memorable cast of characters and world to explore; incredible music; updated art style fits the PSP perfectly

Some dungeons are unnecessarily long and tedious; incredibly long loading times; awful voice acting

Expert review by:

Lunar: Silver Star Harmony Sony PSP Review

 

The game is available both digitally through the PlayStation Network and as a special edition package at retail, including "bromide" collector cards and a CD soundtrack. We suggest going the retail route, because this soundtrack will blow you away.

The art style and soundtrack are the best in the Lunar series, the story will keep you intrigued, new scenes help answer questions

Battle system shows its age, no multiplayer connectivity

Although the Sega CD doesn't have many first-rate titles (damn you, Slam City With Scottie Pippen), the Lunar games stand out. Working Designs took good care of this franchise with two releases on the console, with a humorous writing style, engaging...

Lunar is the videogame equivalent of a summer vacation. It's free of complication, full of careless fun, over before you know it, and easily lends itself to nostalgia. Trading up in the presentation department and considerably down in gameplay, Silver...

Yay, another Lunar remake!? Let's call this one… Silver Star Story Silver Star Story Complete Lunar Legend Silver Star Harmony

Not the definitive Lunar update, but the timelessness of the gameplay, story, and music wrapped up in a shiny new package make it easy to see why Lunar is widely regarded as one of the greatest RPG's of all time.

Expert review by:

Lunar: Silver Star Harmony

 

Lunar is an RPG with a very rich history. Not only has it appeared on many videogame systems, but it has been remade many times and has become for Game Arts what the original Ys is for Falcom. For those with little knowledge of the game or the series,...

If you've never played Lunar before and you own a PSP, this is your chance to play a classic. Unless you absolutely despise old-school traditional Japanese RPGs and were turned off by everything I said in this review, then you owe it to yourself to...
