"The Best RPG for the Gameboy Advance"
This game deserves to be called ''greatest Gameboy Advance game. It is a 2D role playing game and the graphics are the best I've ever seen on the Gameboy Advance. Well enough of what I think of the game! On with the review
The game is 2D and I really enjoy 2D games, and for a 2D game the graphics are amazing, both on and off battle show nice looking movement for little animation sprites, The graphics are very similar to Golden Sun ( Personally I think these are way better). If you like games with 2D graphics and nice looking characters this is the one.
Sound really does not bother me in a game but it did with Lunar Legend. The reason is that when you are in battle and your character does a magic spell it sounds like something fried in the sound card. Or it could be my Gameboy Advance I don't know. But it deserves a 7/10
This is where the game is kind of false looking. Whenever your character runs it is way to fast! I mean FAST! This can get annoying and frustrating when you come across holes and you can't slow down, then you fall to through the hole!
Another bad thing is when your character enters a building the screen turns pitch white and your in the building. The battle gameplay is the best part of the game each character has a certain role: Attacker, Healer, Magic user, And magic supporter. Just like Golden Sun. The gameplay is very easy to get used to. I just hope that if they make another Lunar game for Gameboy Advance it is a lot better than this.
This is the best part about this game! The story is very good. It's full of plot twists and VERY SURPRISING PLOT TWISTS! I guessed a couple of plot twists. If you know lots about RPG'S then the plots are easy to guess. Especially the characters, you can tell just by looking at them that something is going to change. I will stop there because I don't want to ruin anything for people who tend on playing the game.
Although the sound and gameplay is a little annoying and frustrating Lunar Legend is in my opinion the best RPG for the Gameboy Advance. Although Golden Sun is supposed to be the best RPG for the Gameboy Advance I thing Lunar Legend is way better, both story wise and graphic wise. If you are a die hard RPG gamer this is a must play.
