Lunar: Silver Star Story is a tale of a boy, who sets out on a journey to become not only a man, but the next in line of the most prestigious of titles: Dragonmaster to the Goddess Althena. This is also a story of a budding love, and how the two synergistically intertwine, though it won’t be apparent for quite a while.
You start the game as a lad named Alex, who is not very magically inclined but is good with a sword, along with his childhood friends Nall, which seems to be a talking cat and will actually aid you in battle should someone fall; Luna, a young woman whom was raised in Alex’s home; and Ramus, the son of the village chief.
This game has a lot of differences compared to its original Saturn release, including: a larger color palette, better sound quality, and graphics. It also has variations to the story, including additional characters not seen in the Saturn release, and a much longer period of time that Luna is an active party member, both expanding her story depth and making up for Alex’s no longer learning traditional magic.
The music in the game is very nice. It hardly ever sounds like its going to grate you, and fits the atmosphere throughout rather well. The sound effects do not seem out of place, and the voice acting is no cornier than some full-blown anime out there. (The game has animated cutscenes this time around as well)
There ARE times where it feels a little bit like a slog, as there are plenty of encounters in the game, but some CAN be avoided, as you have to make contact with monsters on the map in order to get into a fight, as opposed to random fights used in many other RPGs.
If you’re looking for a good time and can look past a bit of silliness at times, give this a shot.
