    Default Who liked the "Lunar" Series?

    Nothing beats "Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete", and "Lunar: Eternal Blue" came damn close.

    The pop Culture References were classic! And the Humour was SO FUNNY! I would play them until I was falling asleep at three in the Morning I loved them so much. I loved the Characters (except Nash; I hated him), I loved the Monsters, I loved the Bosses, the Storylines were so much better than the "Final Fantasy" Games, the Voice Actors were wonderful, the Jokes were great, the Avatars were cute, the animated Sequences were phenomenally entertaining, the Plot and Storyline kept me rigged with Excitement, and I could not get over the Dynamics of the Characters and how alive they were. Nothing beats "Lunar."

    I never played the others. Were they good?

    Silver Star for Sega CD is the first real JRPG I ever beat. Not counting Action RPG's. Its one of the reasons why owning a Sega CD really isn't a waste of money and shows it has more than just the grainy FMV stuff anyone ever talks about. I really do like the series but Dragon Song for the DS is crap. I doubt you'll see another once since the creator apparently left GameArts a while ago.

    I don't mind the humor and pop culture references either. A lot of people complain about them because they supposedly weren't in original Japanese version.

    If you liked Lunar 1 & 2 I'd say to check out some of Falcom's games like Ys, Legend of Heroes, Dragon Slayer (For TurboGrafx CD) because that's apparently where the Lunar creator started out at and Lunar does have a bit of a Falcom look to it. They may not have all of the humor and pop culture but that has more to do with who translated them. A lot of the Ys games actually came out here. If you own a PSP check out the newer releases. Or even if you use Steam because the remakes of Ys 1, 2, and 3 are there as well as Origins.

    Falcom is one of the few Japanese devs that focuses on the PC and doesn't do hentai games. As well as they choose underdog handhelds like the PSP and Vita... The remake of Ys IV comes out this year in English courtesy of Xseed/Marvelous-USA.


    If your reasoning for liking Lunar lies more in the humor of the English Translations then I'd check out things like Cosmic Fantasy 2, Exile 1 &2 (Exile Wicked Phenomenom/Exile 2 is one of those games Working Desings butchered the difficulty in though) for the Turbo CD, Popful Mail and Vay for the Sega CD and Growlanser Generations for the PS2.

    Working Designs did also pick up some more interesting titles for US release like Elemental Gearbolt, Silhoutte Mirage (WD also butchered the difficulty in this) and Alundra for PS1, as well as a bunch of Sega of Japan games that Sega of America neglected to bring over like Magic Knight Rayearth, Dragon Force, Shining Wisdom as well as Albert Odyssey from Sunsoft for the Saturn.
