Lunar – Silver Star Story, (SLPS-01397-8)
(SLPS-91129-30) (Playstation the Best)
Lunar: Silver Star Story was originally released on the Sega CD. In its time, it was one of the most cherished role-playing games and reaped in massive critical acclaim from reviewers and players alike. Due to space limitations, Working Designs were forced to restrain some things they wanted in the game. Because it is the company’s favorite game, they decided to release Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete on the PlayStation — an uncut version. It is said that this is the way they had always envisioned it.
The story focuses around Alex and his true love Luna. Alex has always dreamed of becoming a dragonmaster and follow in the footsteps of his hero Dyne. A dragonmaster is one who visits all the dragons of the land and passes their trials. Only the strong of heart and will can pass the tests and to become one spawns tales of folklore and legend throughout the world.
One day, Alex and Luna’s friend Ramus decided to visit the White Dragon Cave in an attempt to get a Dragon Crystal, a very expensive and coveted rock. Unbeknownst to them, this is where their adventure begins. Their trip will take them all around the globe and they will interact with things and people they never believed existed. They soon find out that the prophecy tells of a new dragonmaster, one with green eyes — just like Alex.
That same prophecy also includes very bad things. Someone called the Magic Emperor is predicted to step forth from the Frontier and destroy the Magic Guild. His ultimate goal is to rule the world and have his minions take over. In order to do this, he must search out the one singer whose song is magical. Once he finds her, he will reveal his true identity.
Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete is a traditional role-playing game that features hand-drawn backgrounds and sprite based characters. As you progress throughout, you will meet up with adventurers and travelers — people who want to either join your party or destroy you. Your party constantly changes because of the plot development, and some will leave and come back at a later time.
Your journey will lead you into a wide assortment of towns and towers, forests and caves. In towns, you’ll have to interact with its inhabitants to better understand the story as well as learn valuable clues. You can also buy items, weapons and armor for your party members. You’ll need plenty of silver though, and you can get that from fighting enemies in dungeons. Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete uses a traditional turn-based fighting engine. The more enemies you kill, the higher your experience becomes which awards you with more spell and magic power.
There is over an hour of anime-based movie sequences that propel the story in key moments, a hardback 120 page manual that documents production and gameplay, four CDs (two of which are the game) featuring the complete soundtrack and a “making of” movie, and a cloth map of the world.
Return to the world of LUNAR, in the completely reworked 32-bit version of the RPG classic. Journey back to a place where dragons yet live, and magic is valued above all else. Join Alex, the young adventurer, as he begins a quest with his friends to save their land from the crushing advance of the Magic Emperor. Explore dungeons, fight terrifying monsters, and gather information from the locals as you advance toward the explosive confrontation with the magic Emperor himself! Get ready for the ride of your life!
