WorthPlaying: Lunar: Silver Star Harmony Review

WorthPlaying writes: "Created by Game Arts and released stateside by publisher Working Designs, Lunar: The Silver Star on the Sega CD was a role-playing game that made a small splash with budding RPG fans, enough so that the sequel, Eternal Blue, also made an appearance. While the Sega CD versions definitely have their own set of fans, I think most people became aware of the series once the PlayStation ports were made in the late 1990s, with Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete being a remake of the original Sega CD title, and a port from the Sega Saturn version that was only released in Japan. Silver Star Story Complete was a huge step up from the limitations on Sega CD, this time featuring an expanded use of animated cut scenes (50 minutes compared to the 10 minutes from the previous version), a fleshed-out story, combat, and other features that just didn't make the cut in the original. Game Arts was once again behind the production of this title, with publisher Working Designs, headed by Victor Ireland, in charge of translation and bringing the game to the U.S." (Lunar: Harmony of Silver Star, Lunar: Silver Star Harmony, Lunar: Silver Star of Harmony, PSP) 8.5/10
