Lunar: Eternal Blue is a role-playing video game developed by Game Arts and Studio Alex for the Sega CD as the sequel to Lunar: The Silver Star. The game was originally released in December 1994 in Japan, and later in North America in September 1995 by Working Designs.
Set one thousand years after the events of The Silver Star, the game follows the adventure of Hiro, a young explorer and adventurer who meets Lucia, visitor from the far-away Blue Star, becoming entangled in her mission to stop Zophar, an evil, all-powerful being, from destroying the world. During their journey across the world of Lunar, Hiro and Lucia are joined by an ever-expanding cast of supporting characters. Eternal Blue was remade in 1998 as Lunar 2: Eternal Blue Complete on the PlayStation. For this review I will be playing the Lunar 2: Eternal Blue Complete remake.
Lunar 2: Eternal Blue Complete is one of my favorite games on the PlayStation.
The graphics are dated feeling because this game was origanaly released on the Sega CD, but the added cutsceens are absolute eye candy, looking like they are comming out of a modern anime show.
The sound track is wonderful and really sets the mood as the game progresses.
The story is what really caries Lunar 2: Eternal Blue Complete. It is a well told tale that really makes you fall in love with the characters, which have their own personality based on great backstories.
This is a must play game in my collection and I encourage everyone to break out their consoles or emulators and give Lunar 2: Eternal Blue Complete a try.
