    Good gameplay, but the terrible storyline really hurts me

    Lufia 2 rise the sinistral is the epitome of the mediocrity, no matter what's the legion of fanboy snes rpg tell you. It's avarage. The puzzle-oriented dungeon design is the strong point of the game. The positive ... Read Full Review

    A great sequel to a great game. It offers whatever and early RPG player wants. Even if some levels look unfinished.

    This is great game for any SNES RPG player. It has a great battling system and good graphics for it's time period. It is challenging but not impossible to beat. It comes packed with alot of hidden items for you to fin... Read Full Review

    The best 16-bit JRPG.

    The general consensus is that Final Fantasy VI or Chrono Trigger is the best 16-bit JRPG, I say that's not so. Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals is actually a prequel to the first game, but is much improved in all areas.... Read Full Review

    One of my personal favorites

    This is one of my favorite games of all time. The combat is so open ended and the puzzles make it worth the challenge. You can even get pets i mean come on what else do you need. The only thing lacking is the story it... Read Full Review

    A decent RPG.

    The graphics aren't anything special. They're about average, but the gameplay and story make this game good. The story takes place 100 years before Lufia I. A man, Maxim, must fight the Sinistrals to save the world. On t... Read Full Review

    A new power is rising. Stand for the common good.

    A great shadow has been shrouded on the human world, yet know one knows the reason of it. Something strange is floating in the sky, maybe the answer is there? It is. Lufia 2's story is actually the prequel to the firs... Read Full Review

    Fulfilling, but wholly depressing.

    An interesting story of a hero and his quest to save the world from the four elements of evil. For an SNES game, the storyline, sound, and graphics were superb. But I still would not go quite as far as calling it bette... Read Full Review
