What Gamespot Users have to say about Lunar: Dragon Song

  • Rating:4

    Lunar: Dragon Song's extensive flaws far outweigh its charm.

    On the surface, Lunar: Dragon Song is a pretty down-the-middle console RPG in the style of its sixteen bit predecessors w/ a few interesting twists thrown in. The execution of all these elements, however, seems hastily d... Read Full Review

    Seriously?

    Lunar Dragon song, or Genesis as known here in the UK was the first title of this series released in the EU. I was excited, as the older games looked brilliant and was met with nothing but a wall of bad gameplay decision... Read Full Review

    Lunar:Dragon Song: One of the best RPGs of all time.

    This is an example of "Don't jugde a book by it's cover". I got it for christmas ecxpecting Bomberman DS, and got bummed. But once I started playing it, I got totally un-bummed. It's an amazing story expierience with cla... Read Full Review

    average but yet slightly-underated classic RPG.

    I got this game very cheap. I've read the bad reviews so I wasn't expecting much, but I was pleasantly suprised. Though this game is not anything special, I thought it was better then the consensus out there which make t... Read Full Review

    A Dissapointment to DS Games.

    I normally enjoy RPG games such as Kingdom Hearts, Legend of Zelda and things like that, but this was just a really bad game. You start off as a boy called Jian Campbell, a boy who works alongside a girl called Lucia.... Read Full Review

    This game was not at all any at all good. At all.

    All right, this game was just awful, utterly awful in all aspects. Following the example of the previous attempts at a gameboy advance Lunar, didn't even get close to being almost decent. Graphics:: All right, nobody ca... Read Full Review

    Lunar: DS was a disappointing mess, but still had a little bit of charm towards the end.

    Lunar: Dragon Song was the only reason I picked up my DS in the first place. I didn't read anything about the game prior to purchasing it, I wanted a free view and a new RPG. This was the first RPG for the DS, so I wen... Read Full Review

    It's a good game, but you may want to ask yourself how much you want it...

    Lunar: Dragon Song is a good game, has a nice story and is a pretty standard RPG. However, Dragon Song has some problems such as slow battles and depleting health when you need to run from that enemy mass you don't want... Read Full Review
