Lufia: The Ruins of Lore review

by pokemonismylife Aug 25, 2010

I got this game seven years ago, played a bit, got bored, and set it down. Last year, I picked it up again, and played the game non-stop until I beat the thing, it was that fun. This game is a slow starter yes, but gets so horribly fun and hard to put down after the first couple of explorations. The game takes place ten years after "Rise of the Sinistrals", and the military empire Gratze is taking over the world. The games protagonist is a boy named Eldin. Eldin and his friend Torma are striving to become hunters(people who explore the wold and look for treasures) and get their licenses. Along the way, they meet a girl who sparks an adventure to stop Gratze and their evil leader, Ragule.

  CheatsGuru rating and opinion
9Story line
Mostly Explained above. You slowly get more characters along the way. Not really much else to say in this section.
The visuals in this game are set in a birds eye view style and is pretty colerful. The Battle designs are better but not by much. The above world graphics are cartoonic. Thankfully they make no attempts to make it 3-D except in the battles, which kind of works. I'd give it a...
The music in this game is pretty exceptional, and the sound effects are quite good too. But they tend to be a bit pitchy.
The play of the game itself is difficult at first but really picks up once you get the hang of it. Most of this cetagory is hard to explain. But it is over all simple. fight monsters get to town. NEW WEAPONS/ITEMS. Level up.
10Lasting Appeal
The most addicting part of this game are The Ancient Cave and the Jobs. The Cave has 60 floors, and every item and weapon you can get, getting more valuable/powerful the farther down you go. The jobs are what gets you skills and magic. And even affect your stats. There are 11 jobs in all.
(Out of 10)
