    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible remake of an excellent game. The original Lufia II, for the SNES, which this game was based off of, was one of the best RPGs on that system. This remake, however, is horrendous. First off, it's not even an RPG anymore, it's a 2nd rate hack and slash. The fantastic score from the original game wasn't even touched up to make it sound better, in my opinion, hence the mediocre score. The controls are sloppy. The graphics aren't bad overall, but average is the best description. The stupid "mini games" that pop up are just a waste of time. But most importantly, the fantastic story is just completely missing from what I'd played. Again, another game Square Enix had to get it hands into to ruin. Go buy Lufia II for the SNES if you want a good game. Don't waste money on this.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Finally another good RPG This is a really great game. I started playing it hoping that it would be good and I was ecstatic that it was. The RPG genre in my opinion has been in a rut for a while now with just a bunch of disappointing games coming out. If you to feel this way too I suggest you get this game! It's the first RPG I have played in forever where I didn't just want to get it over with and beat it. There's good, interesting, and funny characters. An intriguing plot, though there are some repetitive things that happen later on. Solid game-play, it can get a little repetitive but it never gets boring though it's a tad on the easy side, with a good battle and character progression system. The graphics are amazing for a DS game, and the camera angles are not as bad as people claim they are. This game stands out from all the other c*appy DS RPGs because the developers did something different, they actually cared and tried to make a good game and it reflects in the finished product! If you like games like The World Ends With You, the only other good DS RPG, and the old Final Fantasys you'll love this game.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can be as hard or easy as you need = WONDERFUL!!!! Loved this game!!! You can increase your level by 5 as soon or as often(99 max) you need. It's also without ANY negative effect anywhere in the game. So it can be fun for every skill level, or even replay and try to challenge yourself alittle to a lot. Anything by Square Enix has never done me wrong. Same with this game. If you like action/RPG games that are not just turn based fighting then this is it. Same type of fighting setup as say the newer legend of Zelda DS games. Where you have your weapon in hand and walk right up to enemies and let them have it. :) Anyway I don't know what else good I can say about this game. Oh, it does make you use your brain to figure out quite a few tastefull puzzles along the way. It's the perfect balance of everything!!!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed, but... Thinking that it was a bit of an update on the original game, with an action approach, I bought this game, only to be disappointed in the lack of puzzles! I love the puzzles and everything of the original! I think the biggest disappointment for me was the Ancient Cave. All the rooms look the same, and you have to reach a certain floor before getting a choice of continuing the dungeon or returning to the surface. I haven't finished the game yet and not sure if I want to anymore. It is an interesting take on the game, I guess, and I did enjoy the action-ness of the rpg, but it does a number on your hand. o_o; But if you're new to the game, I would suggest giving it a try. A reminiscent of the Zelda games in a way.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from If you like the original, STAY AWAY There's a reason they changed the name on Lufia: Curse of the Sinistrals. It's nothing like the original game from which it's based. There are no group battles. No World Map. No Capsule Monsters. They added some Level + 5 if you die, so that if you're too lazy to level up on your own, you can cheat and get levels that way. You have to pick one character at a time to fight with. There are rhythm games. This is an immediate turn off for me. Especially when they block half the screen so you can't see what's coming to know what to press. I gave it to the Ruby Apple, hoping I might like it but no. I fell in love with the original game because of the story line and remember it for being so amazingly awesome with all the puzzle boxes (which are still there). I just...feel so betrayed. Once again they decided to forgo the amazing things for shiny graphics and voice. When will they learn that old school is better?
