Game Review


USA USA Version

Posted by Corbie Dillard

Lufia II might not be as recognizable as some of the bigger name Super Nintendo RPGs, but that doesn't mean it packs any less of a punch.

If it's one thing the Super Nintendo System had a lot of, it was RPGs. Some were good, some were bad, and some were outstanding. Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals would fall into the latter category. Not only does it offer an amazing turn-based combat...

It's not really one of my favourite RPGs, but I'll always remember it for being one of the only "big" games to get an official Dutch translation (And a good one too!), plus of course the music.

This is my third favorite RPG of all time. On my Top 100 list I made a few years back, it was actually #2.

wish this one would be on VC
i loved this game to the end
if it ever makes it to VC i will get it as soon as possible
i had it with dutch translation, but i like it as much as english
those 2 stupid thiefs were most funny
and i loved to train those capsule monsters, an extra ally

EDIT: it says released, what does this site mean with that?
i mean, i had it here, and was in stores, and was european version, even a dutch one (lol)

oh made mistake in my last post:

"it says released, what does this site mean with that?
i mean, i had it here, and was in stores, and was european version, even a dutch one (lol)"

*released must be "unreleased"

it was here, so must be mistake, i think

It is so sad this game had too many releases. I mean great and all but the art in the newer releases are terrible.
