A truly classic RPG that never got the recognition it deserved here in the States - mostly because of the commercial failure of the platform it was made for, the infamous SegaCD. Combining an anime-quality plot, memorable characters, a full orchestral soundtrack, and an English translation that - unlike, say, the Final Fantasies - doesn't take itself too seriously, Lunar is well worth the considerable effort it'll take to find a used copy.
