    Bottom Line: A great game gets mired down in a lousy port job.

    Pros & Cons

    • Magic/skill trees are interesting
    • Good story

    Cons

    • A horrible port job

    Conclusion

    The best thing I can really say is that if you've got a Dreamcast, then by all means, buy this game. For the Dreamcast. Don't waste your time with the PC port when you can get something much better, unless you can't find the PC port and you have a 2 GHz gaming PC lying around. From what I hear, the Playstation 2 port didn't fare a whole lot better in the graphics department, so really, that's where your choices lie.

    To be honest, I'm quite disappointed. It makes me wonder if perhaps this is the reason why the Lunar PC port was canned by Working Designs (though that was a 2D game, but I digress). I have no qualms with Game Arts whatsoever, but I really wish they'd have farmed out the port to someone else more familiar with the platform. Better luck next time.
