I am not exaggerating when I say that this game has one of the best soundtracks in the entire Game Boy library. Some of the tracks like the ones for Marvin's Space Station and Taz's Zoo have a real "indie game song composer going way too hard on a game meant to be 8-bit" feel to them only they're actual songs on the actual hardware written for a licensed Looney Tunes game from 1998. This game even has an 8-bit rendition of Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2 and it kicks ass!

As for the actual game, it's alright. It's a decent little platformer and you can do far worse on this system. What's notable is that this game has a funny little quirk with the gameplay where Lola, with her ability to slowly descend in a game that does kill you if you fall from too far of a height, ends up being the way more useful character to use while Bugs Bunny - the most well-known Warner Bros character - just becomes that character you only switch back to in order to do situational puzzles.


A 3d action-RPG 'remake' of Lufia II, Lufia: Curse of the Sinistrals actually bore little resemblance to the original, feeling like a modern Square makeover complete with recycled names and plot - basically following in the footsteps of many other SE-published remakes. If the combat itself was rather plain (almost a sluggish version of Ys' combat post-VI), the dual-battle/puzzle functionality of Zelda 'tools' and their take on RPG progression, alongside diverse character playstyles saved it from becoming stale. It's also the most comedic Lufia game to date, adorned with fun minigames accompanying equally silly situations. However, when it isn't busy cracking jokes and mocking stereotypes along the way, the journey is diluted by brainless dialogue and mawkish scenes.

The biggest change lies in the dungeons and puzzles. While much simpler overall, the change to 3d granted platforming garnishes to the format and therefore found a slightly more creative edge. The boss fights may be obnoxious, and most design changes are questionable at best, but there's actually some enjoyment to be found beyond the strengths it attempts to emulate.


This game is really two games in one, and neither one is that great unless you were 10 years old in 1997 and just want to pretend this is a Dragon Ball Z game since there aren't any of those in the US until Blockbuster releases Dragon Ball GT Final Bout (which isn't any good either).


By far the best battle royale. The legends are all uneique and interesting. I like how the only way to play is with someone else (unless you somehow become alone in duos), Combat is good. Really don't have any cons, if you like battle royales and looking to try something different look no further to the best one in my opinion.
