Sega CD Reviews

Lunar: The Silver Star

If ever there was a reason to buy a Sega CD, Lunar: The Silver Star was it. Although remade masterfully for the Playstation, the Sega CD version was a stunning RPG for its time and something that owners of the system could smirk about when their friends came over.
