Lunar: Dragon Song Overview
Lunar: Dragon Song is a traditional turn based role playing game that was released for the Nintendo DS in late 2005. The game implements a simple turn based combat system which is identical to other games such as the early Final Fantasy titles. The story is very well done and the characters are charming, but the controls out of combat which the player uses to travel the game world are very poorly designed. If you are a big fan of the Lunar series this game could be worth playing but for everything else the controls are simply unusable.
