You know what I really, really don't like as a game? It's Lufia II. And it's not the fault of the game at all.

This fine RPG has all of the elements that I don't really like, crafted into one game.

Funnily enough, I really like Lufia I and "Ruins of Lore" on the GBA. But I never, ever could fairly rate part II.

So Dennis composed a nice article about the game over on Videospielgeschichten in German, and I asked him if I could translate the text and put it into the rpg-o-mania review format.

And so here it is: Our official Lufia II review! It's fair and nicely written, but I also added a commentary with my personal feelings and a bit of reasoning behind that.

The demo is out, the release is near, and we have another set of new Final Fantasy VII rebirth artworks available in our gallery.

As you may know from the last news entries about this topic, I'm not completely sold on the idea of Final Fantasy VII R. I mean, it's seemingly just built to live on the memories of old fans, without making sure that it itself has a consistent, logical storyline.

But as I talked with some friends, they brought up the thought that there were many ideas in the original that were just thrown in because it was cool - let's take Cait Sith for instance, who wasn't really fleshed out.

If you tried to flesh out all the characters and good ideas, you have to rework the story - and that is what the new team does.

Let's see how the fanbase reacts to Rebirth and how a final part of this series will look like. I'm pretty curious about it :)

Today I finally released the review of Harvestella. It took one and a half year to be finished, mainly because I paused the game for some time.

The first big period of time when I didn't play the game was after I've caught a nasty virus and just didn't get back into the game.

The second time was when I was kind of dulled by aspects of the game.

Yet, I always came back. And you can find out details in the review!

Square Enix is boosting up their marketing campaign for the upcoming release of Final Fantasy VII rebirth. It's planned to be released on February 29th, 2004. Which is funny, when will they celebrate "one year of Rebirth" in 2025. On Feb 28th or March 1st? We will see :)

Along with that, they also released new artwork for Cait Sith, Elena and two key artworks. I added them all to our Final Fantasy VII rebirth gallery!
