* OffModel: The character models change a lot and some of the animation is stodgy for the UsefulNotes/SegaSaturn and PS1 cutscenes, which is a heavy contrast to the models and animation seen in the Sega CD version (and to the much higher-quality remakes of [[VideoGame/LunarTheSilverStar the first Lunar game]] for that matter).

Yes, it's a CorruptChurch plot...that well-worn trope which drives the storyline of many a late 90s EasternRPG. But when ''Lunar 2'' debuted in 1995, the corrupt church plot was new to video gaming - in fact, ''Lunar 2'' may have even been the pioneer. Be that as it may, the fact that the game held up well enough for a remake is testament to ''Lunar 2''[='=]s other strengths - the fun characters, the entertaining, humor-laden writing, and the fantastic soundtrack. The remake, released in the twilight of the [=PS1=] era, is notable for: being the ''only'' remake of ''Lunar 2'', (unlike ''Lunar 1'' which developers can't seem to leave alone) and having a lot more in common with its Sega CD original than its counterpart, ''[[VideoGame/LunarTheSilverStar Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete]]'', does.

''Lunar 2'' takes place a thousand years after ''[[LunarTheSilverStar Lunar 1]]'', and centers on a teenaged [[AdventurerArchaeologist treasure hunter]] named Hiro, who is fascinated by the Lunar world's epic past (in short, the events of ''Lunar 1''). While exploring a ruin he meets Lucia, a MysteriousWaif with [[MysticalWaif vast magical powers]] who immediately announces that the world is "[[{{Foreshadowing}} in grave danger]]." As if to prove her point, the BigBad shows up and puts a curse on Lucia, {{depower}}ing her. In response, Hiro [[DulcineaEffect takes it upon himself]] to help Lucia carry out her mission to meet with the [[PhysicalGod Goddess Althena]], who can set the world to rights. The trouble is that [[CrystalDragonJesus Althena's far-reaching religious organization]] thinks that ''Lucia herself'' is the threat to the world, and attempts to stop them at every turn.

* {{Expy}}:A handful of characters appear to be simply re-tooled versions of characters from Lunar 1.

* [[FakeKing Fake Goddess]] The "Goddess Althena" is clearly not who she seems. [[spoiler: The ending of the remakes of the first game make clear why any presented Goddess would have to be fake; the original UsefulNotes/SegaCD game's ending did not.]]

** This game got the equivalent of an "E" rating at the time - it's hard to believe that it got away with it. The Plantella boss has full frontal-nudity.
