YMMV / Lunar: Dragon Song

  • Scrappy Mechanic:
    • The fact that running drains health. Combine this with a painfully slow walking speed, and players are torn between getting bored moving slowly from point A to point B, or going there quickly but having lower HP.
    • Some enemies can break your equipment. Not fun.
    • You can't choose which enemy you attack. The game has each character's AI choose their target instead, taking much of the strategy out of the player's hands.
    • Combat and Virtue modes, which boils down to having to choose between getting XP from a fight or items, doubling the amount of grinding required.
  • Suspiciously Similar Song: Unlike all the other games in the series, the Dragon Song soundtrack has no input from composer Noriyuki Iwadare. However, many of the songs are basically well-executed variations on songs Iwadare wrote for prior Lunar games.
