O.K., it's not much, but here is a mini-review
of what I consider to be the weakest game in Nectaris series... Earth
Light: Luna Strike (Super Famicom, 1996, Hudson Soft) If you
are a fan of this game, please contact me and explain what you find
compelling & enjoyable... I am eager to see things from a different
perspective. For example, I evaluated Luna Strike as part of the
Nectaris series. In hindsight, I feel that perhaps this was an
unfair / misguided approach to evaluating Luna Strike, since it is
drastically different from its predecessor (1992's Earth Light) and
therefore shares little with the Nectaris series. I still don't
think it is a stellar game, but maybe there are aspects that I have
failed to appreciate.
Anyway, despite my disappointment with this game, I am sure I will sit down and
give it another chance when I get some free time (keep in mind that this
page was originally put up in Spring 2003 and I last updated it in Fall
2004 ... so I don't get much free time).
But who knows? Maybe I'll fall in love with Luna Strike and have a
full-fledged FAQ sooner than I anticipated.
REQUEST : If you can contribute to the LUNA STRIKE FAQ in
any way (i.e. providing a "how-to-play" guide, taking
screenshots, scanning magazine coverage, translating the cinema scenes,
etc.), please contact me.
Your contributions might inspire me to work on this neglected area of
