the legend returns was a pisspoor game and Ruins of lore I never played since it's just a spinoff and has little to nothing to do with the original lufia series.

Something tells me Volt has a grudge against spin-offs.

Also, they both suck to an extent (compared to competition at the time). But TLR deserves benefit of the doubt. RoL's the franchise's murderer.

Maybe the question should be "which one youd rather play" then "which is better"

" But TLR deserves benefit of the doubt"


to be very honest, I could get past the repetativeness and the horrible grammar in that game. It's just that after you fight Amon the story goes horribly downhill. So I'd say the first half of the game is still pretty good, but the second half, minus the ending, completely rapes and murders it.

I'd have to say Ruins of Lore. True, Ruins of Lore has some bad things about it (horrible Ancient Cave mechanics, horrible IP system, spinoff plotline), but The Legend Returns is highly repetitive, and though somewhat enjoyable, the gameplay gets annoying after a while. And the plot twist is the only thing good about the plot.

At least the Ruins of Lore feels a lot more like Lufia 2 in gameplay. And there's some features I thought were kinda interesting (monster capturing and upgrading), though obviously some things fell flat.

Really, the series died not because of Ruins of Lore. Its because Lufia II was the last good Lufia game, out of four in the series. The Legend Returns really doesn't do much for the series at all, especially due to the console it was on. If the Playstation game was kept, I'm sure the series would've fared off much better.

And yes, I'm lurking again. Just seeing if there happens to be any news. Looks like there's not. Meh, I'll probably just have to write a fanfiction rather than hope for a new Lufia game. But I can dream, can't I?

I could prefer a better smelling turd over the other, but a turd will always be a turd polished or not.

I'll let you translate that statement.

Even if a monkey wears a golden ring,
it still is an ugly thing.

I must say, for a saying translated literally from Dutch, it could've sounded worse.
