Similar to the critical reaction of the first game, praises were given to Lunar 2 for featuring an enormous amount of material appealing to players on a personal level, particularly likable characters with quests helped with their growth to maturity; in the case of two main characters, they develop a powerful romance. The dialogue is also well-received as even minor characters have rich amount of dialogues. There are several hand-animated full-motion video cutscenes, as well as a notable soundtrack, and after coming to the end of the initial game, an optional second adventure may serve as an epilogue.
The story takes place approximately one thousand years after the events of Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete. Once again, Lunar (an inhabited moon that circles a planet called The Blue Star) is endangered, this time by the return of Zophar, the God of Evil responsible for the destruction of life on the Blue Star millennia before. This causes Lucia, a being assigned the task of eventually reviving life on the Blue Star, to awaken before her time and set forth on a mission to once again eliminate Zophar’s influence.
The story then unfolds from the perspective of Hiro, a teenaged archaeologist who resides in the Salyan Desert with his grandparent and adolescent dragon companion Ruby (who, like Nall in the previous game, resembles a talking, winged cat). The game begins with Hiro and Ruby pilfering a Dragon’s Eye jewel from one of the several ancient ruins in their region. The escapade ends with Hiro inadvertently setting off a trap that forces them to flee from the ruins and ultimately prevents their return.
On the way back to the research outpost, Hiro and Ruby are stopped by a principle member of Althena’s Guards, the arrogant and boisterous White Knight Leo, who informs them that a ‘Destroyer’ is to appear at the ruins to the Northwest and that they should return to their homes immediately. Upon arriving at their home, the two find Leo attempting to extract information about the nearby ruins (referred to as ‘The Blue Spire’) from their grandfather Gwyn, an elderly archaeologist, in the hope of achieving access to the ruins’ impenetrable interior. Finding Gwyn of little use, Leo departs, leaving the three of them to ponder the arrival of the so-called ‘Destroyer’. When Hiro climbs to the roof to survey the status of their surroundings, he witnesses a mysterious light emanating from the Blue Spire. He informs his grandfather of the strange phenomenon, and the three of them decide to investigate the ruins for themselves.
