Famed game producer Hironobu Sakaguchi of Mistwalker and developer Artoon present the highly anticipated Xbox 360 exclusive Blue Dragon. Featuring the character design of Akira Toriyama of Dragon Ball Z and music by Nobuo Uematsu of Final Fantasy, Blue Dragon is an epic role-playing game that centers on a young boy named Shu and several of his friends.

These unlikely heroes possess the power to control phantom shadows that mirror the actions of their masters, giving Shu and his comrades miraculous strength and magical powers. The warriors can create and develop their combat styles by utilizing different types of Shadow Change, including Sword, Assassin, and Power Magic. Shu and his friends must use the shadows as weapons and wield their skills to save their world from impending doom.

Encountering various people on a planet where numerous ancient ruins remain, the characters and their shadows travel through a world full of mysteries and illusions, where the slightest touch can cause reactions of unparalleled magnitude.

Great game

Pros: Very customizable character "classes" and skills allow you to make many different kinds of parties to suit your style. Very addictive leveling system, where not only does your character level but his class (which you can change at any time) levels separately. Lots of fun to play with this to get the best combination of stats at a given point in the game. Graphics are beautiful. Lots of things to search and lots of play time (game is 3 DVDs). This is probably one of the least repetitive turn-based RPGs I've played due to the ability to change up the character classes. Maybe less repetitive than Chrono Trigger (gasp)!

Cons: The boss-battle music, which thankfully is somewhat infrequent, is really bad. The first time I heard it I laughed out loud, after that, I rolled my eyes, and now I want to end my life a little bit more each time I hear it. It's really really cheesy faux-80s glam rock, and I think one of the game's programmers did the vocals. Also, the dialogue is a little Engrish, and can get tedious, but you can skip cutscenes with the start button. And as someone previously observed, Marumoru = Jar Jar Binks.

Other Thoughts: If you buy this game for under thirty or so bucks, it's worth it. I paid much less, and so I am very satisfied and pleasantly surprised. And I'm picky about RPGs.

Decent game, needs polish

Pros: Pretty fun game. Inexpensive, making it a good value. Beautiful graphics. Feels a bit like an early Final Fantasy game. Some of the concepts are intriguing, like the way magic and technology work.

I liked the way combat is initiated. Unlike older FF-style games, instead of combat being entirely random, you see enemy sprites on the screen instead. This gives you the opportunity - if you use it right - to enter combat on your terms, or avoid it entirely. Of course, if you're not careful, the enemies may take advantage of the situation and surprise attack you instead.

Cons: As noted in other reviews, this game seems to have a much younger target audience. The chibi style art can be a distraction - it makes these supposedly late-teen characters look way too young for their age - almost like babies. The art style does look good, though.

The story is highly linear and somewhat simplistic. You don't get the deep character development you might get from games like FF6 and FF7. The villain is pretty much unidimensional - hardly any exploration of his motives is made at all.

The voice acting is mostly decent. But seriously, the sound engineers need to learn how to use reverb, flangers, and vocoders if they plan to have robot characters in their games. Robots should sound synthetic, not natural, even with advanced technology.

I have three words for the Marumaro character: Jar Jar Binks. Yeah: annoying.

As with most FF-style RPG's, money becomes entirely moot about half way through. You get too much of it, and there really isn't much to spend i

Other Thoughts: I gave this game a 3/5. That's a neither great nor terrible. It had its good points, and its annoyances. All in all, I think I would have preferred to spend a few extra bucks and get a game published by Square/Enix.

Great RPG for the price

Pros: If you are into RPG's this is a pretty solid one. A little childish, but fun.

Cons: I don't think anyone can complain about this for the price.

4/ 5

Pros: I want to clarify that I am in no means an RPG fan in anyway. I rented this game (free rental) at blockbuster a year ago or so and played for a bit. Stuck with me enough to actually buy it almost a year later so I can finish.

+ Graphics / Art style (very friendly and visually pleasing)
+ Story (from what I've seen so far, its pretty decent)
+ Long game play (don't know how i'll feel at hour 50, but at least it has 50 hrs to offer, vs the recent flood of games you can beat in 6 to 10 hrs)

Cons: Not far enough in game to tell.

Classical JRPG Game

Pros: Great graphics, fun atmosphere. Interesting world and powers. Turn-based, which is a plus for me. Others might find it a minus. Characters are a bit stock, but they're fun, and interesting and that's what counts.

Cons: Saving's a pain. Doesn't say how, so you basically have to figure out you can only save near those floating sphere things. Voice acting is a bit off at times.

Other Thoughts: Definitely worth its cheap price. :)

Great turn-based story-driven action!

Pros: Excellent story telling coupled with a good turn-based combat system make Blue Dragon an excellent diversion. The grapics are very well done and blend seamlessly with the FMV that moves the story along. I like the way the difficulty slowly ramps up (download a new patch on xbox live before playing to get the difficult mode) as you learn to navigate the combat system and get the feel for the adventure to come. I was happily surprised at the quality of this game and how much I enjoyed it.

Cons: The Anime style artwork may displease some. There is a repetitive formula at work: story/battle/new area/story, but this is not that much of a negative if you enjoy turn-based RPGs.

Other Thoughts: This is a great value at the current reduced price.
