    Really loved the original Blue Dragon and the Mistwalker company, but it pains me to play Blue Dragon Plus. You won't find the same fluid storytelling, great character depth, or fun battle specs. Instead, you get a "real-time 'strategy' rpg" that isn't strategic at all- no more complex than auto-battle with occasional whack-a-mole contributions. The very unimpressive AI decides more about your units' behavior than your commands do, whether it's attacking, moving, or even trying to stand still. You'll quickly find there's simply no environment on which to employ strategy. Outside of battle, each character has several stats and equipment, but as complex as it looks, none of it matters more than how the AI dictates your units on the field. The game has some nice graphics, but a disappointing lack of new music- nearly an entire port of the original Blue Dragon soundtrack, which sometimes is placed strangely throughout the game. Sadly, it's best to pretend this title, perhaps even this flavor of the genre, never happened Full Review »

    UGH. I hate it when a developer takes a really good concept like Blue Dragon, gives it really high production values, and then just kills it (I'm looking at you, Sonic.). Anyway, this is the sequel to a really good Xbox 360 game that's story is good, but if you didn't play the first game, you'll be totally lost. Why didn't Ignition just make another just like it? Anyway, this is an RTS, so i'll grade it like that. The game constantly becomes a muddled mess with no control on each individual character, the story is boring and uninteresting much unlike the original, and aiming certain attacks is a pain in the butt. There may be some CG sequences that are pretty, but when to shine a turd, all you get is a shiny piece of poop, which pretty much is Blue Dragon Plus. Full Review »
