    This game is by no means perfect, but if you like the RPG genre and have a 360 it would be a shame for you not to own this game. Richard E doesn't seem to know what he is talking about so take his review with a grain of salt. Also I can say that this game was not made for small children as it is rated T for Teen. For those who do not know that means 13 and up basically a PG-13 This game is by no means perfect, but if you like the RPG genre and have a 360 it would be a shame for you not to own this game.

    A classic RPG in the style of the major Final Fantasies, albeit with a dramatically toned-down-for-children story with equally childlike characters and scenarios. The environments and music are bland but the leveling and battle systems are satisfying (if a little stale).

    I think EuroGamer summed this up the best. The game isn't terrible, but it can't really compare to some of the other RPGs being released. It doesn't compare to the work that the developers had done in earlier games... needless to say it was a let down. X360 doesn't need this, they needed a Final Fantasy 13 killer.

    Bland story that doesnt develop until late in the game. In the meantime listen to some of the most annoying characters ever seen in a video game. "I wont give up", lame the first time you hear it...painful the 20th. Marumaro is the Jar-Jar Binks of video games. From a gameplay point of view I love it. Big fans of turn-based JRPG's will enjoy it. Game would be a solid 9 if not for the Bland story that doesnt develop until late in the game.

    a pretty decent RPG that feels alot and looks alot like dragon ball z . probubly because the guy who wrote it did DBZ as well . the voice acting is kind of pitaful . the story is ok nothing much special but its just intresting enough to keep you moving along . the graphics are ok nothing special . the combat with the shadows is kind of neat . the game is fairly long around 40 hours or so .a pretty decent RPG that feels alot and looks alot like dragon ball z . probubly because the guy who wrote it did DBZ as well . the voice acting is kind of pitaful . the story is ok nothing much special but its just intresting enough to keep you moving along . the graphics are ok nothing special . the combat with the shadows is kind of neat . the game is fairly long around 40 hours or so . theres some extra stuff to do at the end if you want to put another 50+ hours of leveling to kill some hardcore bosses. over all its worth playing if you like JRPG's just nothing very special.

    i may not be a major rpg fan, but i have to admit, the game isn't as good as final fantasy 3 or chrono trigger on the super nintendo, but it is still pretty damn good

    Blue Dragon came to supply the lack of good JRPG in Xbox 360 and fully this purpose. But, afterall, it's not a really excellent game. The history is just "okay". There is none great surprises till the very end of the game, but when you are there, the game ends abruptly. This happened because the developers had planned sequels, so the good things was left to the next one. This is veryBlue Dragon came to supply the lack of good JRPG in Xbox 360 and fully this purpose.

This happened because the developers had planned sequels, so the good things was left to the next one. This is very disapointing. The battle system is good, and very funny too, as the character development. They have charisma and its enough to a reasoable game. Worthy to play, but dont wait so much. Expand

  1. Blue Dragon finds the perfect balance between linearity and excessive freedom - it doesn't embarrass you by holding your hand, and yet it doesn't just leave you alone crying in the supermarket. Hironobu Sakaguchi (the FF creator and Blue Dragon mastermind) is as good a parent as Shigeru Miyamoto.
  2. Where so many RPGs deliver dry experiences that adhere too closely to traditional type, Mistwalker delivers an RPG that pushes the genre in all the right directions. With supreme technical qualities and gameplay to match, it’s little wonder that Blue Dragon has revived the 360 in Japan. [JPN Import]
  3. Blue Dragon's light-hearted charm and role-playing goodness fills a lacking aspect of the Xbox 360's lineup. [JPN Import]
