What a game, my friends! The game simply delivers everything you need to have fun. The battle system is interesting, the game's soundtrack is fabulous, the plot runs well on the 04 discs and the main thing is, it's done around the characters, so here you certainly won't see characters that join the group but that's with if it wasn't there, like several we can see in Chrono Cross or Gau in FF VI.
It has one of the most beautiful endings in all RPG games, endearing characters. A story about love, about loyalty, and about how good RPGs should be.
This game is just Ok. It is a rip off of final fantasy 7. But it's super linear and you travel to your destinations on a dotted line which for me ruins any rpg. I think open worlds like ff7 is what makes an rpg great. The battle system is pretty cool but that's about it for me. Not a terrible game but not on the level **** rpg like final fantasy.
I bought the game off ebay because of the hype and beat it and this game's pathetic. I have quite the collection of Jrpgs between Snes, PS1 and PS2 and Legend of Dragoon is easily one of the worst I own. The story is pathetic (if you can call that a story), the characters are boring, the pace is just a corridor like FFXIII without anything else to do beside the main story (no sidequests) and the battle system is nothing more than an archaic turn based system even by Snes standards. It does have a tacky timing based button press to successfully make the attacks but what is the point really? This is just as stupid as these days QTE's... I'm not hating on the game, I'm just being honest and this game's not even worth the 7 bucks I paid for it. Now for some reason the prices for this game are skyrocketing from 5-7 bucks to $35 used and like $90 new. Not worth it.
This game has far too many fake 10 scored reviews. It's not a zero, but it certainly is not a ten. Combat is shallow, the story isn't great, and the game design is so simple you would think it is for children who have just learned their colors. Late game relies on Magic as it is broken and most of your characters have no access to it. The combat mechanic is not innovative. It's a time mechanic to do more damage in battle and it looks and performs awfully. Probably due to the limitations of its time. It's an ok game and if you played it as a child it probably has a special place in your heart, but there are hundreds of better RPGs.
SummaryA peaceful beginning. The legend was born 10,000 years ago. A violent uprising. A civilization of flying creatures enslave the human race. A bloody war. In a bid for freedom, the humans harness the spiritual forces of Dragons and triumph. Tranquility and harmony exist between all. But the past and the future are about to collide...Unveil...
