Blue Dragon Plus

 

The original Blue Dragon on the XBox 360 had its problems; mainly that the story and gameplay were geared towards two diametrically opposed demographics. However, I appreciated its style and charm

With its obtuse controls, scarce story, and shocking brevity, I see little reason to recommend this game to anyone.

Blue Dragon Plus- DS

 

Blue Dragon for the Xbox 360 was supposed to be incredibly excellent. It was created by the folks at Mistwalker, backed up by the pedigree of some of the most recognizable names in the JRPG world...

Blue Dragon Plus Review

 

OK, the first thing I can say about Blue Dragon Plus for the DS is “the compression is good,” and I'm not just talking about the in-game cinematics. I mean the whole game. It's not like making a JRPG for the handheld is a new concept but shrinking a...

Blue Dragon Plus has a few character movement issues but overall is a fun, easy-to-learn, highly-polished game. It's deep enough for JRPG veterans and simple enough for JRPG noobs both to enjoy. While a thorough knowledge of the previous game story is...

Blue Dragon Plus

 

Lots of games these days make it into sequel territory. Developers and publishers both love to stick with an established property rather than risk millions of dollars on an unproven concept. Usually, the sequel is an evolutionary advancement of the...

As a reviewer, you get the chance to play lots of games. Some of them you would have purchased on your own, and others you would have skipped if no one had given you a copy. I'm not good at RTS games, so I don't typically enjoy them. Thus, I would...

Blue Dragon Plus

 

Whilst it wasn't everyone's favourite RPG on the Xbox 360, I personally enjoyed Blue Dragon. Sure it had its flaws but it was, on the whole, enjoyable. Blue Dragon Plus for the Nintendo DS isn't based upon the Xbox 360 RPG, although it is set in the...

At first I thought it was a strange decision to make Blue Dragon Plus more of an RTS game rather than a traditional RPG. In some respects however the decision makes sense as the DS already has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to the RPG genre...

Blue Dragon Plus

 

When Blue Dragon was first released it marked the beginning of a line of stellar RPGs on the Xbox 360. The next move for the series was on the Nintendo DS, a portable system that is known for its strong role playing games. Can Blue Dragon Plus make a...

Blue Dragon Plus can not compete with all of the other RPGs on the Nintendo DS. With Dragon Quest V, a new Final Fantasy game coming out in the next month or so and a strong lineup of Atlus games I can?t help but think that Blue Dragon Plus came out at...

Blue Dragon Plus

 

Blue Dragon Plus sees the return of Marumaro for this DS iteration of the Xbox 360 RPG released back in 2007. The series is a collaboration between various JRPG luminaries and looks to continue the series that has already seen moderate success. From...

A bit of a mixed bag really. This is a game that tries so hard to be sweeping and epic and whatnot, but just ends up being laughably predictable and generic. However, we could excuse all that and be nice about it were the gameplay not so ruddy bad....

Blue Dragon Plus (DS) review

 

Blue Dragon was released at the back end of 2007 exclusively on the Xbox 360 to fairly positive reviews. It had an excellent anime visual style, coupled with a very traditional turn-based RPG battle system. The game was created using the talents of...

Blue Dragon Plus is not a bad game. Despite its failings, it manages to be a perfectly competent RPG, but it does nothing to excite the imagination or stimulate the player. If it were a colour, it would be beige. If it were a foodstuff, it would be a...

Blue Dragon Plus (NDS)

 

Victory: review game. Defeat: thrown DS at wall.

The game’s flaws while not game breaking only serve to remind you of better games not just in the RTS genre but strategy games in general with the likes of Disgaea or Advance Wars being far superior when compared this where every battle dissolves into...

Blue Dragon Plus

 

The Blue Dragon franchise's penchant for blandness continues in this adequate but uninspired sequel.

The summoned shadows look really cool ; Good story, highlighted by excellent cinematics ; A fun variety of spells and items to mess around with

Combat gets monotonous ; Constant story interruptions mess with the pace of battles ; A bunch of interface and control quirks
