Blue Dragon


Hironobu Sakaguchi, Akira Toriyama, Nobuo Uematsu the last project that these three men created was one of if not the best RPG experience that you can get on the SNES....

Blue Dragon


Hironobu Sakaguchi, the father of the famous Final Fantasy series, went on to create his own game studio, Mistwalker, in 2004. This was big news, and when Mistwalker finally announced its first game - Blue Dragon - you could imagine that it was even...

Unfortunately, it's less than the sum of its parts. Even if you enjoy the combat, the childish experience makes it hard to stomach for long amounts of time. If you can handle this, then you'll like Blue Dragon; but, it's definitely not for everyone.

Blue Dragon


Blue Dragon was one of the few anticipated JRPG's to come out on the Xbox 360 last year, and the reason was simple: It was developed by the creator of Final Fantasy, Hironobu Sakaguchi. Sakaguchi's new company, Mistwalker, was formed to help Microsoft...

In the end, Blue Dragon was a fun, albeit conventional, JRPG for the 360. The gameplay stuck out for me as the strong point, with the plot being the weakest. JRPG fans who just want to have some fun stomping on baddies will probably end up enjoying...

Blue Dragon (Xbox 360)


There are a million reasons to take a pass on Blue Dragon. Nobody's blaming you for being sick of turn-based combat. Or maybe you just can't stand Akira Toriyama's character design. Perhaps you just don't have the time for an epic-length role-playing...

Sadly, the game's localization may be its Achilles? heel. The English voice actors are typical anime talent -- and the script they've been given doesn't inspire them to rise above their station. The stilted, humorless translation is a little more...

Blue Dragon


One of Microsoft's latest efforts at an irresistible Xbox 360 exclusive is Blue Dragon. Yes, Blue Dragon is not part of the Final Fantasy series, nor is it published by SquareEnix. Blue Dragon, developed by Mistwalker Studios and published by...

Charming, cute characters who nevertheless embark on an ultimately significant and deeply affecting storyline ; Fun revitalization of the basic, turn-based battle system ; Long, deep story that isn’t over in 30 hours or less

Some of the gameplay mechanics may feel a bit old school to fans of next-gen RPG hits like Oblivion and Mass Effect ; Graphics are sharp for what they are, but don’t scream “next gen” the way other top Xbox 360 titles do

Blue Dragon is an exciting adventure and the beginning of what looks to be a charming new IP for Mistwalker and Microsoft! A sequel is already in the works, so hop on now!

Blue Dragon


Old school game on new school system.

I absolutely love the art style of the game. Character art comes from the famous manga artist, Akira Toriyama. While not exactly cell shaded, the game does have a distinctive cartoon look to it. The animation is incredible, and the fight sequences,...

Blue Dragon Review


Not everyone is going to have the kind of stamina this game requires.

There's more than enough story, combat, and customization to keep you Blue Dragon for a long, long time; the game stretches out over three discs, an impressive enough feat back in the days of the PlayStation, but truly staggering on the 360. Not...

Blue Dragon


Given that the three big names behind the game are Hironobu Sakaguchi (father of the Final Fantasy series), Akira Toriyama (father of Dragon Ball), and Nobuo Uematsu (video game music composer extraordinaire), and considering that the last game these...

Blue Dragon doesn?t offer a story that will change the world of JRPGs, but it does show rather well what a next-generation RPG can be like. The battle system, although basic, is appealing once you?ve added the right skills through ranking up your...
