"A good rpg"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is a pretty fun RPG, with a great story and a fun battle mechanic. The biggest problem is that it gets repetitve quickly. If you enjoy jrpgs then you will definitely find some fun here.

"Terrible Game"
1 stars"

Seriously don't contemplate buying this no matter how cheap.

It is one of the most annoying games I have ever played. I can't even think of words to describe it… Wish I could minus rate it.

Sorry Mighty

"Great Anime Game"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Blue Dragon is a great anime RPG. Blue Dragon is turn based. You have a party of 5 characters, Jiro, Shu, Kluke, Zola and Marumaro.

Pros:

  • Great Story
  • Combat is cool
  • Game world is polished

Cons:

  • Can occasionally get boring
"Excellent game - my boy has been enjoying it!!!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

What can I say – my boy has been playing this game non-stop!

"Turn Based and Characters are very anoying"
2 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

The game play is very slow as it is a turn based game and so gets frustrating at times. But what really killed the game was the characters they are very irratating and they basically repeat what each other say but in a more annoying way. Its not just what they say but how they say it… Very annoying voices especially Marumaro (who constantly starts dancing). The game play isnt bad and the graphics and landscape is actually rather good. The leveling system is probably the best thing about the game as you can unlock aspects of one class and apply them to another. I would not recomend this game to anyone who is not a fan of turn based game its unbearable if you hate them.

Description

U.S Version, region free.

Famed game producer Hironobu Sakaguchi of Mistwalker game studio and developer Artoon present the highly anticipated Xbox 360-exclusive Blue Dragon. Featuring the character design of Akira Toriyama, who designed Dragon Ball Z, and music by Nobuo Uematsu, the composer for Final Fantasy, Blue Dragon is an epic role-playing game (RPG) centered on a young boy named Shu and several of his friends. These unlikely heroes possess miraculous strength and magical power to control phantom shadows that mirror the actions of their masters.

Shu and company must use their shadows as weapons as they battle the evil Nene and an antiquated human race of people who command a magical power thought to have perished long ago. Shu and friends must wield their skills to save their world from impending doom.

Encountering various people on a planet with numerous ancient ruins, the characters and their shadows travel through a world full of mysteries and illusions, where the slightest touch can cause reactions of unparalleled magnitude.

Features:

  • Innovative RPG gameplay features - As their quest progresses, warriors can create original attack methods by using several types of Shadow Change, including Sword, Assassin and Power Magic. Players can also choose to focus their hero on certain areas of expertise; as they fight, shadows will level up and gain new abilities associated with the job being done. Once gained, abilities remain available to use when needed.
  • Massive scope and engrossing environments - Shu and his companions battle their way through an immense world filled with vividly illustrated remnants of ancient civilizations long forgotten. Their journey takes them through alluring ancient ruins scattered with machines of war that have long since fallen into disrepair.
  • Stunning graphics - Taking full advantage of the power of Xbox 360, Blue Dragon will engage gamers in a world and characters that are brought to life with vibrant colors and detail - from Shu's wild hair to his martial arts-style garb - conveying the beautiful simplicity and sense of adventure found in this truly next-generation RPG.
  • Dazzling character design and effects - Toriyama's unique influence is evident in the design of the game's anime-style characters, whose actions are enhanced with next-generation blur effects. In addition, the game's algorithmic animation system adds heightened realism to character and creature movements.
