Summary: The game itself is fantastic! The graphics are awesome for a ds game. the art and design for the characters are cool and similar to Chrono Trigger, Dragon Quest, and Dragon Ball Z ( Am I seeing a pattern here?) The music is pretty catchy and pleasing to the ears. The story, although a little cheesey, is actually quite interesting. The gameplay is pretty nice and smooth and the controls are easy to learn.
Summary: My 10 year old loves this game. I am not a gamer so this is written soley for the parent looking to gift this. My son said "Mom. You've got to get this game for my cousins for Christmas. It's really great." I asked, "which cousin?" He replied "all of them mom. It's that goood." I don't know what it's about but I can tell you it must be fun.
Summary: While I have played very little of this game, I like the graphics and gameplay so far. I also have not played the games released before this, but the history is understandable and ejoyable so far (but I guess it could be more enjoyable if I had the other games). Overall this is a very good game for the DS, even if not the best one.
Summary: It's the third game in the Blue Dragon series and has nothing to do with the god awful anime and manga series, which still confuses me on why it wasn't done by Akira Toriyama, but I'm getting off topic. Here's the review for a game, Blue Dragon:Awakened Shadow. People who hate JRPGs should just go read one of my other reviews.
Summary: *4.5 I've never actually played the other 2 Blue Dragons...but I'm loving this one. The first hour is exposition-heavy, and the dialogue/story is really cheesy and cliche. However, once you start questing, this game is a blast. PROS: +Camera is controlled by L and R. Will rotate in 8 "clicks," making it easier to focus in a direction than other games (DQIV/V). +Excellent item/weapon synthesis system.
