Too Much of a Good Thing
1 March 2010
Excerpt: Innovation and originality in the RPG genre is a bit misleading, in that most of what is touted as "new" is simply an old system in a fresh coat of paint. True to form, most of the sequels that constitute the staple diet of all RPGamers only deviate very slightly from one iteration to the next.
Excerpt: The fifth in a series created by Capcom, Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter is a tactical RPG dungeon crawler of sorts. Ryu and Bosch are rangers, sent to defend a train from a terrorist group known as Trinity.
Excerpt: After a great disaster, the inhabitants of the world were forced to live hundreds of meters below the ground under a false sky. A low ranking Ranger, Ryu, will attempt to climb out of the underworld and be the first to see the true sky.
Excerpt: Whether you believe in Hell or not, there’s no denying it sounds like an unpleasant place. Fire lashes out, peels away your skin and incinerates your innards; a flame that no water can quench.
Excerpt: Change is good. Considering how doggedly Capcom has refused to make major changes to their other series (Resident Evil, Street Fighter), it may come as a huge surprise the almost complete overhaul that the new Breath of Fire has received.
Pros: Awesome battle system, Excellent music and graphics, SOL adds replayability, Very challenging
Cons: Short first time through, Save system not great, Lots of long battles and linear dungeons
Excerpt: Let's face it, the initial reaction to those preview screenshots of Breath of Fire V would have put any OAP on a ventilator. Many found the cel-shading quite cheap looking and those preferring the graphics of the last two games would be thrown into torture.
Excerpt: Backdrop Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter (BoFDQ) is the highly anticipated fifth installment of a much admired series of RPG’s. So, why not call the game Breath of Fire V: Dragon Quarter ? Though this is the title of the Japanese version released months ago, our version’s title clearly omits the “V”.
Excerpt: Well this is another one of the Famed Breath of Fire games. Where you as a normal person just living out your life then of course you eventually find out you are a ?destroyer of Worlds? or something like that.
