Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter (PS2)
4 July 2013
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.
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. After getting to the train which is told to carry a powerful weapon, it's attacked, and Ryu is thrown far underground and surviving only because of a chance encounter he had a dragon.
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. Breath of Fire V: Dragon's Quarter differs greatly from its predecessors. The largest difference is that players have the ability to give up and start the game over with some extra exp and items they have collected.
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. Shying away from the more traditional turn-based RPG that the series has always been, Dragon Quarter is a more steam-punk/cyber-punk themed game with a far more involving battle system and a lot of new elements.
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: Like Square Enix have done with some of their games, do not be fooled that because a game has had a good series, that all the games are going to be good. Dragon Quarter is proof of that. I reall was on the verge of crying when playing this game because I realised how much money I wasted on this pathetic excuse for a Breath of Fire game.
Pros: + Pros-Good Graphics
Cons: - Cons-Just lacked in everything previous Breath of Fires had
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. On the other hand, dismissing the cel-chading distracted the main thing that should have been on people's minds - that a new Breath of Fire game was arriving on the Playstation 2.
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: In Chi's recent review of The Getaway , he raises some interesting questions about the importance of gameplay. Chi wonders if perhaps too much emphasis is put on the gameplay component of certain titles, to the point where it overshadows everything, including innovation. And while I certainly think that innovation is an important piece of the videogame experience (otherwise, we'd all still be playing games like Pac-Man and Space Invaders ), I often find myself wondering...
