Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter

Into Liquid Sky
10 December 2005
  • 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

There is no pre-existing list of criteria that an RPG has to meet in order to be considered a classic. This might seem obvious but, surprisingly, it’s easy to find a lot of comments like, “[Game Name] is really fun, but way too short for an RPG,” or “[Game Name 2] puts a unique spin on the traditional RPG formula, but it’s almost...
