The Xbox 360 game Blue Dragon is a role playing game created as a follow through of several popular RPG’s. From the talents that brought to life Mistwalker and Dragon Ball Z now comes a new and exciting epic of heroism and friendship.

The main character in this monumental RPG is Shu, a lad who along with his friends are thrust in the middle of a fierce battle. These young heroes are chosen, possessing superhuman strength and magic that allow them to control the shadow phantoms that impersonate their masters. With their own shadows as their main weapons, Shu and his friends wage a battle against an ancient evil. Blue Dragon offers a chance to travel to a fascinating new planet with mysterious ruins and people veiled in illusions. The characters they meet along the way are equally fascinating. But most importantly, it offers players the chance to rise as champions for the light and avert the looming doom.

Review Summary

Unknown to many, Blue Dragon is one of the only two English Language console style RPGs on the Xbox 360. That is probably the reason to try the game according to many of its players. This kind of genre of games is rare. Ardent fans have to wait ages before the next game releases in this genre. The makers/creators behind the Blue Dragon are the same ones behind Final Fantasy. According to a certain reviewer, the plot goes something like this, as spiky-haired Shu wakes up from his nap, and you wander around looking at the scenery, light shining beautifully off the surface of a small pool of water, birds singing, the camera pans out to reveal a beautiful sun drenched village but the peace doesn’t last long. Seconds later, idyll shattered, the Land Shark arrives. This game offers nothing new. Like a certain reviewer quoted that with games like Final Fantasy XII pushing the genre forward, it’s disappointing to see a game with so much talent behind it not attempt to try anything new. It might be fine for players that have never played this kind of game before but for players who have played RPG and are quite used to it then it’s a step backwards for them.
