IGN get their feet wet with Sakaguchi's epic RPG.
"After only two hours of playing Blue Dragon, I've already searched through a pile of dung on the ground for money, fought a flamboyant dinoram, been healed by electro-wave hypnosis, talked to a sheep-person, and been attacked by a Poo Snake. Yep. We've got a bona fide Japanese RPG on our hands here.
That opening paragraph may not get you very excited about plunking down some cash to try out Blue Dragon, but there's a reason for all of the hype surrounding this role-playing game. Even if it were a run of the mill RPG, people would be talking about it just because there are so few games of the genre on Xbox 360. The legacy of Blue Dragon is what makes people so excited to try out the title, which hits the United States this August. Hironobu Sakaguchi, legendary creator of Final Fantasy, is responsible for the story and concept. Akira Toriyama of Dragonball Z fame headed up character and enemy design. This is no run of the mill RPG if the history of those at the helm is any indication."
