Blue Dragon Review

So much has changed for the Xbox brand since February 24, 2005. That was the day when the world first learned that Japanese gaming legend Hironobu Sakaguchi (creator of Final Fantasy and formerly one of Square Enix's most successful producers) would be making two next generation games for Microsoft. Currently these are role-playing games (RPGs) meant for the Xbox 360, and one of them has finally been released to the delight of English-literate gamers in the East.

That game is Blue Dragon and this version is the 2nd Asian region release, now packed with full English text/subtitles as well as Japanese and Korean voiceovers. As it turned out, Blue Dragon is a heavyweight joint collaboration between Microsoft (publisher), Mistwalker (Sakaguchi's studio), Artoon (game development and coding), Akira Toriyama (Dragon Ball Z creator and character designer) and Nobuo Uematsu (musician responsible for Final Fantasy soundtracks). With their combined efforts, I myself had pretty high expectations for this game and for two years I have waited. Let's not forget that Sakaguchi and Toriyama worked together in the classic Chrono Trigger.

I don't know if I'm going to buy the game yet, but definitely plan on renting it. It's good to see a very positive review of the game. Hopefully it's as good as this review implies; if so, then I will most definitely buy.

Yea, I'm really interested in Lost Odyssey but I'm really not looking forward to this game at all. The game looks kind of bland to me & I don't like the art style. I don't mind the traditional gameplay but nothing about the game really seems engaging :-(

Download the playable demo on XBL, so you can see for yourself.

Hmmm the game looks good, but I don't think I can completely trust an Xbox dedicated site. I'll wait for IGN or Famitsu to review it before I buy...

edit: never mind, Famitsu gave it a 37/40. Looks like I'll be getting it

just because its a xbox dedicated site doesn't mean there going to screw around with the opinion of the game (except if its halo or pro console like sony protection group). Example:, i just gave Project Sylpheed a 6.9/10 and Vampire Rain which i need to post a 0 or 1...gotta think about it.

The graphics in this game are AMAZING. Looks like a pixar movie. Must buy.

Another Review that gave it a 9+/10

This time a 9.4!

Isn't it out in a week? Might pick it up for my birthday if it is.
