Blue Dragon AU Review

This should be a masterclass RPG - IGN gives you the Aussie take. Here's a quick and gentle reminder of why so much was expected of Blue Dragon: Hironobu Sakaguchi (producer), Akira Toriyama (character designer), Nobuo Uematsu (composer). These guys are legends in the Japanese RPG scene, and their resumes sparkle like pure gold. From Uematsu's work on the soundtracks for Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy VII, Toriyama's character and monster designs for Dragon Quest VIII (not to mention Dragon Ball Z), and Sakaguchi's untouchable status as creator of the Final Fantasy series, you would think that combining their superpowers could not only crank out a killer RPG, but solve global warming, end the war on terror and even successfully launch another 3DO console.

Okey we get it, Blue Dragon was not the RPG to de-throne Final Fantasy.
Blue Dragon should have been more innovative as far as the combat system goes, and it might be a bit too japanese to appeal to the Oblivion consumer.

There is acctualy an anime series about Blue Dragon in japan, so MS have put allot of investment into this franchise.

I don`t think this is the right time for Hironobu Sakaguchi to ask MS for a raise, I am disappointed Sakaguchi because I was exited and personaly invested emotionaly in this title. :(

I agree with you about Skies of Arcadia on the Dreamcast. I loved that game so much that when my Dreamcast broke I purchased the game for the Gamecube when it came out.

I'm a big fan of Japanese RPG and I feel Blue Dragon is going to do well here in the States for the 360. I already have full payment on this game.

just above average. Which the score signifies. I loved the game Skies of Arcadia on Dreamcast. And it also received mediocre scores. So this will most likely be more of the same.

You either like old school RPG's or you don't...

My thoughts exactly. Skies reviews weren't that great either but I probably played through that game more than any other.

it's not a final fantasy killer but it's a solid jrpg, i for one will be picking this up when it launches in aus

This game would be really cool if it was made 5 or 10 years ago. I´ve played and didn't get interest. As a rpg game there are a lot better in our days. sometimes looks like a final fantasy remake, but somehow the port didn't work well. It could be a better game... ( my opinion )
