GameSpot writes: "A year has passed since the brash Shu and his friends brought peace to the world by defeating Nene, a nefarious Ancient. Blue Dragon Plus continues the adventure now that another nemesis has awakened and threatens the land. The first game was met with mixed reactions because it was a very traditional Japanese role-playing game and didn't introduce anything new or particularly exciting. Blue Dragon Plus deviates a bit from the turn-based formula and takes a strategy approach instead by turning the gameplay into a real-time strategy game. It's not as complex as other RTS games out there; thus, from what we've played, it's fairly linear and straightforward".
