    For people who grew up on old school JRPGs. Blue Dragon excels in bringing RPGs back to the old days.

    Hironobu Sakaguchi's first RPG with his new found company Mistwalker is here. I have always loved JRPGs and to see them evolve over time is a beautiful thing. Looking back to FFVII then looking at FFX...

    Blue Dragon may start off slow but it eventually rises above and beyond what most people expect from it.

    From the demo on Xbox Live, Blue Dragon played and felt like a pretty bad game. If you've played the demo thought it was bad....just know that it does not give you a taste of what this game really is....

    Quirky, but worth it

    Rated on April 29, 2008 by TTDog

    Having bought this on the back of Lost Odyssey (at least after a few hours of Lost Odyssey) I almost instantly regretted it when I discovered how unforgiving Lost Odyssey is. As such it sat on the ...

    Pretty good RPG on 360 from 2007. Worth your time once you're done with the PS2's RPGs.<br />

    Akira Toriyama's last work..

    Rated on May 07, 2008 by SHuN_G0Ku

    For Dragon Ball Z fans out there, this is definitely a must-own since it would probably be Akira Toriyama's last work. This game is marvelous in every aspect. Level design, interactions, battle syst...

    A promising, if not long awaited, RPG that fell short.

    Rated on May 11, 2008 by EnigManic

    Blue dragon was the first decent RPG to hit the Xbox 3560 in a while. unfortunately, it failed to reach it's potential. The graphics are actually pretty decent, done in an anime style. The music sc...

    This game is completely underrated. How could you give this a 6.0. This game has many great things to offer.

    Rated on May 12, 2008 by MisterSinister6

    The only pet peeve i had with this game is how the combat system so closely resembles the Final Fantasy type of fighting style. Besides the the game is perfect. And by the I thought the story was actu...

    The most mind numbingly annoying RPG i've had the displeasure of playing.

    Rated on June 05, 2008 by maniak4life

    I'm sorry but im going to rip into this game...I've been playing Japanese RPG's for years and this is probably the poorest attempt i've seen so far. Everything about it annoys me, from the annoying...
