Product Description

Famed game producer Hironobu Sakaguchi of Mistwalker and developer Artoon present the highly anticipated Xbox 360™ exclusive Blue Dragon. Featuring the character design of Akira Toriyama of Dragon Ball Z and music by Nobuo Uematsu of Final Fantasy, Blue Dragon is an epic role-playing game that centers on a young boy named Shu and several of his friends.

These unlikely heroes possess the power to control phantom shadows that mirror the actions of their masters, giving Shu and his comrades miraculous strength and magical powers.

The warriors can create and develop their combat styles by utilizing different types of Shadow Change, including Sword, Assassin, and Power Magic. Shu and his friends must use the shadows as weapons and wield their skills to save their world from impending doom.

Encountering various people on a planet where numerous ancient ruins remain, the characters and their shadows travel through a world full of mysteries and illusions, where the slightest touch can cause reactions of unparalleled magnitude.

Key Features:

  • Innovative RPG gameplay features: As their quest progresses, warriors can create original attack methods by utilizing several types of Shadow Change, including Sword, Assassin, and Power Magic. You can choose to focus the hero on certain areas of expertise. Shadows level up and gain new abilities associated with the job they are currently doing. Once gained, abilities are not lost and remain available to use when needed.
  • Massive scope and engrossing environments: Shu and his companions battle their way through an immense world filled with vividly illustrated remnants of ancient civilizations long forgotten.
  • Stunning graphics: Taking full advantage of the power of Xbox 360, Blue Dragon engages you in a world and characters that are brought to life with vibrant colors and detail, from Shu's wild hair to his martial arts-style garb, conveying the beautiful simplicity and sense of adventure found in this truly next-generation RPG.
  • Dazzling character design and effects: Toriyama’s unique influence is evident in the design of the game’s anime style characters, as their actions are enhanced with next-gen blur effects. Additionally, the game’s algorithmic animation system adds heightened realism to character and creature movements.
  • Famed developer: Mistwalker is a creative company founded by Hironobu Sakaguchi, the original developer of Final Fantasy. Operated by a handful of experts, the direction of new Mistwalker is influenced by Sakaguchi’s extensive industry experience. Artoon is a digital entertainment design, development, and production company with rich talent and experience. Centering on the design and development of original content, Artoon is mainly involved in the development of software through external cooperation, as well as the design and production of entertainment content in the mobile communication category.

5.0 out of 5 stars some of the best the genre has to offer. September 6, 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Blue Dragon brings back a lot of good memories of classic RPGs ive played over the years. While not groundbreaking in any way, Blue Dragon takes all the eastern rpg conventions to near-perfection.

This may come off as a kids game when you see the childlike characters and cartoony animation style, but for every time you see some cute animals dancing you hear someone yell "that bastard!" or you encounter some ridiculously challenging boss. even the hardcore RPGer will find a challenge in some of these bosses.

The music is always fitting and usually quite beautiful. when you have the composer of FF I-V would you expect any less? i gotta say though, the boss battle theme feels a bit out of place. the total cheezemetal wouldnt be as bad without the vocals, and i know Ian Gillan (Deep Purple) is capable of much better. the voice work was all done exceptionally well though, with the main character Shu being voiced by the same actor as Izzy from the original cast of digimon. very recognizeable voice. i hadnt seen that show in at leased 5 years and i knew who it was right away. thats kind of pointless info, but i thought it was cool.

The main thing that drew me toward this game was the job system. If you've played Final Fantasy V you'll feel right at home with this job system. you select a class (sword master, black mage, ect) for each character. you can freely change class when not in battle, and as you grow in each class you learn the skills and abilities associated with that class. as your characters grow in level you can unlock new classes for them, although there are only 9 classes total, which i found a little disappointing; however, the job system is still my favorite aspect of the game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Fun, but needs more content for leveling up October 20, 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
My son and I have been playing this game together and have really been enjoying it. He's almost 9, and yes, they say the word bastard a few times, but he's so engrossed in the storyline that it hasn't been an issue at all.

The game itself has been quite fun (we aren't done yet, currently on disc 3). The only problem is that we are up to boss fights now, but our levels are suddenly not near high enough. So now we are just putzing around grinding levels. I have WoW for that =P It's much more fun to follow a storyline than grind, especially in this game, so I wish they had planned out the leveling better.

Other than that no complaints.

3.0 out of 5 stars Unleash the Dragon (3.5 Stars) August 30, 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Blue Dragon is yet another highly anticipated XBOX360 title. Not completely for hype, however, but more because of the men behind the game. Hironobu Sakaguchi, Akira Toriyama and Nobuo Uematsu. Sakaguchi is, of course, the famed created of the never-ending Final Fantasy series, Akira Toriyama is a famous character designer for the Dragon Quest series as well as Dragon Ball and Nobuo Uematsu is the music composer for the Final Fantasy games and a contributor to several other games. The only man missing from this "dream team" is Yuji Horii, the producer for Dragon Quest. The last time these men teamed up we got what is arguably one of the greatest RPGs of all time: Chrono Trigger. So, of course, with a game like Chrono Trigger under your belt, as well as the Final Fantasy series, expectations for Blue Dragon are high. Do they live up? If you lower your expectations they do, but for the most part, this game is more of an introduction for those who aren't familiar with Japanese RPGs.

You play as Shu, and as the game begins you fight a Land Shark, a monster that's been terrorizing the village of Talta. Shu and his friends Kluke and Jiro have a plan to get rid of the Land Shark by leading him into a trap. Not everything works out as perfectly planned however and before he knows it, Shu is waking up in some ruins alongside his friends. This is where your journey ultimately begins.

The reason it seems as though Blue Dragon is an introduction to Japanese RPGs is simple: Everything about it is simple and basic, and there's really nothing too "deep" here. When I say simple and basic, I'm not kidding. The story is pretty basic. Mostly because you just don't feel like it's going anywhere. The characters don't help either and neither does the writing.

3.0 out of 5 stars above average. February 8, 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm not an avid gamer anymore, but i do know a good game when i play one. This one in particular is above average, as far as fun factor goes.
Graphics are good,( there are some slowdown issues at times, and skipping in some scenes) sound ranges from ok to really good,( if your not under 16 you will find some of the voice work to be really annoying), gameplay is as easy and traditional as a japanese rpg can be. Story is nothing special, same ol good kids versus a terribly evil villain, there are some small twists here and there for good measure. For me the most enjoying part is character upgrades. everything else was above average.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better Than I Expected January 8, 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Reading all these reviews, you'd think that the only monsters in the game are poo related, the only word spoken is "bastard", and that the game is a total cakewalk. This is not the case; well, mostly.

Yes, there are certain enemies that are shaped like poo, and the characters make allusions to this fact, but they only make up a tiny fraction of the monsters in the game. After reading that the design was done by Akira Toriyama the creator of Dragonball, the poo stuff makes total sense. Having watched Dragonball, I can attest that Blue Dragon is basically a Dragonball game minus the tails. In Blue Dragon, you play as three children on the massive quest to save their village after it is attacked by a mechanical monster. Along the way, the normal RPG qualities proceed such as picking up new characters, and acquiring XP and SP to level up themselves and their dragons, (more on that soon.)

Blue Dragon is a full turn based RPG in which you can see the turn order. There are also no random battles as you can see the enemies on screen. The children are able to use magic in the form of Shadows, which appear as shadows in the form of muscular blue dragons, which is assume is where the title came from. These Shadows are leveled up using SP, and in that progression acquire new skills. The Shadows also have the ability to change classes, which also changes the skills available. These classes can dramatically alter strategies used since you can change classes from a healer type to a mage type. And this is where I differ from the idea this game is too easy. Yes, this game is no Dark Souls , but in normal RPG fashion each boss has a weakness that must be exploited to win. Certain spells can be powered up, which is done by holding A when the meter appears.
