It's basically what I expected from a jRPG.
Enough is enough I have had it with these motherf****ing vampires in this motherf****ing rain.

I think JRPG fans did like it.

It's just that JRPG fans are a dying breed.

Pretty much, JRPG fans are also extremely picky.

Well, when it came out I thought it was pretty good, but coming off of the PS2 gen and all those amazing RPGs, I was expecting a little more.

Of course, after LO and Blue Dragon JRPGs pretty much vanished, so compared to what we get today Blue Dragon looks a bit of a masterpiece.

Absolutely terrible story in a genre (mostly) loved for the stories.

This is a base lie. (The dying out) We're just completely overshadowed by Casual CoD Jock players who can't appreciate the concept of a plot more sophisticated then 'here's a bad guy, shoot him'. Same reason Mass effect series lost it's RPG mechanics in the later parts, and the third even offered a 'casual play the storyline for you with no choices' mechanic for the CoD players who couldn't be bothered to pay enough attention to the plot to make moral decisions.

Also, Marumaro's voice acting. Nails across the blackboard of my soul.... God, I can't be the only one to hate it so badly.

And frankly, Jrpg fans AREN'T picky, but no one ****ing MAKES Jrpgs on consoles anymore. Good lord, stop blaming the audience, blame the game developers for not producing them.

It was to easy. A difficulty patch was added with some dlc for free.

It also looks "kiddy" to some people. Personally I don't mind.

It was boring.
Many other games are much more fun to play that are also JRPG.
Grandia 2, Star Ocean 2, Final Fantasy Tactics + many many others destroy it.
Old School Games FTW!

I'm surprised I didn't like it more. Played for awhile but it has been in my backlog pile for some time. Marumaro's voice is incredibly annoying, but I just muted it, that isn't the big reason. I love most turn-based RPGs but for some reason it didn't really grab me.

The story is alright, the graphics are alright, the gameplay is alright, the combat is alright...

It's just alright. It's not mind blowing, it's not crap it's just..........alright.
