Blue Dragon is by far my favorite Xbox 360 game of all time

Blue Dragon is boring and redundant. I managed to make it to the second disc and I couldn't stomach anymore.


Shame, because it started to pick up from that point.
Yeah, I know it's not an endorsement to say "Well it gets better at the 15 hour mark!" but...it's kinda someting you have to get used to with JRPGs I find. The first third always drags.

There's something to be said for In Medias Res, but taken too far and you get the confusing mess that is FF13.


The game does get better as you progress, but the first hours are really good too. I loved the areas, enemies, and bosses from start to end. Sure the story opens up considerably more after the first disc but the game itself flows great all through

I might give it another try sometime, but my backlog is so huge right now with better games who knows when I will get around to playing it again.

great game indeed. enjoyed the whole playthrough, a beautiful work of art. a bit kiddy indeed but its a great rpg nonetheless, reminded me a bit of DQVIII with the in depth story and options. Maru maru is a bit of a nuisance but you adjust. Definitely kicked in my nostalgia factor while playing it.

Criminally underrated game IMO. I had fun playing it, but I wouldn't put it over Ni No Kuni.

The gameplay is what made the game for Blue Dragon. A good game overall, but the critcisms were spot on. I agree with that guy that wouldn't put it over Ni No Kuni, because that game is far better.

Considering classic JRPGs on consoles nowadays are a rarity, it's a lot more than that. The IP itself has tons of potential

They should make more Blue Dragon that are JRPGs and some are not in order to make it more popular.

I'm not saying Blue Dragon is bad, but if Blue Dragon is your favorite Xbox 360 game of all time, then you need to play more Xbox 360 games.....
