Customer Reviews of Blue Dragon
Has more content for leveling up4/24/2013
the story itself doesn't shatter any conventions by any means. if you've played Japanese RPGs before you know the idea. evil being trying to overthrow the world/ragtag group of young hero set out to stop him & meet new friends along the way. its just that, like the game play, the characters and their underlying stories are done so well.
I loved the leveling system. How you can use the best skills from all the classes. Reminded me of Final Fantasy Tactics! The only issue I had with it was that I took a wrong turn and fought some harder guys in the beginning of the game and then the rest of the game seemed too easy. I never had to use any of my items except for boss battles.
The only reason i got this game becasue of the art style.
