Brief Game Reviews: Blue Dragon

This feels a bit like Final Fantasy for small children. I’m not complaining too much; at it’s core, this is an excellent Final Fantasy-style game. The game is epic, my play through lasted about fifty-five hours. The combat is turn-based, and leveling up your character and character class is fun. Best of all about this game, the music is by Nobuo Uematsu. The soundtrack is very good.

The game ceases to impress when you realize it’s intended for a younger audience. The visuals are very cartoony. The story isn’t nearly as deep as some of Sakaguchi’s other games. The heroes of the game are children. It’s not made for someone my age.

If you can get past the kid-friendly nature, this is a solid JRPG.
4/5
