Chris unlocks his inner Shadow to give us his review

“Released in December 2006 in Japan, Blue Dragon caused a storm. More 360’s were bought in Japan just for the release of that game, than had been bought at launch. That is a pretty big feat for a game to do. Exclusive to the 360, the creative team is a magical group of amazing Japanese game veterans. The creator of Final Fantasy, Hironobu Sakaguchi, is the brains behind the game. It does show as well. The plot follows the same path as many of his games. A group of children, who’s home town is attacked by a “land shark” chase after it, but then end up gaining special powers, and then set out to rid the land of evil. The children are Shu, the fighter of the group who is a born leader, Jiro, the healer and the quiet, smart one and Kluke, who is like the mother figure of the group. Later in the story, you come across Marumaro, a very loud and eager creature and also Zola, a mercenary who joins the fight. These characters are charming and, at times, you begin to feel for the characters.”
