4.0 out of 5 stars Real Time Goodness, 20 Sept. 2011
This review is from: Blue Dragon Plus DS [Nintendo DS] (Video Game)
The first thing to say about this gem of a game is that it's a sequel to Blue Dragon on Xbox 360 so if you haven't played that you might be a bit confused as to the back story and reason why the events of this game are happening. That being said it works well as a stand alone game and before long you'll be enjoying real time battles and rushing to open treasure chests before the enemy loots them.

The game looks very nice on my DSI XL and the cut-scenes are possibly the best I have ever seen on the DS, the music is good to and for anybody who's played Final Fantasy Revenant Wings the game feels familiar and you know your in for some fun. Much like the Revenant Wings we have a variety of different units under our control from melee to long range and of course healing characters. The game has good dialogue between it's characters but as said at the start of the review would mean more to people who were already familiar to them from the first game.

What stops me giving this game 5 stars is a couple of minor complaints. In the heat of battle it can be hard to select 1 specific character and there is no option to do so other than tapping on him/her with the stylus say for instance they need healing or you want to use one of their special abilities, if there was a tab with pictures of the characters and you could touch them to access all there moves that would have pushed the game up to 5 stars.

Also things can get a bit crowded on screen even with the DSI XL you'll find more often than not you'll be tapping the "all" command to select all your units to target just one enemy rather than select 2 or 3 units. The units can get a bit tangled up and moving/separating them into a good order to attack bosses can be a bit frustrating (again much like Revenant Wings).

However this game is lots of fun to play. It's familiar yet fresh as each of the characters has different shadow skills they can unleash (think of them as special powers) and of course the more you level up your characters the more powers/skills they learn. There is a good 30 hours worth of fun to be had in this game and I was more than pleasantly surprised by it's charm and quality.
