Blue Dragon from Hironobu Sakaguchi, creator of the original FINAL FANTASY(R) series, an epic role-playing game (RPG) featuring the original artwork of Akira Toriyama, creator of the Dragonball series of manga and anime.
Blue Dragon is an unexceptional RPG that does just enough to escape mediocrity.
I hope this sells like hotcakes because I would love to see Mistwalker and Artoon deliver a sequel and continue on the series.
The pacing through the first half of the game is far too slow to stay engaging for all but the hardcore JRPG fan and the story is not nearly as epic as the multiple disc, 50+ hour game implies.
Blue DragonBlue Dragon is Shu's shadow. Though he lends his enormous power to Shu, Shu must prove his worthiness before Blue Dragon accepts him as his partner.
Shu (Blue Dragon)Shu, the hero of Blue Dragon, is honest and energetic. He has a daredevil personality that sometimes leads him and his friends into dangerous situations.

In spite of a few shortcomings, Blue Dragon is a staple for Xbox 360 owners. Own it.

Blue Dragon isn't the worst RPG I've ever played, but it's aimed at kids so keep that... in mind if you decide to play.

I truly believe this is an absolute MUST HAVE for any RPG fan and Xbox 360 Owner. Sakaguchi San... really hits this one out of the park.

Sakaguchi's first Xbox 360 game is fun but disappointing.
