It’s time to master your Shadow again with Ignition entertainment’s Blue Dragon Plus! Fans of the original Blue Dragon game for the Xbox 360 will find themselves playing with some of their favorite characters again in this action packed game. Once again our heroes must take on an evil Shadow and save their world.

Shadow Reborn

It’s been one year since Shu and his group of friends took down the evil Nene, and thank goodness they did, that guy is creepy. Out of the core of the world, a mysterious cube appears and begins to move about, catching the eye of King Jabral. The Shadow of Balaur, an evil three-headed dragon emerges from the cube and signals the start of another epic quest to save the world.


Sequel Confusion?

Most players find it difficult to jump into a sequel because a lot of the things that are done or talked about come from the original game. But Blue Dragon Plus is special, the game takes a few minutes to tell you about the characters, what they do and the best strategies for playing them. This is super helpful because the game has you jump right into a battle. It’s also super helpful to read the little booklet that comes with the game because it explains how to use health potions and channel your characters’ Shadows.


Battling Enemies

Shu and his friends are moved around the bottom DS screen by tapping them with the stylus and then tapping the place you want them to move to, the object you want them to grab/work with or the bad guy you want them to take on. Players then use the touch pad to move around the map. As an added cool feature, all of the battles are done in real-time. That means that as you move your characters, the CPU is moving its characters too. Better eat before you play or the baddies might get you!


Bottom Line

This game has some great cut scenes! The graphics are awesome and it looks pretty close to something you may see on the DS’ bigger console buddies. With cool real-time action and a DS game that uses the stylus a ton, you can’t go wrong picking up this game.
