Blue Dragon reminds me of the adorable little Hallmark cards that my grandma used to send me. As this cartoon-like quest unfolds, you'll see animals singing and dancing, and you'll soak up a lifetime's worth of heart-warming moments. Does this mean Blue Dragon is geared more towards kids? Absolutely not. For every talking bear that you come across, you'll also encounter an unbelievably challenging boss, or will hear your character yell, "You bastard!" IT's not as dark as any of the Final Fantasy titles, but this story is serious. The gameplay offers a straight forward but addictive combat experience, and a world that you want to scour every inch of. It's not often that you'll come across an experience that makes you feel warm and fuzzy just as much as it makes you fear your life, but that's exactly what Blue Dragon does.
