Installing the game to the HDD really enhances the game IMO.

I'd been hoping for $9.99 shipped deal on this but this is close enough. Time for me to grab it.

just posting to say that I think this game is fantastic, i dont usually play the final fantasy style rpgs but I really got into this one and bought it for full price at release and was thoroughly satisfied, i highly recommend the game and this price is an absolute steal, plus you may want to play through it before Blue Dragon Plus is released for the DS in feb so that you are ready for the continued story

Way overpriced. I'm someone how loves a classic style grind-fest RPG too, but this just drags on like none other.

Of course a lot of that is due to the way the story is told in such a childish fashion. I haven't been able to enjoy any of the paper mario or mario and luigi rpgs either, no matter how hard I try.

Go to the game on the XBox menu, press Y and then choose Install to HD.

I am always tempted by deals like this, then I just remember how bad the games actually are. Good for those just looking to build up a big library of games to impress people with though.

Just to state how in-depth I've played this game, I have 975 Gamerscore in this game (missed one stupid achievement) and I can say that this game is NOT worth buying. But you wont listen, you'll buy it anyways....and you'll be sorry.

You went through the trouble of getting a 975 gamerscore on it, and you don't like it? :fridge:

No, I'll listen to you on this one ... :lol: ... but I'm sure glad I bought Golden Axe: Beast Rider despite everyone's warnings because I actually wound up liking that one alot.

I don't know about the others, but if it weren't for topics like this, I would have missed several good deals. I don't mind it when particularly good deals get a new topic every now and then because most of the time I've missed it the first time around.

i liked blue dragon a lot. the first disc was kinda bleh but it picks up towards the end, and the 2nd and 3rd discs are 1000% better. well worth 12 bucks


975g on this game is impressive... it's stingy with it's achievements!

Yes


Why? If the achievements aren't necessarily easy, why waste so much time on this game if you don't like it? There are plenty of other bad games out there with easy achievements...or even good ones! :lol:

The story kinda sucks and the whole game has that kiddie vibe, but I did enjoy it. There was a real derth of rpgs when I was playing through and it helped tide me over. The job system appealled to my OCD tendencies and the battle system was solid if unremarkable. I paid about $10 for it a few years ago and its worth that, IMO.

And wow, 975 gamer pts?! That's some serious time comittment....

I loved this game. Yes, hearing Shu yell "I won't give up" a million times made me want to stab him in the face, but other than that it was fine (if juvenile). Being able to configure skills to have two characters specializing in both black AND white magic helped a lot. Reminded me a lot of the early Final Fantasy games with how straightforward the customization is. It's probably the first RPG I've finished since Chronotrigger. lol

The opinions in this thread match what I've considered this game to be: a fence. I admit I played the demo when it was first released and was unimpressed, but I'm quite hardcore with Japanese RPGs and I'm willing to give Sakaguchi the benefit of the doubt that I'll find some degree of justification for $13.00.

Because I paid $50 for it and I have an achievement addiction.

Bottom line is, the game sucks, and sucks bad. I have no reason to lie about it. There was never a moment when I thought it had picked up or had become "more fun". But then again, that's just my opinion and obviously some people will find this game extremely enjoyable.

But they would be wrong.

Feel the same way about Conan for the 360. Lot of bad feedback on it but I picked it up for $10 at Circuit City and I really ended up enjoying it.

I would kill to have the time some of you people have, unfortunately, I have a job and a life, so I don't have 100 hours to kill on a game just so people who don't even know me think I'm an elite gamer...
Why don't you develop a crack addiction?
It's way cooler than achievements, seriously, do it...
