Critic Reviews for The Legend of Dragoon

If you're looking for a PS1 RPG experience that typifies the era, The Legend of Dragoon is a solid shout. A big budget title at the time, its ambition is still hard to fault - but with the benefit of hindsight, it's also easy to see where this Sony-backed release stumbles. The combat system is uniquely satisfying, but it can feel frustratingly stunted. Meanwhile, endearing characters carry an emotional story, but an awkward localisation effort comes close to sabotaging the script. A flawed classic, but a memorable adventure all the same.

Despite reminding us of carefree years, in which video games were experienced in a significantly different way, The Legend of Dragoon is not the gem of JRPGs forgotten over time. The "Sony Final Fantasy" is in fact still a title too derivative, which has from its some creative flair here and there, lost in a sea of banality due to main characters without charisma, a plot overall really bland and a soundtrack certainly not very incisive. A bad game? Not at all. Only, not the great immortal classic that many remember.
