No book, movie, or any other video has the quite the story that The Legend of the Dragoon tells in its four disc set. Yeah you read that correctly it took four discs to make this one video game they aren’t sequels or different games they are all the same game each one being a different chapter. So I guess you can say the story is only four chapters long but each disc takes about 16 hours of playing time to complete mainly because of how much dialogue was put into the game. The story shows and teaches how to make sacrifices for the ones you love and wish to protect. It hasn’t really held up that well over the years at the time of its release it became really popular extremely fast and there has been many rumors that there will be a sequel but nothing has really been put in motion since its release in 1990. Now the only fan base it has since the producers have done a poor job marketing the game has dwindled down to just a few facebook groups with maybe one-hundred members each. I believe the opening intro to the game gives the best quote to describe the moral of the story it says “When the clash of swords echo, the journey chasing the past ends, and the journey to know today begins. One soul seeks another and pledges their sworn friendship to another. One mystery begets the next and the doors of fate are opened. You are free to sever the chains of fate that bind you….” The game basically begins with a small town called Neet being attacked by what every body called the black monster, nobody actually knew who or what the monster was or the intent of the attacks. The main character named Dart was just a child when his home town Neet was attacked by the black monster as far as he knew his father went to fight the monster and died in... ... middle of paper ... ...reviews for the game one article from daily radar had this to say about the game “This one has it all -- an innovative combat interface, a sweeping story and some of the most gorgeous graphics seen in a PSX RPG. Quite simply, it's a must-buy for any console RPG fanatic.” Then you have your negative nancies such as the comment made by game revolution “Despite the hype, Legend of Dragoon is a soulless creature, a subpar game held aloft by deceptive marketing. Don't trust it.” As for me I have nothing but good things to say about the game the graphics for its time are absolutely ridiculously beautiful. The only thing about it that bothers me is that they never explained the ending but hopefully one day it will be with a sequel if its ever put into production so we will just have to see.
