The Legends of Dragoon Preview
Sony knows that before the Playstation packs it's bags, it wants it to have another stellar RPG on it's hands as a going away present. Though we may think that there will never be any RPG that can beat a Final Fantasy game, we might be proven wrong. Sony is publishing and developing a game called The Legend of Dragoon. This game has been worked on for around 3 years now, and it took around 100 people to develop it. You can bet your money that Legend of Dragoon will definitely set the standards on the PSX like no other game has done before.
I have seen a couple of screens from Legend of Dragoon and I must say "Final Fantasy move over "cause Sony's Legend of Dragoon has come into town". Breath taking environments all in real time, make this game the most pleasurable game to look at. The backgrounds look phenomenal and the lighting effects are excellent. Fully polygonal areas look so good it'll make you forget all about Playstation 2. The character detail is exceptional too but we have only seen two characters Dart and Shana, but we know of 4. So the graphics definitely push the Playstation to it's maximum limits.
Legend of Dragoon is an RPG filled with tons of areas to explore, many weapons to use, great dragons to find, and the most deepest gameplay in any RPG ever seen. This game hasn't been worked on for 3 years for nothing, you can expect over 30 minutes of excellently designed CGs, one of the longest RPG's yet, stunning character animation, breath taking background design and a lot more.
You might be thinking what's a Dragoon. Well a Dragoon is one of the 108 races that were created by a magical tree. Dragoons are people who control dragons, I'm guessing as protection. Another of the 108 races were humans. The humans were slaves of the enslavers, and the Dragoons were fed up with what they were seeing and started a war called the "dragon war". The war was fought against the Enslavers (who use magic) and the Dragoons (who use and control dragons).
Legend of Dragoon (the game itself) starts 10,000 years after the war has ended. The "enslavers" and "dragoons" have vanished leaving only the humans. The games main character is Dart. He is on a voyage to find the person who killed his parents. Along his voyage he comes across a mysterious "Hooded Man" a girl named "Rose", and Dart's childhood friend Shana, who might have feelings for Dart (hmm... do we smell romance?).
Legends of Dragoon is filled with Epic proportions and will be a tale to remember. The game will be filled with 4 CD's of RPG at it's best and over 30 minutes of high quality CGs. The Legend of Dragoon is an RPG game which should not be missed by anyone. Look for it sometime next year maybe around April or May.
