Dissidia is a fighting game. However, it has so much more depth to it than just that. It features Story Mode (which I won't spoil for you), Arcade Mode, Quick Battle, and an Online (Ad hoc) mode. So, with all these options, you will be spending many hours playing. Characters are customizable including equipment, accessories, summons, and abilities. By playing more often, you can also earn bonuses that can be used in game. And with a catalog filled with extras you might never want to stop playing.

Story Mode in Dissidia, is the Coup de grâce of fighters. Most fighting games flop on this, however, Dissidia makes it one of its strongest points. You start off choosing from any of the Cosmos characters (the good guys). Story mode features more than just fighting. Players must also navigate something not unlike a chess board. You have so many moves to beat the level before you start losing Story points. These points give you bonuses such as summons and items. This makes it challenging to obtain all items, treasures, and beat all enemies. By fulfilling certain requirements in battle you can gain extra moves and get bonus Story Points (you want this).

For the actual fighting, Dissidia is hard to top. Each character is different and has their own strengths and weaknesses such as speed or defense. Players choose from 2 types of attacks: 1 type damages your opponents HP while the other damages their Bravery points which allows for extra damage and defense. If you lose all Bravery points, you are "broken" and are vulnerable to EVERYTHING! If you are broken, you must run if you hope to survive or be really good at guarding. Randomly inserted into battle are EX Cores which give Limit Breaks, trances, etc. These will give you a massive edge in battle and may lead to your victory.

The online mode is fun. Winning gives you bragging rights, do that you can tub your victory in, especially if your friend is in the room. You don't get EXP for losing, (that sucks) but extras in the catalog can fix that.

Visually appealing to all with a stellar voice cast. I was very afraid of hearing Kefka's laugh. I was pleasantly surprised.

I definitely recommend this to those of you who have a PSP. And if you don't have a PSP: GET ONE!!!!!

Interesting, I JUST this weekend got back into Dissidia after about a 5 month hiatus from it. It still rocks!

I got a message on Mognet saying "We didn't think we'd ever see you again!" :D
