Legend of Dragoon is a great game, to sum it up real quick.
I love the Dragoon system and the Addition system. Both are great and make the battles so much more interesting. Music is great and at the time the game was made, the graphics were fairly decent. Dialogue wasn't always the greatest, but was still good.
Storyline... the story is good, but it has WAAAAAAAAY to many huge twists and turns in it for its own good. First you're out to kill the Black Monster, then out to stop Dart's father, then only to realize that your companion, Rose, IS the Black Monster, then when you do encounter Dart's father, Zeig, and beat him, you realize that the real threat is a guy that you only heard about briefly, if you even remember him in the first place. Unless you keep up on everything going on, you'll never understand what's going on.
There are more bosses than there are normal enemies. If I was to list every boss there is, I'd be here forever because the list is LONG. This is the only game where there are more bosses than normal enemies that I've ever witnessed.
And last of all... the dragons. When you think of dragons, you tend to think of a huge, winged, powerful, majestic reptile that can spew... well, whatever it wants to spew. And this game heavily involves dragons. Well, guess what? The dragons aren't exactly what you expect them to look like. They are everything you DON'T expect them to look like. With features that no dragon would ever be expected to have... like built-in cannons, for example. The fire dragon that Dart can summon as a Lvl. 5 Dragoon... has six eyes, quite a few wings, and looks like something out of a sci-fi movie. And that's just one type of dragon. All the dragons look like aliens and have absolutely no resemblance to dragons at all. The Divine Dragon has seven or eight eyes, one huge eye in the center, and seven wings (looks like he lost one though... you'd understand if you saw his back.) The dragon is also equipped with a cannon on his back and something that looks like missiles that can fire out of his body. They look TERRIBLE!!!
Now, the way I have talked, you'd think it's a bad game, but it's really not. It's good, but not great.
