|Dart, a brave and loyal warrior swordsman, has sworn to avenge the death of his parents by destroying the mysterious black monster. For unknown reasons, the Sandora Empire burns down his village and imprisons his childhood friend, Shana. Straight away Dart sets out on a journey to rescue her, but Shana's kidnapping is merely the tip of the iceberg of a much grander, more sinister plot about ancient spiritual powers and the destruction of the human race.
Uncover the dark secrets of dragons, dragoons, and magic in the land of Endiness in "The Legend of Dragoon." This Sony PlayStation 1 roleplaying game spans an epic adventure bringing together a group of heroes with the sacred, hidden legend of a dragoon. The heroes, including Dart, Shana, Lavitz, Rose, and Kongol, must confront their own personal pain and political strife to save the world. Now you can experience one of the greatest classic dragon games for the PS1.
This epic RPG includes four discs and lets you take on the role of Dart, a warrior returning to his home village. The village was sacked, and his dear friend Shana was kidnapped. However, these horrific events are only the tip of the game's intricately layered plot. You control Dart on his journey through Endiness, where he meets with Rose, a taciturn, battle-hardened woman with a mysterious past. Along the way they recover Shana, meet with the war hero Lavitz, and encounter Kongol, a silent, strong warrior of few words.
Up to eight heroes can join Dart on his adventures across Endiness, all of whom are able to become Dragoons.The game adds a new twist on turn-based combat for role-playing games and boss battles. When you choose to attack, you can chain combos together by hitting "X" at the right moment. Each team member has different attack abilities and will call out the name of the attack if the player successfully completes the chain. This attack mechanic is designed for intense play and quicktime events, and it keeps you on the edge of your seat in each battle.Battles against bosses and normal enemies are won with weapons or magic. These are available only to a character who has transformed into a Dragoon.
Your dragon weapons increase in strength and attack power as you purchase new swords, axes, and bows/arrows from merchants to take on a boss or cut through weaker enemies. Your magical skills increase with experience and are drawn from the four elements of wind, water, fire, and earth. Each character has their own different style of magic. For example, Rose uses dark black magic, and Dart has fire skills. Each disc offers a new section of the world to explore and more lives to save on your quest for personal vengeance.Each boss you encounter has their own dark ambitions for Endiness, and some are even gifted with the powers of a Dragoon themselves.
The Legend of Dragoon is a Japanese-style RPG, visually reminiscent of Final Fantasy VII (pre-rendered backgrounds, 3D characters and battle scenes, CG animations to advance the story). Battle mechanics follow the traditional turn-based prototype, with a few additions such as critical attacks dependent on precise timing, and "dragoon" transformations, which allow access to powerful techniques. Game progression is largely linear, with the "world map" replaced by locations represented as connected dots.
