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.

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.


The Legend of Dragoon PlayStation Nice effect - footprints on the sand
The Legend of Dragoon PlayStation This is the world map. It's horribly linear even by Japanese RPG standards
The Legend of Dragoon PlayStation The game's pre-rendered backgrounds offer some nice - if sterile and somewhat artificial - views
The Legend of Dragoon PlayStation Later in the game you'll be able to synchronize your dragon attacks. The screen morphs into this afterwards
