Final Fantasy Dissidia Review
Dissidia Final Fantasy is yet another master piece of Japanese Entertainment
Company packed on UMD with interesting features like fantastic visuals; range of
game modes and by plenty of un-lockable rewards. Dissidia is the dream of Final
fantasy series come true and is the kind of game which will bring the Franchise
buffs dizzy. This addictive and exuberant game has flashy fight sequences and
amazing drama of battles. The camera foibles troubles certain fight sequences
and the narrative is not that good to match the series which is popular for best
storytelling and plot. But Dissidia balances it with other features like different
mode of play and excellent rewards at end of every mission. The heroes of the
Final Fantasy series from 1 to 10 are present in this game, and whenever there
is chaos, these 10 super heroes fight their ten evil rivals to save the world in this
interesting role-playing game.
Dissidia Final Fantasy gives you the chance to encounter your previous rivals in
battlefield which can lead to strange possibility. The natural choices in the game
are Jecht Vs Tidus and Sephiroth Vs Cloud but you can also combine Ultimecia against Bartz or Golbez against Squall or any combination as you like.
The story mode of Dissidia is rammed with many unlikely scenarios and the
tale they share is unsatisfying mess of obvious banalities and poor voice acting,
denudating every character to least essentials. You can follow every hero while
they take their parallel journeys involved in searching for Cosmos-curing crystals.
The consequence of this story is expressed through an extra story mode named
Shade impulse, where you can select any playable hero for every chapter as you
wish. There is not an engaging story, but the more you play the game, the more
scenarios you can come across. Though the story is not exciting, the combat
sequences and role playing can keep you busy with the game and there is a
constant flow of rewards which makes you addictive. The rewards are plenty like
a powerful sword for Cloud, multiplayer fighting arenas, enhancements like new
voice samples for characters etc.
Along with flow of rewards, the fighting system is interesting with dynamic and
tense battles. The power of player is indicated through bravery points and you
can get more bravery points from your opponents by attacking them. If you
bravery points are high, you can cause more damage to opponents with normal
attack and this makes it interesting.
All battle arenas are huge and provide the necessary freedom of movement
required for clashes on air and above the ground. Every player has unique
attacking style and it could be on land or while hovering in air. The EX attacks
forms the amazing climax during clashes along with extravagant and bright
visuals. The cinematic camera adds further beauty to visual drama of battles in
Dissida Finaly fantasy.
You cannot find such wide range of characters in traditional role playing games
and you will be inspired to fight against various opponents. There are various
modes of play like the Arcade, story mode and Duel Colosseum mode. The
Arcade mode takes you series of opponents in different sub levels and story
mode allows you to move battle pieces across grid and players will fight against
each other. In the Duel Colosseum mode, you shuffle different cards for earning
equipment upgrades and additional rewards. You can also fight duels against
other players and AI (Artificial Intelligence) opponents.
Though Dissidia does not provide an option for online game play, you can
fight with others in ad hoc mode with characters that you have customized
and leveled. Also, you can fight with one another in Arcade mode where both
players will have equal powers. You will observe small amount of lags during
the beginning of the combats and during burst attacks but during fighting, it will
be smooth and coherent. The voice acting is not impressive as the voice tracks
are poorly paced which is a downside of this rich multiplayer game. But the
soundtrack is phenomenal with stunning original tunes from previous games
which were appreciated by all players.
Dissidia Final Fantasy is well-known for slick and smooth game play with dynamic
battle scenes, various game modes, pre-rendered cinematic cut scenes and
plenty of rewards in each level. The sound effects are boisterous and animations
are detailed which makes the fight scenes realistic. Dissidia Final Fantasy provides
a unique gaming experience with amazing feature set and engaging game play.
It allows you to save battle replays which can be exported as video files after
editing. Dissida differs from other action games due to its myriad customization
options and remarkable RPG components. Players can tweak the characters as
per their wish which makes it interesting for a fighting game
