Dissadia Review

Review of Dissadia - PSP

It started with a game called Ehrgeiz... As shown above.

Ehrgiz is a Squaresoft fighter that went terribly bad. It was great that you could be heros/bad guys from the Final Fantasy franchise. This is the continuation of that almost... lacking the Terrible content for most part.

System: PSP
Rating: 9/10
Replay Value: High
Collection Recommendation: MUST Buy

What is it?
Dissadia is SquareSoft's version of a Fighter/RPG. This time starring the who whole cast of Final Fantasy Heros and their Arch Villains. This is both done in Story as well as Ad-Hoc VS with other players. If you like Final Fantasy and action games you'll quite possibly like this, those who don't like level repetition won't be so happy.

The controll in this game takes a minute to get used to. At first I thought it was going to be terrible but I quickly got a hold of it and it ended up being pretty epic. Some areas get brutal and take a bit to actually win at, but this dosen't seem to be an issue since if you did quit, you maintain the same level that you were at and every fight adds to your XP and Level.

I personally don't prefer it but there was also the option to turn your controls to those like FFX where you choose moves but its live. "Command Mode" as they call it.

The multi-player is cool for what I've seen of it. Unfortunately you have to find someone who has the game or battle player 'cards' which you do receive from the Moogles of the game but their crazy levels that are hard to even beat for awhile! Although it does come with cool features so that in the random chance that this game is really 'awesome' where you are you can walk around and when your PSP finds other PSPs that have the game running you'll swap cards!!

When is this supposed to happen though? I can't go ONLINE? What? That upset me.


This is interesting because the Online kinda impacts this. Being Ad-Hoc only, I play less.... Though the game play is fun enough to compell you to keep playing. I can especially see this if you have friends that play. Like the other Final Fantasy RPGs you have an ever expanding skill list of really nice moves. They add all kinds of stuff you can unlock, alternate outfits, weapons, extra skill days. Many battles are really EPIC and cool, they have glowing rails that you can ride on, this makes it even better, so it preforms like fights in Advert Children. Then to step that up to the next level you can Record fights in AVI so you can post them online! I haven't seen yet how far Characters go, but looks like you could keep playing for quite awhile. To build on all that they also set up a Calender for those skill days and your favorite day of the week which compound your earnings and experience. :D Sounds like enough if I don't time to play it, to do a couple battles on Saturday to make up for it. I only know one person who has it currenly but I want to see how battles go with other 'friend cards', for their supposed to adapt and fight similar to the person you achieved it from.

Drama Pieces

If you want to know what makes this 9/10 other than no ONLINE, it would be this. Do you want to see your favorite Final Fantasy characters sob, cry, and be depressed more than ever, this is your chance. I couldn't stand the Drama Peices... they looked great they just made nothing into drama and like other FF stories the story is hard to grasp. Really cheesy and annoying. They also take up alot of time... one being played every time you beat the game. (FROM FF1-FF12 - Twelve times!)
