    Great strategy game based on the Dragon Quest series. It even has online multiplayer so it's a great value for $5.

    Dragon Quest Wars may not offer the kind of epically lengthy role-playing experience that most gamers would commonly associate with its brand, but what it does offer is superb.
  2. If you can somehow curb your expectations of Dragon Quest Wars being a typical Dragon Quest-style RPG experience and accept it for the simple, yet enjoyable strategy title it is, then you're likely to find a very fulfilling and playable DSiWare title that will provide you with many hours of fun.

    With a simple concept, Dragon Quest Wars is a surprisingly deep turn-based strategy game, specially taking into account the prejudices about digital content.
