If RPG gaming were a diet, Dragon Warrior 7 would be several truckloads of raw meat. It ain't pretty, but there is a lot of it and it sure does satisfy. It'll also give you a heart attack in large doses.
If you really go for the flavor of early-90s style graphics and gameplay, and if you have the patience of a rock, then by all means enter and be saved. As for us skeptics, it will take a lot more than nostalgia to win our faith.
Appearances can be deceiving, and if you can look pas DWVIIs vintage outer shell, youll find one of the deepest, most satisfying RPGs the PS1or any other console, for that matterhas yet seen. [Dec 2001, p.260]
