  1. The story and writing is so strong that I easily forgot about the archaic graphics and even more primitive battle engine.
  2. This is truly a 100-hour RPG. [Dec 2001, p.172]
  3. 87
    The fact that all 100+ hours of Dragon Warrior VII are so entertaining is a testament to the quality of the game that lies beneath the dated visuals and clunky presentation.
  4. Its overall story...is simply impossible to resist and the dungeon design is marvelous. [Feb 2002, p.60]
  5. The most old-school, hardcore RPG we’ve played in years…the new game’s scale is simply gargantuan. [Jan 2002, p.88]
  6. For serious RPG fans who couldn't care less about the Final Fantasy brand of flash, though, it's hard to envision a more appropriate game.
  7. The first 2 hours are some of the most boring hours you will ever play in a video game.
