    While, it's not flawless, this is a great addition to the DQ series. It combines my two favorite genres in one, On-rails action and traditional RPG. The combo works wonders, it's just simply too fun, slicing enemies about, and leveling up to tackle any problem. The only real complaint I have, is that sometimes the controls don't work to their fullest. Still, this is my While, it's not flawless, this is a great addition to the DQ series.

    IT bring something NEW!!! and it is fun in every standard. The total content ashould last about 25-30 hours of gameplay and it has seriously good re-play value. DQS is on par with the best Wii games you can buy. This is the type of game the Wii was built for and is something that can only be delivered with the Wii.

  1. A simple but fun on-rails slasher. [May 2008, p.84]

    It isn’t the prettiest title for the Wii, but if RPGs tickle your fancy, it’s still worth a try.
  3. If you're looking for an on-rails slasher that is good for 7-10 hours, you will probably enjoy this title. If you’re looking for a full-fledged RPG experience, however, you’re better off looking elsewhere.
