If you like classic JRPG's, you can't go wrong with this amazing remake of one of the historical landmarks of the genre. Square Enix did a great job by crafting a brilliant re-telling of one of the greatest and most amusing stories ever told in the videogame industry.
I never played the Ds version, butit is the same story as the Snes version, so, great story, miss games that had a actual good plot and characters, good music, and from ehat i remember, also had good imersity, but as all Rpg's, it sadly does not give us an option,we are allways forced to do some things even though we dont want to, but aside from that, i give this game a 10 ou of 10, i i could iwould give it an 11 but the maximum is 10
Dragon Quest 5 did something I really don’t see RPGs do, and yet it still was the same game from the same series I grew to love. Aside from a few hand selected problems, DQ5 charmed me with its life growing story, interesting characters, and inspiring monster/ally system.
A genre classic. Though its component pieces may be basic, they all conspire together to create an experience that’s the measure of anything to have come out of Square or Enix’s collective stable, and whether you’re a veteran of the series or a debutant, this is a slice of indisputable role-playing perfection - and one of the greatest RPGs the DS has to offer.
This game takes what it needs to become one of the greatest RPGs of the Dual Screen, with a superb story that pushes everything what we've seen so far beyond the limits. Its not the perfect Dragon Quest though,with too many combats and a weak monster system that still have to prove its real value. We'll be looking forward to DQVI.
Hand of the Heavenly Bride is a solid, old-school adventure with the same problems and delights that any title from the period has. If you’re supporter of the series or just a sucker for this type of action, then you probably won’t be disappointed. But for the rest of you, HotHB does nothing that will change your stubborn opinions.
One of my favorite JRPGs of all time! I love the story, the graphics, and the soundtrack. But above all else, I love how the combat makes you think. Some will argue that you hammer the A button repeatedly (probably true in the early parts of the game). But it felt like a good balance between using skills, buffs, de-buffs and items all in tandem, especially when taking on a major boss. Since completing this, I've beaten DQ8 and I'm currently working on DQ6, so clearly this game turned me into a fan of the series.
This game is a masterpiece, The music is amazing (sadly the music in this game is synthesized and not orchestrated because of stoarge limitations), The story is amazing and complex and deep with a lot of emotional moments (the best part of the game), The graphics are old but serviceable (the animations in battle look pretty good even today), The battle system while pretty basics requires strategy and the "Monster Taming" mechanic is very refreshing and gives a lot of options for you to make strategies for certain fights in the game. Overall a 10 out of 10 masterpiece.
I loved Dragon Quest 4, but i just couldn't bring myself to finish this one. It's just boring some how. The pacing, the areas, the fact that you have monsters as party members instead of characters. I just couldn't get excited once I became an adult. The childhood part where you go explore a haunted castle was great fun however.
