    Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age tells a captivating tale of a hunted hero and is the long-awaited role-playing game from series creator Yuji Horii, character designer Akira Toriyama and composer Koichi Sugiyama.

    While it is the eleventh mainline entry in the critically acclaimed series, Dragon Quest XI is a completely standalone experience that features entirely new characters, a beautifully detailed world, finely tuned turn-based combat, and an immersive story that will appeal to long-time fans and franchise newcomers alike.

    A young man, about to participate in his village's coming of age ceremony, travels to a Sacred Stone alongside his childhood friend. After a series of unexpected events, this intrepid adventurer learns he is the reincarnation of a legendary hero from a forgotten age. The young hero sets forth into an unknown world on a journey to unravel the mystery of his past... but the welcome he receives is far from warm. Upon revealing his identity to the King, the hero is branded as "The Dark spawn" and hunted by a relentless army. Fleeing from his pursuers, the hero assembles a band of endearing adventurers who believe he is actually The Luminary reborn. The hero and his newfound companions embark on a quest that will take them across continents and over vast oceans as they learn of an ominous threat facing the world.

    Dragon Quest 11 successfully counts on traditional JRPG virtues in a contemporary look, becoming the best current title of the genre.

    There’s some good stuff in Strange Brigade, such as its unique visual style and its deliberate kitsch narration. But if you’re used to Horde-type games, it won’t be challenging and fresh enough to entertain you.

    A JRPG for people who haven’t played one in a while, basically. Well-made, but disappointingly safe.

Son univers, peuplé de monstres colorés - et bien plus intéressants que les personnages principaux - en met plein la vue. Une intrigue à la qualité en dent de scie et quelques passages décevants desservent parfois cet épisode, mais dans l'ensemble, des mécaniques de gameplay bien menées permettent à ce Dragon Quest de se placer parmi les meilleurs JRPG récents. Dragon Quest XI est un RPG « traditionnel » aussi massique que magistral, qui se concentre avant tout sur ses mécaniques de combat, de loot et d'exploration, plutôt que sur son histoire. Expand
