    Other than that, Dragon Quest Builders 2 is a masterpiece. No joke. If automation was to take my job right now, at least I’d have something to lose myself in during these long summer months.

    Playing Dragon Quest Builders 2 is just as fun, if not more fun than the first one.

    Dragon Quest Time Devourer is back! A full-fledged JRPG with plenty of Minecraft elements comes as a ridiculously huge and open sandbox world. If there is a single element of the game that catches your eye, the bet is - you would enjoy it. Because, Dragon Quest Builders 2 is a monster of a game, only one with enough spare time will manage to explore it in a full capacity.

    It would have been nice to see Dragon Quest Builders 2 have a greater emphasis on non-linear progression or a less initially sparse world, but it successfully iterates on the original by streamlining its systems and mechanics without trivializing them, creating an endlessly endearing game brimming with simple, unadulterated pleasures.

    Dragon Quest Builders 2 takes what was great about the first game and expands on it meaningfully, focusing on community development and large-scale building. While the combat is less-than-stellar, the overall result is a more unique experience that offers much to work with on the Isle of Awakening.

    Dragon Quest Builders 2 is a light fare that provides hours of fun, a palate cleanser to more arduous experiences that is much deeper than it may at first appear.

    I had a really good time traveling through the world that has been brought to life within Dragon Quest Builders 2. If you’re looking for a good game that has plenty of content to keep you logging in every day, then this is one title you’ll want to check out.

    Amazing building system with a lot of explore and to do. The first part of the game is slow but it gets continuously better. Dialogue is aAmazing building system with a lot of explore and to do. The first part of the game is slow but it gets continuously better. Dialogue is a massive slog, but can be skimmed through to get the gist of things. Controls are not perfect but you do get used to them. The thing that makes this game shine is the exploration, gathering, and building, which are fantastic. There's an insane amount of customization, and managing your citizens within your buildings/towns is the icing on the cake. Definitely one of the best implementations of gathering/building (Minecraft/Lego style) to date.

    I'm normally a handheld guy but I recommend this one on PS4 as the performance on Switch is pretty bad.

    For me is the best building game of all time. It still has less to do than minecraft but the graphics do their job.

    Game is kinda fun in the first and second island and feels like the gameplay is building up to something, but the game falls completely flatGame is kinda fun in the first and second island and feels like the gameplay is building up to something, but the game falls completely flat on itself on the third island where the protagonist is showed as a gutless coward who can't even defend his friend, it's so disgusting you can't do anything and then you're forced to take back the dudes from that island back. I deleted the game at this point, really bad story telling and lazy gameplay design that builds up to nothing. Did you have fun in dragon quest games getting op rewards from mini medals? Here you get cosmetics and that's it. You can't even use magic and you're limited to 2 specials abilities during the whole game. Expand
