    This is the best RPG I've played this year, bar none, and as such I recommend it to anyone and everyone. The story sucks you in, the game looks beautiful and sounds amazing, and with hours and hours of content to go at, there isn't a mark against it. It’s a rare thing, but this is as close to a perfect game as you’re going to get.

    Dragon Quest XI Definitive Edition makes one of the most joyous and downright wonderful gaming experiences of all time even better. It's a game unashamed to be a video game, and it's one that embraces its roots in a charming, beautiful way. It's unashamedly jolly and light, but most importantly, it's comforting.

    Dragon Quest XI is the debut of the saga on Xbox, and does so in the best possible way. One of the best JRPGs of the last years arrives to Microsoft consoles with a Definitive Edition that suffers from some graphic problems but is still essential.

    One of the best RPGs of the decade arrives on new platforms with the definitive edition. It keeps some of the technical sacrifices of the Switch version, but they can’t take away the greatness of this adventure.

    Dragon Quest XI S - Definitive Edition is a porting from Switch that trades a slight visual downgrade for a rich amount of added content.

    A great JRPG you should play if you would like to live a great and classic adventure. Unfortunately, this edition is a graphic port from Nintendo Switch, so it doesn't shine like the original release.

    Oh mais qu’est-ce donc… une japoniaiserie bien niaise de chez **** le responsable des Final Fientasy ! mais celle-ci comme toutes les autresOh mais qu’est-ce donc… une japoniaiserie bien niaise de chez **** le responsable des Final Fientasy ! mais celle-ci comme toutes les autres est surtout démoulée par un développeur dédié à cette franchise de japoniaiseries bien niaises ! c’est leur boulot de boulotter ce genre de daubes depuis nombre d’années !

    Bizarrement, ça se retrouve aussi sur Xbox alors qu’on avait rien demandé… ils auraient mieux fait de garder leurs étrons en guimauve 256 couleurs pour eux, pour les soniais et les nintendaubeux réunis ! Quoi qu’il en soit, on a ici la même grenadine (aromatisée au melon) que d’habitude et c’est -comme d’habitude- tellement niais qu’on sent en direct nos neurones se liquéfier et dégouliner par les oreilles !

    La « musique » (une torture), les voix (gnééééé) les dialogues eux-mêmes (niiiiéééé) l’espèce d’histoire à l’eau de rose (aromatisée au melon), le « héros » qui a l’air con et constipé (et qui reste muet), les compagnons (niaaaiiiseux) à souhait, les combats au tour par tour et par n’importe lequel, du tour par tour en solde à deux centimes de yen d’occasion recyclé et enfin, comme de bien entendu, l’ennui général qui s’en dégage, la torpeur qui vous envahit, puis le coma pas ludique cérébral !

    Quelle putain d’horreur, ce soit-disant « jeu de rôle » ! un jeu rôle, ça, ce putain de couloir ? et en plus, il faut prier devant la « statue » quand tu trouves un feu de camp pour simplement… sauvegarder, putain ! non mais halte au sketch, ouvrez grand la poubelle et balancez cette infamie ! Et jetez la clé.
