This was on my get it list for this year; I preordered it and am not sorry. It's been great so far; this isn't my first Dragon Quest, but it might..just might..be the first one other than Dragon Quest 1 that I actually finished.

So! Anyone else playing the first Dragon Quest to come out in English in quite a while?

I've yet to play it and planned to get it on release, but since I recently moved and started to study for my Masters degree, I decided that I'd wait for a price drop. Plus, I saw a lot of reviews that said "yeah, it's a good game, but doesn't re-invent anything" and while I like the Dragon Quest atmosphere and gameplay, I always found the story to be rather lackluster (played 8, 9 and Monsters Joker), so I rarely go full price for it. What do you think of the story, is it good?

Veevee; I think it's decent to pretty good, considering. We got a hero saving the world thing but with a twist, he's a hunted man because some folks think he is evil. (which he isn't) I won't say more than that; can't without getting into spoiler territory!

As for nothing new; Actually they usually save the innovations for Final Fantasy, not Dragon Warrior/Quest. Don't quote me on this, but I understand that the JP Dragon Warrior fans would get very angry if the battle system/formula got changed TOO much. (Forget where I saw that) But in a way, if you want a old skool RPG; that's part of its charm. I've been having a blast.

I love Dragon Quest games! And this game is just perfection. I love how you can just ride around on a horse!


I know that it's a classic DQ trope, but I think it's time for the Hero to have a voice and personality. There are some moments that would have been more solid if the MC had the freedom to be something...

I'm loving it too Pokie~!

I also read one review that mentioned they DID change the formula for after you beat the final boss. So stick around a bit after! I sure mean to and I think I'm like..halfway though the game now? I can't wait to find out what they did..

I'll buy it eventually, I love Dragon Quest and from what little I've seen this one will be no exception. Not too long ago I decided to go through the original trilogy since I had never played those ones, and I beat the first one and I'm allllllmost done with 2.
