I have never played any of the games in this series, i'm a total Noob when it comes to Dragon Quest. This game is fantastic and worth your time.
With the trend of modern games loaded with super, turbo, maximum, ultimate deluxe editions and so forth, season passes, coins, space bucks, gems, silver and the other hundred micro transactions that they add on. its sad to say that its a rarity to find a game that has so much content with no additional money needed.
I have put in 90+ hours and i have still not fully finished the game. The game has a wounder full rich story, a wonderful art style by Akira Toriyama (creator of Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z) and tons of items, costumes, weapons and customisation.
It's a story base RPG, so if you don't like RPG's then you might not like this. There is a free demo on the Switch store so you can try it for free to see if you like it. That's how i tried this out, liked it and made the purchase.
Content wise, it is exactly what you'd expect from a JRPG. It has all the cliche things that make or break a JRPG but nothing completely over the top and certainly suitable for western audiences. I've found the lore and world building aspect of the game fantastic and gripping. I never played a DQ game before, I am now a fan.
Levelling up can be a bit of a grind as your character becomes stronger but the game allows you to "auto" battle with a very intelligent A.I. system selecting the moves each character of your party makes and provides the ability to speed up combat if you wish. You can walk up to an enemy and let the game take over from there.
If you're looking for a time sink which offers a great story, performance and more importantly reward a 3rd party studio for taking pride in porting a game to Switch. This is it!
It is nice to see a studio take pride in its product and give the consumer a near perfect port. It is the usual JRPG Fantasy tripe, an unnamed protagonist who discovers he is not only an orphaned prince but also the luminary, a magical individual who is responsible for defeating darkness and protecting the land. You are hunted very early on, as you traverse the land you will engage fantastical creatures, meet new people who will accompany you on you're journey and discover who you are. Again, if you enjoy JRPG'S, this is an imperative purchase and if it was developed by Nintendo this would be considered one of the best games on the Switch.
This game is NOT like that at all. It's fun, it's charming, funny and very very well put together. You'd think that from the cartoony graphics it's going to be visually basic like a lot of lower budget JRPGs being churned out. Instead, it feels incredibly high budget with fully animated, realistic movements. Unlike the stiff, tanky animations you might see in a game by Nihon Falcom.
You can have the full experience of the game (in my opinion) within 80 hours of gameplay, or continue with the epilogue to add another 50 hours (or so I hear). I personally liked how the game ended after 80 hours so did not continue to play, but enjoyed my experience so much that I bought this again for my young nephew. I felt that he should experience something great like this in his youth, so that his only experience of gaming isn't just Brain Training, Animal Crossing and Mario Kart.
