Rated 0 out of 10 by Xavier Saint Far And Away The Most Underrated RPG Of All Time
Dragon Quest/Warrior IV is a gem that everyone missed. Coming out late in the NES cycle while games like Final Fantasy II (IV) were hitting the SNES, DQ/W IV got overlooked by a good majority of the North American RPG fan community. This is far and away my favorite game on NES and will look great on DS. Never before had you seen a chapter system. 5 unique chapters for the game. The first 4 covering an individual hero or set of heroes known as the Chosen Ones. Each group dealing with their own individual causing only to see a link between all the happenings in the world and then culminating in a great uniting chapter to face the ultimate evil that threatens the world. This game made no bones about character deaths or how horrible conditions were in villages embattled by monsters. Whether it was deadly conditions at a mine town, political intrigue about the current king of the land or the growing need to war with a neighboring kingdom, intrigue was the name of the game. Pick up this game and you won't regret it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by lb19 such a great game
I never played the original dragon quest games but from this game right here I would highly recommend this game to everyone. This game was so well planned out and the storyline and the characters how the story is split up into 5 parts and the characters all come together. I have been playing this game non stop since I got it last week. I got it used with a discount so I got it for around 30 bucks but I would have payed the full forty otherwise. The controls are good and easy to use but I wish the ds touch screen would have been used at all because it's no use at all in this game. Also the music is real good too and it gets stuck in your head, ha-ha. Overall I would grade this game a solid A because of the depth of the story and how the game is played and I would highly recommend this game to anyone who loves RPG's.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Alcurad_666 Another good game for the DS
First off all I have to say is this game is great, I never really had a chance to play it on the NES when it came out because I did not own one lol. With all that said there are a few things that bug me about the game and that is the translation is passable at best, I mean the misspelled organize with organize and armor with armor and that is just a few examples. The other thing is they took out the neatest feature witch is team chat, it is hard to explain but the only way I can is if you played Tales of Symphonia or The abyss and ever so often you would press select for extra dialogue with characters witch expanded so much with the other characters and depth as well. With all this said it is still a very good game and if you're a Dragon Quest fan like I am you will love the game.
Rated 0 out of 10 Great Game
I have this on the original 8 bit nintendo and still play through it about once a year. The updated graphics of the DS port makes me very excited. I really enjoy the aspect of this game where you travel thought the game and the first few chapters are played throug as seperate groups with the hero or heroin not being introduced to chapter 5 if i remember correctly. Instead the first 4 chapters intorduce you to the backstory of each of the other characters that will join the hero in his final journy. This game is well thought out and for those who may have missed it on the nintendo I would very highly recomend this game.
Rated 0 out of 10 looks great
This is one of the best rpg's ever made and I cannot wait for it to come out. I like it how the game is actually going to use both of the screens while you are playing the game, plus it will have an additional chapter from the original for NES. The dragon warrior series is very simple to understand how they work so anyone will be able to play them. If you are thinking about purchasing this when it comes out, do it, because you will not regret it. I just bought a DS for this game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by VGSLOKI Epic RPG for DS
I have been a RPG fan dating back to the early 80's. If you are a true RPG genre player you must buy this game! This is the first remake to reach the USA shores regarding the Dragon Quest series or known in the US as Dragon Warrior. Dragon Quest IV DS is a remake of the original game for the Nintendo NES Dragon Warrior IV. In Japan (Dragon Quest as it's called in Japan) - did see a reprise for the Super Famicom for Dragon Quest I, II, in one Cartridge & Dragon Quest III Reprise. Dragon Quest IV did not appear on the Super Famicom in Japan. Dragon Quest V, and VI did however make it to the Super Famicom in Japan. I have played the Dragon Quest IV Japan version and the USA Version. I have played them entirely from start to finish. The Japanese version and USA version are the same. It's nice to see that Square-Enix kept the game in conjunction between the US version and Japanese version. For the very first time Dragon Quest IV - V - & VI will be revised for USA RPG players. I would recommend the Dragon Quest IV - V - & VI to any DS RPG fan. My personal opinion - the Dragon Quest series are far more dynamic fighting in the 3D perspective. It's about time the USA players can enjoy the Dragon Quest series for the DS. Final Fantasy I - II - IV & VII has been the only other RPG to keep up with Dragon Quest games in my RPG book. I really hope to see more Dragon Quest games make it to the USA! I hope that Square-Enix in the USA will do a remake of the Dragon Quest III reprise Super Famicom edition for the Sony PSP! If you like the good old days of RPG nostalgia - buy DRAGON QUEST IV for the Nintendo DS!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Snivee People are Under Rating Dragon Quest IV
People who are giving a 7 or under on a scale through 1-10 just DON"T get the point.The game is a true clasic that stands out on it's own. I played this game for 3 months and I'm still not done beating the main story. The 5 chapers makes the game like 5 different video games combind into one epic most-get RPG.
Rated 0 out of 10 by wazzitoyah Probably good
I've never tried any of the Dragon Quest games in the series but this one caught my attention. I've always tried to find a good, decent, action-adventure type game that is fun, long, and has a good storyline, but never found anything interesting. I hope this game meets my standards.
Rated 8 out of 10 by pallymaster Has its high points
fun game was really disappointed with the lack of depth of story, even though they go into backgrounds of the individual characters which was okay but still lacked depth. Overall its dragon quest so its a good game though
Rated 0 out of 10 by Zombie_Punk About time.
I remember a while back when I bought Dragon Warrior 7 for the Playstation, they had an ad for this, but it never made it, well now it is and I'm as happy as ever and so should the rest of you Dragon Quest fans out there.
