Game Informer Rating:

Rated 7.5 out of 10 by Game Informer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Among the best of Dragon Quests. I must say, Dragon Quest 8 for the PS2 used to be my favorite Dragon Quest game. But this (DQ5) is right up there with it. This game spans three generations -- you start off a young kid following your dad, then your older, and then your older yet, married, and leading your own kids. Masterpiece in storytelling. And it looks even better on the 3DS XL.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BY FAR THE GREATEST GAME I HAVE EVER PLAYED!!! Ive been a Dragon Quest fan for as long as i can remember but non of the Dragon Quest games by far came close to being as fun as this one, with its great graphics, standard rpg turn based battle system, to its fantastic, one of a kind story line. its my favorite Dragon Quest, my favorite RPG, and even be my favorite game of all time. So this fantastic remake for the DS is just stunning to say the least and i would recommend this title to all RPG fans new and old.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's that good! As you've read in the headline, it is that good. I'm not much of an RPG guy, not like i was in the past. Today i need a game that can keep me on edge. Games like DMC, God of War, and the recently released, Bayonetta. But like i mentioned i was a fan of the RPG genre. After going through several "Good RPGs" like Tales of Vesperia and ironically Dragon quest 8, none of them managed to hold my attention. I decided to give this one a try. After the first few hours, my love for RPGs that i've lost in past came back to me with a vengance. DQ5 has a great cast of characters that reel you in with their trials and tribulations especially the Hero, which is you. You'll practially play him from child through even marriage, hence the title, "Hand of the Heavenly Bride". The story itself is jam packed with plot twists and enough emotional moments that it'll make you weep for our hero. The story is really something else. My petpeeve with most RPGs are the always annoying random battles. Fortunately enough, the battles in DQ9 move at such a quick pace that it's hardly ever boring, although it still can get annoying when your trying to conserve your items for the boss. Speaking of which, the bosses don't give you too much difficulty save for the last 4 boss fights, but even then they arent too hard. Aside from the main quest you can also train monsters to fight for you in a pokemon kind of way. Training certain mobs grant you several handy spells like multiheal, which helps alot for the final boss. Theres also the casino where you can spend the coins you've earn for special weapons and armor, a knick knack museum to store your special items, and an extra dungeon with an extra boss. Yes, this game is worth your **$. i would pay the price of 1 PS3 game for this baby. DQ5 is amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must get for the DS!! If you're not a huge RPG fan you can stop reading here. But chances are if you stumbled onto this page, you are a fan, and therefore would likely enjoy this game. After seeing the beloved Chrono Trigger game hit the DS, I was extremely happy to see DQ5 also hit the DS shortly after. Long story short - this game will eat up a lot of your time. Forget the fact there's an extra dungeon included in this game, but it's also got so many good plot twists and tons of mini games and sidequests that it will keep you busy for a substantial amount of time. For those who played DQ games before, this game will be very familiar to you. For those of you who haven't, you'll find a deep game with a solid battle system, intuitive controls, very good graphics and gameplay. Most importantly you will find a storyline that will keep you hooked for a long time. I won't spoil the twists, but let's just say it will keep you motivated for some time to find out "what's next." This game is a must get for DQ fans, and RPG fans alike. I really can't see any major flaws in this game, except that it uses very little of the stylus. But that's just nitpicking. Overall it's a solid port and it's always great for new people to experience what is one of the most popular and beloved titles in the DQ series. I'd urge anybody who likes RPGs or monster collecting to get this game.
