by Riaa AWESOME!!!! CAN'T WAIT
Have been a big fan of DQ since the PS2 version came out. My son had gotten for Xmas that yr. He really didn't like it but I LOVED IT!! I but the game before he did & I won't let him trade it in for credit w/ the big strategy guide. I've been hooked since then. I have played every verision since than for the DS. I still have the original Dragon Warrior 3 game still.. to play just for fun, along with V & IX. I'm reading that the CASINOS ARE BACK! Missed that in the last installment. Also hoping that there is more than 1 save allotment. Missed that for when you want to try different things. My son is buying this for my birthday (48 yrs) which is a wk after the release. WHAT A GOOD SON I HAVE, LUCKY ME.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Tolu You have to get this game !
I just got this game today of course i pre-orded and got that slime plushie i have never played a dragon quest game before although i am a rpg fan i am used to the likes of final fantasy,golden sun,kingdom hearts and zelda. My crazy friends decided to smoke me up as a introduction ceremony to dragons quest lol. The sound effects i can't even call it that instead the wonderful melody played at the beginning instantaneously sucked me in, The graphics where amazing the ingenious use of the top screen blew me away i only bought a ds to play golden sun dark dawn but this was something else. The controls are wonderful the use of the L and R button change the landscape and view of people given it a sort of 3-D feeling . The controls are crisp and smooth and the battle system is something i'm used to as an rpg gamer although in this game it is spectacular as the monster are animated i want to play more now just talking about it in fact i'm gonna have to tell the leader of my clan on black ops to not expect me to be on live for a while. If you are thinking of buying this game trust me and get it you won't be disappointed.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Taicho13 People are Under-rating Dragon Quest VI
As I've said with the title. Too many people are under-rating this game! Dragon Quest VI is AMAZING! Yeah, it's a little tough until you get the hang of it, but it's system is really rewarding. There are 18 total playable characters. I'm not sure how many you are able to keep in your party at one time, but the others will stay at a place called Patty's Party Planning Place and are available for your immediate use at any time. There are jobs you can choose for your characters, too where you will learn useful skills and spells. And mastering these jobs will lead you to secondary jobs and mastering secondary jobs will lead you to Ultimate job(s). I say job(s) because I think there's only one in this game, Hero. The story is riveting, the music is Godly, I love all the charaters, so many things that make this game wonderful that people just overlook. If you're looking for a game that you can just rush through in like 10 hours and you're not a true person who appreciates an RPG, don't buy this. If you know how to truly appreciate an RPG this is a wonderful buy. It's my favorite Dragon Quest game out of the ones I've played (4 through 9)
Rated 1 out of 10 by iceman420 sucks
this game is so not what i expected i had just started playing this game the next day after a finished with dragon quest ix for a newer game the graphics totally sucked.The detail in the previous game was much better and not only that but the story and direction were better to i hope you like to wander around alot cause thats all youll do and the random battles dont help much youll spend most of your time lost trying to figure out what to do next to progress the story and not only that you cant see your character fighting or change appearance with new equipment that was kind of the fun part i would not reccommed this title to anyone hopefully they make a sequel to the last one sorry for any spoilers but after i finished the last dragon quest starry skies it said to b continued who knows maybe they'll make a sequel i really hope they will
Rated 6 out of 10 by jbl8199 Boring, but good for DQ fans
If your a fan of DQ games then you will probably like this one, if not then don't bother buying this one. There is absolutely NO character development or storyline whatsoever in this game. Not to mention the random encounters were a little long and drawn out. Your basically just going from point A to point B and fighting enemies here and there with a boss thrown in every once in a while. I don't know about anyone else, but when I play an RPG, I like there to be some kind of story with character development, but this one just falls short in that category. I'd recommend playing Final Fantasy if your looking for a good story based RPG.
Rated 9 out of 10 by TabbyD Another outstanding entry in Dragon Quest series
The gameplay is basically identical to the remakes of Dragon Quest 4 and 5 for the DS, and no Dragon Quest fan should miss it. If you liked 4 and 5 you'll love this, but it's not the same game all over again. You'll discover a whole new story, new characters, tons of new monsters, and new slimes. Things unique to this entry include the ability to recruit and battle with a variety of different slimes, a "style" stat, and two large world maps (a real world and a sort of dream world) that are both available from the beginning of the game and interconnected. Plus a flying bed! The new touch-based mini-games are gimmicky, shallow, and frustratingly hard to control. Cute, but why bother doing it at all if you can't come up with some fun touch-based games? How about a touch-based pixel art editor that lets you open and play with all the game sprites/create new art/and trade with friends via wifi and wireless? How about some touch-based rocket slime action? They probably could have fit the entire DS or GBA Rocket Slime game onto the card as a bonus. However, the core game is excellent. If you're interested in playing this, get it NOW. There have been unexplained (as of yet) issues with people getting their orders and the rumor is that it's a limited production run. If you don't want to have to pay $50 for it used (as you have to do with Dragon Quest 5 now) order it today or pick it up if you see it on a store shelf. Same goes for the strategy guide.
Rated 9 out of 10 by derfman The Zenithia Trilogy Ends Here.
As many people don't know, DQ4, DQ5, and DQ6 were never released in North America. They were made as a series called the Zenithia Trilogy, which focuses on the city of Zenithia floating in the sky. If you played DQ9, but not these three then I would suggest you rent them to see if you would like them. The way the game is presented is very retro-rpg but the mechanics work well in such a way that the story seamlessly blends with the action. Any DQ fan would love to have these undiscovered treasures in their game vault. Final Score: 9/10
Rated 7 out of 10 by DynamiteDude WAIT! DON'T BUY!
Okay, first of, I like it, but I still consider it to be a waste of $$$. I would've rather gotten (See list below of better games) Pokemon Black and White (RPG), Animal Crossing: Wild World (SIM), Dragon Quest 9 (RPG), Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks (ACTION RPG; VERY INTENSE), Super Scribblenauts (STRGY). I do think it's a good game, but graphics are kinda suckish, 2D compared to 9, where they're 3D (Not 3DS 3D). I just kinda think I need to give my grandma her money back...Don't buy unless you're a DQ fan...
Rated 10 out of 10 by SpiderSword I Loved This Game
I loved this game so much. Altohugh it wasn't as technologically advanced as the last game, it's old style gameplay was amazing. I couldn't put this game down. There were so many twists in the story, and so many places with so many people. This game was enchanting. I enjoyed the old-time graphics, and the sounds were amazing. The gameplay was even better, and the lasting appeal of after-story gameplay is almost as good. There is no reason not to get this game if you like RPGs.
Rated 0 out of 10 by vulzam YAY!
I'm excited for this one, I've been waiting for a remake of this one for awhile, waiting even longer for VII even though this actually shows a scene that looks like its from VII (the boat)...Definitely preordering this and will be on the lookout for VII. Kinda don't like how I feel like I'm playing as a character from DBZGT thrown into the world of RPG, but oh well, I'm still going to play it. Can't come fast enough!
