Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies
my favorite DS game
When I bought my DS this game was the reason I got it, and it didn't disappoint at all!! I easily clocked in over a hundred hours playing this game & am still not done finishing it. There is just so much to do within the game, but my favorite aspect was the freedom you had to customize your partys equipment, appearance, gender ect. It is truly a unique RPG experience & one I would recommend to any RPG fan.
Buying it again!
I had this game and I ADORED it, but then my sister lost it for me along with Pokemon Heartgold. I was so angry at her, and I never bought either game again. Tomorrow I'm trading in seven games and this is going to be the FIRST thing I buy. I reached either Gleeba or Swinedimples (whichever is the later one) last time, but a save error set me back to the other one. So excited to get back!
Best Freaking DS GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This take dragon quest to a new step best ds i played its amazeing it just what i wanted hands down if you like rpg this is a must have
I have played this game for over twenty-four hours, and yet I still haven't come even close to beating it! The story is unique, and the gameplay itself is awesome. I often find myself grinding for hours just looking for stuff. A cool part of the game is that you can change your warrior into a mage if you want, and if any attributes stack between two classes you can continue it. JRPG's know what their doing, because I honestly can't find myself ever having played a bad one. This is a fantastic time killer and all in all a great game to just play when your bored. Don't think, just buy it!
A really good Dragon Quest
I love the ability to customize your character, and the armor actually changing their clothes look, and the very extensive amount of gameplay. The only downfall is that the game gets a bit slow at times, but the overall gameplay is great.
The game that made me re-love JRPG's
After reading about 20+ reviews and asking questions in various game forums, I finally decided to purchase this. I beat the Main story about a month ago and have yet to play the post game but I decided to write this review now.
This game is awesome. This is the game that made me re-love Rpg's and now I'm hooked on them.
Some people don't like the story, I like it a lot. I loved how each town had it's own issues and problems that you had to help with. It made the world feel like it was an actual place were people weren't just generic, but each town's citizen actually mattered some how.
The Battle system is awesome. Simple, and fast battles help this game move along at a good pace and is much appreciated. The music is pretty good. It's not Final Fantasy Quality but some of the songs are well done and some are just kind of ehh.
The graphics look real good for a DS game. I'm more into Art Style than actual graphics and the ART style they chose in this game is awesome.
90% of the time I knew exactly were to go and when I didn't I jumped on Gamefaqs for a few minutes to figure it out.
The Best part is probably the customization. I love being able to customize my game experience how I like. I didn't care that my other 3 characters didn't have a story, they were cool looking and that was good enough for me.
The characters all change looks depending on the gear you get so that is extra incentive to buy other gear/armor.
The money is not just flowing in this game everywhere so your weapons and armor purchases must be made wisely.
You can grind it you want and I found I had to here and there. I prefer to be slightly over lvl'd compared to under-leveled, so I did a bit of grinding where I may not have needed to.
The Main story took me 71 hours to beat. I know most people beat it in 30-45 hours but I loved this game so much I took my time with it. I went everywhere and anywhere I could just do experience everything about this.
Dragon Quest 9 is one of the best games I've ever played. I almost forgot to mention the Post-game content. There are tons of Dungeons/Grottoes to explore, each with their own Boss and drops at the end. I've actually only done one and was waiting to do the rest once I completed the Main story.
From what I hear I'll have another 200-400+ hours of game content and anywhere up to 700-1000 to fully complete everything in game.
That is just insane for a game that is priced at $18.00 used at GS.
If you even kind of like RPG's......Get this game.
This is one of the best games I've ever played :D
This game is one of the best games I've ever played. The story is fun and filled with twist. The fighting is fun with a bunch of weapons to choose from. The characters are realistic and nice looking. All the different outfits and armor are super fashionable. The villains are are cool and so are the good guys. This is the game that relay got me into RP games.
BEST ADVENTURE GAME EVER
I love this game, it is a lot of fun and allows me to explore different vocations. It is a very fun game and I would truly recomend this for anyone who is into adventure and challenge
Great game. Best rpg ever
If you have ever thought of getting this game but didnt, that is a bad choice. Good game and once you beat it the game gives you 20 new maps. each mounth the game has a new map based on that month.
My Favorite Game
This game is my favorite game. All I did was go to Gamestop, traded in a bunch of my old games, not knowing what game to get. Then, the salesperson suggested this game. I wasn't sure at first, then I tried it. Best game ever to me.
