Dragon Quest VIII
One of my favorite games of all time.
This is, was, and will forever be one of my favorite games of all time. It is A great RPG game with a fairly relaxed plot and game play. I have several rpg's that I play and I always return to this game when I am stressed or stuck on other games because of its simple comedy, Amazing (to me at least) main character expressions that generally make me laugh out loud. Each character is interesting in their own way, and while some characters are a bit more annoying than others, it will make you grin in one way or another. This is a great game for everyone, just be prepared to spend hours just running around.
One of my favorite games of all time
I love this game. I can play it over and over and it never gets old. I would recommend it to anyone that loves RPGS.
Wonderful to play at any age
All time classic, grand game would recommend to anyone who enjoys adventure games, this was the skyrim of it's time if not better. I've always picked this back up it never gets old!
Amazing Old School RPG
From the minute I started playing this game, I was addicted. I bought it not realizing the Dragon Warrior series had morphed into Dragon Quest, but some of the familiar sounds made me realize that quickly. The thing that impressed me most is that the designers of this game still understand why older RPGs were so charming and they did not stray from that. This game isn't about flashy graphics or being a borderline movie and not so much a video game (like so many have become), it's about a story and gameplay that are both very easy to pick up and immerse yourself into. You don't have to spend 6 hours piecing together an intentionally fragmented storyline to begin to understand the purpose of the game. It's just simple and fun from the minute you start playing, and you won't want to stop. Beautiful old school sound track and the characters are very easy to bond with as well. Any gamer that enjoyed older RPGs from the NES and SNES days will probably love this one too.
Best RPG for PS2!
I remember playing this game before I got my xbox 360 and I played this game for so long. The leveling and skill system is always rewarding you will a new ability to use. The boss fights were very challenging when I played it so I would recommend this game to RPG fans as they will know how to approach certain elements in the game. Do realize that this game is a bit older so dont expect top notch graphics and sounds but for its time this game was one of the best PS2 Games that ive ever played.
RPG of the Decade
Best Game i ever played. Easily competed with Final Fantasy X and X-2. Game play was fantastic, Story line is good. Takes time to get through the game, which definitively adds to any real gamer's ideals about a great game. There are a lot of extras that one can take the time to go through, Bonuses at the end are also a great plus. I would recommend this game to anyone who loves a great story and wants to have something that will take no less than 1 week of solid play just to complete the first run through of the game. It takes me 2 weeks to get everything done in the game, and then i just want to start over and do it again.
Old RPG style but still a Great GAME!
Dragon Quest is a nice game a must have for those are big Dragon Quest fans or just gamer who loves RPG's. DQ 8 is using a more older style then some of those new RPG's like FF12 or Shadow Hearts. But that doesn't mean this game is boring heck no it's fun and yes abit hard. The story of DQ8 is not the best but it fairs others I say. The graphics is cel-shaded colorful and breathtaking. Some tiny slow downs but you can hardly tell. The sound well great voice acting of course you don't talk sad to say it. The music is good but the same battle songs over and over again I had to mute my t.v but un mute it when the cut scenes came up. The sound is not perfect however but great voice acting. The gamplay is old but nevers gets boring you have to level grind in order to beat the bosses, the game is super long around 100 hours or even more just depends how good you are. There are different endings to this game it's good to play it twice or three times. Then again the game is great but some hic-ups.
this game is so much fun. i randomly picked this from the shelf and found it to be super good. the game play is good along the graphics and sound. its a rpg - turn taking game with lots of equipment , items , and plot. GET IT
I really liked this game to begin with,the story is good and its adventurous. However my game broke and i still dont know if i should buy it again.
This game is just terrible. I'm not a big RPG fan, but this game just tops the bullcrap. The story is really weak, and I was thinking what kind of RPG has a weak story. The gameplay is turn - based, and that's ok, but when you die in battle it turns into a nightmare. Yourhave to go through this stupid process of going to this church - like place when you die and get poisoned, which is really annoying. Dear God, give this game some antidotes of revivals, shheeesh! If you are like me please keep your receipt in hand.
