Conclusion: In any case, the good far outweighs the bad in this game. On the whole I had a very good time, and I hope that in the future Griptonite gets the opportunity to make a longer, richer game in the same vein.
Excerpt: For a gussied-up remake of an NES game, Dragon Quest IV features some nice touches. The clever episodic structure puts a twist on the classic ''young hero saves the world'' formula, and the game adopts several advances from later DQ titles to minimize hassle.
Conclusion: Despite these flaws, for some reason DQ4 hangs together and is an enjoyable game. It does grow wearisome by the end, but you’ll be invested enough to play through the pain and finish the game.
