4cr Plays- Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions (DS)

  • 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.

  • Cons: Restriction of Spider Powers at certain times; lack of open world limits replay value; combat very watered down and lacks finesse; some control issues.

Impression: Dragon Quest IV

RPGamer
15 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Dragon Quest is, admittedly, a series I don't have extensive experience with. I've played VIII, and was underwhelmed. I found it to be fun, but not really a great console experience. So when I heard that not only was Dragon Quest IX slated to be coming out on the DS, but three remakes of classic games in the series as well, I was optimistic. I felt like the smaller screen would be a far more appropriate home to the old-school feel of Dragon Quest.

A Classic Quest Worth Taking

Game Informer
22 September 2009
  • 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. However, Dragon Quest IV is about as traditional as an RPG can get. It isn't deep or complicated, and it relies heavily on grinding.

Review – Dragon Quest IV

videolamer
8 January 2009
  • 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. Another bonus is that there is a solid thirty plus hours of gameplay, only ten of which you will spend trying to figure out where to go next.
