Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies review (DS)

HonestGamers
15 March 2015
  • Excerpt: Although I really enjoyed playing Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies , it's hard not to look at it as a step back from the eighth game in the series. Moving from the PS2 to the handheld DS was a regression on a technological level, and the new emphasis on post-game content left the main...

  • Excerpt: Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies is the first original mainline Dragon Quest series entry to be released on the Nintendo DS. While to some this might seem like an odd decision, for Square Enix's flagship Japanese RPG series it really makes perfect sense.

  • Excerpt: Quests are a big part of this game and usually have good rewards.  There\'s story line quests and side quests that you can accept by talking to the villagers.  You\'re limited to a certain number of open quests; fortunately you can later decline doing them.
  • Pros: Simple and fun game play, lots of online content, no random battles
  • Cons: Some may find it too easy

  • Excerpt: Dragon Quest upholds tradition with every new iteration. Its mechanics have certainly been streamlined since the days of the original game on the NES, but Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies will fool no one familiar with the series into thinking it is a bold break with the past.

Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies – DS (Review)

Gametactics
11 August 2010
  • Conclusion: Add a point to this score if you’re lucky enough to have a friend-or-two with a DS and another copy of Dragon Quest 9. Still, even without the ad-hoc multiplayer, Dragon Quest 9 is a great game that will keep you occupied for months.
