Dragon Quest IX Review

About.com
4 March 2013
  • Conclusion: Dragon Quest IX isn't just one of the best RPGs available on the Nintendo DS--it's one of the best RPGs available on any current console. It's not without its flaws: Portions of the game can be difficult, tedious, and sometimes require level grinding in order to take down particularly tough bosses. But that's all balanced out by the depth of the job system, the never-ending exploration and questing, and the game's healthy sense of fun.

Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies

  • Summary: The Dragon Quest series is gaming's greatest immovable object. While many franchises can be accused of repetition, no series has ever remained so close to the tree it fell from as this legendary collection of role-playing games. The same mechanics, the same artist, the same monsters, the same battle screens, Dragon Quest has never yielded to evolution, proudly digging itself into the turn-based RPG trench and refusing to come out.

  • Excerpt: evel 5 is quickly becoming one of my favorite developers in recent times. I've enjoyed every game I've played by these developers. Their latest title, , is no exception. It's the newest to enter the canon of one of the longest-running RPG series in the history of video games. It's the first in the main series to debut on a handheld system and also features a multiplayer mode.

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

ccgr.org
26 August 2010
  • 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.  More quests are available via wireless download.  In fact, many of the DS features are utilized in this game.  You can use the stylus to move around, but I preferred using the regular controls.
  • Pros: Simple and fun game play, lots of online content, no random battles
  • Cons: Some may find it too easy

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

Vooks
16 August 2010
  • Excerpt: Dragon Quest is one of the most storied franchises in Square Enix’s line up, though it’s understandably living in the shadows of the Final Fantasy series too, having had notably less exposure to the West. Thankfully, with the most recent entry in the franchise developed exclusively and uniquely for the Nintendo DS, coupled with the backing of Nintendo themselves, Dragon Quest IX is one of the best RPGs available on the system.
