Summary: For an eight-year old, this is a great game. I, being much older, find it just okay. It is too easy to play, and not challenging. I'm not sure why it's got an E-10 rating. You do battle monsters, swing swords, staffs, knives, and what have you, but the monsters aren't scary. Most of them are "cute". There is no foul language and none of the typical suggestive themes.
UK version but with the US version art as advertised?

Summary: This is the game no doubt but the UK version! It did not sync up to my game card reader as the US version! This is the UK version. I am selling mine! The picture here is deceiving! I thought I was getting a US replacement! The game is a favorite of mine but this on Amazon is the wrong version and it costs double the price to buy for one to send it back to the UK!
Summary: The last dragon quest game I played was for GB color and I didn't like it. After playing Golden sun and realizing that they're similar in a lot of ways I figured I'd give it another shot and actually really enjoyed the game. It has a lot less needless talking like Golden sun and the customization of characters was a huge plus (Armor, looks, etc.) I was getting really excited while playing it hearing there was multi-player co-op and finding hints about it in the game.
Summary: this is a very good game. The reason why i said that it is incomplete is because their are extra bosses and story plots in the game that cannot by accessed unless you download them onto the game by connecting it to the internet. Unless you download the additional stuff the game is not complete and whole. It was alittle insensitive for the game company to make this game the way they did.
Summary: I am almost 30 and still enjoying video games to a certain extent. I picked up the game since it was one of the highest rated rpg's for ds, it contained art work of Akira Toriyama and since it had a colorful, thick, detailed strategy guide. The game had been fun for quite some time. Encountering new monsters and checking their character pages in the strategy guide was one of my favorite things.
It's classic expect for 1 detail- Character development.

Summary: I got Dragon Quest to fulfill that... need I have to play a more classic RPG like when I was younger. I looked through those available on the DS and everyone seemed to like it the most. And at first I was sold- It has all the charm Dragon Quest 8 had in combat and the world and the side stories. Unfortunately I was deeply disappointed about 25-30 hours into the game when I finally got frustrated enough to say ask the question "When will someone else join my party?
Summary: I've been following the Dragon Quest series since the original was released for the NES (I got mine for free with a Nintendo Power subscription!) Needless to say, I'm a huge fan. When this game got announced for the DS, I was extremely excited. I pre-ordered it, and couldn't wait to get my hands on it. Well, I got it, played it some, and then I let it sit. Over the past several months, I've picked it up here and there. I'll play it in fits-and-starts.
Summary: The charm of character customization and clothing wears off pretty quickly, leaving the typical grind for gear/levels of most RPGs. Nothing particularly special makes DQIX stand out from the rest.
Summary: If you an RPG fan, the story line and character development may leave you a bit disappointed. You assume the role of a celestrian that falls from the heavens and takes up arms to help those in the protectorate . . . I haven't finished the game, but it involves running around battling monsters and collecting fruit that fell from a sacred tree into various locations within the protectorate.
