  • Summary: Yeah I used that one for Monster Kingdom: Jewel Summoner, feel free to file a complaint with Charles. Seriously though, if you’ve got the latest Pokemon for either GBA or DS then you’re playing a game that Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker borrows heavily from, it just has a glossy coat of Square-Enix...

  • Excerpt: Back in 1999, Enix saw the success of Nintendo's Pokémon franchise and decided it needed to get on the "gotta catch 'em all" bandwagon. And honestly, this wasn't such a bad idea for the company, as its Dragon Quest franchise had already spawned 6 titles, each one featuring a bevy of monsters from...

Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker review (DS)

HonestGamers
27 November 2007
  • Excerpt: It has been nearly 10 years since the Pokemon craze hit North America. Pikachu, Ash Ketchum, the urge to “catch ‘em all” – these became a part of our everyday lives. The anime was huge, the games were enormous, and the merchandise raked in billions.

  • Excerpt: What’s that coming over the hill? Dragon Quest Monsters is by all accounts a well known monster fighting game in Japan. Of course to me that instantly sounded like a Pok�mon clone. This was, as it turns out, a very unfair assumption. First off, the story.
  • Pros: Plenty of variety. Smooth combat. Good graphics
  • Cons: Levelling up can be tiresome as you battle the lower classes. The islands are a little small.

Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker Review

12 March 2008
  • Conclusion: Partly that's because there's fundamentally less to do here than a lot of RPGs; less to interact with. It's difficult to shake off the suspicion that the game is a bit slight. You can get through the whole thing in little over 20 hours, which seems a bit short for an RPG - especially considering the...

  • Conclusion: Der neuste Teil der Spin Off Reihe zu Dragon Quest ist eigentlich gelungen. Es gibt eine etwas flache, aber dennoch schöne Story mit viel Witz und Humor. Einzig an der Grafik und beim Sound hätte man mehr machen müssen, denn dort gab es die meisten Punktabzüge. Es war einfach alles zu steril.

  • Conclusion: Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker ist ein zweischneidiges Schwert. Zum einen erhebt es sich nicht aus dem bereits bekannten und langsam sehr altbackenen Gameplay seiner Kontrahenten, wie etwa Pokemon, sondern bietet lieber ein Gameplay, dass weniger auf Innovation, als viel mehr auf Sicherheit...
  • Pros: lebendige 3D-Welt, schöne Monster, Inseln hübsch anzusehen, glasklarer Klang der Soundeffekte, einfache Bedienung, Stylus gut eingesetzt, nette Monster-Features, Samelleidenschaft wird geweckt, guter Schwierigkeitsgrad, gutes Tutorial, einfacher Einstieg
  • Cons: nicht gerade bevölkerungsreich, Charaktere wiederholen sich zu oft, kaum gute Musikstücke, nicht erwähnenswerte Story, kaum Gameplay-Neuerungen, kaum Abwechslung, Monsterfangen gewöhnungsbedürftig
