Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly ...

  • Summary: On the surface it looks like a simplistic role-playing game with cartoony graphics and a less-than-serious story. But Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride is so much more than that. It's a deep adventure game full of memorable characters and an epic story.

Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride (DS) - Review

VGChartz
11 February 2009
  • Excerpt: Most of you should have heard of Dragon Quest already, one of the most famous gaming series in Japan, but most of you probably never played a Dragon Quest game.

  • Excerpt: Jakiś rok temu znalazłem ankietę internetową, w której brali udział sami Japończycy. Pytanie brzmiało: „Jaka jest najlepsza gra RPG w Twoim życiu ?”.

  • Conclusion: Jag är bara sex år och kan inte ens läsa. Tur det, då det är mitt namn som står inristat i gravstenen vid det läskiga, övergivna slottet. Men jag ska komma att bli äldre. Klokare, starkare och med fler vänner. Jag kommer att slåss mot monster, utforska världen och se nära och kära komma och gå.
