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

  • Summary: If you have played through the original before, I wouldn't recommend buying it unless you are a huge Dragon Quest fan, or if you want to see the changes. If you haven't, and you're a fan of RPGs, I would give this game a very high recommendation.

  • Excerpt: The original, indomitable Japanese RPG series, Dragon Quest, had a rough start in North America. Between a renaming (Dragon Warrior) due to trademark issues and a competitive market where Final Fantasy seemed to dominate, it's no wonder that Americans originally missed out on Dragon Quest V and VI for SNES. We also missed countless remakes of the games in the series.

Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride – Staff Review

  • Excerpt: The immense popularity of the DS has allowed North American gamers to get their hands on several games that previously never saw release on this side of the world. Like so many other games of the 8-bit and 16-bit era, Dragon Quest V has been completely remade as Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride

  • Conclusion: Dragon Quest V proves again in my eyes why Dragon Quest is such a loved series in Japan. Taking its tried and true gameplay, it continues to add elements to further the game's incredible design. But overall, Dragon Quest V stands out through its incredible storytelling and ability to make you truly feel emotions for some of the characters and events in the game. Though it's hard to top Dragon Quest III in my mind, this game is very close. Highly Recommended.

Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride

  • Conclusion: Dragon Quest V has taken a 17 years-long journey, and even though certain elements feel slightly archaic, it’s worth every penny of the asking price. Square-Enix promises that DQ VI is set for North America in the near future, which will finally complete the legacy started in the mid-eighties. Don’t let the random encounters or lack of DS features put you off. The story alone is worth your attention.
