Dragon Quest V - Fans Of The Hyperbolic Opine
25 September 2013
Summary: In every long running series of video games there's often one title that players hold in highest esteem. Well it just so happens in the eternal Dragon Quest franchise, number 5 is often noted as the crème de la crème by ardent fans. The number one reason cited is Dragon Quest V's (DQV henceforth) "amazing story". But before I get to that, let's break this game down into modular criticisms. Graphics: DQV on the DS is largely graphically the same as DQIV was on the DS.
Summary: I chose this game because I'ma fan of the Dragon Quest series. I enjoy seeing monsters and hearing sound effects I remember from being a kid. The storyline of this game delivers as well. It carries you a long with a fair balance between playing time and passive story watching. The thing that keeps this game from being really great is the grinding. I didn't finish it. A lot of games we all love do throw in endless hours of leveling up and kill for cash game play.
