One of the best of the series.

  • Summary: The combined forces of Square and Enix under the same umbrella at first glance seemed to be a golden age for the latter company’s Dragon Quest series in North America, given the unique localization of the eighth installment for the PlayStation 2 and decent sales. Countries outside Japan had before then endured a dark age of the franchise where the fifth and sixth main installments for the Super Famicom lacked English versions, although the announced trio of remakes of...

Fun old-school RPG with Monster Taming

  • Summary: I haven't played many of the Dragon Quest games. I purchased this game wanting some more RPGs for my Nintendo DS. I am definitely glad I bought this. -Story that starts out as a child and progresses with the player (the player doesn't age over time, but at certain times during the story he gets older). -Monster recruitment! Monsters can be recruited into the party, bringing their strengths (and weaknesses) to the party.

  • Summary: I love the series and am happy I finally got to play 5. Unlike the others in the series, you have to recruit monsters. It was more hassle than help.

Great for people who love old school games.

  • Summary: Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride is a remake from an old SNES game that was never released for Americans. It is worth the wait if you like the older structure that RPG's used to have. The graphics are gorgeous, with an awesome mix of 2D and 3D. the sprites are adorable, and the towns are intracate in their design. No real complaints about the graphics. The Sound is a mix of both old and new.

A definite must buy for rpg fans

  • Summary: Dragon Quest V hand of the heavenly bride shows that video games can have excellent stories. I'll admit that i never played the original version so i'm not quite qualified to tell you how good of a remake this is. However this is really top notch in almost every area. the graphics are among the best i've ever seen for a 2d game. the music almost always is excellent. i do have some minor gripes though.

Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride

Brittany Vincent, Game Informer
22 December 2009
  • Summary: The Dragon Quest series’ success outside of Japan has always been on shaky ground. Though it is a staple of the impressive selection of RPGs in the Land of the Rising Sun, the games have never truly caught on in the same way out west. Though the most recent DS incarnation that has been released is a remake of a game that was released nearly two decades ago, this is a rehash worthy of any RPG buff’s time and attention.

Beautiful story; great old-school RPG

  • Summary: In an RPG, I look for two things mainly: memorable story and strong gameplay. Dragon Quest V supplies both in spades. From the main story arc and the heroes down to the minor plot points and secondary characters, everything is very well-developed and a joy to take in. This game is exemplary of video games as a storytelling art form.

Outdated but still fun

Stephen Chan, Amazon
9 March 2009
  • Summary: Fun: + Addictive monster recruiting - The expansive monster recruiting system gives the game a unique feel because you can play the game using dozens of different characters. + Classic DQ charm - I got a chuckle at the enemy designs, and some of the humorous actions they take, like staring off into space. When your characters get confused, there are hilarious descriptions of what they do. + Epic story - It has mystery and talk of legendary heroes. Kept me mildly curious.
