Summary: Never been a fan of Dragon Warrior games, but Dragon Quest VIII on the PS2 really turned me around on this series. So I decided to grab up the DS trilogy. Apprehensive at first since so many DQ fans were saying this was the worst of the trilogy, I ended up liking VI better than V.
Summary: I've been a fan of Dragon Quest well before the name change (Use to be Dragon Warrior) and have been playing the series since it's first release back in the 80's. Dragon Quest 5 & 6 never made it over to the states and the last game of the original 2 trilogies was Dragon Warrior 4.
Summary: ive always loved dragon quest (dragon warrior when i first became aware of it) its a prime example of the adage "if it aint broke.." spectacular series. DQ 8 is up there with FF7, 9, 6, and 4.. if you havent played DQ 8 you absolutely must..its a work of art.
Summary: There are several reviews here on Amazon outlining the specifics of the gameplay for Dragon Quest VI so I'll keep it brief. This is, at it's core, a turn-based JRPG, and a reasonably fun one at that.
Summary: I enjoy the class system I have enjoyed in other DQs. I also haven't spent any time just running in circles leveling up to be strong enough for the next boss. Has a nice flow. Sometimes the next step in the adventure is questionable.
Summary: Dragon Quest similar to the others I've bought with the exception of not being to recruit different monsters. You can get a few slimes and a Lizard "Lizzie". I understand these changes were made for the DS. As I don't have wifi some elements are not available to me.
Summary: This is a pretty good classic JRPG experience, not a flashy game by means, the graphics won't blow away anyone, buts its still a good looking game for a 16 bit remake. The gameplay is your basic bread and butter turned base battles, which are fun and fast, nothing innovative, but still solid.
