Dragon Warrior VII – Review

GameCritics.com
15 July 2005
  • Excerpt: Videogames have come under heavy criticism in recent years for conventions they refuse to retire, conventions that, the argument goes, are rendered absurd by the graphical realism and sophisticated 3D environments that have become commonplace. The RPG genre in particular has been the target of much of this criticism, but the reason is fairly complicated.

Dragon Warrior 7

Into Liquid Sky
22 January 2005
  • Excerpt: Dragon Warrior VII is the story of a young fisherman's son, who lives on the remote island of Estard Island, apparently alone on the great ocean. One day, he discovers a magical shrine beneath the ruins near his fishing village. With the aid of his friends, the local Prince and the mayor's daughter, the hero travels via a magic gate in one of the chambers to another island, set some time in the past. They find the island plagued and besieged by demon minions.
  • Pros: Old school RPG, Job system is fun, Puzzle-based dungeons are nice, Game will last a long time
  • Cons: Dated graphics, Way too much "leveling up" needed

Dragon Warrior VII

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: Let's get this out of the way, because it seems to be most people's number one gripe about the game-- Dragon Warrior VII is not particularly pretty. Indeed, the maps are downright ugly--the polygonal structures aren't that bad, but the character sprites are darn near unforgivable in their lack of visual quality. The battle graphics, on the other hand, are definitely near the good end of the spectrum, especially the various animations.

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: Dragon Warrior VII...a game that has developed an almost mythical status in the last few years. It's no wonder, either, given that it took well over 5 years to develop and yet another 6 months for it to hit American soil. Adding to the intense mythos surrounding the game, it sold over 4.4 million copies in Japan during the 6-month localization process alone.

  • Excerpt: Enix has not released a new Dragon Warrior game in America for nine years. The series has changed so little with Dragon Warrior VII for the PlayStation that it seems a much shorter time.
