Dragon Quest Swords: The Masked Queen and the Tower of Mirrors

Conclusion: Played completely with one hand, anchored to a single sparsely populated castle and village, DQS is a one-trick pony for sure, but nevertheless, given its brevity, a fun little ride provided you can accept it for what it is, not what you wish it to be. Taking to the countryside, standing between you and each keep, you’re literally on a fixed path. You can’t look up, down, left, or right.

Conclusion: Overall, I really enjoyed Dragon Quest Swords: The Masked Queen and the Tower of Mirrors. It is definitely not the sweeping RPG that hardcore gamers have come to expect, but it stands well as an RPG for the casual gaming sect. Its great story, wonderful voice acting, and some pretty awesome Wii-mote gameplay make this a pretty good bet for the casual gamer, and who knows, maybe even a hardcore gamer or two as long as they don't mind the simple nature of the game.
Dragon Quest Swords: The Masked Queen and the Tower of Mirrors (Wii) Review

Summary: The game is a nice entry point for gamers who want to test the waters into the role playing game genre. The adventure is somewhat challenging and has enough to experience to be enjoyable. As I mentioned though, seasoned players will probably tire quickly of the repetitiveness and ease of the game but I think Square Enix didn’t make the game with the hardcore player in mind and that’s just fine.
Conclusion: Despite a couple of flaws, Final Fantasy IV DS is an absolutely great title for hardcore RPG fans. The epic, inspired story is better than ever with the new presentation, and together with the gameplay tweaks, the DS edition quickly becomes the definitive version of the game. If you are in the market for an old-school RPG, Final Fantasy IV DS is a must-have – even for those who have played it before.

Excerpt: Strap on your Wii remote, because swinging, poking, and waving wildly is the demand of Dragon Quest Swords and you don't want to send your controller zipping through a window. Hand and arm motions mimic sword slashes and shield blocks, visible on-screen as directional cuts or thrusts in completely action-oriented combat. The shields come in various sizes and shapes but degrade as you use them.
