| A near perfect RPG
This game shows a perfect mix of turn based strategy and Japanese anime. However what makes it better than the other Dragon Quest games is its full English voice actors, which makes it much more enjoyable than reading subtitles. The humour, whilst at times can be a bit silly, is very well done in my opinion and actually made me laugh at loud a couple of times, the graphics are not the best but for the time are absolutely amazing and very nicely stylized.

All in all with over 200 hours of playtime to complete the game and never a moment of boredom I give it the highest possible rating 10/10.
