Dragon Quest 4 Chapters of the Chosen

 

The original Dragon Warrior - the old US name for Dragon Quest - was the first RPG I ever played and finished, at the tender age of four. While it may not be the main compelling reason that I got into the genre (That would be Final Fantasy 2 on the...

You won't find anything new or fresh here, but if that's okay with you, this game is wonderful. Throwback RPG developers should take a few cues from the Dragon Quest series.

Dragon Quest is an institution in Japan. Back in the early days of the genre, people would line up to buy new installments of the trendsetting RPG and even to this day, it maintains a high level of popularity. It's amusing, then, that the series is...

An updated and worthwhile take on an RPG classic.

Stellar presentation; light and fun story; tried-and-tested gameplay

Very repetitive; the amount of level grinding may be too much for some

Dragon Quest IV offers a classic RPG experience that you'd be hard-pressed to find elsewhere. It combines an enchanting story with some decent upgrades that make it well worth checking out. If you've played this one before and found it wasn't for you,...

Unapologetically kickin' it old school.

Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen (NDS)

 

Dragon Quest IV plays out like many other classic RPGs. The random battles are pretty straight forward, and you can control the actions of your main characters. There are some temporary alliances and these party members have a mind of their own. You...

Despite the prevalence of increasingly epic games with bigger budgets and better graphics, classic RPGs of days long past are finding an extra life on current-generation hardware. Remakes are nothing new to players. Getting them to bite often requires...
