Dragon Quest IX - Sentinels of the Starry Skies Review

 

What could be considered the most popular console RPG series in the world, Dragon Quest IX doesn't show up on the console, but this time around, it's on the DS

Dragon Quest IX - Sentinels of the Starry Skies is the kind of game that is technically sound, but does little to stand out from the pack. I understand its fans like it this way, but the series’ lack of interesting differences from most RPG’s isn’t...

Dragon Quest IX Review

 

Dragon Quest IX isn't just one of the best RPGs available on the Nintendo DS--it's one of the best RPGs available on any current console. It's not without its flaws: Portions of the game can be difficult, tedious, and sometimes require level grinding...

Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies super review

 

Provides traditional RPG feel like no other, One of the best looking DS games ever, Promises hundreds of hours of play

Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies

 

The Dragon Quest series is gaming's greatest immovable object. While many franchises can be accused of repetition, no series has ever remained so close to the tree it fell from as this legendary collection of role-playing games. The same mechanics, the...

Accessible RPG with mild violence, safe multiplayer mode.

 

Parents need to know that Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies is a lengthy but easy role-playing game with a focus on local area network multiplayer play (not online). As with most games of its ilk, it dabbles in grownup themes, but the...
