Review: Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride for Nintendo DS

 

The easiest way to date Dragon Quest V as a 16-bit era JRPG is to look at the dialogue. Even with the stellar translation job done in this Nintendo DS remake and the efforts to give characters regional dialects, the words have this particular special...

Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride

 

The original, indomitable Japanese RPG series, Dragon Quest, had a rough start in North America. Between a renaming (Dragon Warrior) due to trademark issues and a competitive market where Final Fantasy seemed to dominate, it's no wonder that Americans...

After playing this game, and taking time to weigh out all the good and bad in this review, the only thing left for me to say is this: "I can't wait for Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Reverie!" Let's hope Square Enix does another excellent job localizing...

Dragon Quest fans shouldn't miss out on finally playing Dragon Quest V for the first time in America

As I stated with the Dragon Quest IV review, DQV doesn't try to reinvent the wheel. This is an old-school experience with traditional gameplay that fits this game well. If you're expecting a revolutionary experience you will be disappointed. But if...

If you haven't experienced a Dragon Quest title before now, this is the game to begin with.

Entertaining story that bucks RPG clichés; rich and vibrant 3D environments; enjoyable monster taming integrates well into the game's style; definitive release of the title

Typical RPG mechanics may turn some off; quite a few random battles to wade through

In 1992 Japan saw the release of a massive epic role playing game called Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride for the Super Famicom (Super Nintendo Entertainment System) but it never made its way over the Pacific to North American shores unless...

Everything… this is the best RPG on the Nintendo DS and a must have game ; You can and should replay it ; Amazing story ; 3D graphics are fantastic and show the DS has some power behind it ; Audio is well done ; Exotica net is a great “multiplayer”...

Interface could have been better considering the rest of the game is incredible looking ; 18 years to get this incredible game was too long

Up to what point the graphics have been worked on my the developper. The design type, the effort used for textures and environments, as well as animations and framerate

It's cleverly structured and the entrancing, charm-filled yarn will stay long in the memory.

Remakes can be charming...

The something amazing about Dragon Quest's charm, even though it's simple to play and doesn't do anything you don't expect it's still a solid RPG that will keep you coming back until you're married.

Review: Another special re-quest...

Another strong offering for RPG fans to sink their teeth into, with some great graphical updates, but be warned: this is two parts work, one part play.
