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

 

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,...

Dragon Quest Swords: The Masked Queen and the Tower of Mirrors (Wii) Review

 

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...

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

 

Dragon Quest as a series has always attracted children, and Dragon Quest Swords: The Masked Queen and the Tower of Mirrors is based on a Japanese children's toy that never made it across the ocean to U.S. shores. It shouldn't surprise you then that...

These quirky shop folks are bit players in the tale, but they offer some extra entertainment beyond the main story. The pink bow-adorned brute that runs the game shop solicits multiplayer for up to four players featuring Dart Attack -- you move the...

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

 

Since its launch in late 2006, the Nintendo Wii has been a North American phenomenon. Combining the pick up and play quality of the Wii remote with unique game design has led the big N to resume its console dominance in this current console generation...

Dragon Quest Swords was originally intended to be a launch game for the Nintendo Wii system and it definitely shows. From its rudimentary graphics and music to its poor control scheme, this game makes the hardcore RPG fan scratch his or her head in...

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

 

Dragon Quest: the Masked Queen and the Tower of Mirrors is a weird game- an action RPG that takes the on rails approach to combat and exploration. Throwing in the Wii remote, you have a game that will appeal only to an infinitesimal percentage of the...

Combat is intuitive and easy to pick up on ; Still retains enough RPG elements to feel authentic

But is scaled down and linear so RPG fans may feel constrained by the size

This is a nice sidequest in one of the longest running franchises out there. It isn't going to win any awards, but it does manage to be somewhat entertaining, so it's at least worth checking out.

DRAGON QUEST SWORDS: The Masked Queen and the Tower of Mirrors Review

 

DRAGON QUEST SWORDS: The Masked Queen and the Tower of Mirrors is a simple entry-point RPG

A relatively short game, SWORDS is imminently accessible by gamers of all ages. It looks good, is easy to play and understand and provides entertainment in a relaxed vein. If you are a hardcore RPGer, the game's gentle pacing may not be your cup of...

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

 

On the blunt side.

Simple, clean, nonchalant adventure; Doesn't take itself too seriously; Wii-sensing works

though not seriously enough.; ...most of the time.; Underutilized, cliché party members; Redundant replay; Barebones adventure with Wii-mote fluff

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

 

Combat system is interesting for a while, Familiar visual style, music, and monsters

Everything outside of combat has been massively dumbed down, Shallow story featuring shallow characters and dialogue, Motion controls aren't always accurate
