This is an engrossing and addictive game, despite its significant limitations. For instance, since your playable characters are (for the overwhelmingly most part) made by you, there are few animated scenes, the protagonist is silent, and the plot isn't so much soul-searching as it is episodic. These thing have their ups and downs. Some of the non-player characters are quite well done, though.

The battle system is antiquated by modern standards. Final Fantasy V was the first Final Fantasy game in which you could take your actions at any time, and fans new to Dragon Quest will wonder why they have to set all their actions prior to every turn, something that should have been done away with ages ago. The job and skill system is onerous - it takes forever to learn skills, unless you do it in a "roundabout" way. There really should have been some kind of ability points system, like Final Fantasy V's perhaps? Not that I was particularly fond of FFV, but if you're going to have a game with jobs you might as well crib from that.

Considering that the environments are all rendered with game-graphics (think Xenogears as opposed to Final Fantasy VII-IX), they're quite engaging and manage not to be *too* similar.

The postgame is a game in itself, and you will have finished everything by the time Korea reunites.

A fantastic game with many moments that make me feel nostalgia even though I played it about 3 years ago. The story is beautiful and touching. Just play this now. Deep RPG systems, nice graphics and cutscenes for the DS and a fantastic soundtrack with a huge world to explore. The game is almost endless. I challenge you to truly complete everything in the game. After the story is over the content doubles. You haven't seen anything yet until you grab some friends and do some "Grotto Grinding" in the after game.

Pros:

* Characters are customizable.

* NPC's are fun and interesting.

* Combat is turn based and straight forward.

* No more random encounters, monsters are viewable on the world screen.

* Less pointless combat that just wastes time.

* Beautiful graphics that enhance the gameplay experience.

* Lots of side quests.

* More fleshed out story then in previous DQ games.

* Characters appearance changes when armor and weapons are changed.

* Tons of different monsters and equipment.

* Improved AI.

* Don't lose experience if your party gets wiped out.

Cons:

* Common actions in town like saving at the church and banking still have too much dialog.

* Combat is too easy and lacks challenge.

* Getting key items for the alchemy pot takes up too much time and is boring.

* Unlocking some of the classes requires completing annoying side quests.

* Most of the side quests are boring and are a waste of time.

* All of the playable characters are created by you and have no background or personalities.

The gameplay is standard like most turn based rpg's, you control a party of characters and you save the world with them by undergoing many quests that lead up to defeating powerful foes.

The graphics are very good for an ds game, they look and feel like an early ps2 game

The story is much more fleshed out for a DQ game compared to previous DQ games.

DQ 9 is packed with value. I spent 68 hours playing the main story and some of the side quests, but there are a lot of extra side quests that I didn't do. It's not unreasonable to believe it could take 100 hours or more to play all the content in this game.

GAMEPLAY: 7/10

GRAPHICS: 9/10

STORY: 8/10

VALUE: 8/10

OVERALL: 8/10

There are not as much rpg games on the nintendo 3DS/2DS as I'd like, but fortunately there is quite an extensive library on the older DS system and the 3DS/2DS plays them very well. This is a nice rpg, I really like the story so far and the graphics are much better than I had expected for a DragonQuest game on the DS.

The game lives up to the hype. I've just started the dungeon delving and it looks promising for end game content. I also enjoyed the fact that you pretty much create your entire party.

Cons: The storyline, at least up to now is simplistic.

The game's mechanics makes this a definite grinder.

Excellent game, delivered on time and in the condition specified. Such a great game! So deep and addictive at times. I honestly did not expect the transition from console to handheld device to go as well as it did. Great stuff.

Bought as a gift for a friend, he loves it. He always loved final fantasy and dragon warrior when he was younger.
