Better than the original!
It's always been a great game. Some character names changed slightly, but no biggie. Unlike the original version, you can control all of the characters instead of just setting their AI. It's been great replaying one of my all time favorites!
...My life is officially complete. That's the phrase that keeps coming to mind every since I've conquered one of the greatest video games of ALL TIME!!!!!! ENTER DRAGON QUEST 4‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️ again I would like to start of my review by stating that I have been on a journey to purchase, play, and beat all of the DQ titles available on the App Store, as I've done months back with the Final Fantasy series. The unfortunate thing though about writing all of these reviews, especially when each installment is better that the last, is the simple fact that it becomes nearly impossible at this point to adequately portray the awe-inspiring majesty of each game I review, and I don't think there's a single game that I have ever reviewed in my entire life that I would like to adequately portray said majesty more than the almighty Dragon Quest.
Where does one begin when trying to review a game of this magnitude? Well I guess I would have to start by talking about the sheer goose bump-inducing orchestration. Dragon Quest 4, without a shadow of a doubt has some of the very best music I have E-V-E-R come across in any RPG...EVER!!! For instance the music that plays when you sail around in the boat would send such monstrously jovial shivers down my spine every single time I heard it, and if I just happened to be playing with headphones whenever I boarded ship, FUGGEHDUHBOUDIT!!
Another mind blowing aspect of the game are the incredibly diverse and wonderfully ethnic dialogue. The writing for this game is over-the-top fantastic that you can almost audibly hear the words in your head. The programmers achieve this feat by adding many different dialects and English translations from many areas across the world, from France to Scotland to Italy to England and so on. By writing out the words in English as it would sound with that foreign accent is just something that needs to be experienced, and it's certainly something I've never seen before I've started playing Dragon Quest. For instance the French people would always say "ze" when they mean "the" and the British sounding natives would say things like "roit" when they mean "right". These are just a few of the thousands of examples but you get my drift. They even went as far as giving the Italian sounding natives horrible English grammar like "I am for having trouble. Can you be helpful of me" it's these subtle yet striking nuances that really make the game stand out. Many people think it's just bad Japanese to English translation, but it's obviously intended for there are many NPC's in the game that speak perfect English.
Again, even saying all of these things could never truly justify how perfect this game really is. I am very new to the DQ series so a lot of these things are pretty fresh to me considering this is a completely different monster than Final Fantasy. Speaking of monsters, after you've spent a hard day obliterating a pack orcs or cute squishy slimes, you can sit back and enjoy a quick game of DQ poker, or even a couple go'rounds at a slot machine, maybe even place a few bets on the monster arena, all located at the casino!! My point is, for those that aren't too particularly keen on grinding till your ears bleed (I for one love to grind😋), there are a myriad of different mini games and side quests to keep you busy through the roughly 40 hour campaign...which brings me to the story.
DQ4's storyline is FAR superior to the previous games. Where Dragon Quest 3's story only became really really interesting and critically important in the last ten or so hours of gameplay, DQ4 has a deeply structured, perfectly written, and wonderfully unique story line all of its own. Comprising of 5 main chapters, you play a unique short quest for the first 4 chapters of the game, playing as all of the main characters you'll eventually meet back up with in chapter 5. It's a lot like FF4:The After Years, in a sense that all of the character's stories intertwine with one another to make a story so very intimate and engaging from beginning to end. Speaking of the end, all I am going to say is that the very moment right before the credits started to roll, was one of the most intensely heartwarming and tearjerking moments I've ever seen...just thinking about it gives me goosebumps.
On top of everything else you even got an extra chapter to unlock once you beat the game to keep you occupied for a little bit longer...and don't even get me started on the fantabulous graphics, mainly the enemy animations. Each and every enemy in the game have downright gorgeous animations along with nifty camera play, it really draws you into each battle like never before. Which brings me to the final boss. While I think I had a much tougher time with DQ2&3's final boss, (mostly because I went grinding like crazy in this game so I was pretty well prepared...liquid metal slimes yo!) the final fight in this game is something you have to see to believe. With many different forms and the aforementioned jaw-dropping animations. It was one of the most punishingly brutal, and visually astonishing boss battles I've ever experienced and won't soon forget.
Well there you have it. Another long review for a game that truly deserve all the praise you can throw at it, and that's what I try to do every time I write one of these reviews. Although I do love this game very very much...I've been seriously looking forward to the next installment in the series and have no doubt in my mind that it will be even better...Next stop, DRAGON QUEST 5‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️
Great for official Chinese, wait for more!
