Dragon Quest:Journey of the Cursed King is a truly spectacular game. After a long wait, a new RPG that is on par with the likes of final fantasy 7.
I'm not going to reveal too much about the storyline, but certain parts will have you in stitches and you will find yourself unable to stop playing just so you can find out how the story continues.
Most RPGs find themselves with the same problem - the sheer amount of random battles that occur out while exploring the world map. This factor is intensfied even further by the further by the size of the world map. However, with the battle system being hugely enjoyable and far from tedious, the battles are just as much fun as oggling the amazing graphics.
Along with the large main story / quest, there is a large amount of extra sidequests and activities to participate in, the game manages falls into the 80 to 100 hour category depending on how much you level up, search for treasure chests, etc.
This game has truly done justice to the RPG genre and I strongly recommend those who haven't tried this genre to dive straight into this game. Those who are familiar with this genre, why are you reading this review, buy the game now!!!
As always, there is something to complain about, but it isn't about the actual game itself, but the fact that we didn't get a final fantasy 12 demo just like the Americans.
