Customer Review

on 27 June 2006
From the creators of Final Fantasy comes this highly enjoyable, traditional Japanese RPG. Along with stunning cel-shaded visuals, a massive world to explore and a wonderful soundtrack, comes plenty of addictive traditional role playing action and plenty of side quests to keep you going long after completion. Dragon Quest VIII can take up to 100+ hours to complete including all of the side quests, making it well worth the money spent. From start to finish, this game offers a memorable cast or characters and a pretty good storyline. It's one of the best RPGs to be released during the PS2/Xbox/GC era and is definately one of the best RPGs available on the PS2.

The only major flaws about Dragon Quest VIII are:

1. It's a traditional RPG, so it doesn't break much ground in the RPG genre. The lack of originality in the genre department is a downside (although the game's quality lies in the high production values).

2. The story can drag on quite a bit and it isn't nearly as deep as the storylines in some other RPGs.

These flaws aside, Dragon Quest VIII is a brilliant game and is one of the finest games to be released this year.
