The Swan Song of Dragon Quest on the Nintendo DS
At last, the Dragon Quest trilogy is complete on the DS with the recent release of Dragon Quest VI. From the start of the game, you and your party are going to defeat the menace of the world. Although, the group was caught by Murdraw and transformed into statues. None of the character remembers anything. Once you travel, you will hear news of the evil on this world and the kingdom who is trying to get rid of it. This is now that the story unfolds. Each character has their own personality. If you press the B button once you talk to someone or after an event, you will see their comments if they're currently on your team. Albeit, a bit shallow, I believe it's a nice touch and brings a bit more life to the game. The music of Dragon Quest VI, although not quite as good as Dragon Quest V, is still very nice. Graphically, the game looks just as good as the others two in the trilogy. A few more 3D cut-scenes are present which is a nice touch. Overall, I wouldn't say the game is a good place to start if you want to get into the Dragon Quest series. This game has been the hardest Dragon Quest game to me and knowing some of the spells first should be useful when you want to decide your class. Still, it's a good addition to the series and a nice conclusion for Dragon Quest on the Nintendo DS handheld.
