After the release of Dragon Quest Heroes – The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below in Japan achieved tremendous success, over a million copies were sold in three months. Dragon Quest Heroes (JRPG) was created by merging two large and well-known franchises. Namely, the heroes were borrowed from the Square Enix Dragon Quest series, while the hack & slash game system came from Koei Tecm’s Dynasty Warriors.
This combination in practice works perfectly, has a wonderful story in a magical environment. Everything is happening in the kingdom of Arba, which is known for its rational citizens and the peaceful coexistence of monsters and humans. The coexistence came to an end when the dark druid took control of the monsters and began to torment them against the citizens of Arba.
The game has two main characters Luceus and Aurora are members of the Royal Elite Guard. After they helped the king to clear the capital from the infestation of the monstrous attackers, they are moving into the liberation of the whole kingdom. On that trip he will discover the scheming behind the mob attack of the monsters, but he will also get new friends who will join them in the adventure.
Leveling and character progression takes place automatically, and the player has complete freedom in equipping guided heroes and heroines with various types of weapons and clothing in protective armor. In fact, in the game you have so much to do that you will need a good ten hours to catch the ends and get used to a range of available actions.
The bad thing is that all missions are strictly scripted in advance and run on a limited space. When you decide to accept a task, there is no movement until the last enemy is killed. They can be repeated unlimited times, you can escape from the battlefield and return to the base to reorder.
Action is fluid, although a small problem is a real camera that is set too low and close to events, but that’s not something you will lose your battles and what will prompt you to quit playing, on the contrary. Dragon Quest Heroes will bring you dozens of hours of good fun, long conversations with the characters you meet and a ton of good action that is also a trademark of the game.
