The Dragon Quest series is another one of those epic sets of RPGs which, although not quite as well-known in the West as things like Final Fantasy, is still one which is well worth seeking out. This one is very much a hack 'n' slash sort of affair but it features plenty of entertainment alongside some splendidly vibrant visuals. It lacks a bit of depth and long-term appeal, but it's still something to consider for your next action RPG fix. The story is a bit familiar from other such games, finding you in a sort of medieval/fantasy world where monsters are suddenly acting rather nastily to the humans with which they've lived peacefully for years and which can be traced to a sudden shockwave felt recently. Playing as the usual bold hero, alongside some familiar faces from earlier Dragon's Quest games, it's your job to whack all these monsters until they've got their sense back, and which basically involves wandering around the game world, looking for stuff to kill. There's not the depth and variety of something like Elder Scrolls here, so if that's the sort of experience you're after, you might want to go elsewhere. However, if you are looking for a more action-oriented and less strategic offering, then this should fit the bill. It certainly looks lovely, with some eye-popping visuals and cracking design work to enjoy. The gameplay is fun and the focus on combat means you're going to need quick reflexes, but there is some strategy and thought required, thanks to the variety of customization options. There's a lot to do here but it does get samey so unless you're a diehard series fan, you could look elsewhere.
