Dragon Quest Series on the DS for me is not that great. But still can be a good game(not great). Want to know why? 1. BATTLE SCENES - It seems they didn't put a lot of effort in the battle scenes. At least make it like the PS2's version of Dragon Quests like DQ VIII. 2. Character animation- So OLD. I remember playing the first DQ and up until now, nothings changed! What I like about DQ series on DS? 1. Story - I really love how they deliver the story line ( It goes also from way back then and for the PS2 Series) 2. Sound Effects - I think they put a lot of effort in this category and forgot about the animation. 3. Up to date series - Self-explanatory. Still, this game is one of Good games out in the market today.
