|The first Wii title from publisher Square Enix is an offshoot of the company's Dragon Quest series of role-playing games. Instead of leading a party from a third-person vantage point, players will instead trek across dungeons, forests, and other atmospheric locales from a first-person perspective. Combat is more action-oriented than in previous games, as players wield the Wii Remote like a sword, hacking and slashing at slimes, golems, and other fantastical creatures while blocking their attacks with a shield. More powerful weapons and even magic spells can be acquired as players fulfill quests, compete in mini-games, and discover new areas.|

Great game, although this isn't your standard RPG with long last playtime. But DQ Sword gives you something that other RPG Game don't have, the sensation of actualy being the Hero,although that makes the game more like an Action Game rather than an RPG.
Graphic : 7.8
DQ Sword has decent and well executed graphic , with lots of familliar NPC's,and monster's for the DQ Series fans.
Sound : 7.8
There are A lot of familliar sound effects from the DQ Series in this game,and DQ Sword gives you good musics to support the battle and adventuruous feeling of the game.
Story : 6.5 (spoiler allert)
The story is all to short.....You must find the Queen, fix the mask, and fight the boss....the end. Although you could try to defeat the extra bosses after you finished the game.
Gameplay : 8.5
Great gameplay! This is the best part of this game. Feel the sensation of real intense battle against dominions of evil in your own living room. The boss battle is the most fun part of this game. It was well made by Square Enix, so you will find the boss battle really fun and entertaining.
Replay Value : 8.0
You can always replay the level you've finished to gain more EXP and item's. And with the great gameplay, you'll find yourself palying this game over and
This is the kind of game I'm expecting from Nintendo Wii,with real experience and a lot action involving the player themself. With DQ Swords, you can experience the Intense battle of a Hero in an adventure against the minions of Evil. But forget it if your'e looking for 50 hours and complex story RPG.
Dragon Quest Swords is a fun,but some times repetitive first person hack/slash with rpg elements. The game has you playing in first person, and you take on the role of a young inexperienced hero's son. The game sets you out to save the world from impending darkness, with the help of three friends(with only 1 in your party at a time) who support you via spells. The core game play revolves around using the wii mote to hack, slash, and stab your enemies,which in itself grows tiresome however the master slash moves spice up the game play nicely(allowing you to preform powerful moves by following commands on the screen.)The main story quest is rather short, but collecting items and gold for the sake of creating stronger weapons, and buying better armor, as well as some fun side quests make for an overall great experience!
This is an interesting game to play. Sword slashing is done with the Wii Remote. A little different when you are used to pushing a button for an action. Once you get adjusted to it, play is actually pretty easy and a lot more fun. I do recommend doing the training at the start of the game.
I have played others in this series and I prefer some of the more standard RPG look. A FPS look is not what I am interested in. Taking a party and developing it is more fun in my opinion. Having just one character to utilize and control makes for limitations. The secondary party member is not a lot of help.
The linear story is slow. You have to go specific directions to progress. If you want to get some of the better items you have to farm for gold/tokens. That takes extra time.
Overall game play is enjoyable. Motion Control makes it more realistic/entertaining. I have found that I prefer to stand to better control my movements. It causes things just to work better.
Dragon Quest Swords utilizes a Battle System reminiscent to those of First Person Rail Shooter games such as House of the Dead. However, instead of using a handgun, Dragon Quest Swords uses the functions of the Wii Remote as a Sword and a Shield. The direction of a sword slash is dependent on the direction the player sways the Wii Remote. In order to defend from incoming attacks, the player also has to use the Wii Remote while holding the A button while blocking the exact location of an enemy's attack on the screen. A special attack can be unleashed once the special attack gauge is filled. The gauge is filled when you hit enemies with your sword. Only your allies (Dean, Baud or Setia) can cast magic. The player can set how frequently they use magic or they can use magic manually by bringing up the menu. The player may access the menu screen while in battle by pressing the minus button.
This game is the best for young players that can not do the difficult fight scenes. The enemy's are monsters (not other humans) so isn't teaching violence against fellow peers. Actually, it teaches loyalty, camaraderie, and cohesiveness among the hero's. Defending their world which has fallen to an evil entity that requires focus, upgrading of weapons, honing of skill and helping upgrade your comrades to be strong as well. Sounds alot like what needs to happen in todays world, but with the vote instead of the sword. Thanks for a great game and great price.
