This game is amazing, I was originally worried when I rented this game after reading most of the reviews. Then after I played it I realized that most people that played this game were just whiny brats. The game uses an awesome new fighting system that lets you feel more in the game than ever. You can also easily control how hard or easy you want the game to be, by how much you upgrade your equipment. As for me, I got the best armor in the game before I even finished the first chapter. Where this game truly shines is the extra bosses. They all offer different types of challenges, and the final boss fight had me broke out in a sweat before I was even half way done. The music and graphics are typical of any Dragon Quest game. Very strong in both departments, without ever over doing it. Although even I must admit the story is kinda weak, I was easily able to put 40 hours into this game and never feel let down. You can beat the story mode around the mid lvl 30's, but don't expect to be taking care of the final boss at lvl 50. The fights require alot of strategy and timing. Overall this game has exceeded my expectations and I am pleased to have rented it.

8 out of 13 gamers (62%) found this review helpful

iv been waiting a while for this game and i knew it'd be different, but this is like the resident evil umbrella chronicles....i expected a first person shooter for resident evil but with puzzle element intact....instead we got house of the dead resident evil style.....similar for this expected a first person adventure game....not a walk along hack and slash!

despite this it is still incredibly fun and i found that with the focal point feature the hits are very precise and i think they finally nailed it giving us a good wii sword game at last!

red steel and samurai warriors katana were huge let downs, but this ones pretty darn fun.

story line reminds me of dragon quest 8 in its unoriginality. i found this games fun actually came from its sword action.

and heres the downside.....its freaking short as heck. it honestly took me less then 2 days to beat this game, and that was what let me down severely.

overall id say rent this game,wouldant entirely advise buying it.

I have to say, I thought a long time about this game before clicking rent it, but I should have click sooner because this game is AWSOME!!!!!111
The wiimote moves are great but can be hard at some times and the shield brakes because they cant last forever. but this game is still AWSOME.

But they NEVER SHUTUP!!!! One person talks then the other person talks about there problems and talks and talks and talks and so on...
so if you want to read and be board to death but have fun when the talking is over GET THIS GAME
