I remember a few years ago, i looked at this game and it looked fun. Honestly it wasn't as bad as everyone says.
First off, i like that they incorporated the wii controls. It reminded me off those really bad arcade motion games, but done right with fluent controls.
Next off, it was an easy game that anybody could pick up and play. simple and easy yet entertaining is what they went for.
The downfall of this game is its OBNOXIOUS LINEAR GAMEPLAY. It was a meant to keep it easy, but if they added open world elements and a random battle encounter the game wouldve turned out in a much better way.
Overall, not a bad game just not executed in a good fashion either.

This game is pretty awesome, it really makes use of the Wii controllers, well the main controller anyways. The game is unlike other Dragonquests, the story is simplified to a small kingdom instead of the world, which is a nice turn of pace. The party members you choose from and their skills they build can be useful in battle, but not really too big a deal unless heal for boss or farming. Speaking of farming, that takes awhile but its not necessary.
Upgrading weapons are easy as the items are commonly picked up. Re-doing dungeons after you reach a higher level and getting a better score in the dungeon profits much with better item drops and so forth.
Voice acting is kind of iffy but its not a big deal. Character designs are pretty cool, and I like how you can have one of the companions (party members) actually say your name, its cool.
With how you swing the sword as if you were actually holding it, the exciting story, the fun characters, the humor, the decent graphics, and the beautiful music; this is one game you must try. If you want a Wii RPG then this is it. Its short, but sweet.
