This game is very fun. If you come into this game expecting something like Dragon Quest IX, it won't be fun. It is basically a rail swordfighter. In first-person. If you expected this or something like it, youll have a great time. If not, don't rent this game.
Coming from SQ. Enix, you would expect a decent game. This game is not that. First, the movement of the character is limited and difficult... you use the D-pad rather then the Nun-chuk, enough said. Your character walks in a straight line and runs in to monsters. You have to swing the Wii mote in different directions to kill them, which can be fun, yet becomes very repetitive after a few fights. After playing other Dragon Quest games, I expected more from this game... I was wrong.
I know that this game got an "okay" rating, but I give it a 2. The controls take no advantage of the wii system other than the pointer. The sword controls are poor, and very un-accurate. Moving is also difficult, no use of the nunchuck, you have to move via up, down. left, right. thank goodness for Gamefly, I'd be mad if I wasted 20 bucks on this, or more.
