Dragon Quest does what most RPG fail in the game play part. It has some qualities that are really quite neat such as the intimidate and the upgrading weapons and the alchemy aspect. The music is majestic, has quality and is some of the best i've ever heard. The graphics are very good because when you see the large hills, wide oceans, and great gigantic churches, castles, and buildings. The characters are unique really differentiated and all maid by my artistic icon Akira Toriyama (who made some of my favorite manga.) But in my opinion (and some may disagree) I got sick of the same thing over and over again in the story. Go to a new town hear how they saw the jester go to a dungeon beat a boss, I just got so sick of it that i couldn't finish it. Over all this is a very good game and there's no reason not to rent it.
