dragon quest journey of the cursed king starts off with a flashback where you play as this hero who chases down this guy who cursed the king.

the game has a nice plot and story and it has a big plot twist later. the battles I loved cuz they were turn based and I loved the characters and how the hero helped one of them out.

the skills r not repetitive at all. later in the game u can catch monsters and put them in an arena which is really fun.

I recommend this game to b rented to anyone who loves jrpgs and games that have good plot twists.

I thought this game might be kinda interesting, despite the outdated graphics.... but I was wrong. The game play is very slow, there are hardly any save points, and I couldn't continue to play after the first 15 minutes or so. I wouldn't recommend this game unless you have a lot of patience, which I don't!

An amazing game. The graphics are amazing, especially for that time period, mostly due to the cell shading. Its one of those games where you always have something to do. The level of customization is simple yet highly effective giving you countless combinations. The storyline is really good and thouroughly enjoyable. 10/10 all the way. You should deffinitely try this game.
