Poor King Trode has been turned into a troll, his daughter Princess Medea into a horse and his subjects into brambles. His kingdom, Trodain, is frozen in time.
The story begins as you, the hero (one of the King's guards), and your eccentric band - King Trode, the Princess and a reformed bandit named Yangus - arrive at the town of Farebury in search of an evil jester named Dhoulmagus. He is the madman responsible for stealing a forbidden sceptre from King Trode's castle and cursing the whole kingdom. Now he roams the land killing innocent victims. United by a common goal, characters Jessica and Angelo join the party on a quest to bring the devilish Dhoulmagus to justice.
Since the record-selling Japanese release new features have been added for the European versions. The game has been optimised for full-screen PAL 50Hz. The game also features the addition of English voice-overs recorded by a British cast, a full-orchestral soundtrack, a completely renovated menu system, new battle abilities, and improved animations.
DRAGON QUEST: The Journey of the Cursed King offers players a huge, epic adventure in a seamless world. Roam as far as the eye can see and battle against a wide variety of unique monsters by deploying spectacular attacks and spells - all in 3D for the first time ever.

It's full of numerous, wonderful touches you'll remember long after the game's end - a cheeky little devil's Sultry Dance attack, which cause your party members to dance uncontrollably; the way the blue slimes do deadpan better than Bill Murray; even the way saving your game requires a trip to the church to confess.

This game was brilliant,
i got this for a present and by the look of thecover I was not expecting it to be good... I would have never bought it for myself anyway.
But I was bored one day and thought I would give it a go, WOW, straight away you are thrown into the story, It's a simple plot but very addictive. It's a long game and took me around 90 hours game play, to finish. It doesn'r feel like that long though, Theres so much to do that you feel really free and theres little doors and secret things that no one tells you about and that you just have to find on your own. The people you meet along the way definatly make an impression with you and their all unique. The four main characters that you control are perfect. And theres plenty to do. Just when you think you have nearly finished the game a new exciting twist comes into play.

There is a lot of cut scenes, which can get a bit sickning.
The random fights can get a bit annoying at times and I had to use a cheat to find the Alchemy Pot ingredients.

This game is Fantastic, I strongly recomend it.

 Best RPG on ps2 for RPG fans

The game is amazing,amazing graphics,fun gameplay,brilliant characters and voices. The only flaws in this game are those which anyone who plays RPGs have come to expect. i am 80hrs through this game and at least 15 hrs were spent looking for battles because you need to level up A LOT before each boss battle,the random battles are frequent but that still isnt enough to prepare you for each boss. If you dont mind putting in a lot of effort to find out what will happen next then this will become one of your favourite games.

Y'no the japanese live for there rpg's this one in particular they were campin outside shops and queing for miles when this was released even top businessmen were having sick days just to play this game...and i can see why its simply stunning lets start with the hero hes got so much personality and charm in his lil finger than most heroes in rpg's & he dont say a word the entire game how can they pull that off, its because level 5 (rogue galaxy,dark chronicle) are genius's everything in this game the cheesy plot, villages, castles, dungeons and the people who inhabit this beautiful world wreek of charm and charisma. There is never a dull village or person to speek to which is rare for an rpg and there's so much to do and see, i clocked in at around 110 hours and i nowhere near finished it 100% the only thing that ever so slightly lets it down is the turn-based battles an it takes way too long to level up even for die-hards but despite that its a really enjoyable experience.

 This is what RPG's are about

So many games now don't seem to give me that feeling of achievment but when i got this everything changed. After looking forward to the game coming out i got it on day off release. The game has brilliant cel shaded graphics, more top notch than that of Dark Cloud/Chronicle. Everything in the game is just beautifully done and most of it being everything Dragon Warrior VII had, the sounds, the music, the monsters. The characters you meet in the game you grow to love and is more appealing from Final Fantasy XII in this way. The battle system is great and you can specialise your character to learn skills for a particular weapon. The game is also really challenging which is also something hard to find in todays gaming market, if your one to expect to rush through this RPG without taking the time to level your characters then you will fall flat later on in the game when it becomes very challenging. Everything about the game is beautiful and i can't say a bad thing about it. At this price nobody should complain as i was definitely not dissapointed. Europe isn't always lucky to receive such a good game and this might be the last we see of Dragon Quest but i do hope not. I wish we would get more games like this. I wish to see a PS2 version of Dragon Warrior Monsters next!!
