4 It's ok but not greatAaronEvisiling | 22/05/2008 | See all AaronEvisiling's reviews (22)Having played Dragon Quest Journey Of The Cursed King i was expecting a brand new fresh game with all the same elements as previous titles. I have to agree with the review below me. While the First Person view is a new concept making this game more like Oblivion there is no way to see your character. The only time you see him is in cut scenes. Even though i didn't find this much of a problem i have found a few flaws out with this concept. After going on your first quest out of town you have to follow a straight path and if you count on returning to the village anytime soon you are not able to completely turn around therefore u have to walk backwards! which is a bit annoying if you ask me. While a lot of elements in the game are the same such as the music, monsters, items they have taken away the freedom of exploration out of the world map and the ability of item creation. As this is a Wii game i expected a lot of the game to use the Wii controls which it does, you use the remote to slash and point at the screen if you want to attack creatures in a certain area and defend against enemy attacks, you also have special attacks which use a bit more effort to execute but this isnt vastly difficult. It's really easy to slash and you will find yourself decapitating enemies easy early on, i only have some trouble slashing horizontally but it gets easier after practice. I only wish they had kept the battles turn based rather than being able to just slash a sword on screen, however its not always that simple as bosses need more effort as you will need to defend and heal. The one major plus to this game is the graphics! What can i say they are outstanding, so outstanding it puts the graphics from Journey Of The Cursed King to shame, i only wish the gameplay was more like it. Its not a terrible game and once you get into it, it can be very rewarding and quite addictive. £24.99 is not a bad price either so at that price its worth getting!
