Nice remake. Reviews are spot on. Controls take a little getting used to. Translation is a little off, but I've played this game so much that it didnt bother me. Its so nice to get to play this again!!!
Wtf did chapter 1 say? Game is great, but the translation needs a lot of work. Would it kill you to use the text from dragon warrior 4? Or hire an English speaking person to work with the translator you have? Still not sure how they got bairne or whatever it was for children. Only online walkthrough and translation sites are making some of the clues make sense
Vertical only? I don't understand the insistence to use vertical in the dq games, it's much more enjoyable and logical playing these types of hands horizontally
Plays perfectly Put in a few hours over the weekend. It appears to be a complete port from the DS version. This would probably explain the portrait orientation - going from the 2 screens on the DS seems to translate into a portrait final product. No bugs yet, can move the dpad to one side or the other as well resize it allowing for one or two handed play. Hopefully still works fine once ART becomes mandatory.
Great remake. Terrible translation As fun as the original and with the same great music and pace. The only thing that was needing major Improvement was the translation. It's 2015 and there's no reason for the English to sound like it was run through Google translate with a few shots of whiskey. It's all sorts of awkward and the entire first chapter is full of Michael Meyers characters playing Scottish accent. No... Just no. Copy and paste the original text. Easy peasy. You don't do accents in text based games, especially heavy ones.
NOTHING WRONG WITH THE TRANSLATION It's disturbing how many people are unable to tell that the dialogue is done to try to display the NPC's accents. There's absolutely nothing "wrong" with it, other than the fact that it's annoying.
This classic generation-spanning epic is available at last for portable devices!
