PS2 game for your phone!!!! Definitely a keeper. I love this game. Beautiful graphics. Its great to play a 3D DQ game on your phone. My only complaint is that the cloud save doesnt work for me. I tried to solve it with Square Enix customer service (who told me it was Google Cloud's fault) and later with Google Cloud (who told me it was the app's fault). An annoyance since its a 80+ hour game and I cant sync to the cloud, so I might loose my progress at some point.
Best game in the series! Took them forever, but they finally fixed the cloud download issue. Not quite as good as the ps2 version, with the no voice acting, but it was a small sacrifice to make to get the full experience on your phone! Probably not worth the full price anymore though, with the 3DS version comming out soon.
Fantastic Game! A classic that ages well. Can't say enough good things about this game! The only drawbacks are the limitations of porting the console controls to touch-screen, which they did well considering. And the lack of the well-received English voice acting from the original. Otherwise a perfect, even slightly better version of the classic!
DQ8 on ps2 was great, this game encapsulates most of that. The cut voice acting and forced portrait view, however, are poor port choices. -2 stars. They DID add auto-run though! Edit: -1 more star, cloud save is broken. Edit 2: - 1 more star, no BT controller support.
A remake / Downgrade from the PS2 + The same great core game from the ps2. - Missing important audio from the game, music and dialogue. A realy good solid game that will keep you wanting more. Compared too the original lacks some of its vital character, with the music being. down graded that sounds like it's from a early 90s game. As well as no original voice dialogue. If your a fame of the original and just want more monster hunting, crack on. If you loved the story and what to relive, move on and fine another love.
Around 20 FPS! Reviews are correct, the software-locked frame rate is really horrible! While you can still slug through the game, it feels laggy as hell (regardless of hardware). I'm playing on a Sony Xperia Z5 Octa-core. Do your research before purchase; $22 is a bit steep for what feels like you're playing on a bad emulator. Dragon Quest VIII however is still a brilliant/amazing game and the fact it is now portable is nice.
It added support for Android OS6.0.
This classic generation-spanning epic is available at last for portable devices!
Play the first DRAGON QUEST in the Zenethian series & experience the epic story!
