I love RPGs and played the original DQ8 which gets 5 stars, the mobile version however has taken the original and cut bits out which made the original, original. The biggest part cut is the voice acting which made up such a unique part of the game you just miss the experience without it, the other big area is no landscape mode. Hopefully these will come with updates but doubtful, till then, 3 out of 5 unfortunately! Can't play this... no voice acting has literally cut the heart out the game...
I have chucked this game at very high end and very low end devices and it always produces an enjoyable and very playable experience. I would highly recommend it for anyone, and its a must for fans of the series. I personally feel that the lack of voice acting fits this platform well, and love how the alchemy pot is now instant. The only negative comment I can make is the lack of landscape mode.
Haters will hate. Landscape orientation is great, but only simple games are your option for portrait. Review the pros here folks. Dont look stupid killing time between classes. Thumb/fingers less intrusive on the "action" area. More comfortable to hold. Easy real life multitasking with your free arm. Needs 5+fps better to be perfect though. LG G2 and GS4. Voice-over trolls: would you be happier if this was a 6gb download? That's what it would take. Then trolls would complain that the game takes up too much space. Lol.
This was one of my absolute favorites growing up. They did a wonderful job overall, but 2 things really take away from the game. No voices or rotation. I could handle no rotation but, PLEASE make an optional download for the voice overs so people like myself who are willing to sacrifice storage on our phones so we can enjoy the game in its full glory. Plus I think you'd see the sales for this skyrocket if you would. THANK YOU for fixing the clouds saves. Huge relief.
No landscape support, awkward touchscreen controls, missing all voicework. What's with all this sloppy porting square enix? And $15.99?! Shameful and lazy. 😕
Does not work on tablets. Otherwise I found an uncanny way of getting the all star cast. You just need another device and means to download the videos of walkthroughs I would personally suggest YouTube downloaders and the channel Amaury Garcia-Cumming.
Fixed a bug.
