I've only played a few hours of it so far, but I'm enjoying it. A bit too much random fighting, but overall a enjoyable game so far. Also enjoyed the Final Fantasy demo that came with it. So I'd vote for something there if I cared, hehe.
We got the game...but we have been a DQ fan since the NES days. We are enjoying it, but we suppose we got spoiled by other RPGs with progression. DQ games have always been difficult and force you to be of a particular level before advancing. So the long level up / make money to buy new crap thing does stretch things...So we take our DQ gaming in small doses.
Oh...and we really did not like the Final Fantasy demo
Well, pretty much only the game veterans will have a better appreciation of the game since its roots are far. I had to spoon feed my younger brother small doses of the earlier DQ before he appreciated the nostalgia and appreciate the recent releases.
