Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King Review
Dragon Quest VIII is a charming classic-style RPG that doesn't stint on difficulty, graphical beauty, or fun.

The people who made this game were dead on with using cel shaded graphics. The characters are from the guy who did Dragon Ball, so cel shaded fits in perfectly. And the graphics look amazing for a PS2 game. Not to mentio... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful

Dragon Quest VIII is so traditional its not even funny. Your character is a young man you get to name--referred to as "the gov" in game the few times voice actors need to say it out loud--who finds himself thrust into a ... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
