    Dragon Warrior IV came out on the NES toward the end of the console's life. It was also the first game to not include the world of Alefgard. Enix implemented a few features into the game that had no...

    Dragon Warrior 4 is one of the greatest RPGs on the NES. Its a very long satisfying game and even has its own AI system.

    Moving on from the Erdrick bloodline, here's something new.

    One of the best 8-bit RPGs!!

    Rated on March 01, 2007 by fbasque78

    Dragon Warrior IV brings all the goodness of number 3 but gives us a group of characters that is inter-connected in a plot. The game is divided in Chapters which makes you wanna play this game until t...
