    Much better than 1 and 2.

    Game Review-Gameboy Color-Dragon Warrior III Review 14 As of this review, I will no longer be grading games by a “sound” category. I think that the sound of a game is too opinionated and it kinda bogs down a game’... Read Full Review

    Mistakes were not fixed

    After a couple years, Enix committed the same mistakes that made the Dragon Quest series more boring than it should be. The good: - The plot has some interesting twists (I won't reveal spoilers here, in respect t... Read Full Review

    Perfect, every replay is like playing a new game.

    I have played this game over 30 times never had the same exact team turn out. From what starts out as a child searching for their father turns out to be a long journey of friendship, endurance and growth. RPG lovers its ... Read Full Review

    For those with lots of time and patience.

    There is nothing new in the game, just your everyday old-school RPG, although it's a very memorable one. Dragon Warrior III is a rather hard game, requiring lots of level griding in order to survive certain boss battle, ... Read Full Review

    Will certainly blow you away after the first 2. This is how it all began.

    Correct, this game is even more amazing than the first 2 combined, and not only by how big the world is, but how much is there, what you have to do, just everything, and plus a huge number of enemies thrown into this. ... Read Full Review

    A must own Gameboy Color game

    Dragon Warrior III is the model that every publisher should review when remaking one of their own games. Enix took an already good game, and turned it into something that is no less than a masterpiece. The story of D... Read Full Review

    Where the series really seems to have taken off. (9.2 actual score).

    Well. After getting fed up with trying to play the Japanese-only SNES remake of Dragon Quest III after playing the SNES versions of Dragon Quest 1&2 (see my earlier review for how I felt on that one), I decided to re... Read Full Review

    excelent game

    Compared to dragon warrior 3, dragon quest 3 for snes has lots of things that dw3 doesn't has. The game is exactly the same until you reach Zoma which is the boss of darkness. In this game you have the new feature of tra... Read Full Review
