4.0 out of 5 stars A legend. Long overdue. September 18, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
UPDATED 10/5

OK.

I'm figuring you, the reader, are in one of three categories:

A: A "newbie" who never played this game, either because it came out before you were born or you skipped it because you were too busy playing Mortal Kombat and Virtua Cop.

B: A non-RPG'er who got converted sometime in the past, and now is trying to make up for lost time.

C: Someone who played the original, and want to know if this game fits the bill.

I'll be as detailed as I can for all of you.

First, Dragon Warrior is indeed the 4th in the series, however it is the first in a trilogy called the Zenithia Trilogy. Part 4 we received stateside way back years ago on the NES. We never got parts 5 and 6; in my opinion, neither really had the appeal of part 4. This one attempts to tell a story the way I feel a story should be told: introduce each core character separately, as 'chapters', then bring them all together and finish on a strong note. IF you've ever played Phantasy Star III, it's kind of the same thing, only these peeps aren't related to one another. Note that when you beat Chapter 5, there is an additional Chapter which you must save after the credits and load to get access to. The NES version had no such additional Chapter.

Sometime in the late 90's-early 2k, Enix announced it was remaking Part 4 on the PlayStation. Needless to say, fans were absolutely ecstatic. It released in Japan, and it was like the world had ended...mobs of people picking up the game. Shortly before its US release date...Enix announced that we were not getting it due to what they claimed was the lack of ability to work with the translation and code. Needless to say, fans were absolutely irate. It wasn't pretty, trust me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good update if you ignore the silly accents October 20, 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm a HUGE fan of Dragon Warrior IV on the NES. This is an updated version.

Dungeons seem shorter, but are laid out exactly the same.
I think that shorter impression is due to the double screen on the DS...sometimes it's easier to not walk into dead ends which saves some time. Also, the characters walk a lot faster than the original NES game which makes dungeons seem a lot shorter.

The difficulty has been weakened in the early chapters, especially IMO Chapters 1 & 2. There's more money being handed out for sure, which also makes the curve easier as most of the time you can afford the best equipment - or get it pretty easily.

This did mean I got through the whole game with very little grinding of any sort.

Chapter 5 remains difficult at times. The tough spots in the original remain so. Unlike the earlier chapters, many Ch. 5 bosses are still tough and killed me on occasion. The end boss seemed a bit toned down but still tough - it took me twice to beat him using some very careful play the second time.

Overall, it's a very good update of the best NES RPG. Difficulty is a bit easier but bosses can still be tough.

Cons: The new accented translation ranges from silly to, in the case of the Ch. 2 area, downright awful. The easier difficulty is a minor con for me because I like games to stay tough, but it will probably be fine for DQ4 newbies or folks used to newer, easier games that seem to be the trend these days.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply amazing September 20, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you loved the old school rpgs from the nes and snes days then you'll love this game. As stated in other reviews, if you're a new gen gamer into awesome graphics and cut scenes with minimum strategy and storyline, then you may want to look somwhere else.
The other reviews pretty much hit it dead on so i'd just like to add a little more about the extra content that wasn't mentioned.

The original game consisted of 5 chapters and when you beat the Final boss in chapter five you completed the game. Now there are 6 chapters. After you beat the main game and finish the credits you can't start chapter 6. I don't want to spoil too much for you so i'll just say that there is an extra(and really long) dungeon with access to new items. There is also a mini game where you build your own village kind of like the one in DQVII. If you build your village to its maximum level, you will have access to some really strong items not found in the main story. There is also a secret character you can recruit. Again i won't spoil too much but this character is a powerhouse and an amazing addition to your entourage. Lastly, there is a new final boss, but you can only fight him with the addition of the secret character in your party.

I really think anyone could get into this game as long as they can get over the outdated graphics, but i think DQIV was already one of the best rpgs i've ever played, and the DS version perfected it in my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like turn based rpg's, it's a great game November 10, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I like rpg's that aren't too complicated. Usually by that I mean turn based rpgs. I find them relaxing. I also enjoy a good plot. I'm about 1/3 of a way through this game, and I've thoroughly enjoyed it.

The plot's fun so far. It's a cool twist to switch between characters every chapter. The accents were weird at first (and took a minute or two to understand since they don't warn you what's going on), but now I really like it. The different dialects make it seem like you really are traveling all around a world rather than one country that they call a world. (maybe the fact that I've done some world traveling and dealt with broken english in real life helps)

The graphics in town and in battle are very good. The map graphics are just ok. I like the 2-d characters on 3-d towns and dungeons. I thought that final fantasy 3 had pretty good ds graphics, but now I'm going to miss any game that doesn't use both screens for towns/dungeons. In most 3-d places, you can spin the screen with L or R which really lets you find your way in the dungeons. It also lets you find tons of doors and stuff that you wouldn't find otherwise. Even though I don't think the map graphics are anything to praise, I do like that fact that you can't rotate the world map since I'd get lost all the time... :)

I was disappointed that the enemies in the battles are so small, but really they're very well animated. The enemies don't have many attacks but this is a remake of a pretty old game so I'm sure that's the way it was in the original.

The music's very good, and I enjoy it through headphones more. Sometimes I just turn the music off, but I wear my headphones for this game!
