5.0 out of 5 stars Never has an NES RPG held so much depth December 24, 2001
As the title implies this is Enix at it's very best. THe last Dragon Warrior game to appear on the NES and it goes out with a bang. Lets start with the length of the game, 5 chapters, five stories all eventually intertwined. A crew of 7 main characters, and at least 7 or more alternate/ incontrollable characters. Literally over 50 or more hours of gameplay guarentee, and an incredible story that rivals even the Great Final Fantasy of today. Obviously to a gamer who is just entering or was weened on the likes of Final Fantasy 7, 8, and 9 they might be disgusted by the repetitive level building, or need to actually search for a few things, or ancient graphics, but the masterful story will keep most in tuined. In fact if my memory serves me right ENIX is remaking this title for the PSX and plans to have it out before the sytem dies (They had an SNES remake but the system died before it was released). If this game does return to Amercian shores it will be worth purchasing no matter what. Own this, buy this, steal it, import it, it doesn't matter oen this title. YOu will not be disapointed. I still play it to this day (When my system works).

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the top 3 RPGs for the NES September 12, 2005
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Dragon Warrior 4 is quite possibly the most complex RPG ever to grace the NES. The storyline consists of five chapters, eight characters, a small gang of playable auxiliary characters (that have a personality), and a ton of places to visit and explore.

The first four chapters of the game serve as a prelude to the final, main chapter. In the first four chapters, you are introduced to the supporting characters in the game as they tackle subquest after subquest without being aware of their larger purpose of restoring peace and serenity to the world. This part of the game can go a bit slowly because you have to literally level up four different parties, which means fighting lots of basic enemies like Slimes and Kaskos Hoppers and Giant Worms. However, the storylines make sense and there are some tough dungeons to contend with.

The fifth and final chapter introduces the hero and starts off with a bang. You then spend the rest of the game locating the supporting characters, finding the legendary weapons, and putting an end to Necrosaro and his evil designs. This quest is very long and involves lots of subquests and plot twists. The game's difficulty ramps up considerably in this chapter and you'll have a lot of tough fights.

Technically speaking, the graphics are only a slight improvement compared to the previous games in the series, but they are a bit brighter and more colorful. The enemies are well-drawn and the dungeons are expansive. The sound effects are adequate and the music does a good job of matching the situation. The ship music in particular is good.

My biggest complaint with this game is the tactics system in Chapter 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars ALMOST made it to a newer-generation system January 29, 2004
There was a time, shortly after Enix released Dragon Warrior VII for PSX, that this game, with a major PlayStation facelift, ALMOST made it onto the newer system and into new gamers' game libraries. I think it was released in Japan, but fate frowned on us and financial concerns led it to never reach the US.
Who cares? ME!!! :~-{ (my emoticon is trying to cry) So many RPGs I play engross me, offer me many hours of fun and enjoyment, but fade from memory within weeks of completing them. Not this one. The story, the game's layout, the amazingly deep characters for this old an RPG, and Necrosaro all keep this game right up there with Lufia I and II and Final Fantasy IV and VIII and Xenogears and Chrono Trigger on my list of favorite RPGs of all time. And I will never get to play it on a newer system. :~-{ :~-{
:~-{ :~-{ :~-{ :~-{
I'll quit pouting long enough to remind myself - Eureka! The NES version is still out there! My NES long since kicked it, but if you have any, ANY means of playing this game do it. It is one of the best ever made. But never on PSX. Back to the handkerchief.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best RPG's of all time July 11, 2001
This is an epic adventure like no other. The game is broken down into 5 chapters, each of which has a quest that goes along with it. In Chapters 1 through 4 you play as different characters ranging from a royal soldier to a princess to a merchant. Each of these chapters is unique. The fifth and final chapter finds you controlling the hero at long last. Eventually, you meet up with the other characters you controlled in the previous 4 chapters. This is where the ultimate fun begins. The battle system is basically the same as in the previous Dragon Warrior games in the NES. The one and only drawback I found in the game came in chapter 5. You only control the hero, while the other characters in your party are automatically controlled. You do have the ability to change the overall strategy of the party, but not with the complete control that one desires. Overall though, the game and story are very entertaining and I recommend this game to any fan of the true RPG genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars best rpg ever made May 6, 2002
By A Customer
like all arts, the art of rpg making reached its zenith at its beginning and has steadily declined ever since. Here is a game subject to all the constrictions of the old NES: midi music, primitive graphics etc. yet it remains the best rpg ever made to this day. It is the best rpg of the age of "antiquity" of video games. The ammount of creative effort put into this classic and the emotional depths of every detail compensates any advancement in graphics and animation of the last 10 years. This game is like an epic novel. A true classic.

In the realm of 8-bit graphics and extremely limited storage space, Nintendo RPGs (and other RPGs of the time) had a difficult time telling expansive, immersive stories. Read more

One of the best NES RPGs ever made. Dragon Warrior IV may not have graphics or sound that compare with more recent RPGs but the engrossing story line more than makes up for it. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Good but not Great by today's standards
This is a very good game by all measures. It consists of 5 chapters all of which are thoroughly entertaining. Use of a wagon allows the party to balloon to 8 or 9 characters. Read more
