A Monster Scouting Report

To gain strength through monsters is the key to success in Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2. Playing as Monster Scouts, you can recruit wild monsters to build a team and battle against other players in dynamic turn-based role-playing game action. Each year, monster scouts from around the world gather to compete for the title of world's greatest scout. Players crash-land on a mysterious island after their airship is struck by lightning. They must rescue their missing passengers and crew members by fighting various enemies using their own monster parties. The only way off the island is to solve its many mysteries.

Key Game Features

  • Become the world's greatest Monster Scout in Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2, a spinoff of the fan-favorite Dragon Quest core series. Players scout and collect monsters in order to build a team to battle enemies.
  • When a player's party encounters other monsters in a battle, they can try to recruit those monsters with their scouting skills. A meter on the top screen indicates the chance that players can scout a monster. The higher the number, the higher the chance the monster will join a player’s party.
  • More than 300 different monsters are available to scout and synthesize. By synthesizing two different monsters, players can create new, more powerful monsters. These monsters can be customized using more than 240 skill trees. Some monsters return from previous Dragon Quest games, while others are new.
  • In battles, monsters level up to learn new skills and become more powerful.
  • Players can battle their monster teams against one another using a local wireless connection. Or, using a broadband Internet connection, they can connect to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection to battle against other players.
  • The Wi-Fi World Tournament lets players battle against other monster teams around the world.
  • The game supports a variety of Tag Mode options that let players connect and share data with others:
    • Players who connect via Tag Mode with owners of Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation or Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies can scout monsters from those games.
    • Players who connect via Tag Mode with other Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 players can battle against them and have a chance to scout their monsters without affecting their games.

By Robert Hlozek on September 29, 2011
The original DQM: Joker was a fun monster hunting game, but a bit a flawed. The sequel addresses virtually every problem of its predecessor and adds several new features that really make this an impressive game. The only real complaint I had was the graphics. While they were a step up from DQM: Joker they still felt a big step backwards from Dragon Quest IX. The pacing also feels a little slow at time too, though not as bad as it was in DQM: Joker. Those are minor gripes though and any Dragon Quest fan will be happy with this game.

As far as what's new, the biggest change in the game is in regards to your party of monsters. Traditionally monsters parties consisted of three different monsters. Now you have 3 available slots that can be taken up by 3 regular sized monsters, or a combination of larger sized monsters. These larger monsters can take up 2 or all 3 slot, and usually are significantly stronger than other monsters available to the player at that time. It changes up a player's strategy, since the team is now smaller, but they provides extra tactical advantages and are almost always a benefit.

But what really makes DQM: Joker 2 shine is all of the small changes to the game. Many monsters now have special passive attributes. A poisonous Bubble Slime may poison an attack simply by being attacked. Others might automatical heal or increase a teammate's tension/psyche level. Outside of combat the environments/hunting grounds got an extra level of realism. In addition to the day/night cycle there is also a chance of inclement weather that usually brings out stronger monsters and can also allow players to enter areas that were previously unavailable.

To call DQMJ2 short isn't correct. But the ending of the game leaves much to be desired. You feel like you spend time building up your team in preparation to become a champion and explore the world. The reality is not exactly that.

I felt let down by the world and the overall story of the game. Without getting spoilers involved I'll end there and say the reason DQMJ2 gets a 3 star is in fun and mechanics of the game itself. Once you start the game you really can't put it down, you always want to tweak and synthesize your team and constantly seek out newer and more powerful monsters.

If you come from a pokemon background and collecting is your goal, the game will not disappoint. If you come from a JRPG background than the story and world will.

It's hard to make a review for this game being my expectations were much different than what was delivered. In some ways I feel the game designers did an excellent job, and in others I wish they would have thrown whatever plans they had and made a DQM 1.7 release copying the format of the previous title.

Why? Because DQM Joker 2 just doesn't have the laid back feel of the previous title. Without giving away too much of the story line, you are relatively stranded and unlock regions to search as you go. Some areas feel much less creative, and going to regions feels "game-like" if you understand what I mean. Rather than having an intuitive reason behind travel, a menu like screen with a map pops up and asks you to click which area you would like to travel to, instead of having certain docks that bring you to certain regions as in the last game.
Edit: Even traveling inside of a map feels very game-like which aids to remove the player from having an emotional response to the game play. This is done by creating small areas with warp like exits that seem clearly navigable. The gameplay generally goes according to the paradigm: Walk around in small area, warp through a clearly navigable area, reappear in new area and repeat. There are some new things like climbing up extensively high walls and slowly walking across a narrow ridge against a cliff wall, both of which the designers tediously overuse. ***This paragraph is to contrast with relative inclusion of an actual island that is completely and entirely explorable and which uses warps only when traveling into a cave.

I have only logged about 18 hours on this game SO FAR but I love it! If you played the first one all the reviews that say this one is much improved are correct. It's not an easier game but access to everything is easier...a much better system for managing your items, monsters, equipment, etc. Sure there's a lot of grinding involved but that just goes with these types of games, doesn't it? I have thoroughly enjoyed online wi-fi play as well. I'd recommend this game to people who like the "collecting" games or dungeon crawlers...I think it would appeal to people of all ages that are statistic oriented collectors. This game seems to have tons of hours of play and friend codes and wi-fi make it a really great bang for your buck. I abandoned DQM Joker after about 30 hours but when I began it the online play had already been discontinued. This game is a good price for the many hours you can play.
