Dragon Quest IX

Nintendo DS


Taken in the context of the series, Dragon Quest IX is a strange game. It’s the first in the franchise to debut on a handheld, and it changes the classic formula in some significant ways. In many cases, these changes push the genre in interesting directions, but they never go far enough. The end result is an enjoyable Japanese RPG with mere hints of greatness. Dragon Quest has always had religious undertones -- you save the game by confessing at a church, after all -- but DQ IX embraces those themes. You play as this fantasy world’s equivalent of an angel, and your sole reason for existing
