Did You Know?


Until the 2000s, Dragon Quest games were localized in America under the name Dragon Warrior. This is to avoid infringing on the copyrights of an American tabletop RPG game called DragonQuest. Ironically, there was a similar tabletop game called Dragon Warrior, though this didn't cause any legal problems. See more »

Classic Game for Original 8-bit Nintendo
16 November 2001 | by (5th sector on planet "ffokrejaruoy") – See all my reviews

ha who would of thought someone would review this eh? Well that's why I thought I would do it since no one else probably will. Anyway this is a RPG classic I once fell aleep while playing this game, not only that but I still had the controller in my hands while snoozing, true story. Although this game is ugly as sin by today's standards it's still a classic game and if there's still anyone out there who still plays their original nintendo then you should check this out(along with the original Final Fantasy much better than the crap they make now.While i'm at it if it's final then why in the hell have they made nine sequels,how many Video game or movie series have NINE sequels. Answer not very many at all off the top of my head I can think of one The friday the 13th movie series and most are not very good, not worth the dust particles on my shoe string. So my question why is it called Final Fantasy Maybe since we already know square soft will make another NINE sequals each getting worse and more ridiculus as they go, maybe they shoud change the name to Perpetual Fantasy, sounds more fitting.Also if any Die-hard FF fans come along don't be a moron and give me harsh words because your games are not to my liking i've liked the originals (I,II,&III) because they were good the rest of what i've played are down hill although i haven't seen IV since it was just released in the U.S., so basically when they decided to change to 3d(Big Mistake) fill the games with stupid story lines they shot their self in the foot then continued to nail it to the ground with a sledge hammer.Another thing I don't like all of this future crap thrown into it.If i wanted sci-fi I'd watch Aliens or bladerunner or you get the point. FF was supposed to be a fantasy blade and bow style game, they seemed to of lost sight of that afterall that's what most of the original RPG's were based on. If your still mad about me spilling the beans and the truth on your favorite "New Age" RPG line FF, I think we can call it that now, don't bother leaving me your unknowing thoughts about why it's still a good game because it's not, their more concerned with how good their silly little video clips are than the actual game.Remember you watch video clips you don't play them.)

Oh yea did you want me to finish my dragon warrior review ok that i'm done fuming about FF (or PF as I call it) we can talk about DW, anyway it's much better game wise and more true to it's ROOTS!!! and there's not an endless amount of sequals for this one either and it's been around about the same amount of time. not much to say about the game except that the graphics are now ugly but if you like fun classic RPG's then this is one for you as matter of fact i'd put it on my top ten list if I had one.there's also DW II & III released on the NES I believe and i've heard that their releasing a new one in the U.S. still in 2d format(not for spoiled teens who only get an itch in their pants for GRAPHICS because it will only be a bunch of high detailed sprites not polgons, I think it's to be released for the playstation.

Also castlevania fans their releasing the once japan only castlevania(2d sorry newbies that must have 3d)but it seems to be hard to find and it wasn't on konami's website last time I checked so it might take some looking to find it.
