Beautiful Game
19 June 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Dragon Quest 8, a story about a traveling company to find the evil jest Dhoulmages, who stole the Scepter from the Kingdom of Trodain. With the scepter's power, he turned the King of Trodain into a small, green creature, and his only daughter, Medea, into a beautiful horse. Along with those powers, came thorns that covered the castle with it's tight grasp, turning everyone to stone, except for the King, Medea, and another person, whose name is chosen by the gamer, I will refer to him as HERO, as the guide mentions him.

I have not finished this game yet, for it is very long, and you must take breath-taking hours looking for all the treasure chests in this huge world, so vast it will take you many hours to explore all of it, while the first 3/4 of the game is on foot, or by sea. The rest you fly on a bird, and certain locations come to your disposal. I love the graphics in this game also. Not many people like these graphics, but I happen to love these cartoon graphics, which I believe it to make the gamer more involved with it, and there is a little bit of humor in it. Which leads me to my favorite character, Angelo. Strong with the sword, and strong with the heart. Very smart I believe, and very nice.

But the thing I love the most out of this amazing game, is the music. I have not heard such beautiful music in my life in any game, not even Shadow of the Colossus fulfills this goal. Especially the World Map. That song just gives me goosebumps whenever I listen to it, and sometimes I find myself just staring into space, looking at my wall, listening to it and doing nothing. Another song that really gives me goosebumps is the song when you are on the ship. That is my favorite song in the game, and i could listen to it all day long and easily fall asleep to it. Since I haven't finished the game yet, I will eventually like another song.

Definant 9/10.
