Why does Dragon Quest Sentinel of the Starry Skies

#1xxxxxnPosted 1/12/2013 1:09:28 PM
Get so many negative reviews on Gamefaqs saying its not as good as other Dragon Quest games? This was actually my first Dragon Quest game and I thought it was pretty good at least it had me addicted that's for sure.

I hear people complaining about how the story isn't very deep but I found that the story drew me in. Each place I went to it was like a fun little bite sized chapter.

I think because of the generic story quests. And then they praised the older game that was ported to the ds after saying it was better than starry skies. strange isnt it?

I found the game to be exceedingly boring and the soundtrack certainly matched that as well.

I remember trying Dragon Quest 5 one time though and kinda liking it. I probably should get back to that sometime.

really dqix is like a zelda game story wise good at the beginning and the end but kinda boring in the middle.
that said dqix has a better story then any zelda game expect the three most recent console titles

DQIX was actually one of my favorite entries in the series.

I liked it okay, but the last boss was such a let down.

Me+ 2 Gladiators took him down in less that 10 turns.

Lame.
