Dragon Quest VIII is hailed as a classic, and rightly so. Dragon Quest VIII on 3DS is a great place for new fans to jump on, as well as a perfect way for those who played it to relive a classic – and on the go, too! One of the PS2’s very best JRPGs is back, and it hasn’t aged a day.

Dragon Quest VIII was one of the finest JRPGs upon its initial release and it manages to retain that lofty status through this 3DS edition. Its adherence to the traditional rules of the genre is where it pulls its strength from, the familiarity of the template allowing the design team to worry about making sure each element is as good as it can possibly can be.

With no nostalgia factoring in, I’m left viewing Dragon Quest VIII in a mixed light. I have some real issues with it, but I still recognize its quality features. I acknowledge that I’m something of an outlier among the game’s audience. On a system with as many RPG choices as the 3DS, I’m okay with that.
