Overall, playing Dragon Quest Builders 2 is just as fun, if not more fun than the first one. At a selling price of $59.99 USD, it is well worth the money. The main thing that has been drawing me to the Dragon Quest games of late is the use of characters that look like they are from Dragonball Z, which you can thank Akira Toriyama for. It is fun to create characters that are not something you know but to pretend they are something you know. I realize a lot of people will not pick up a game because of one man, but I know a lot of people who would.
Dragon Quest Builders 2 does everything right for a sequel to an excellent title. The core mechanics have been improved, so basic building remains engaging, while the minor issues with deconstruction and weapon management have been ironed out. This is especially true of combat, which feels much better than before. The addition of multiplayer is absolutely welcome, but it's limited to one island and there's no way to play the whole campaign this way. DQB2 is a treat that is just as good as the first game, and it's highly recommended for RPG fans with an itch for building and lots of time to burn.
Dragon Quest Builders 2 is an admirable RPG and an admirable building game which seems in most cases to have gotten the best bits of both of its parent genres. Clunky, overly straightforward combat and unintuitive controls drag it down a little bit, but it still manages to soar above all of the less ambitious Minecraft clones we’ve seen over the years. Even with the main story behind me, I’m still itching to spend time exploring its excellent environments and make them my own.
Dragon Quest Builders 2 improves upon the first game by adding interesting new mechanics and great combat, all while creating a lively world. Combined with its incredible writing and stirring music, the end result is, simply put, just a lot of fun to play.
Still, though, I had a really good time traveling through the world that has been brought to life within Dragon Quest Builders 2. If you’re looking for a good game that has plenty of content to keep you logging in every day, then this is one title you’ll want to check out.
Dragon Quest Builders 2 is a quintessential example of a great sequel. It takes everything that's fun about the first game and adds more of the good stuff while removing the mechanics that didn't work the first time around. It's slow to really get started, but once it starts rolling, you never want to stop digging, building, and fighting. If you're curious about the Dragon Quest Builders series on any level, Dragon Quest Builders 2 is a good jumping-on point.
It’s a game that captures the essence of fun and will make any RPG fan happy as they go from building a moderate little village in the hill into constructing an elaborate and gorgeous castle to share online with other players. It’s fun, it’s relaxing, and it’s worthy of the endless hours you will no doubt sink into this fun-filled world.
Dragon Quest Builders 2 is better than the original game in every possible way, introducing many quality of life improvements and fixing some of the biggest issues like the linear progression system and more. And with a simple yet engaging story, excellent exploration, crafting and building mechanics and multiplayer features, the game is an excellent title that no fan of the Dragon Quest series and sandbox games should pass on, even if they never played the original.
Dragon Quest Builders 2 refines its formula and cuts out many of the frustrations from the first game, delivering a more structured story and rewarding pacing that lets you see your hard work gradually blossom rather than be swept away. It's an engrossing sequel that is difficult to pull away from, and now far more welcoming to start too.
It's easy for me to say Dragon Quest Builders 2 is a good game because it'd be a lie for me to say otherwise. The groundwork laid by the first title is still sound, but it just didn't grab me the same way its predecessor did. That doesn't mean I'm going to stop playing anytime soon -- I still have my home island to complete -- but it does mean it's not going to get my undivided attention for weeks-on-end like the first game did.
I’m ecstatic that Square Enix took a gamble on this series. Dragon Quest is one of the oldest and most popular JRPG franchises, and its a perfect vehicle for this sort of gameplay. It’s colorful and friendly while still having enough adult themes to keep you hooked. I was glad to see a lot of the issues from the first game were rectified, and I can’t wait to see where the series goes from here.
Dragon Quest Builders 2 is a masterfully built game with a multitude of shiny new features that are just a joy every second you get to tinker with them. I could play this game for a very long time and never get bored with it. There’s something included here for fans of multiple genres and titles. Whether you’re a fan of the Dragon Quest series or not, this is a game you can jump into. While it’s certainly a spin-off from the mainline series, Dragon Quest Builders 2 may very well be one of the best game in the entire franchise.
At the end of the day, you probably already decided whether Dragon Quest Builders 2 was for you from reading the features list summary on Wikipedia or the storefront page of your choice. This doesn't reinvent the blocky cube wheel, and it doesn't do a whole lot to stand out other than refining its existing formula, but for fans of the original, that should be more than enough.
Dragon Quest Builders 2 does a lot of things better than its predecessor. A better story is propped up by better characters, and even though the opening hours are slow, there's a better overall flow to the game. All in all, Square Enix has constructed a rock solid sequel that, while safe and undeniably familiar, should satisfy both returning players and newcomers alike.
While an extremely guided and structured experience, Dragon Quest Builders 2 maintains enough of the charm of the franchise to be worth a look for fans. Players accustomed to free-play modes in other building sims will chafe at the story mode, but patient players that don’t mind a simple battle system and chatty NPCs will still find plenty of content here to enjoy.
Dragon Quest Builders 2 se desmarca de los grandes referentes de la construcción y supervivencia 3D y 2D -Minecraft y Terraria- gracias a sus elementos roleros y de historia, lo que sin duda para muchos es un punto decisivo para situarlo por encima de la competencia. Todavía hay margen de mejora y nos habría gustado por ejemplo que se hiciesen unos combates más interesantes, pero es evidente que en ningún momento se intenta darle más peso del necesario.
Dragon Quest Builders 2 es una oda a la creatividad. Un abrazo a la inocencia y un oasis en el que no importa lo que tienes sino lo que puedes llegar a hacer. Un mundo cuadrado, de líneas rectas que, sin embargo, no se corta en llegar (y pensar) más allá de los límites que otros han establecido. Un universo pensado específicamente para ser tiernos y amables sin que nadie nos acuse por ello. Un espacio para cuidar. Estamos ante un juego que, si lo interiorizamos, nos anima a ser un poco mejores. A enfrentarnos, bloque a bloque, a la vacía Destrucción.
Les indécrottables fans de la saga de Yuji Horii auront quant à eux toutes les raisons du monde pour repartir à l'aventure fleur au marteau, histoire de profiter pendant quelques dizaines d'heures d'un spin-off addictif et chronophage, porté par les douces mélodies de Koichi Sugiyama.
Dragon Quest Builders 2 est au-delà de nos espérances. Cette suite récupère l’essence du premier opus tout en corrigeant ses erreurs et en développant sa formule grâce à une liberté accrue. Voir les NPC vivre leur vie et participer aux constructions s’avère fun, voire grisant, surtout quand on arrive à l’aboutissement d’un gros projet. Avec des centaines d’objets, des salles variées et une surface de construction immense que l’on peut terraformer, pas sûr que vous en verrez le bout de si tôt ! Une incroyable ode à la créativité et à l’expérimentation que l’on vous conseille avec plaisir !
Dragon Quest Builders 2 è un titolo che potrebbe piacere ad un numero elevatissimo di giocatori, anche con gusti diametralmente diversi. Può convincere gli amanti degli RPG non troppo complessi, solleticare l'attenzione di chi cerca un'avventura spensierata e longeva, estasiare senza mezzi termini gli amanti del genere sandbox. Se avete amato Minecraft difficilmente spenderete meno di 100 ore con Dragon Quest Builders 2; se invece Minecraft non vi è mai piaciuto, potreste comunque valutare di provare la produzione, perché ha molto altro da offrire rispetto al semplice sandbox.
Se avete giocato ed apprezzato il primo Dragon Quest Builders, non attendete oltre; Dragon Quest Builders 2 migliora in tutto e per tutto ciò che il predecessore aveva da offrire, grazie ad un’esperienza più ricca e coesa e a piccoli ritocchi sul fronte tecnico e al gameplay. Il titolo è adatto anche a tutti quelli che sono sempre stati curiosi di provare un gioco “alla Minecraft” ma vorrebbero un’esperienza leggermente più guidata; fatto questo però che potrebbe far storcere il naso ad alcuni veterani. Chi invece non digerisce proprio questo genere, non troverà qui motivi per tornare sui propri passi.
Dragon Quest Builders 2 è gigantesco, e migliora il gioco originale sotto ogni aspetto degno di nota. Il sistema di combattimento resta piuttosto semplicistico e poco accattivante, ma va ricordato che agitare i pugni non è certo l’obiettivo primario che il gioco si propone. Se da piccoli amavate i LEGO e andate pazzi per la saga di Dragon Quest non potete davvero sbagliare, possibilmente mettendo in conto la perdita di svariate ore di sonno.
Wat minder goed door de beugel kan is het te simpele vechtsysteem dat meer als afleiding dan plezier aanvoelt. Dat kun je beter met vier personen doen in de online-modus van de game, want dan ben je snel van die vijanden af. Vervolgens is het tijd om samen met vrienden te genieten van het bouwen. Het is verreweg het beste onderdeel van de game, al is het in de multiplayer soms moeilijk om met elkaar te communiceren.
