Dragon Quest Builders 2 has remarkable improvements, both large and small. Boss battle are now actually kind of fun. NPCs help you build some of the more ambitious projects, which lets you focus on doing your own thing. Malroth helps fight and gather resources, so you aren’t on your own. Other players’ creations are highlighted in loading screens and in-game bulletin boards, and you can easily visit (but not destroy) their worlds. This is one of those rare sequels that delivers on just about every front, so long as you’re able to put in the time it asks of you.

Dragon Quest Builders 2 is a great game, combining exploration, sandbox-building, questing, and town-management into a delightful package that will gladly suck up your time and put a big smile on your face. It's the sort of game that you'll intend to play for a little while, only to find that hours have flown by once you manage to actually put it down. Don't dismiss this one when you see big square blocks on the box--you'll be missing out on a very fun twist on an excellent gaming foundation.

While the game's performance issues, small text, and barebones online functionality put a slight damper on the fun, the ability to play the game wherever you want more than makes up for it. Whether you're new to the Builders series or are fresh off the original game, Dragon Quest Builders 2 is a great addition to the franchise and a solid choice for your Switch library.
Alessandro BarbosaJul 11, 2019
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.
Dalton CooperJul 28, 2019
Dragon Quest Builders 2 is a well-made game, but the story mode can be a drag and the multiplayer implementation may not be what fans expect. There is still room for improvement with this franchise, and it's easy to see how a third entry that addresses these concerns could very well end up being a classic.
Elizabeth HengesJul 12, 2019
Dragon Quest Builders 2 is in every right a proper sequel. It takes the good from the original Builders title and improves upon its weaknesses. Sure, maybe the characters prattle on a bit too long, and maybe it takes forever to find the torches in the bag that I know I made, but at this point, these are minor complaints with a game so jam-packed with stuff to do and things to create. If you liked the original Dragon Quest Builders, this is a must-play. Otherwise, if you enjoy Dragon Quest and enjoy building, I’d recommend giving Dragon Quest Builders 2 a go.
Leo FariaJul 19, 2019
I have no idea when I’ll stop playing it, if ever. I forgot to sleep, I forgot to answer emails, I forgot to do a lot of things because I just wanted to build more and more. Dragon Quest Builders 2 might not be the best game I played this year, but it’s one of the most entertaining titles I’ve played in years. That’s how you do a sequel.
GameCentralJul 12, 2019
The charming mix of Minecraft and Dragon Quest works even better the second time round, with a smart sequel that address the flaws of the original while adding plenty of new features of its own.
Cameron BaldJul 11, 2019
Dragon Quest Builders 2 is an inventive and engrossing sequel, offering a significant, graceful expansion of scale
Mitch VogelJul 11, 2019
Dragon Quest Builders 2 is a much more confident game than its predecessor, boldly expanding on its concepts, fixing many of its flaws, and providing an overall more robust adventure experience that fans won’t want to miss out on. Charming characters, a well-tuned gameplay loop, and near endless replayability ensure that you’ll be coming back to this one for quite some time, and though the performance issues are disappointing, we’d still highly recommend you pick up Dragon Quest Builders 2.
Jordan RudekJul 11, 2019
Dragon Quest Builders 2 features solid controls, attractive presentation, online multiplayer and limitless charm, but these don’t tell the whole story. Each element of the experience on its own would be less than impressive, but like a pile of wood, bricks, mortar, and steel before its shaped by human hands, the sum of its parts culminate in an impressive and memorable architecture.
Jhonatan CarneiroJul 28, 2019
Dragon Quest Builders 2 takes the base formula from creative sandbox titles such as Minecraft, and mixes it with the best elements from a lengthy JRPG. Its single-player campaign offers tons of quests to conquer, places to explore, and people to meet, resulting in a charming experience.
Rudy LavauxJul 11, 2019
Dragon Quest Builders 2 is simply everything that its predecessor was and then some, with some improved mechanics, more block types to choose from and a new and more interesting story. This is topped off by a much more social experience thanks to the great implementation of online sharing of creations and the inclusion, at last, of multiplayer. It further cements itself as a worthy contender for a Minecraft rival, while still being reasonably different enough that the two can coexist while appealing to different tastes. However the more ambitious graphical settings in docked mode compared to its predecessor result in a reduced level of performance, still keeping it from being the perfect version it could be on Switch where handheld play really makes it shine all the more.
Mikhail MadnaniJul 12, 2019
Overall, handheld mode is great for hiding some of the frame drops and the game itself looks very nice on the go. The big downside is battery life in portable play and unless you have a portable charger or expect to play for only an hour or so, you will need to put your Nintendo Switch on charge. The game itself is superlative but if you are mostly going to play docked, you may as well go PS4 for this game. In a perfect world, this release would have been tuned for a more stable frame rate and power consumption.
Miguel MoranJul 11, 2019
It was hard for me to imagine a way to expand on a game that was already so god but Dragon Quest Builders 2 has managed to do just that. A bigger story, new things to build, multi-player and more make this an absolutely jam-packed experience. Building game enthusiasts will love the blend of crafting and survival management, while Dragon Quest fans are sure to love the unique spin on the long-running JRPG franchise, and if you’re a fan of both? Well, Dragon Quest Builders 2 is the must have game of 2019.
Ben LyonsJul 11, 2019
With this being said, few games have offered a world as diverse, charming, and unique as the one present in Dragon Quest Builders 2, making for a great experience for players new and old alike.
Alan BellAug 02, 2019
Dragon Quest Builders 2 takes everything that made the first entry great, and refines it. While the core combat can be a bit on the dull side, the incredible options available for building and crafting make this one an absolute joy to play. Anyone remotely interested in building games and RPGs should do themselves a favour and play it ASAP. You'll quickly get lost in a charming world with seemingly endless options for fun.
Sergio C. GonzálezJul 11, 2019
Ideal para el verano o una tarde con amigos, un título que derrocha simpatía, buen hacer y creatividad a los cuatro costados. Casi infinito y con la constante sensación de saber que estamos en el universo Dragon Quest.
Ángel LlamasJul 11, 2019
Un agradable juego de construcción y rol que te gustará tanto si jugaste a la primera entrega de esta serie, como si lo que buscas es algo que te recuerde a Minecraft, pero con algo más de enjundia.
Jesús BellaJul 11, 2019
Sin duda, una buena continuación que agradará no sólo a los fans de Dragon Quest, sino a todo aquel que se sienta atraído por su divertida y adictiva propuesta de aventura y construcción.
Mathias OertelJul 11, 2019
Tecmo Koeis Omega Force hat das Fundament des Weltenbaus im Dragon-Quest-Universum an vielen Stellen optimiert oder verbessert. Der oberflächliche Kampf und die zähe Inszenierung sind jedoch Stolpersteine für den Motivationssog.
Fabien PellegriniJul 17, 2019
On peut considérer que je jeu va au-delà du simple assemblage de briques, car la partie scénarisée donne l'impression de construire de véritables communautés, tandis que l'île centrale nous donne carrément l'occasion de faire du terraforming et de modifier totalement le paysage. Quant à l'aspect multijoueurs, oublié dans le précédent volet, il est ici bien présent. On peut non seulement admirer les photos des autres joueurs et visiter leurs îles, mais également collaborer sur un projet de construction commun basé sur l'île d'un des participants. Minecraft n'a qu'à bien se tenir !
Thomas PillonJul 11, 2019
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.
AnagundJul 12, 2019
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 !

Resumidamente, estou a adorar Dragon Quest Builders 2, sendo desde já, facilmente, um dos meus favoritos do ano. Se gostaram do primeiro não têm como não se perderem na sequela, que apelará também aos adoradores de Minecraft e mais impressionante que isso, aos fãs da saga Dragon Quest, que têm tido sorte ultimamente, e que aqui vão encontrar umas reviravoltas inesquecíveis.
André ReisJul 24, 2019
Dragon Quest Builders 2 é um jogo bastante interessante e de qualidade muito acima do original. Uma verdadeira aventura Dragon Quest, contada à sua maneira. Recomendado sem qualquer margem de dúvida para os fãs da série, bem como todos os que gostam de passar horas a construir a cidade perfeita.
Gian Filippo SabaJul 11, 2019
Dragon Quest Builders 2 è uno dei migliori acquisti che possiate fare su Switch. Il titolo Square Enix è in grado di regalare ore e ore di divertimento, tanto da diventare una vera e propria droga dalla quale è davvero difficile separarsi. Per fortuna (o sfortuna) lo si può portare sempre con sé!
Nicolò BicegoJul 11, 2019
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.

Obsahovo ide o obrovskú hru, nie je to chudobný príbuzný Minecraftu a navyše je neustále doplňovaný príbehom. Ten napriek svojej naivite a patetickosti má potenciál pritiahnuť a motivuje ísť ďalej po questoch. To, že dialógy sú ploché a nezaujímavé je len špecifikom samotnej série alebo náročnejšími preferenciami hráča. Najdôležitejšia je zábava a tej má Dragon Quest Builders 2 na rozdávanie, takže neraz zabudnete na skutočný čas.
