In the end, this is a game you can't really assign a score to. On the one hand, Dragon Quest 2 is completely solid and enjoyable by itself. The port is good in terms of presentation, but it really did need some extra attention to help ease that transition into the modern era. If you're good with retro blemishes and don't mind having to put up with some iffy features, then jump right in. If not, you'd probably want to look elsewhere for your first, or next, Dragon Quest experience.

Dragon Quest I, II and III on the Switch are great picks, especially if you enjoyed the recent eleventh entry and wanted to experience the origins of this great series. However, these are ports of the mobile versions with some audio and visual enhancements. So if you have them on your mobile phone already, there is little point in picking them up on the Switch again, unless you really want to play them on your TV in full glory.

At the end of the day, the Eldrick trilogy will likely feel too dated for gamers looking to take the first step into the world of Dragon Quest, but the games are definitely worth playing for established franchise fans who haven't already worked through them or are looking for a bit of nostalgia. The mechanics and storytelling techniques are just a bit too old school to win over new fans, but seeing the roots of the now-iconic franchise is a great experience for fans.
