Dragon Quest and its next two sequels, Dragon Quest II and III, are historic JRPGs, with a special place in the hearts of many of we NES veterans. A re-release of these three classics coincides with a release of the newest entry in the series and capitalizes on nostalgia that the games engender. By and large, the re-release does the series justice, and gives an opportunity for a new generation to enjoy experiences from the early days of video gaming – for better or for worse.
Overall, Dragon Quest II is a port of a port that’s just ‘fair’. It’s an old-school RPG with some enhanced graphics to give it a slightly fresher feel, but the framerate is choppy and jarring. It’s not the first time we’ve seen this re-released, though if you’re a fan outside of Japan – particularly in Europe or Australia – this version of a classic RPG might still be a treat for you.
The Erdrick Trilogy of Dragon Quest games marks the origins of console RPGs in a truly epic way. Although not every game has held up perfectly over the years, what's here should definitely be in a museum somewhere.
