It has a great story, each character has a good development and a good option for players to start with the series of Dragon Quest.

For veterans they can play with the 2d version which all the encounters are random. For those who don't like random encounters they can play 3d version which you can decide fight or not.

The post game is a festival grinding to finish the game, but I highly recommend to finish the post game.

It took me 90 hours to finish the main story, Square still the best RPG maker so far, the story is very deep, graphics are awesome and my favorite combat style, this game is a gem.

Dragon Quest XI S is a mouthful of a title, but the gameplay is as epic and rewarding to find out more. It carries a system that has paved the series as a JRPG granddad that tells a heartfelt story of adventure and friendship. The cast of characters while archetypal give out laughs and experiences that are worth the story and development. One thing that may get players off is the grind at some point, which takes precedence due to an unforgiving xp system, The final boss fight was worth the months of grinding. Sure the saving the world bit has been said and done as the destination, but it's the journey that makes Dragon Quest XI a treat to play.

Dragon Quest XI Definitive Edition is a monumental game. It highlights everything the original already got right and adds so many unique features that enhance an already phenomenal experience. It’s a stand-out success for JRPG’s and RPG’s in general, both a modern epic and classic in every sense of the word.

The story expands in meaningful ways for party members; the 2D mode, orchestral soundtrack, and language options offer a variety of worthwhile choices for subsequent playthroughs, and it looks and runs fabulously. Whether you're looking for a fresh new way to play through Dragon Quest 11 another time, or you've yet to experience this must-play RPG, it's hard not to recommend Dragon Quest 11 S: Echoes of an Elusive Age - Definitive Edition over any other version.

Overall, there are not many negative things I can say about Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age - Definitive Edition. This version took the foundation of an already truly excellent RPG experience and built upon it further, offering new features and quality of life improvements along the way. I poured over a hundred and twelve hours into Dragon Quest XI S, which is more than I've spent on any other RPG recently, and I never once looked back with regret as I wholeheartedly fell in love with the gameplay and story.
