I just got this game, and it's just such a surge of nostalgia for me. Totally reminds me of the 16-bit RPGs I played as a wee lad. Of course, the visuals are vastly upgraded, but the throwback gameplay and the Toriyama character designs definitely take me back to Lunar, Shining Force and Chrono Trigger. Awesome game thus far!

ive seen the ads for it and its cool, but it seems it rips of DBZ. or did Dragon Quest come before DBZ, then that would mean that DBZ is a rip off of DragonQuest.

They have the same character designer. And yes, Dragon Quest came first.

How is it a rip off anything if it's drawn by the same artist? You can't copy off yourself....

I've seen a few commercials of this game. I've gotten pretty interested...maybe I'll rent it sometime.

Yea, I picked up DQ8 and FMA2 the other day. I'm almost done working my way through FMA2 and then I plan to huddle down and play DQ8 for the rest of my Christmas Break.

So out of 10, what would you rate this game? Honestly! Something I should buy or it's not the best, but it's rent worthy? You know I'm a serious gamer tongue.gif

That depends how nostalgic you are, I suppose. It's a lot of fun, and the graphics & sound are phenomenal, but the plot is very simple by today's RPG standards. So if you've been around long enough to appreciate this type of throwback RPG, it's definitely a solid 9. But all these kids who are spoiled by the FFXs of the world might not take to it as much.

I really am enjoying DQ8. the graphics are great and it has an awsome story line. However the thing I like the most is that the game is easy to follow. You really can't get lost in the game.

This game has been really good. The old school feeling of a DQ is great. I enjoy it more than the others because the updated graphics make it even better to travel and train than it used to be.

I finally started playing this game seriously, and I'm so in love. I'm almost at a loss of words for how freaking awesome this game turned out to be. Although, Dhoulmagus is handing my ass to me repeatedly. Any tips?

Just keep leveling up. Once Angelo gets to level 31 or 32 he learns Multiheal. After that, both fights are a breeze.

Also it's important to trick out your monster team, and make sure you have Talos [becomes available on Neos island after you add Goldman] in there, because he can do major damage.

Got it! I'm only at level 25 with Angelo, but I already have Talos. I probably do need to upgrade my monster team.

For the Dhoulmagus fight you can win the first part then lose the second so that when you go back to fight him you'll be fully healed and can start fighting him in his second form.

As for money and anything yoor scared about losing just put it in the bank.
