description

A vast and vibrant world is yours to explore in the latest installment of this legendary role-playing series.

A mysterious jester. A forbidden scepter. A fiendish curse. A once idyllic kingdom lies entangled in a web of enchanted vines, its king and princess hideously transformed, its castle and subjects frozen in time. Only one person has survived this horror unscathed: you!

Only you can save your king and country by lifting the shadow of the evil jester's curse... But it won't be easy. An epic tale of friendship, bravery, and adventure awaits you on the grassy fields, snow-capped mountains, and restless seas of Dragon Quest VIII!

Old school is good.
When I first got this game, I feared it would be too different from other Dragon Quests, which I love.

But after playing for a few minutes, I realized all my fears were baseless. This game, despite having the some of the most gorgeous graphics on PS2, still felt like I was playing the classics. I don\'t know how they managed it, but that\'s true.

The best jump-in point for new fans, who\'d be kept away by older graphics. Once they play this, they may end up appreciating the rest of the game, and give the old entries of the series a chance (they\'d be glad they did).

Definitely get either this or the translated version. This is a must.

Great Game
This is probably my favorite DQ game in the whole series. The graphics are smooth, there are next to no load times, and the battles are sweet. They even kept the old school sounds for some things, like going up stairs, an enemy missing you, or casting a spell. It\'s a heroic step forward for the series that\'s always proven it have never forgotten it\'s roots. It\'s just a blast to play. You can gain skill with different types of weapons and learn different skills as you level, effictively tailoring your characters as you see fit. This is a must have for DQ fans. Dont expect an american release until December of 2005. The extra costumes for Jessica may also be taken out. So grab this while you can!

A+
Marvellous graphics, wonderful music, innovative characters, a beautifully-shaped nature in 3D and an exiting story make this game a definite 5 star candidate.

The Best
The graphic is fantatic, The best DQ game ever made! Too bad is there only 4 main characters, whish they could design more character. And also miss out the class section( you can choose to be knight, cleric...etc)
