  • Awesome Game

    By Sskenshin
    I’m a huge JRPG fan and always wondered why Dragon Quest was more popular in Japan then Final Fantasy. I had tried Dragon Quest VIII when it first came out and I couldn’t get into for some reason. Recently I tried again with this game and I am loving it. Definitely worth playing. I never wanted to try it because I wasn’t fan of the First Person View in the battles. I have gotten use to it and it has been a blast. Once I’m done with this I will buy the other games while I wait for Dragon Quest XI on the Switch! The only down side is that it is not optimized for the iPhone XS Max and Xr.
  • Great Game on ipad

  • Great game

    By toby4569
    It enjoyed it a lot on the iPhone X
  • Fantastic game, great execution

    By RHeckenkamp
    I'm usually concerned about on screen controls, but this game does it amazing well. Movement consists of an eight direction virtual joystick with a button in the middle. You can change it so the joystick is on the left side, right side, or centered. I found it easy to change to suit how I was sitting or laying down at the time. All menus including selecting combat commands is done by tapping through the menus on screen.
  • Great game, needs some work

    By -Ashwing-
    The game is great DQ5 is one of the best Dragon Quest has to offer. There are a few issues like the over world has visible seams. The biggest problem is there is no phone audio (music or audiobooks) able to be played while grinding. This makes for a more grinding experience.
  • Great story great game

  • Won't let you progress

    By Chucklepuff
    The game won't let you progress past the boat scene... not sure if this is a legit copy.
  • I hate JRPGs

    By ZooberDude
    I really dislike JRPGs for the type of game they are, and this game fits the mold perfectly and delivers exactly what I dislike: annoyingly strict linearity, painfully cliche and predictable writing and characters, the silent protagonist projection model, the "collect items to save the world from the evil empire" skeleton-frame plot, the tragic background of the hero and his friends, and, above all, the illusion that 40hours of gameplay isn't made up entirely of walking into "random" encounters on the grid every fifteen steps + mini-game grinding. Seriously, if they took out the grinding this game would probably take about 2 hours from start to finish with time for snacks and bathroom breaks. I purchased this game because of all the praise it receives as one of the best, if not the best, JRPGs of all time, and because it is a very good port. I had been feeling the (irrational and/or insane?) urge to play a classic JRPG reminiscent of final fantasy "2/4" that I played on the SNES many years ago. Because final fantasy "2/4" on the AppStore is a terrifyingly horrible 3D mocking parody of a once beautiful game, I hadn't quite got my fix when I wasted my money on that graphical eyesore. I should have learned my lesson before I purchased this game, but I am not entirely disappointed in and annoyed at my purchase, just bothered by the genre as a whole. DQ5 definitely works fine for iPhone without any noticeable bugs. The translation is fairly high quality for most of the characters, although the main villain seems to have difficulty forming a coherent sentence, which honestly surprised me because the rest of the translation is top notch. It is a decent port for a JRPG, which is why I give it four stars, because it is exactly what it claims to be and there is no freemium model. I took one away because I don't believe the price is justified. But overall, if you like JRPGs, then you will adore this game: it embodies everything a JRPG has ever been, and in comparison to its low-performing counterparts of the genre, it is well-written and designed. I even found myself mildly interested in the story about halfway through, despite my reoccurring grumpiness at the perpetual grind. I, however, could not finish it, but I haven't deleted it yet because I hope that my insanity will return one day and I can put my nose back to the virtual grindstone to see how it ends.
  • I Noticed A Few Bugs

    By MetroidZero
    While playing through I notice a few bugs. When you use zoom it causes a bit of lag in the game. And sometimes the music will skip for a fraction of the second without finding probable cause for this I recommend you look into this. Other then that it's a great game and runs smoothly.
  • The greatest story ever told

    By UncleSlam Temple
    ....(sigh)....I would like to take a little time to talk about possibly the greatest RPG of all time...Dragon Quest 5. So its been a little over a month now since I've embarked on this unforgettable journey through the breathtakingly emotional Dragon Quest saga, and I can't possibly stress the words "breathtakingly emotional" enough because its taking all I have to hold back tears while I am writing this review, as I have just beaten the main story and the entire 45+ hour experience is still very fresh in my mind. I've stated in my review for Dragon Quest 4 that the storylines (very much like the ones for the Final Fantasy ffranchise) become more and more engrossing and emotionally potent with each and every release, always wondering to myself "how on earth can they possibly top this?!" Well my friends, I believe I have finally reached the very pennicle in story telling, the true holy grail of RPG storylines...behold...Dragon Quest 5. Ever since I made the choice to play all the DQ games on the app store, I think I was always most excited to play DQ5 more than any other title in the franchise (along with DQ8) due to the fact that I've seen multiple video reviews on youtube and other such sources that Dragon Quest is among if now the most loved, and most critically acclaimed installment in the entire series, saying that it is one of the greatest RPG's of all time, mostly due to its extraoridinarily well told storyline, and I don't think I could possibly conqer with anything more if I tried. The game spans ove three generations from you and your father, to your very own children. starting out the game as a little boy at your father's side to rescue your long-lost kidnapped mother, to growing into an adult and getting married and having kids of your own, and the way the beyond brilliant writters spanned the time between generations, chock full of UNFORGETTABLE bonds and friendships, as well as some of the most heartbreaking and forboding events in videogame history, is absolutley nothing short of miraculous. See, just as I was writing that last sentence, all those heartbreaking moments came flooding back, and I had to pause to hold back a few tears. Not all is despaire however, because this game is filled with enough amazingly heartwarming moments to sort of balance it all out, and I think it was the heartwarming moments that had me crying like a baby. I really truley can't ever say enough good things about this storyline you guys. As a matter of fact, as far as pure storytelling goes, I think I would have to place Dragon Quest 5 as the greatest storyline of all time, even above Final Fantasy 7...(wow). Aside from the out-of-this-world storyline, there exists one of the very best battle mechanics I've ever played in an RPG. I of course am referring to the totally A-W-E-S-O-M-E monster recruiting system! Its like a wonderful mix of Pokemon thrown right in! You can travel the world and recruit a wide array of different monsters that you randomally encounter, with an equally vast selection of weapons and armor to outfit your new furry friends, as well as many monster exclusive spells and abilities that really give birth to nearly infinite strategic possibilities. One of my very favorite parts of the game hoever is the fact that after a long day of piliging, you can kick your feet up and get lost for HOURS in the biggest and most exciting collection of mini games I've ever seen! From the casino which includes poker, slots, monster arena, and even introducing slime races, and the almighty totally friggn' awesome as @#$% T n' T board game!!!!!!!!! Even a fun litthe arcade game called "bruisn' ooze", which is essentially a slime themed whack a' mole!!!!! I have been a huge fane of the Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z series ever since I was a little kid. With the amazing storytelling and the gorgeous animation, It only makes since that some point in my like I would eventually gravitate to the Dragon Quest games, I just wish it wouldnt've taken me this long. I mean considering that it was created by the same people it was bound to happen sooner or later. I suppose I can place the blame on the fact that Dragon Quest never got the very much deserved recognition and popularity in the states as it did in Japan...oh well. All that matters now is that I have it in my life now and I am never letting go. I know that I've thanked the Square Enix team in the past for bring these essential RPG classics to the app store, but I just wanted to thank them again...THANK YOU SO VERY VERY VERY VERY MUCH SE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Next stop...Dragon Quest 6!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
