Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age será no dia 4 de setembro para PS4 e PC. Confira logo acima a abertura do jogo.
Enix, and by proxy Square, have found myriad ways to repackage the journey of Dragon Quest and Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age proves that they haven’t run out of ideas yet. It’s one of the easier modern Dragon Quests to get into precisely because it gets back to basics. If you’ve been pining for an older-school character-focused RPG instead of the player-created party focus of IX and the MMO aspect of X, the wait has ended.
Dragon Quest XI is an incredible example of how to take a classic series and modernize it with updated graphics and voice acting while still keeping what made the original so charming. If the story stayed strong all the way through, it would be my favorite in the series hands-down. Nevertheless, it’s still in the top three Dragon Quests that I’ve ever played.
RPG Site: 10/10
I cannot recommend Dragon Quest XI enough. It has the best story for the series in ages, giving new players and veterans a reason to engage with the game world and connect with the characters that live in it. The RPG manages to walk the fine line between old-school style and modern upgrades, creating gameplay that is both familiar and refreshing. Dragon Quest XI is not only the best game of the long-running series, it’s one of the best JRPGs in recent years that I’ve played. Whether this is your first Dragon Quest game or you’re a series veteran, you owe yourself to play this game.
Innovation in games is talked about a lot, but it’s also great to see traditional gameplay formulas that have been around for decades presented exceptionally well. Dragon Quest XI is one of the best modern examples of this; its beautiful presentation, both visual- and story-wise, combines with a tried-and-true gameplay formula for a journey that’s full of heart and soul. Once you find yourself sucked into the world of Dragon Quest XI, it’s going to be hard to put down until you reach the grand finale.
: 9/10 GamingBolt
Dragon Quest XI is a stellar game that displays a great command of the ins and outs of its genre the way few other games can and do. What it lacks in originality, it more than makes up for with its confident execution of ideas, showing that a game doesn’t need to be revolutionary or the freshest thing on the block to be an incredible experience. With a memorable cast of characters, a well-told, briskly paced story, stunning and vibrant visuals, and a beautiful and extremely varied world as its setting, Dragon Quest XI serves as yet another excellent instalment in this amazingly consistent franchise.
Hardcore Gamer: 4/5
If you’re a fan of Dragon Quest VIII, you’ll find a lot to love about Dragon Quest XI. Its character-driven plot and skill system recall the series’ breakout PlayStation 2 installment, though Dragon Quest XI’s lively world and expressive monsters lend it a unique feeling and flavor. Some fans might feel let-down about Dragon Quest XI’s lack of job system or other options that let you fine-tune every aspect of your party (what I wouldn’t give to see Dragon Quest V’s monster-friending system make a return), but if you’re in the market for a turn-based RPG that feels nostalgic but doesn’t force you to deal with old genre mechanics, you won’t find a better quest.
9/10 PlayStation Lifestyle:
I have my issues with Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age. It’s a bit clunky when it tries to pretend it’s cool like other video games. I wish I had vocations instead of skill points to play with, and it would be nice if I could get from point A to B a bit faster, or have more to do along the way. But at the same time, I found myself engrossed in the usual grind I’ve come to love over the years, the silly and fantastical creatures from my favorite artist, and the storytelling that met and even rattled my expectations. There’s even a neat little crafting system I didn’t have room to mention, secrets to find, and of course hours and hours of post-game content. If you want to go on an adventure, and I mean a real adventure that tugs on your heartstrings, makes you smile, and yells puns at you constantly, do not sleep on Dragon Quest XI.
8.25/10 Game Informer:
A lot of my complaints are about the core conceits. The graphics and scope, while updated, are grafted onto a frail and aging skeleton. The huge map that amounts to hallways, the NPCs with endlessly frivolous dialogue, and the incessant load screens all point to an update — in hardware and software — rather than an evolution.
Dragon Quest 11 is a beautiful example of what a JRPG can be after 30 years of lovingly guided evolution. Its success is irrevocably tethered to those decades of development, though, and that means you probably already know if this is a game for you. If you’re not already one of the faithful, Dragon Quest 11 is unlikely to make you a convert.
No Rating WayPoint:
I’m not meaning to be a downer about this game, I’m really not, but I felt that people like me, who have enjoyed lots of RPGs over the years but are not dedicated Dragon Quest superfans, are not present in the
Dragon Quest XI equation. I felt like the game was actively trying to rob me of enjoyment, both in in the story and in the combat strategy, at every moment. It is a well-crafted, perfectly playable video game that certain has all the pieces of a Dragon Quest game. But in uniting the plodding story predictability of the film blockbuster and the complete adherence to intellectual property of the video game blockbuster, it has filed off any of the edges that might make it interesting as something beyond its existence as a new Dragon Quest game.
