Summary

One of a kind RPG

The Good

Dragon Warrior was a leader of its kind. The turn based battle was something that had people wanting more. The classic graphics and sound made the gameplay interesting while fighting the endless battles to strengthen your character.

The Bad

If you think about the story, it seems pretty short. Find the princess in the cave thats right next to the castle, then fight the Dragonlord in the castle you can see across from your own, but it takes you forever to get your level up.

The Bottom Line

Dragon Warrior is definitely a game to play if you are a true RPG player. It has classic RPG roots. Turn based battles, weapon buying, item buying, its a very classic game. Very long but fun. I could never shake the game away, it calls to you while your not playing.
