Fortunately, Dragon Quest VI’s failings are few and far between. For the most part, this game was a blast to play. While you could call it "just another Dragon Quest game", it was the best looking of the lot when it was first released, boasting a significant upgrade to its visuals. There also was a long quest with a few memorable twists and turns, and there were plenty of different and interesting ways to customize your party between the half-dozen or so human characters and the couple dozen recruitable monsters. When push comes to shove, the only real question for a player is whether or not he or she personally enjoys the Dragon Quest style of gaming, with its simplistic combat system and frequent random encounters. If you don't like that sort of affair, there probably isn't anything here that will change your mind; but if you do, it's quite possible you'll find this game to be the pinnacle of the series.

Ce Dragon Quest VI ne déroge pas à la règle, il invite le joueur à vivre une aventure gigantesque où la frontière entre le rêve et la réalité se révèle finalement très mince. Difficile donc de savoir ce qui est réel, et c'est bien ce doute continuel qui fait la force du titre. Le joueur avance, en apprend de plus en plus sur chacun des deux univers parallèles jusqu'à se poser LA question : « Lequel de ces deux mondes est le vrai ? ».

Overall, I enjoyed this journey! It is a long adventure with cool characters, unique story ideas, and a cool battle system that is made more interesting with the addition of the class system. There is still some clunky menu and saving mechanics, but it does not ruin the experience! If you have not been won over by JRPGs up to this point, this game will not win you over, but if JRPGs are your thing, you are in for a grand adventure!

Dragon Quest VI n'est pas un mauvais RPG : ses combats sont solides et l'aventure, très variée, assure quelques situations extraordinaires d'originalité et de comique. Cependant, les choses étant même replacées dans leur contexte, il rivalise bien mal avec les références atemporelles que la console a vu naître (Chrono Trigger ou Final Fantasy VI, pour ne citer que les plus consensuelles). S'il demeure sympathique, la longueur de l'intrigue et son manque général de rythme pourraient être à l'origine de quelques indigestions chez celui qui découvre la série.
