If you didn't know already, the game is HARD. I had to replay the first boss battle 5 or 6 times before beating it. I've spent too many hours power-levelling in that game. >_>

Took me twice to beat that guy. I did some preleveling, but I was searching for some chests. Bosses definitely don't joke around. I'm lvl 7 now and got some Seeds which I used on the main dude. Also my dude knows Heal and two other spells.




Great game, one of my faves. It may seem sad, but according to my file I clocked in at least 300 hours of gametime (mostly b/c I let the game go on as I went out and sleep, but I still played at least 100 hours of real gaming).

The game is good for what it does. It has a simple, traditional battle system, but the enemies don't forgive. If you don't heal when you can and don't pay attention to what you are doing, you could end up having at least one or all your party members dead.

If you end up losing to a boss or a group of enemies, you either 1) made foolish mistakes when fighting monsters, 2) did not heal or rest when you should or 3) you did not level up enough before entering the battle. The charms of the game though are the little dialogues between the characters and such. The graphics, the little stories and the music all lend to its charm.

I am a Pakistani.....my name is Dan....how hard is that? (Don't ask about the 101...apparantely there are more of me out there....)

I just searched and DQ IX has no random battles! Thank God! Random battles are such a pain.

^^ Agreed, as much as I loved FFX, random battles were pretty annoying.



its a really good game i dont see why everyone hates it so much , its just simple and fun
and i like the soundtrack , its calming and orchestral, the characters are all funny-ish and light hearted.
its one of my favourite games.

That's good, random battles are outdated and archaic, it's a good thing that was taken out.

October is a long time away, prices on Persona 3 and 4 may go up by that time, but good luck with DQVIII, I have yet to hear anything good about it.

I'm expecting them to go down if anything. At least P4 will. As long as I can buy them both for under $50 I'm good.

Also, I'm getting Re: CoM, leo-j :) Probably for Christmas though. I'm gonna get a bunch of other PS2 games too.

You can't buy both of them for under $50......



@outlaw

Sure I can. I saw P4 for $20 on Ebay (Buy it Now, no bids) and Amazon has P3 FES for around $20.
