The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

E What do these ratings mean?

Ok, I've waited a long time before buying this game, but now that I have it, I regret paying €20 (platinum) for it. The game begans relaxed, 2 heroes a green goblin pretending to be a king and his daughter, a horse, since they are under a spell and looking for a cure, this is totally acceptable. I also noticed during the first half hour that this game has some real nice cell shaded graphics, but stupid/irritating classic music... Going on I received a mission : finding a glass sphere in a cave. Went to the cave immediatly, encountered some foes on the way, killed 'em,  entered the cave, encountered 4 other foes, boom hero 1 dead, and had nothing to retrieve him :s. Went on a bit further, another foe, hero n°2 : Dead... OK, i spend A HALF HOUR grinding, some enemy's at random, to increase my level and I bought some better equipment, and some medical herbs for healing. Went to the cave, made it to the end, encountered a boss, killing my heroes in 2 strikes :sThat was the last minut i spend playing this game...

Dragon Quest... better name would have been grindquest... Well since I'm not a Japanese spending all my time grinding and grinding I gave up this game... Too bad indeed, I was really looking for the storyline since it got tons of good comments...

Hope I can warn some other people before buying this game, that it contains lots and lots of grinding, before getting any further....
