Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime review

  • Dripping with personality
  • Frantic multi-layered tank battles
  • Contagious sense of humor...
  • ... that might make you sick
  • Gameplay can get repetitive
  • Minimal stylus support

Rocket Slime isn't for everyone. The quirky and sometimes innocent sense of humor is omnipresent. Why, even after a heated and bitter battle that ends in his tank being utterly destroyed, Rocket's rival will usually pay him a sincere compliment before scampering off in defeat.

Give this "kiddie" game a chance, though, and you may be shocked at how much fun you have. The only things you have to lose are 15-20 hours... and perhaps the heart to kill the gallant little gloops the next time you see them in an "adult" Dragon Quest.

    I've beaten this game yesterday (at around 16 hours) and I actually enjoyed it, especially since I pay little to no concern over the bizarre dialogue. This is certainly an odd and enjoyable game, I'll give Square Enix that. I guess this is a warm-up for whenever I decide to play a true Dragon Quest game.
