    It's a solid game. Decent story. Some of the characters are bloody annoying but most of it is likable enough. I liked the battle system and the minigames/sidequests a lot.

    Expect a fair amount of grinding. It is very much a classic JRPG complete with boss battles that will kick the shit outa you if you do not spend a few hours grinding before hand. If you are fine with that, it is a pretty damn fun game.

    .

    If you're a fan of the DQ series or like dungeon grinders then the game is enjoyable. If you don't mind JRPGs or are looking to kill some time, there are MUCH worse things out there than DQ8.
