Dragon Quest Heroes 2 Review

Dragon Quest Heroes 2

I am not going to give you the understanding of the genre musou because I am not, but I can say that I am attracted enormously to the idea, simple but effective, of handing shots to right and sinister hordes of enemies whose numerical superiority does not prevent my character gives them the somanta of his life. From the outside it may seem ridiculous, but who has not enjoyed those typical scenes of exaggerated fight in the classics of cinema in which an unbeatable hero is able to defeat hundreds of rivals with all the ease of the world? Because in such a situation we do not care so much about realism, but about dynamism, fun. We do not think how surreal the situation is, But how beautiful is the choreography and how many strokes can be given before breaking a perfect combo. And that’s why the other day, when I left Koch Media’s offices where I had tried Dragon Quest Heroes 2, I felt like a little girl who had just gotten out of an amusement park for the first time.

The title comes at a time when musou mechanics are increasingly polished. In addition Omega Force, who count on countless outstanding works under this formula, such as the Dinasty Warriors franchise or the glorious AOT: Wings of Freedom. The company does not disguise at any moment that Dragon Quest Heroes 2 is a musou with all the law, but with such a dynamism in its mechanics that the experience of playing it is a point and apart.

The story could not be simpler, since it is not what most concerns us about the game. Lázaro and Teresa live in a utopian world in which wars are things of the past and nobody conceives that the Seven Realms that coexist together will break that perfect harmony. But Dúnez, the kingdom from which our protagonists come, attacks for no apparent reason the neighboring kingdom, Botavara, and our protagonists are forced to help defend the residents of the citadel. They end up discovering that it is Prince Caesar, his childhood friend, who is behind this attack. Confused but ready to know the truth, they decide to accompany Desdemona, a brave warrior who will become the first of all the comrades who will join our group.

As in the first title not only presents us with original characters but also appeals to some coming from the classic saga and that the most veteran fans will soon recognize. And we, embodying the unstoppable Lárazo or the reflective Teresa, will be in charge of knowing all this cast of characters so varied that later will help us in our battles. And it is here that we discover that each of these heroes has very well defined abilities and unique characteristics that we can enhance over time and complement with those of his teammates to form the unbeatable team of the Seven Kingdoms. And this is not at all difficult to understand

We landed on a purely intuitive title that barely leaves you time to think. Dragon Quest Heroes 2 is fast. It is action, it is movement and here nobody is going to wait their turn to attack. If one of our heroes falls defeated we can resurrect him thanks to the cure and, if not, we will opt for the management of another of our characters. And it is that yes, we can change of hero in real time in the heat of the battle to increase the level of tension to complement our attacks and to experience the variety of styles of fight that Dragon Quest Heroes 2 offers us. And once our character is on top of enthusiasm, the game will allow us to enter a Tension Mode in which, for a brief period of time,

In addition to that, Dragon Quest Heroes 2 includes a host of features that make it a much better game, such as personalization of the amount of characters we have in our possession. The game gives us the option to choose not only the accessories but also the magic, fighting style and weapons of each of our heroes. Something very important when it comes to level up and choose the line that will take our character in what to battle is concerned, as it will also increase the affinity with the weapons that it carries. This does not prevent them, as well as the abilities of the hero, are limited to a specific vocation that yes, we can change it if we want, but at the time of choosing it will give us a number of limitations.

Another point to emphasize is the existence of Telepiedras that we are in the wide open world of Dragon Quest Heroes 2. When we leave the citadels in which we keep the game, we buy improvements and we know civilians, we are faced with a vast map full of enemies, threats and also a Telepiedras that help us to travel the Seven Kingdoms with greater ease. The title presents a very extensive world and invites us to travel in its integrity, sometimes even jumping from one place to another, and saves us the tedious journey thanks to the spell of telerregreso. This will take us to the place we want, as long as we have come in contact with the Telepiedra of that area. But exploration is essential not only to discover all that these Seven Kingdoms have to offer but also to fight the enemies we meet along the way and gain experience and something else: the monster medals. While these medals are for single use, their effects vary depending on the collection; While the medals of the smaller enemies facilitate us for example the attack, those of more imposing monsters will allow us to invoke that adversary in the battle field, to control it in real time and to make attacks with him during a limited time.

These medals are kept in a case that carries our hero with him and whose capacity is not infinite, so we will have to be attentive.

All the above narrated reach its culmination thanks to an outstanding visual section, bright colors and vibrant lighting. The game works extremely well on a basic PlayStation 4, delivering a fantastic result even at times when the screen is packed with characters and attacks. The scenarios may not be the most elaborate in the world despite being very remarkable, but that is not an impediment to enjoy some very remarkable graphics within the genre. The high frame rate of Dragon Quest Heroes 2 is focused, above all, to dynamize the battles and make them more fluid, improving their experience. Because that’s what the game really looks for: That you enjoy each one of the battles that you find in your way. These can be maximized thanks to the collaborative mode, in which you can use the connection to contact your friends and take them to a battle in which they help you to destroy all the enemies that you find in your path.

Dragon Quest Heroes 2 crowns itself as well as an outstanding musou that promises tireless hours of fun thanks to its mechanics when doing what it is best: to offer fights full of tension. It is a game that does not invite thinking, but acting ; That intends that you live in your pores the emotion of the confrontation with hordes and hordes of enemies. Do not fear if you lose count of how many monsters surround you, but pray that they come out more when you have finished with all. In short, Dragon Quest Heroes 2 wants you to disconnect, to live adventures and, above all, to enjoy. And as far as I’m concerned, he’s fulfilled.
