How Do Dragon Quest's Famitsu Scores Stack Up?

Illustration for article titled How Do Dragon Quest's Famitsu Scores Stack Up?

Japanese game magazine Famitsu gave new DS title Dragon Quest IX a perfect score — the tenth game to get such a score. But how does it stack up to the others?

Since Famitsu has been doing its 40 out of 40 reviews, the DQ titles have been rated:

Dragon Quest II 38/40
Dragon Quest III 38/40
Dragon Quest IV 38/40
Dragon Quest V 36/40
Dragon Quest VI 34/40
Dragon Quest VII 38/40
Dragon Quest VIII 39/40
Dragon Quest IX 40/40

So by this number logic, Famitsu thinks the newest Dragon Quest IX is the best one ever made — better than all the others. It's the pinnacle. Aren't reviews with numbers just great?

DQ VII was awful.

Seriously, did any of you guy play that?

The fake 3D *rotate the screen* top view

The "would have been pretty 10 years ago" CG cut scenes.

The island after island no-end-in-sight grind.

DQ VIII was quite lovely though :)

Looking forward to picking up DQ IX soon ;)
