After a series of unexpected events, this intrepid adventurer learns he is the reincarnation of a legendary hero from a forgotten age. The young hero sets forth into an unknown world on a journey to unravel the mystery of his past… but the welcome he receives is far from warm. Upon revealing his identity to the King, the hero is branded as “The Darkspawn” and hunted by a relentless army. Fleeing from his pursuers, the hero assembles a band of endearing adventurers who believe he is actually The Luminary reborn. The hero and his newfound companions embark on a quest that will take them across continents and over vast oceans as they learn of an ominous threat facing the world.

I love this game, but it's pretty tacky for SE to not offer a discount on the purchase of S for owners of this. I bought this one pretty early to "vote with my wallet" for more Dragon Quest, but I won't be getting S until that one drops significantly.

NOTE: This version of Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age is no longer available on steam. Please buy the definitive version as it is the most updated version of the game on steam.
Hello friends,
Today i will review the game Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age. As above stated, this is the original version which is no longer available, and the definitive version is now only available on steam.The game features everything the other parts of the series have, a main story quest, side quests galore, and mini medals. The game has the same formula as previous entries into the series, and does not have nothing new really. I do think since it follows previous games it follows the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". This does not make the game bad, but older players may get bored of playing the same formula in the game. Depending on what you put into the game, it can be fun if you can get into it. It is not a short game, and it took me personally 140 hours to play it fully. Anyways, here is my pros and cons list:
PROS:
- Uses same formula as previous dragon quest games. Players of previous games will recognize the story structure.
- A great turn based combat JRPG.
- Many side quests to do.
- Lots of places to explore.
- A great musical score with some remixes of old music from older games.
- Finding mini medals all around the world.
CONS:
- The story is same as previous entries in the series. It might be boring for people who played previous games in the series.
- The length is very long to beat the game and takes much time to fully appreciate the story and side quests. This is negative because many people will not like how long the game takes.
- The way the newer version was released is a big negative point. First, they delisted this version and did not give much discount to owners of this version for newer version.
Recommeneded, but since this version is not available anymore, please purchase this version as it has many improvements and other things in it.

As if a JRPG from the SNES era was brought to life for the modern era. Get cozy, and just enjoy a classic experience.

It's a really good Dragon Quest game, so if you're looking for a very traditional JRPG you'll have alot of fun with it. Extremely comfy visuals and soundtrack and whilst the voice acting initially felt a bit rocky it grew on me throughout the game.

I played Dragon Quest 8 as a child via Blockbuster rental and when I saw this game pop up on my recommended, I felt the need to play it and boy I fell in love. I probably will end up being the Definitive Edition after getting 100% on this game, I would gladly buy it twice.
