Dragon Quest I+II

Super Nintendo

Game Description:

Yup, it’s Dragon Warrior and Dragon Warrior II with some improved graphics and sound. That’s all, really. If it’s anything like the (already in english) Gameboy Color game, DW2 has been tweaked a little to not make it so unbearably slow and boring late into the game. Still, Dragon Warrior is cool, and don’t forget it. Bitch.

Translation Description:

Included in the archive is a DW patch and a DQ patch. The DW patch changes the names to adhere to the old Dragon Warrior NES games, while the names in the DQ patch are closer to the original Japanese (NOT the more recent Dragon Quest English releases, as this patch pre-dates those).

There’s (reportedly) some untranslated text in Dragon Warrior 1. If you rescue the princess and don’t bring her to the king, when you defeat the last boss and go back to the king, there will be different ending dialogue that was left untranslated.

An addendum patch (link) can be applied over the English translation to fix the broken title screen in the DQ1 part of the game.

User Review Information

Great DQ 1 but buggy DQ 2 ruins it.

Reviewed By: Strat on 27 Oct 2013

The updated graphics make for a fun ride in DQ1+2.

However, there is a major bug in DQ2 that prevented me from finishing the game. When the prince becomes ill, the names are first of all inverted in all conversations. For example, a NPC will say “It’s a shame that prince Linda fell ill” and the like. Though it’s a minor bug, it was a sign of things to come.

Once you cure the prince with the leaf, the text overlaps onto itself and goes in a cycle endlessly. There is no way to get out of this pattern and because of this, I had no choice but to quit playing.

I would therefore recommend playing DQ1 on this ROM, but to not waste your time with DQ2 as you won’t be able to get beyond this point.
