All and all, this is a stellar remake to Yuji Horii’s favorite entry in the Dragon Quest series.

More Enix then Square-Enix

Reviewed By: Burnt Lasagna on 21 Nov 2016

This patch feels like a solid translation made by Enix before they merged with Square. It reads like an uncensored Dragon Warrior VII with less translation mistakes (or none, I’m not sure) and a hint of influence from modern Dragon Quest localizations.

Character accents/localization liberties are not as thick/prevalent in this PS2 patch, especially when compared to the official DS version. For a comparison, here is the same line in both the DS and PS2 version (NOTE: the person talking is a ghost king).

Official DS Version: “Ooooooh! Yooo are ze first people tooo have ze courage tooo come zis far!”

PS2 Fan Patch: “Oh, such brave souls! This is the first time anyone has made it this far.”

I’ll let you decide which is better.

With the above being said, I think DQ Translations’s PS2 work is 100% enjoyable. Dialogue sounds natural and the hacking job is clean. Any small issues I had with the script are nulled by the improvements the PS2 version provides.

Play this patch if you want the PS2 remake with a script that reads like a mix of old and new Dragon Quest translation styles. Play the official DS translation if you want a portable version with a Buffalo & Ranch – Tongue on Fire script (which is fun too).

NOTE: There are two versions of this patch, one for Dragon Warrior name/spells and the other for Dragon Quest name/spells.
