  • Dragon Quest Builders 2
    Verified BuyerReviewed by JBM291 - September 12, 2019

    As someone who played the first game on Switch, this game surprised me by how much it has improved on the original. Swimming, gliding, and myriad other improvements have been added. I've played for hours and have only just completed the first island. The boss I fought was a marked improvement on bosses from the original (much less annoying), and the combat is actually not terrible. I never hated the original’s combat, since it felt more natural than its inspiration, Minecraft, and with a persistent NPC partner, this time around it feels balanced. The only reason I have docked it a star is that it has long loading times and frame rate issues, but I think the jump to portable is worth those sacrifices.

  • Major Improvement
    Reviewed by Budd - July 26, 2019

    I loved the first game -- and anything Dragon Warrior/Quest -- and this game is far better. The graphics are better, you don't lose everything every chapter, etc, and the removal of your tools breaking down after use is just a godsend. Having a constant companion along for the ride is also a great addition, even if it does foreshadow an obvious "twist" in the story. Some of the conversations do get annoying with the typical Dragon Quest 'accents' and silliness, but overall, it's just a great game and a great addition to the Dragon Quest series -- Builder or otherwise!

  • Everything from the first x 100!!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Destynn - July 19, 2019

    This game is packed! The first game was fantastic, except everyone hated losing their city. No worries in number 2, they heard what was good and bad and totally made this sequel. There's soooo much to do, build, story, and even multiplayer. Traveling, storing and building is better and AI of characters helps with mundane tasks making it less burdensome which allows me to explore, build or fight more. Great game, must have in a Nintendo switch collection, this is coming from a person that didn't think he'd like Minecraft mechanics and here I am, playing the sequel!

  • Fun and addictive but tedious
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Meghan - September 3, 2019

    much better than the first game, but many of the characters can be annoying, combat is almost optional but at some points in the game it's like the game is forcing you to halt your progress or is artificially lengthening the play time with tedious tasks and quests, it also makes you reset what materials and recipes you have and can make whenever you go to a new island for no particular reason, basically making you start over for that island, there is even a point where your hammer and all of the tools you've acquired are taken away for a period of time, dragging out the play time even more, it really is a fun game when you're set free to make whatever you want, but story mode is still very tedious, tiring, and frustrating

  • Dragon Quest Builders 2 is better than ever!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by TheNintendoPowerCouple - July 16, 2019

    First off, before I begin the review, I just want to let everyone know that if you own a Nintendo Switch and are curious about this game, there is a free demo on the Nintendo eShop you can download AND on the main menu of the main game there is an option to "Continue from Demo" to bring your progress over. I absolutely loved the original Dragon Quest Builders. I finished it 100% and loved every chapter. However, starting Dragon Quest Builders 2, you immediately see just how many quality-of-life changes they made to the gameplay that makes it a much better experience! To quickly sum the new things up: - There is now a stamina meter for your character to run. - You can play online with friends (must have Nintendo Switch online membership and reach a certain point in the single player campaign for this feature to unlock). - Your weapons/tools are no longer breakable. - You have a companion that travels with you helping you defeat enemies and pick up items. - Your tools/weapons are assigned to different buttons now. - There is a robust photo editor where you can take pictures and post them on the DQB2 message boards (think Super Mario Odyssey photo editor). - You can upload your creations as well as visit other people's islands to see their creations through the DQB2 message board. - Your hunger meter is now a percentage (0-100% as opposed to five slices of bread) - Defeating enemies still give you items but it also gives you experience you use to level up you and your companion. - There is DLC on the way that adds even more items and quests for you to enjoy. - Physical version has stackable slime DLC code inside AND a reversible cover that matches the artstyle of the first one! (see photo) Essentially, if you enjoyed Dragon Quest Builders, you will LOVE Dragon Quest Builders 2! It plays more like an RPG than the first one and you'll find yourself constantly building new structures! The story keeps you playing and the quests are fun as they reward you with new items to craft. The writing is also FANTASTIC...the characters are hilarious and the dialogue is cheeky! I hope this review helped you out. I am still currently playing through this (have been for about 10 hours now) and have been addicted every second. If you are on the fence, again try the eShop demo...you may be surprised at how much you enjoy it! :)
