The big main mechanic of the game is "cloud stepping" where you can jump again in mid-air after attacking an enemy or object. The problem is that they tried to bog the jump mechanic down with so many other functions that the game often has trouble figuring out what exactly you want to do.
Not only do you have the double-jump after an attack, you can also jump and press jump again to glide, jump and press a button to do a downward attack, jump and press a button to launch a grappling hook and you have wall claws to cling to walls. Because so much is tied to jumping, I often found myself gliding when I didn't want to, clinging to walls at the worst moments and missing critical grapples. Worst of all, there's often a big of lag between your aerial attacks and your ability to jump again, meaning that you've often fallen a fair distance from your target before you get that second jump off.
Other than that, the enemy designs are meh, mostly just copy pasted from other games, the platforming portions are meh, neither too hard nor really interesting, and as others have said, the "skill tree" is utterly pointless.
TLDR: This would be a fine game to pick up for $5 or less. It's not worth the full $20.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.3Sep 11, 2018Monster Hunter World was fun, but for a lot of us veteran hunters, it was just too easy. While Generations Ultimate is easier than previousMonster Hunter World was fun, but for a lot of us veteran hunters, it was just too easy. While Generations Ultimate is easier than previous iterations, it feels more visceral and satisfying than World did. The grind is there, the collecting efforts are there, and the monsters are much more devastating without proper preparation. For any vet, you'll be happy with this, particularly with the ability to finally play a real Monster Hunter game on the big screen.… Expand

There are bugs, glitches, and the neighbor gets caught on objects constantly. Controlling your own character is mediocre, the musical score is bare minimum, and overall the game feels like a really early test build for something else. If you're looking for this kind of gameplay, pick up Prey. That did the same thing (stealth horror where you choose the solution) but much much much more effectively.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.6Jul 15, 2018Unfortunately, the biggest flaw with this game is the fact that you're not playing 1 overaching story with 8 contributing paths, but 8Unfortunately, the biggest flaw with this game is the fact that you're not playing 1 overaching story with 8 contributing paths, but 8 parallel paths that really don't have much to do with each other and literally no interaction between the characters. You're not playing with a party of adventurers so much as a group of strangers silently hanging out together. In a game that gets half of its merit from story alone, this is a bit of a failure. The characters by themselves are fairly interesting with decent stories to them, but that just makes the lack of connection all the more frustrating.
However, If you're looking for old school JRPG, that's what you're getting. But beware, there have been A LOT of "quality of life" upgrades RPGs have gained over the years that this game deliberately leaves out, to be more like the older games. Fights are very repetitive, menus are needlessly complex, the story is slow, and you're going to have to grind A LOT. If you're looking for all of that, which is what us older folks knew growing up, you'll be pleased. If you're a youngin' whipper snapper, this probably isn't the game for you. As an adult that grew up on these games with relatively little free time now, I'm torn. I want to like this, but I don't want to devote my life to it and the failing of the story to unite these individually interesting characters really ruins the momentum I had to play it. Buy at your own risk.… Expand

It's extremely light on content, so it's kinda tough to actually recommend picking it up, but it's mildly entertaining if you don't want to think much. it's equal parts weird, silly and simple. Worth maybe $5 to waste an empty afternoon on.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.3Jun 5, 2018Be wary, this is a game for hardcore RPG gamers only. The user interface is absolutely one of the least intuitive interfaces I have everBe wary, this is a game for hardcore RPG gamers only. The user interface is absolutely one of the least intuitive interfaces I have ever interacted with and it will definitely drive most folks away before they even start the first quest. If you're the kind of person that likes to go to bed reading D&D manuals, then you might do okay with it. Anyone else is going to feel their eyeballs fall out at the wall of text presented to them. Unfortunately, the gameplay itself is just as repetitive and, while fairly entertaining, you basically end up repeating the same 4 steps over and over again.
The game is also incredibly punishing. While not a problem in and of itself as challenge is a good thing that most games lack, you will find yourself restarting a lot in the early game, especially as you're getting used to the flow of the game. If you're not a fan of that, you'll also want to avoid this game.
Finally, also be aware that this game pulls the "Ooops, the enemy barely survived with 1 health" thing A LOT. If you're like me and find this an incredibly annoying trick to add "challenge" to fights, then you'll also want to avoid this. It is likely to happen at least once in every fight.… Expand

It's a slightly entertaining "game" to watch, but that's all that you do. The game plays itself, there's auto-set, auto-select and auto-battle buttons. The only two effects the player really has on the game are choosing what order you want to go on the quests in the game (just the order, not actually doing anything on them), and choosing whether or not to pay money to make the game go faster.
Since it's a free download, you might as well check it out, but I don't know why anyone would ever spend money on this. There's literally nothing to do here.… Expand

It's too limited in scope to be worth the full $20, but if you have some friends to play local co-op with, you'll get $10 of fun out of it. It's also very difficult to play in handheld mode, so if you're the kind of person, like me, that mostly uses the Switch as a portable, this game won't be very good for you.… Expand

There's a littleThis is Minecraft with a little bit of direction. There really isn't much to make this a Dragon Quest game besides the style. There's a little bit of direction because the other characters give you quests, but you can do them or ignore them, it really doesn't matter too much. Unfortunately, unlike Minecraft, you lack the ability to look straight up or straight down or go into first person mode, so it's Minecraft that is distinctly harder to navigate and control. Overall a fine game, but there's nothing new here and no reason to call it Dragon Quest.… Expand

It's funny, has a good art style, nice music and pleasant little puzzles. Unfortunately, there really isn't all that much going on in the game beyond that and by the end I was mostly just rushing through the game to finish it, and I doubt I'll even do that. The excitement just kinda drops off once you've found all of the items and you start seeing the same puzzles repeated with only slight variation. In the end, this game is not really worth the $30 asking price, but if you can grab it for $15 or less, you'll be okay.… Expand
