Not Perfect, But Innovative DW Hack

Reviewed By: Klaviaturist on 16 Mar 2011

This is a fairly good hack of Dragon Warrior 1 for the NES. Everything is changed, including music, graphics, maps, story, etc. At first glance I was really looking forward to playing this. The problem is that the level grinding gets in the way of the storyline and slows everything to a screeching stop at times. But thus was the first Dragon Warrior game as well.

Although the game has a different storyline and the whole game has been overhauled in general, there are still many similarities to events that happen in DW. For instance, in DW there is a town guarded by a Golem that can only be defeated with the fairy flute (I think that’s the name). In Dragoon X Omega there is a town with a crazed robot on the barrier that can only be defeated with a certain item (drawing a blank on the item). There were many other similarities as well.

The game itself is rather good but it suffers from what DW suffered from and that is a ridiculous amount of level grinding. It actually got boring after a while and, although I made it near the end of the game, I lost interest in beating it because of the grinding. Doesn’t mean it’s not worth playing because it is probably one of the better hacks out there. Just means you should get prepared for a lot of tedium.

Lastly, this is apparently a remake of another DW hack simply entitled Dragoon X. There was also a great sequel that’s a hack of FF1 that is well worth your time.
