Well, I just received, and finished playing, my Dragon Quest VIII demo and I'm impressed. It is truly a beautiful game to look at and behold. Thankfully, it also plays as well as it looks, evoking RPG battle systems of old and new and they come together nicely. The new voice overs are very well done, as are the new menus. The lip-synching isn't perfetc, but it IS done very well. Now I can't wait for November for the full release! Yay!
