    I honestly think I’m going to prefer 1 when it’s all said and done.
    I feel like much of the complexity added in this game takes away from the simplicity I enjoyed in the first one, like the combat being focused on a party instead of just you. It just looks like this game has too much stuff in it to muddle the balance of building-exploring-fighting that the first one nailed.
    Last but not least, the framerate looks ABYSMAL. The first one is a smooth 60 when docked with rare drops, it plays like a dream; why is this one so badly optimized? It looks virtually identical to the first one, not many graphical improvements!
    I don’t care about multiplayer. I don’t know… I’ll probably get it but I have a feeling the first one is more my style and it’s also actually optimized.

    Do the villagers repair your town back to the way you had it built if monsters attack? In the first game I was always annoyed at having to rebuild the walls after the sieges.

    You cite BotW at 2 hrs, but I got 3 minimum. So I’ll get 3 minimum from this one. Which isn’t great, but it’ll do.

    Great review, very professional! For someone just getting into the series do you recommend waiting to play this or just playing 1?

    good review, thanks! can you confirm that the performance issues you described here are unique to the switch version, or might they also be present in the ps4 version? i was leaning toward getting this for switch, too, but ps4 remains an option if there’s little difference in that regard.

    There are issues in the PS4 version also where having too many buildings causes the game to lag. This is personally the only negative I can detect and hopefully they are able to fix this. Otherwise, I really love this game! Can’t wait for the release!

    The first game was such a pleasure to play I’m really hyped for this one. Glad to hear it holds up.

    Fucking hell, I cannot wait for this.
    Thanks for the review, dude. Cleared up a lot of worries I’ve had.
    One of the only things that bug me is that we still don’t get a full character editor lol

    I just want to know why we have to wait 6 months for it

    Try turning on 1.25 speed. The video gets better. Thanks for the review.

    They didnt add a block mechanic to the combat? literally 0/10 that was the only flaw with the first game other than ceilings clipping into frame but thats another story

    Wish they just made it like a seamless open world or at least remove the chapters and let us go back to old islands with our stuff

    I loved Dragon Quest Builders! I can’t wait for this game to release in the U.S.

    I‘m going to buy it on Switch
    Like the first dragon quest builders

    I like the sound of infinite resources. The first one did that a bit with rooms that would encourage your villagers to make items but you would get a lot of waste items.

    FYI, the game has now had a release date set for July 12, 2019. So just over 5 months to go.

    Is the "free build" area available from the start? In the first game, you had to beat Chapter 1 before it unlocked.

    This game looks really awesome. The first one was already awesome and this one looks even better!

    Thanks for this great review! After the direct, I went and bought the first one and absolutely LOVING it. I am looking forward to the next instalment.

    How does the online co-op work? I’m struggling to understand. Are there servers? or do you have your own world but then there’s a multiplayer world? or do you just join one persons world? is it the ‘full’ experience in co-op still?

    Glad to have you do another review Jarrod! Hope there are more to come

    What I want to know is. Can you name rooms and name a room for your hero and NOT have others go in and sleep. Because it wasn’t working on the first for me.

  32. ShockerNOR

    Loved the first one, but yeah, the framerate on the Switch-version in the sequal tho :-/

    I did NOT like Dragon Quest Builders 1 and for many of the reasons which are no longer an issue in nr 2 judging from your review HOWEVER the frame rate issues as can be seen in your video make me NOT want to buy it. I am going to sit and wait to see if it gets fixed first.

    Can you play online multiplayer with a friend in a different location?

    Im dying for this game, and if I didnt have bills to pay, I’d consider the digital Japanese version. That comes out to like.. $80ish and that’s a lot to pay for a game I cant even read.

  36. Shadow Storm
    March 14, 2019 @ 7:14 am

    are you fluent in Japanese?

  37. John Magus

    I i can’t wait for this game to come out in the US and elsewhere.

    I like this review very much but really not a fan of reviews that visually show late or end game content, when I saw that armor and you riding the vehicle at the end I stopped… kind of take away some elements of surprise/freshness to new players.

    The way you talk about this makes it seem like the best building game to date! And yes, i did not like minecraft, but enjoy portal knights fairly well

    I had so much fun playing dragon quest builders 1 and with what I saw I think my gameplay experience will be double the effect.

    How were you able to understand the game (ie. What to do for quests and other things)

    wasn’t a fan of the first one. too much hand holding.

    Can you play local multiplayer on Switch on one screen? I haven’t been able to figure out if it has split or one screen play for 2 players. Thanks.

    March 14, 2019 @ 7:31 am

    really great review, I am so looking forward to this title! I still think I’m gonna get the Switch version because playing this game portable is a total plus

    Sweet! I just got this game and I’m having a lot of fun! I’ll probably be done around the time the second comes out so this is perfect ~

    Didn’t watch the whole thing but just like DQHB1 , does DQHB2 has a clean slate ? Because to me , that’s a turn off…

    Does it have a quest log? Felt lost at times without textual context that was easily accessible in the first game
