This stands as one of the two best RPGs of NES. Interesting story line which plays out throughout the game, as you are a boy hearing tales of your father being killed in a fierce battle with a dragon atop of a volcano. Then one day of course you gather three of your friends (each can be modified with abilities and several other things) to go find out the truth for yourself. Along the way there are several adventures battling monsters, kings, dragons, yourselves and other things across a massive land full of secrets, towns, castles and towers. Another nice feature is that the game takes you back to the original world of Dragon Warrior, so there is a whole other game in itself within the game. This game is also available on GameBoy Color.
