Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 is the latest entry in the successful Dragon Quest series. The franchise is popular for its accessible and intuitive battle systems, and the addicting nature of collecting the best monsters and coming up with the best fighting strategy. This game is no exception. Even though battles are depicted with very little visual stimuli, the strategy of the battle itself is what's important, and players will easily find themselves continuously tweaking their lineup of monsters and attacks. The underlying storyline sometimes falls by the wayside, but is intriguing enough to keep players motivated until the end.
