Dragon Quest Builders 2 is the perfect sequel. The kind that improves on every aspect of the original, adding more meaningful content to the mix, quality of life fixes and throwing some interesting new aspects at players, whilst maintaining that core that made the first game so enjoyable in the first place.

  • Looks and sounds great, with an excellent translation
  • An excellent blend of focused building and free-form creation
  • Improved in almost every conceivable way over the original
  • Switch version appears to be pushing the machine extremely hard
5 / 5
Version tested
