I unfortunately have to assume responsibility for that review *shudder*. I think it was the first review I did for CG. Looking over it, there's a few well-written paragraphs, but, man, I can be a slow and ponderous windbag when I set my mind to it.

I actually remember not only the old colors/designs-I remember that review and remember thinking you were way off base with it. I wrote a competing review for the now defunct Gamepen around the same time. Shit, nostalgia. Wow. I keep telling myself to go back and play DW7 again, but I don't know if I ever will.

Yep it's pretty much an eyesore.  Is there a way to access other old reviews?  I tried a couple and all I got is the dunce cap/dumbass combo.

You can google-search the site or wait about 3 weeks until I'm between semesters and can just convert them into the current DB. smile

I was hoping that somehow, this old page had ripped a hole in teh space time continuum...i clicked on the Gonegold link hoping that I'd somehow find GG still in tact....All i got was a kid (who I don't think was Rich LaPorte) sitting on a chair wearing a dunce cap.  I think it took me to the 1950s instead...

Yes, it should've been much lower! biggrin

The only Dragon Warrior title (that came out in the US, anyway), that I never finished. Terrible game that went absolutely nowhere, IMHO.

But man, look at that 'classic' site. Ah, how I remember doing everything via pure HTML code...

I agree with Destructor. If I was doing it now, I would score it lower. It's one of those games, similar to Wind Waker, where there's no payoff. The more time you sink in it, the less rewarding it gets.

Dragon Warrior 7 rocks your house and the house of your grandmother.

You want a game that gets less rewarding as time goes on?  Look at fucking Morrowind.

That must have been added in a mod because I don't remember that part of the game.

Plus the hole in the middle of the disc is so... small...
