Dragon Quest Heroes 2 feels like a step forward in some ways, but a step back in others. The new additions to combat are nice, but the attempts to bring more RPG elements to the story missions don't always work out for the best – at worst, they wind up transforming an enjoyable action game into a boring slog. At least it shows that Omega Force is willing to try new things with their long-established formula. Let's hope that their experiments go a little better next time.

Dragon Quest continues to be the most successful partner for Dynasty Warriors, but the pace of improvement remains painfully slow.

Dragon Quest Heroes II is a step backwards from the first Heroes, but represents a solid Dynasty Warriors-style action game. It gets repetitive, but taking on a massive army single-handedly is fun

Dragon Quest Heroes 2 never finds it stride — but at least it has warfans

Omega Force's thoughtful mix of familiar Dragon Quest Heroes designs and new features not only makes this sequel engrossing, but it also shows this side series' potential for future installments. It makes for a satisfying hack-and-slasher that is not only a great Warriors spinoff, but also an effective gateway to the main Dragon Quest series.

It is hurt by its messy story battles and uneven difficulty, but the addition of online play is welcomed. Whether you've been a Dragon Quest fan since it was still called Dragon Warrior or have never touched one in your life, Dragon Quest Heroes II is an action-RPG that is welcoming to both hardcore fans and newcomers alike.

I was expecting some of the on-paper enhancements to impact me more, but Dragon Quest Heroes II isn't a stark improvement. It is better though, so if you wanted to get in on the first quest and missed out, you may as well skip it and jump in here -- you won't be missing a whole lot.

Feels too similar to the original Dragon Quest Heroes for PS4, but it is still a great combination of "musou" mechanics with rpg elements, and the great monster design from the series.
