Satisfying questing, fun NPC interactions, and the joy of building combine to make Dragon Quest Builders 2 a delightful sandbox adventure.
Dragon Quest Builders 2 feels like a cross between Animal Crossing, Minecraft and Breath of the Wild but is unique. With its relaxed pace and overall good plot and satisfying gameplay, it’s an enjoyable game and solid RPG that improves upon its predecessor like a sequel should. The dialogue is funny and charming, the world is interesting and fun to explore.
Overall, Dragon Quest Builders 2 is a good game but not a great one.
We are facing a complete, long adventure, with infinite possibilities; a tribute to Dragon Quest and his legacy. It is a video game that, as a spin-off, accomplishes what has rarely been achieved: overcoming some major deliveries. And this is achieved with care, with love for the brand, and with well-implemented mechanics.

Dragon Quest: Builders 2 is one of the best voxel building based games you can try. This game blends long stories of Dragon Quest series with Minecraft-like building gameplay quite well and offers a very unique experience. There are improvements in most aspects of gameplay and graphics compared to the first Dragon Quest Builders. There are also some flaws like a shallow combat system and some control issues, but they are not very troublesome. If you like building based games like Minecraft or wished for a Minecraft-like game with a story, or even you're just a Dragon Quest fan, then this game is for you.

Dragon Quest Builders 2 fixes many gripes of the first game while maintaining and enhancing building many large and small projects.

In a perfect world, [the Nintendo Switch] release would have been tuned for a more stable frame rate and power consumption. Hopefully the frame rate can be addressed in future patches because Dragon Quest Builders 2 on Switch is the perfect game for the system but in a not so perfect port.
It’s a game that fans of the first game won’t be disappointed by, and the perfect way for newcomers to get in on what looks to be a series on the rise.
Dragon Quest Builders 2 is simply an excellent companion for rainy summer days.

Dragon Quest Builders 2 is a fantastic sequel that expands on the original in almost every imaginable way
Dragon Quest Builders 2 improves upon the original title in a variety of ways, making for a superior sequel for the building based spin-off series.
The charming mix of Minecraft and Dragon Quest works even better the second time round, with a smart sequel that address the flaws of the original while adding plenty of new features of its own.
Dragon Quest Builders 2 is an admirable RPG and an admirable building game that seems to have gotten the best bits of both of its parent genres.
The Minecraft and Dragon Quest mash-up gets refined for the sequel, with a few other outside influences helping make it a laid-back joy.
All the joy and satisfaction of the original, now with upgraded toys, a bigger world and a dog you can pet
Dragon Quest Builders 2 is a quintessential example of a great sequel. It takes everything that's fun about the first game and adds more of the good stuff while removing the mechanics that didn't work the first time around. It's slow to really get started, but once it starts rolling, you never want to stop digging, building, and fighting. If you're curious about the Dragon Quest Builders series on any level, Dragon Quest Builders 2 is a good jumping-on point.
It's easy for me to say Dragon Quest Builders 2 is a good game because it'd be a lie for me to say otherwise. The groundwork laid by the first title is still sound, but it just didn't grab me the same way its predecessor did. That doesn't mean I'm going to stop playing anytime soon -- I still have my home island to complete -- but it does mean it's not going to get my undivided attention for weeks-on-end like the first game did.
Dragon Quest Builders 2 improves upon the original in almost every way, but it doesn’t innovate.
Builders 2 finds the perfect balance between construction games such as Minecraft and the classic RPG saga. This sequel adds new abilities such as flying, diving and an online multiplayer mode for four players.

It was hard for me to imagine a way to expand on a game that was already so god but Dragon Quest Builders 2 has managed to do just that. A bigger story, new things to build, multi-player and more make this an absolutely jam-packed experience. Building game enthusiasts will love the blend of crafting and survival management, while Dragon Quest fans are sure to love the unique spin on the long-running JRPG franchise, and if you're a fan of both? Well, Dragon Quest Builders 2 is the must have game of 2019.
