Author’s Take

The first “Dragon Quest Builders” proved a surprisingly fun mashup, blending the questing and exploration of the “Dragon Quest” series with the creation and crafting mechanics of “Minecraft.” It wasn’t without its flaws though, so hopefully Square Enix will show how the sequel has improved the formula in the near future.
