It is definitely not your regular in-depth RPG with numerous side-quests and 50 hours or more of gameplay. No, this game takes a little bit more casual approach to the RPG series. You may be saying to yourself that casual and RPG genres don't mix, but I would beg to differ. While Dragon Quest Swords: The Masked Queen and the Tower of Mirrors is most definitely an easier and more watered-down RPG, it is nonetheless enjoyable and can stand alone as an RPG title accessible to many who may have not been able to play an otherwise too-difficult genre. It features a very simplistic battle system, easy to use Wii-mote controls, and only clocks in at about 10 hours (perhaps 12 if you go for 100% completion). But these few elements strengthen this game and make it more marketable to those who have never played a Dragon Quest game before, and that is a good thing. "
