It definitely ain't that, chief. DQXIS isn't particularly innovative, but that's what makes it appeal to fans of old school RPGS; its simplicity is reminiscent of times past. It's fun and there's nothing really wrong with it (aside from use x Pep Attack against Y enemies quests, those are the worst), but it doesn't really do anything to establish itself against all the other JPRGs out there. It's accessible and has nice callbacks to the older games for returning fans, and another benefit of its simplicity is that it's easy to pick up.how it's the best JRPG since the golden age of JRPGs featuring Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy 6
It's definitely a solid game but I'd be hesitant to exaggerate the praise to that degree. You're prone to set yourself up for disappointment if you go into a game expecting it to be the best thing ever.
