Worth getting? VERY YES. Worth getting if you don't understand Japanese though? Probably not. The gameplay is fun but the story and characters are massively important parts of the games and it just wouldn't be the same without them.
They are without a doubt my favourite Falcom games though. Cannot wait until Legend of Heroes 7.
It works, of course. I prefer to play it on an emulator, rather than on a real system, because you can fast-forward it. The encounter rate is SICK! You'll even encounter enemies standing still, and sometimes they'll pop up INSTANTLY after a battle has ended. Overall, it is a bad game, but at least it has charm, so it can still be enjoyable. I could never bear to play through it though, because of its constant battles (that aren't entertaining in the least) and the terrible, almost non-existant story.
By the way, the Japanese version can be had, fully complete and mint condition, for $1 or less on Ebay, so I recommend that over the English version, since you know Japanese.
The voice acting most likely sucks in that too, but at least the English one is hilarious, in a crazy way.
PS: The Mega Drive version is way better than all of the others. It's hard to come by, though. Well, not THAT hard. At least not on Yahoo Japan, there's almost always at least one copy available there.

Uh, yeah. I actually own Dragon Slayer: LOH PCE Japanese. XD Wish I paid $1 for it. :P
And you know why I got it? I liked one or two tunes is why! :P Hooray for redbook audio!
So yeah, I never played the game before. The only PCE games I have and tried were Ys I & II and Ys IV. I also have Ys III and Wizardry V: Heart of the Maelstrom (which I bought for the music. Again. ^^) but never tried those.
Dur, meant to say, if you want Dragon Slayer, wyrdwad, I can send it your way. I don't even touch the thing anymore. I can't remember if I have (or if it came with) the obi though.
Oh yeah, silly question but ... the game only consists of 1 disc, right? ^^ Also, I have no idea what generation owner I have of this but if it was just owned by one other person, the person didn't really care much about taking care for the manual or the poster. >_> I hate people like that.
I actually found the damn game, sitting at my local video game store. I checked out the begining and its pretty damn 1991ish. I loved Vay, Lunar and what little I played of Cosmic Fantasy 2, and this game is very similar. What I cant get over is that stupid fake Scotish accent the old guy uses. Total cheese, but oh soooo 90's good.
