Game description: Dragon Quest V grand adventure that unfolds over three generations of heroes. Take your place among a family of heroes, sharing in all the triumphs and tragedies of their storied lives! Our story begins with a small boy hero, travelling the world with his father, Pankraz. Over the course of his many adventures, this lovable lad learns and grows. And when he finally becomes a man, he resolves to continue his father’s unfinished quest -- to find the Legendary Hero.
This PlayStation 2 version remakes the classic RPG with new features and visual presentation. While much of the game will remind you of the original Super Famicom version, the world of "DraQue" and its characters and enemies are now presented here in 3D. Enemies now have lots of humorous animation patterns and frames. The battle backgrounds have great depth to them, allowing you to see mist flowing against mountains in the distance and waterfalls. Finally, the music is completely orchestrated now.

Using the english patch version, 3 hours into the game and I've yet to notice a menu out of order issue using the hardware OpenGL renderer, so that is definitely fixed. Haven't been able to notice any weird colors in sprites either but it's still early to fully verify that. Pcsx2user
