Dragon Quest IX: Sentinel of the Starry Skies is a Adventuring game. Adventure games are enjoyed for two reasons: they provide enemy encounters that require tactics and strategy to conquor, and they create a fantasy world in which to explore and adventure.

Dragon Quest IX: Sentinel of the Starry Skies can be played in a Singleplayer mode. Single Player Campaign games focus on one player's experience. Rather than collaborate with other players either locally or online, players progress alone. The campaign style of gameplay offers a connected series of challenges to play through.

Single player games are able to focus on one experience of a scenario, so that it is usually a richer, more visceral game.
