  • Conclusion: An amazingly bad western-style RPG designed by people who just don't get it.
  • Pros: Exciting and interesting combat system when everything works.
  • Cons: Awful environments, ghastly graphics, terrible controls, insipid story, abstruse mechanics, should I go on?

Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen

Destructoid

  • Summary: Sometimes, dragons may double-dip I thought Jim was spot on with his review of the original Dragon's Dogma . It had grand ideas, but in many areas, it failed to execute them, and was marred by some fairly glaring design choices.

Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen

GameTrailers
24 April 2013
  • Excerpt: * Line added in regard to trading items (4/25) The original Dragon’s Dogma is well worth playing thanks to its developed sense of adventure and discovery, imparted by perilously long journeys and harrowing fights against foes with distinctive behaviors and exploitable weaknesses.

Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen Video Review

GamerNode
24 April 2013
  • Summary: Dragon's Dogma benefits from Dark Arisen's content, more closely approximating the type of play suggested by the game's atmosphere - congruence that was lacking from the initial release.
  • Pros: Dark Arisen content varies play, Interesting world begs exploration, Oppressive atmosphere, Lots of meat in inventory/equipment system, Great
  • Cons: Excruciating travel/backtracking in main game, Frustrating pace discourages exploration, Poor AI, Exhausting ally banter, Lack of combat intricacy and balance, Challenge feels unnatural

Dark Arisen adds some great new content to the excellent Dragon's Dogma, though the new dungeon's unbalanced difficulty turns fun into frustration.

  • Summary: On Bitterblack Isle, there's always something nasty lurking in the darkness. Perhaps it's a ferocious wolf that snarls and charges, forcing you to run to safety or block its substantial weight.
  • Pros: Bitterblack Isle features lots of great battles with fearsome foes, Ominous atmosphere and pensive story enhance tension on the isle, Eternal ferrystone eases the burdens of long journeys, The main game remains a special thrill
  • Cons: The grueling final third of the new dungeon lacks any sense of balance or fun, Pawns require more babysitting than ever

Gransys Gains A Deadly New Playground

Game Informer
22 April 2013
  • Conclusion: Concept: Re-release the action/RPG with a host of extras including additional endgame content Graphics: Bitterblack Isle has its own unique look, but the rest of Gransys is varied and full of surprises Sound: The pawns are still chatty, though you now have the option of hearing their original...
