Dragon's Dogma

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Of all the games announced by Capcom in 2011, Dragon's Dogma caught my eye the most. It boasted visuals reminiscent of Demon's Souls , a winding world of huge beasts in the same vein as Monster Hunter , and huge battles against mythical creatures that bear more than a hint of Team ICO's work. Very promising. Although few paid attention to it at first, the game has drawn more eyes as more content was revealed, and with good reason.

Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: 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. With a full sequel, Capcom could really craft something special and fix a lot of the issues the original suffered from. For now, you'll have to deal with Dark Arisen , an expansion and semi-update for the game that essentially uses the exact same shell of the original.

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 Japanese voices Playability: Character building is deep and rewarding, and the enhancements are good for new and veteran players Entertainment: Dark Arisen skillfully treads the...

Dragon’s Dogma

Tech2
2 September 2012
  • Excerpt: The current generation of console gaming has seen a lot of criticism being directed Capcom’s way thanks to an acute case of sequelitis; not to mention its newfound dependence on third-tier western studios to create said sequels. There just wasn’t enough quality original content coming out their Japanese development dens, which were once the toast of the videogaming world churning out mega-IPs that shaped the industry.

Dragon's Dogma Review (PS3)

About.com
11 August 2012
  • Conclusion: Dragon's Dogma Image © Capcom Game length has become a major source of player anger in the last few years. It makes sense that in an era of increasingly tight wallets, people would want to make sure they get enough bang for their buck. As far as gameplay for your hard-earned dollar, one cannot deny that "Dragon's Dogma" delivers. I wish the storytelling was more detailed and accomplished but the world is one that I look forward to visiting again. And again. And again.

A Dragon Takes Flight

GIN
11 July 2012
  • Excerpt: With the release of Skyrim, medieval games have a steep mountain to climb. When I looked over the case to Dragon's Dogma, I was a little concerned about it being an Elder Scrolls knock off. I was pleasantly surprised that it had a different sort of mechanic and story flow, and a vastly different gameplay. One really cool feature was the Pawn system. Pawns are human entities that come to aid you from a different realm.
