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. Dark Arisen is a re-release containing the original game as well as a sprawling underground dungeon holding untold treasures and vile creatures of every ilk -- a considerable addition to an...
Excerpt: Player(s): 1 Extra Features: Download Content Dragon's Dogma is Capcom's new action role-playing game (RPG) with open world exploration. The player takes on the role of the "Arisen". The Arisen is a hero chosen by the dragon. That hero's destiny is to stand up against the darkness and eventually defeat the dragon.
Excerpt: One of the most interesting things about Capcom’s Dragon’s Dogma is trying to classify the genre. While it is indeed a Fantasy RPG, the game takes elements from many other genres including survival-horror, action-adventure, and even some elements of an MMO.

Excerpt: It would've been easy to overlook Dragon's Dogma after it was announced last year. Sure, Capcom has released a few stellar action RPGs over the years with the Monster Hunter series, but this was a brand new game with its own mythology from a company that hasn't exactly been completely winning their fans over with their recent releases and business decisions.
Excerpt: It’s difficult to decide what to make of Dragon’s Dogma at first blush. The look of its fantasy is unrepentantly conventional and the online features that it’s built upon are not exactly intuitive to grasp until you experience them. And then there’s the daring action game that rests at its core. Does this open-world RPG cohere into something memorable, or is it just overreaching?
Summary: Dragon’s Dogma is the reason that I play videogames. Dragon’s Dogma isn’t perfect (and no game is), but it definitely is a masterpiece. I would stay stuck to the screen for hours playing this game. The more I played it the more I loved it. Everything in this game is immensely satisfying.
Pros: Innovative Mechanics, Excellent Combat, Massive Open World
Cons: Occasional Lip Sync Issues, Difficult Game, Occasional Camera Glitch
Summary: Liefhebbers van een uitdaging kunnen Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen nu aanschaffen voor PlayStation 3 en Xbox 360. De heruitgave is voor beide platformen te koop op schijf en als download op PlayStation Network en, later deze zomer, Xbox Live.
