... a mediocre rating to a game that I initially enjoyed a great deal

Summary: This is probably the first time I've given a mediocre rating to a game that I initially enjoyed a great deal, but Dragon Dogma has some almost deal-breaking problems that creep up later in the game, and I'm guessing that those giving this game four or five stars either lucked out and never met with...
Summary: It's a decent game. I don't love it the way I do with Skyrim, but it passes the time. The quests are a bit boring and I can't stand the pawns saying the same lines over and over again, but the idea of the pawns is pretty cleaver.
Summary: I have a great anecdote for my opinion of this game. I was wandering around on my way to a mission fairly early on in the game. I suddenly encountered an enormous troll (which is a higher level boss enemy) wandering around the world. I fought for a brutal half an hour, and finally killed it.
Great graphics, pawn system interesting, too much running

Summary: A solid RPG a lot like Skyrim, but there's waaaay too much running from place to place. I have no problem that the quest lines are fairly open-ended, and sometimes you have to flee an overly-strong opponent or fail and retry.
Get Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen instead, the Superior Experience

Summary: I provided a review for Dark Arisen, the expansion, as well (which is much better) but here is a quick breakdown of the game: Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen is an open world, 3rd person, action/rpg where players are given a variety of vocations, or classes, that offer different methods of fighting.
Summary: Dark Arisen is just an extension of the original Dragon's Dogma released almost a year earlier. It does not have added trophies which is a disappointment. It does have new items, weapons and armor and some story elements.
Summary: This includes both the base game and the DLC expansion but the fact that this was the only way to acquire the DLC was very shady, this was made worse by the fact that the expansion is primarily recycled content.
Summary: So this game had a lot of potential, but I can't see why people are giving it 5 stars. The good: A lot has been said about the lack of a fast travel system. I see this as a plus for the game. It makes you really think before you set out.
Summary: In reading this review, please keep in mind that I'm not an avid RPG player.
My main exposure to RPGs is getting mid-way through Oblivion, though I am a
HUGE fan of the Demon's/Dark Souls series. Trailers and the like, even the demo for this game, looked very promising to
