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.
Summary: Working on my backlog of video games I started playing Dragon's Dogma a few months ago and recently completed the game. In that span of time I've run the spectrum of emotions concerning DD - from loving the game then later to hating it.
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.
... 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: Back when I had first started playing on the PS3, I looked up possible games deemed worthy enough for me to spend $60 on. "Dragon's Dogma" sounds awesome, so I looked up a YouTube review and was disappointed to see that that particular reviewer, who I trusted, absolutely hated the game.
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.
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: The gameplay and storyline felt way too slow for me, and It's hard to grasp... it got that emptiness similar to Dark Souls 1 and 2, where you just enter an area where you don't know what your getting yourself into.
