  • Summary: Dragon’s Crown is a side scrolling/Beat em up/RPG for the PS Vita & PlayStation 3. You can select one of six different characters from an assortment of your normal RPG batch of dwarf, mage, human, amazon etc. Each type has their own stereotypical look, for example a woman with silly sized boobs or a warrior with pecs Governor Schwarzenegger would be proud of. The first thing you’ll notice about Dragon’s Crown are it’s beautiful visuals.

You’ve never seen an action RPG like Dragon’s Crown

Quarter to Three
29 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Dragon’s Crown sure is beautiful. That’s not really saying much when you talk about a videogame these days, where graphics quality is so often praised regardless of artwork. As long as the tank, dragon, or space marine is anti-aliased, some yahoo is going to call it out for “jaw-dropping” graphics. But Dragon’s Crown is artwork at its best and most distinctive.

  • Summary: I love Dragon’s Crown. No, perhaps it would be better stated that I love, love, LOVE Dragon’s Crown (have to get all three love’s in there). Vanillaware’s incredible beat’em-up-based RPG absolutely captured my heart as I stated in my The same time that I was playing through the console iteration of the game, I was also taking my saved progress on the road with the Vita version as well.

(PS Vita Review) Dragon’s Crown

The Entertainment Depot
6 August 2013
  • Summary: Dragon’s Crown is another feather in Vanillaware’s crowded cap. The class-based system works well, offering a wide variety of skills that provide sufficiently different experiences for each character to warrant spending time leveling up several at a time. The online component and ability to venture out for extended periods add a great sense of camaraderie and excitement as players push their party to the limits.

How To Fit An Arcade In Your Pocket

  • Conclusion: The years of effort that went into Dragon's Crown culminate in an excellent modern take on the classic arcade brawler that turns out to be a perfect fit for the Vita. If you've got both a PS3 and a Vita, we recommend the Vita version.

  • Summary: Dragon's Crown may look like a typical beat-'em-up on the surface, but once you sink your teeth into its character customization, equipment system, and wealth of side quests, it reveals itself as an action role-playing game trapped in the shell of a side-scrolling brawler. The compulsive loot hunting and brisk combat that drive Dragon's Crown have also fueled beloved franchises such as Diablo and Dungeon Siege, and there are gimmicks and activities that add variety to...
  • Pros: A variety of enjoyable character classes to explore, A deep skill system that lends itself to variety, Boss fights incorporate interesting and challenging gimmicks, Some of the best and most original 2D art around
  • Cons: Some offensive and unavoidable character designs, The story feels obligatory and lacks depth, Combatants sometimes blend together on the battlefield

Dragon's Crown

The Gamers Temple
12 June 2013
  • Excerpt: Here at The Gamers' Temple we don't generally cross-post reviews between systems. If a game is played on the PS3, the review is posted as a PS3 game review and a copy of it is not just slapped into the Xbox 360 game review list. We review what we play, play what we review, and don't make assumptions about cross-platform games on other platforms.
