Summary: Squeenix does it again! Another interesting game by Square-Enix. Drakengard has simply gorgeous graphics and is overall very addictive. Gameplay is relatively easy, though sometimes tedious. The plot is split into chapters, and within each chapter are Missions, Movies, and Events. The player has control during Missions and partial control during events. Movies are stunning, albeit slightly graphic, FMVs. There are two modes of gameplay: Story and Free Expedition.
Excerpt: "...crazy storyline; when I got Drakengard a few years ago I could already tell it was something worth a play. Now that I have the chance to write down and consider the pros and cons of Drakengard after playing it several times over the years, I'd have to say that while the storyline was unique and different from others (though confusing), the game play can be repetitive, voice acting was somewhat poor concerning some characters and the camera angles ...
Pros: Unique story line, mostly good voice acting and great cut scenes .
Cons: Somewhat repetitive game play, annoying camera angles and the plot is confusing .
Summary: This game caught my interest mainly because of the main character and the big dragon, since then I wanted to play it. It is quite a fun game but it can get extremely hard later on. The game allows you to fight on foot as the character where you can wipe out armies of enemies, the majority of the time this is how I played, I preffered using the character more than the dragon, however sometimes the dragon was needed and was a great way to escape dangerous situations.
Pros: abilty to use dragon and fly away when in danger, good combat, lots of enemies
