Ten reasons why Dragon's Dogma is the greatest RPG ever
11 March 2015
Summary: 1) There's no fast travel (besides the portcrystals) because fast travelling is for people who want to complete the game - Dragon's Dogma is for those who want to enjoy the game. 2) Shadow of Colossus and Skyrim had a baby. That baby is Dragon's Dogma. 3) It's really hard!
Pretty good if you go in with the right expectations

Summary: I bought this to fill the time while I wait for the next Skyrim or Dragon Age to come out (as I expect a lot of others have done). While it's held my attention pretty well, I probably won't bother to finish it. So this review is based on my partial experience after a couple dozen hours of play.
Summary: This game is just fantastic. The character creation, although a little simple, was thoroughly enjoyable. Add to that hundreds of weapons and armors that you can mix and match, over a hundred abilities, and many classes to choose from, you can make a truly unique and interesting character.
Summary: Many games get overlooked for various reasons. This is one of those games that I had overlooked and regret not buying sooner. The story is a fresh change with many concepts and myths that are familiar woven into the the world.
Summary: Surprisingly great game. Having heard next to nothing about it, I didn't think it'd be this good. It is difficult, but that just adds to the enjoyment. Now, at first it seems very confusing, and it takes a while to get a good hold on the games workings, but after that it is smooth sailing.
Summary: Love the game. The Boss fights are great. If you played Skyrim you will enjoy. Gotta pay attn though .. some of the quest can and will alter game. But with NG+ you can play again and keep all your stuff and status/level and run the missions that you may have missed out on or didn't get to complete...
Summary: I highly recommend it to those who love Souls games, Skyrim, Shadow of the Colossus and Monster Hunter. Although the NPC animation/movement is a little bit terrible and the world is not as interesting as Skyrim, combat in DD really stands out, and so does vocation system.
Summary: This is an absolute must play for any fan of the genre. It has the best combat in RPGs, hands down. The pawn system is absolutely amazing! And the story--which is an element of the game often criticized--is one of the game's strong suits. It is as deep & intricate as you'll find anywhere in gaming.
