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. Pros - Great character customization up front - The opening sequence really pulls you in, although it's a little overwhelming to be sucked immediately into complex battle moves.
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. The story alone is fun enough to play with, but with all kinds of monster to kill and loot to find, why would you settle for anything else?
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. Combat is clean and flows well including the ability to change classes known as Vocations in game I never feel frustration at repetitive gameplay.
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. Also it arrived quickly and ahead of time, so I appreciated that. Also in good condition.
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 due to these decisions.
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: I'm having a lot of fun trying different Vocations, exploring, and fighting monsters. I found the controls slightly weird at first, but it works well, and I was quick to adapt to it. The beginning of the game can be a little challenging, feels kind of like a Dark Souls Lite, if there were such a thing (got killed in the same place a few times), but it gets easier after you level up, get better gear, learn the terrain and enemy tactics.
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. What you need to know about the story, however, is this: it's not spoonfed to you, you have to find much of it on your own, which is, in my humble opinion, a strength.
Summary: This game has alot of things in it that remind me of final fantasy, like the cockatrice for example. How many games have a cockatrice besides FF? There is many more things derived from FF if you pay attention. It's just refreshing to play a game like this if you've been playing any elder scrolls titles. It might not be as big or as pretty, but I would have to say it's almost as pretty, and this world is not small by any means.
