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: 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.
Summary: This is a more accessible game than dark souls. Every bit as hard core, but the menus are easy to navigate, and the story is not quite as abstract. Don't get me wrong, you still probably won't get the story fully, it's a JRPG. That being said, this games battle mechanics are amazing, as long as you play as the warrior class. The battles are epic, and grand. I made a big mistake at the ending of the main game, and some day I'll have to start over, though.
Summary: In the Western world, Dragon's Dogma received generally positive reviews. Aggregating review website Metacritic gave the Xbox 360 version 76/100 and the PlayStation 3 version 79/100. Game Informer gave the game an 8.5 out of 10 and stated that "I left the game feeling that I made my mark on Gransys the way I chose to, instead of being escorted from plot point to plot point. When you're talking about an open-world game, I can't think of higher praise.
Summary: To start with this is one of the better RPG games I have played in a long time. So....What is the difference between Dragon's Dogma & Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen? Dark Arisen is the same game as Dragons Dogma except this has the expansion Bitterblack Isle. In other words if you are going to buy one you I would buy this version. First off if you are starting Dragon's Dogma Dark Arisen at the beginning...you definitely need to get Ferrystones.
Summary: Great game. Not the best character creation. Another silent protagonist. Can't really think of anything else that I've disliked so far (60+ hours in) Though I would recommend just getting the updated "Dark Arisen" version of this game, as it comes with much more content. The combat is fun. The "pawn" system (summoning support characters that other players have created) is very innovative. All the online functionalities are available with a free (silver) account.
