Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen

Empire Online

  • Summary: Rather than delivering downloadable content to enhance the Dragon’s Dogma experience, Capcom has instead opted for a budget re-release of its rip-roaring adventure, complete with a foreboding new island to explore, advanced equipment, an expanded roster of enemies, and gentle cosmetic changes that make the package feel slicker and less clunky.

It’s not too late to join the Wyrm Hunt! Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen reviewed

17 June 2013
  • Excerpt: For those of you who have never had the pleasure of playing the original, let me tell you what you’re going to get from the Dragon’s Dogma universe. This is one of those games which manages to not only bring some compelling gameplay to the table, but does so while also creating an honest-to-God original fantasy world to play around in.
  • Pros: An engaging, original fantasy world, An open world to explore loaded with threats, huge and small, The asynchronous multiplayer pawns are fun to swap with friends, Gorgeous graphics, good voice acting, and a great opening song, Loads of loot and character / pawn customizability, Dark Arisen adds a ton of content to the original game, but…
  • Cons: …it’s hard to recommend it at full price to original Dragon’s Dogma owners, Pawns can be a bit too yappy, Not everyone appreciates challenging games

Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen

Ready Up
3 May 2013
  • Summary: Dark Arisen is more of a rerelease with bells and whistles than a piece of DLC, and owners of the original game will have to decide whether they are enthused enough to reinvest in it. However buying this is an absolute no-brainer for any RPG fans who are yet to experience one of the most original, strange and downright fun examples of the genre this generation.

Dragons Dogma – Dark Arisen (Xbox 360)

Game Review Database
29 June 2013
  • Summary: "Capcom ist es gelungen mit "Dragons Dogma - Dark Arisen" immerhin etwas draufzusatteln, auch wenn man noch immer einige Schwächen erkennen kann. Dennoch ist der Weg schonmal der richtige und es ist den Machern gelungen ein unkonventionelles RPG zu schaffen, welches zunehmend Laune macht.

Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen

19 June 2013
  • Summary: Role-playing games, in de volksmond beter bekend als RPG’s, zijn tijdrovende spellen. Je steekt er veel tijd in om een personage een hele ontwikkeling te laten doormaken. Het kwijtraken van een savegame is bij RPG’s dan ook een regelrechte nachtmerrie. Het maken van een degelijke RPG is iets waar Japanners vooral de bovenhand in hebben, maar met onder andere The Elder Scrolls lieten de Westerlingen weten ook wel kaas te hebben gegeten van het genre.
  • Pros: Bitterblack Isle, Fast-travel, Prijs
  • Cons: Grafisch nog altijd achterhaald, Te weinig vernieuwing

Expert Review

17 June 2013
  • Conclusion: En somme, Dragon's Dogma Dark Arisen n'est pas une calamité, mais il y a tellement mieux en la matière. On sent l'envie de bien faire, on voit certaines orientations intéressantes, et on peut être sûr que si Dragon's Dogma 2 il y a il sera épique, mais en l'état cette nouvelle mouture ne satisfera pas grand monde. Les fans du jeu originel peuvent s'y pencher sans complexe ni retenue, ceux qui n'ont pas accroché peuvent passer leur chemin...
  • Pros: Des améliorations notables, Le nouveau donjon, Des combats prenants
  • Cons: Techniquement hors d'âge, Toujours des allers-retours, L'une des IA les plus aberrantes vue depuis longtemps, Interface ratée, Saleté de caméra!
