Reviews and Problems with Dragons Dogma: Dark Arisen

Showing 1-10 of 36


11 September 2013
  • Excerpt: A Western-style open-world RPG like Dragon's Dogma seems like a natural fit for PC, and I suspect I'd have been more charitable towards it if I'd played it back when the console fans were first getting in.
  • Pros: Chasing a griffin across the map...
  • Cons: ...and then having to walk all the way back.

Expert Review

18 July 2013
  • Summary: I love a good adventure game, no matter how it’s broken down. Whether it’s first person, third person, a hack-and-slash with RPG elements, it does not matter to me. I want to play them all and I want every last one of them to be good.

7 June 2013
  • Excerpt: Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen isn't an all-new entry in Capcom's new fantasy action series, but an enhanced version of the original which shaves off a few rough edges from the previous release.
  • Pros: Bitterblack Isle is a great addition, dripping with atmosphere.
  • Cons: The insufferably slow Ox-driven escort quest to Gran Soren returns.

16 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...
  • 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 ...

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.

Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen review – Dark Souls 1.5

23 April 2013
  • Summary: A great value bundle that includes the original game, the new expansion, and some of the best action role-playing since Dark Souls.
  • Pros: A significant expansion and the world of Bitterback Isle is impressively well designed. Plenty of new enemies and equipment. Pawn system remains an interestingly unique feature.
  • Cons: The debt to Dark Souls is embarrassingly obvious at times and doesn’t help the game’s already poorly defined personality. Combat and visuals still lack punch.

Verspätet, dafür komplett

14 January 2016
  • Summary: PC-Spieler haben es nicht leicht, wenn es um Portierungen von Konsolentiteln geht. Oftmals müssen starke Verzögerungen im Release hingenommen werden. Die Fans von GTA V können ein Lied davon singen. Bereits im April 2013 erschien noch für die alte Konsolengeneration Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen.
  • Pros: alle DLCs und Bonusinhalte in einem Spiel, starkes Kampfsystem, gelungenes Vasallensystem, abwechslungsreiche Spielwelt, von Beginn an frei erkundbar, Budget-Preis, passender Soundtrack, niedrige Systemanforderungen, 60 Frames pro Sekunde
  • Cons: technisch veraltet, etwas unübersichtliche Menüs, kein Koop-Modus
