  • 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.

Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen Review

25 April 2013
  • Summary: Capcom have surpassed themselves with Dark Arisen, producing an expansion that feels focused and centred, rather than merely adding a load of new loot and kill quests scattered around well-trodden locales.

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

11 July 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.

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.

  • 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

16 September 2015
  • Excerpt: Det originale Dragon’s Dogma fra japanske Capcom var lidt af en underlig størrelse. Det var en lettere besynderlig cocktail af vestlig åben arkitektur blandet med udviklernes egen Monster Hunter.
  • Pros: God udfordring, spændende nye omgivelser, hele originalen inkluderet
  • Cons: Pawns kan stadig irritere, diverse teknisk fnidder

  • Conclusion: peut se révéler vraiment exigeant au moment du choix des pions, ce qui vous pousse à les changer très souvent. Lors de la mission pour sauver Quina, la fille du chef de village, vous devez aller la sauver puisque la demoiselle s'est perdue dans les bois.
  • Pros: Le système de pions, une excellente idée, Le récif de l'amertume, du contenu à haut niveau, La personnalisation poussées des personnages, L'ambiance musicale et sonore, Pouvoir s'accrocher aux boss et continuer de les frapper en vol, Son prix
  • Cons: L'IA des pions pas toujours très efficace, Pas de vrai multijoueur, Des graphismes pas vraiment à la hauteur
