    One of the best last gen, ok port.

    This was one of the best action rpgs of last gen, and while its a much appreciated port allowing us to enjoy the game on the latest console hardware, the graphics could've used a little love as the lighting outside of really nice looking torchlit caves and dungeons are really rough looking outdoors given its washed out artstyle. Still its a super fun game with plenty of different classes to experiment with which you can change anytime you're in the main city. Combine that with a companion character you set up which you can rent out to other players online and the awesome enemies and gigantic beasts you'll come across in your journeys make this one of the most memorable fantasy gaming experiences you'll likely ever have. Great game, try it out.

    Dragon's Dogma is an amazing game to pass the time with. If you like Skyrim you will love this game no doubt about it. I'm giving the review an 8, only because their is a few mechanics that should have changed for the remaster. Fast travel- You will be doing a lot of running from point A to B constantly. In a world the size of Skyrim that gets quite annoying after awhile. Ferry stones are way to expensive to purchase because you will want to buy new weapons and gear for you and your main pawn. The game is quite hard, it will not hold your hand while you play. Especially at lower levels you will die constantly if you are not expecting a battle. Boss battle are amazing with the grab mechanic letting you climb all over dragons, cyclops's, hydra, etc.

    Great Mix from Good Titles Even Though Outdated

    This game is throughout enjoyable and massive in scope. The combat feels good, when you swing your axe it feels impact (unlike Skyrim). The game can feel overwhelming at times and sometimes difficult to track where you are suppose to go, but if you enjoy getting lost and exploring this game is for you. For instance, I was trying to get to point A, but ending up in a Church, by the time it was over I forgot I was even going to point A. RPG elements are strong and the Pawn system is a unique take on your party. Basically, you can summon other peoples characters as NPCs and they can fight along with you. There is a graphical different, but nothing too memorable. If you are looking for a lengthy RPG to fill your RPG void I would look no further.

    Bought this game because i have always wanted to play it back when it came out for the ps3. have had a blast with it so far but have not had much time to play. there is defiantly a big time commitment here and it takes hours for the game to pick up and turn into something exciting. the overall game play is fun but it lacks that initial draw that keeps you playing for hours at a time. i would recommend this title but strongly cation you that if you don't have a lot of time to play i suggest going and getting something else that would provide more of an initial entertainment value as this game requires you to invest a lot of hours before you can really have some fun.

    A grand adventure

    Dragon's Dogma is unique creature. At a glance, it resembles your typical fantasy-adventure with goblins, harpies, and ogres patrolling the landscape. Yet under the hood, therein lurks a surprisingly introspective tale about fate and the acceptance of one's destiny woven into the otherwise seemingly by the numbers tale of a hero slaying a great evil. Combined with a varied job selection that allows players to be a spell slinging wizard to a fast-hitting strider or a sword/club wielding warrior, Dragon's Dogma has just about everything a fan of D&D could want. A haunting soundtrack brings the world to life with epic choirs, while touches of rock music bring the epic battles to life.

    Fun open world RPG with a hint of Devil May Cry

    Open world RPG from the creators of Devil May Cry 4. Really had fun with this one. There are a few things that could be annoying, depending on your playstyle; for instance the way fast travel is handled and night time in the game being REALLY dark and that darkness being filled with really powerful enemies. Besides that, there's a lot to like with this game. A few small details I liked were being able to douse an enemy with oil, hit them with fire and they take more damage and stay on fire longer; similar effect if their wet, lightning attacks do more damage and have a higher chance of stunning them. Overall it's a great game and definitely worth $30.

    Great last gen RPG at a decent price

    I would compare this game to Dragon Age 1 and 2 in terms of gameplay. Since your party consists of pawns (only 1 you can level up), if does feel a little more like "filler" than a fleshed out character. And boy those pawns are repetitive!! Yes I know.. wolves hunt in packs!! Haha. On the plus side, the ability to climb larger enemies and slash away is a nice departure from other games. Lots of content here for your $ though (esp if you have BB GC discount). If you are a fan of western RPGs I would highly recommend it....it won't blow you away but it will fill plenty of hours with some different game dynamics.

    I rarely have multiple playthroughs of games, but this was an exception. I've probably put over 300+ hours into this game over the years. The enhanced visuals and smoother framerate make this game even more enjoyable now than it was back in 2012 on the last gen consoles. The visuals are dated compared to most games today, but the gameplay holds up extremely well.
