    Underrated action RPG

    Dragon's Dogma is a vast open-world action RPG where you complete missions and fight challenging bosses. A lot of the game's enjoyment depends on the player's choices. You can choose to play the fairly linear story missions, but that may come as a consequence as you progress—the difficulty does ramp up, so it's greatly encouraged to complete side quests to level up your character. Overall, it's a fun character-driven story that stands just as tall among other like-minded​ games like Skyrim.

    I was on the fence about this game for a bit. I had seen all the hype from everyone on the internet and said there's no way this game is that fun....then I played it! yes, the game has its problems and can be a bit janky, but overall I can't stop playing it. the combat is great and the big battles are awesome. and that pawn system is just wonderful! if you were on the fence about this game, I say JUST BUY IT! it is $30 and has a ton of content to keep you busy. it is worth the money

    Good open RPG, shows its age

    Admittedly, I'm only a few hours in, so take this with a grain of salt, but here is my impression so far: It's a good open world RPG with a lot of depth, but it shows it's age in terms of quality of life/overall experience, and it's only an easy recommendation if you've played through the other open world RPGs (or their ilk) already available on the switch. If you've already played through Skyrim, BoTW, XBC2, then consider this one — at 30 bucks, it's not a huge risk.

    For $30 this is a wonderful open world rpg experience with amazingly rendered monsters and a unique party system that lets you interact with other people's games even though this is strictly a single-player game. This game's best attributes are a flashy over the top combat system and fantastic spell effects. This game has a loyal fanbase and all of the above should tell you not to miss out on the lesser known gem of a game. Many hours of adventure await!

    Been looking for another good RPG to play on my Switch, when I saw Dragon's Dogma. I've heard of it on previous systems, but never had the chance to play. After seeing some great reviews for it, thought I would give it a try. Absolutely enjoying it. Love that it's portable. Looks pretty good, sound is great and gameplay is top notch.

    This is the first time I play Dragons Dogma and must say I was craving for a game like this since I finished Zelda Breath of the Wild. Graphics look good, cut scenes look even better. Gameplay is very smooth and satisfying. Open world exploration is great too. For just $30 you are getting a lot of content here.

    Good Port of a Solid Game

    Great little rpg that I missed out on during it's first releases in the 2013-2014. The port is pretty solid especially in handheld mode but has a few performance issues. Some pop-in and occasional framerate drops in docked mode. The game itself is quite fun for a western rpg from a Japanese studio.

    Takes Time

    No one told me that this game is not fun for the first 5-6 hours. I was about ready to return it but it really opens up once you pass a certain point: in terms of classes, abilities, everything becomes much more open. 4 stars for the wasted first hours.

    This is a really fun game, and highly recommended if you never played it originally. The switch is a great home for it. There is a ton to do. Think of Skyrim mixed with Dark Souls a little. The world is fascinating and action very good.

    First time playing this game and so far I am in love with it. You can tell at times the game does feel a little dated, but it is still super fun. I would highly recommend this game to anyone who likes action adventure games.

    I was pleasantly surprised at how well Dragon’s Dogma played on my Nintendo Switch. The frame rate was good.. playing mostly in handheld mode. Plenty of action and hours of fun.

    While it is an older game the visuals aren't the best but what it lacks in visuals it makes up for in gameplay. Very deep and can last a long time if you do all the classes.

    Previously played this on the xbox360, enjoyed it then, enjoyed it now. However, can seem a bit dated graphically, but runs pretty well on switch.

    If you played the original, then you will enjoy this one too. It doesn't look as great on the switch as other consoles but its still fun to play.

    This is a great port that plays and fits the Switch well. It is a slow starting game and there is not a lot of hand holding so get ready to work.

    This game starts off bad. Like boring bad. As you start getting the world open to you it gets better. Fast travel is annoying though.
