Dragon's Dogma Review: Ambition Enough to Trump Flaws

 

Capcom takes a shot at a new genre and proves to have respectable aim.

Dragon's Dogma Review

 

Dragon's Dogma so desperately wants to be something special. But it doesn't strive to mimic or emulate; it doesn't wish to blend with the elite crowd. It desires a very distinct sort of “special,” an experience that doesn't easily settle into the...

The Ugly: “Yes, that is a big tree. I heard you the fifty-eighth time, damnit.”

Dragon's Dogma Review

 

Engrossing and frustrating, Dragon's Dogma is a flawed and unique gem.

Fantastic combat encounters against awesome monsters ; One of the best boss fights in any role-playing game, ever ; There is always a surprise around the corner ; Atmospheric touches that make the world feel authentic ; A series of striking choices...

Tedious backtracking through familiar territory ; Annoying pawn behavior ; Bizarre quest-related and story events

Such moments are the culmination of Dragon's Dogma's outstanding combat scenarios. These are some of the best-animated creatures in any game to date. You've never seen chimeras like this: part lion, part goat, part snake, and all fearsome. The lion's...

A fiery breath of fresh air.

Original concept; Challenging enemies, towering bosses; Astounding level design; Open world ready to be explored; Solid pawn system; Lasts for a long time; Transparent loot system

Story and world could be cultivated further; Lip-synching issues, NPC dialogue overlap; Clipping issues, graphics can look dated

Strictly based on the status quo, on dissecting a game through the standard reviewing procedure, Dragon's Dogma should be given four stars out of five, but it deserves more than that. I'm usually the critic who nitpicks RPGs for their storytelling and...

Dragon's Dogma seems like a strange, bold project for Capcom. Combining a Japanese development team with concepts widely associated with Western RPGs, it's shooting to hit that lucrative market that's been getting into titles like Skyrim and Dragon Age...

The first moment you mount and clamber up a giant enemy like a miniature version of a Shadow of the Colossus boss. Awesome.

Dragon's Dogma Review

 

Capcom's experimental action RPG is a gratifying challenge with interesting and exciting highs amid a handful of unspectacular lows.

It’s a strange game, Dragon’s Dogma; it does some really brave and interesting things, but it also feels unfinished, with technical problems that often spoil things. The combat, though, is one of the best real-time RPG fighting systems around, with...

Dragon's Dogma

 

Of all the games announced by Capcom in 2011, Dragon's Dogma caught my eye the most. It boasted visuals reminiscent of Demon's Souls, a winding world of huge beasts in the same vein as Monster Hunter, and huge battles against mythical creatures that...

Should you play Dragon's Dogma? Yes. The high points are so very worth getting to, and while the main game will be cleared in a number of hours, there are lots of monsters to battle and a dose of end-game content to clear, providing more than enough to...

Dragon’s Dogma Playtest: Dragons May Cry

 

Dragon's Dogma's combat isn't quite Devil May Cry, but it's the closest I've experienced within this genre.

Is Capcom's ambitious RPG worth adventuring into? Find out in Drew's full review.

Brilliant pawn system ; Deep game play ; Fast paced combat ; Wonderful world ; Pure hardcore RPG elements

Story and characters are lacking ; Limited fast travel ; Character models look bland ; Difficulty can be brutal at times ; Checkpoint system is very limited

Dragon's Dogma definitely had a lot of promise. It could have been absolutely fantastic, but clunky battle mechanics and a lack of any immersive story make this title fall short. Hardcore RPG fanatics will no doubt think the game is great, but casual...
