4.0 out of 5 stars A different kind of RPG, 10 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dragons Dogma: Dark Arisen (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I will keep this review brief and to the point. Initially I found the game had a slow start but after 10 hours or so and understanding how it all works (as some aspects like levelling aren't as obvious as other RPGs) this is very engrossing and addictive.

The main plus points are that it is challenging but not impossible (like Dark Souls), a great sense of adventure and the combat is great. Upgrading equipment is slow and steady so when you get a better piece of kit it feels like a genuine upgrade. The pawn system is also a bit different and interesting and the enemies varied and some are very cinematic to fight against.

The main things stopping this from receiving 5 stars are a few technical issues (screen tear and especially pop-up), the characters aren't very fleshed out (so you never really care about them) and the dialogue can be a bit hammy and repetitive.

Overall if you like RPGs and fantasy worlds with decent escapism try it - this is a great value purchase.
