In case you’re unfamiliar with the original Dragon’s Dogma, make sure to catch up with our review on it:
The game’s poor autosave feature didn’t help aid in my enjoyment either, as I learned the hard way that you constantly need to be manually saving the game, especially when exploring the world. You could be out venturing for an hour or two and then suddenly come across the wrong pack of bandits who wipe you out without a moment’s notice, bringing you back to where you last remembered to actively open the menu and save the game. I’m sorry, but this is completely unacceptable by today’s standards, especially when the game presents you with a decent level of challenge with every enemy encounter. Honestly, there were a few instances where I just wanted to cry in frustration.
That said, those of you with thick skin who like a good challenge will probably be able to overlook some of the flaws that a more impatient gamer like myself are quite sensitive to. Dragon’s Dogma serves up a role-playing experience that was designed for those truly loyal to the genre in its purest form. The gameplay is great and the unique Pawn system makes you feel like you’re playing with others even though it’s a single player experience. The world of Gransys is massive and will keep you busy for many, many hours. If you’re looking for an experience that will last you quite a while and don’t need a compelling story to keep you coming back for more, then Dragon’s Dogma is right up your alley.
Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is set to release on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 3 in North America and Europe, and October 5 in Japan.
