Before I begin my review, I just wanted to say I don't understand the hype or backlash or what have you about most of the female drawings and animations in the game. They have large breasts and are sexy. That's not really new to video games...or movies...or comics...or books...or anything! That being said, if you can get passed that, you will enjoy the game---at least for a little while.

Dragon's Crown is pretty fun to play; its system is easy to get used too and the controls are simple enough to pick up. You go to different lands to defeat one of two bosses, in order to get a Talisman, that will help defeat the dragon master boss of the game. The bosses each have a set level, so you have to level up a bit for a better chance of victory. This makes the replay value high. Also, you can do quests that earn you money and experience points, for those who are getting stuck on the boss fights. The animation is really bright and bouncy. From the jiggling breasts to the flowing beards, the animation pops! The music is standard and nothing spectacular. I found it fun to level up and collect different weapons; to do the quests and view the amazing art work. However, after I finished the quests and passed the game, I found it more repetitive. I was playing more and more to level up, but since I've passed everything, the allure and excitement was gone. Also, to pass it with ONE character is tasking enough---to pass it with all six characters would just take too much of my time. I have not played it online so maybe that adds a bit more fun and challenge to the mix, but I can't say for sure. I do know I had fun playing this and getting trophies and while it was a bit repetitive, it is addicting too. I would recommend renting first; buying it when the price drops. Overall, I give this title a 7/10!

Golden axe is over-rated! Try this instead!

Is it getting to a point where we can't write about what is in a game for fear of being vulgar? Hmmm..
Anyway there are other games that fit this category of game..
golden axe series(SEGA)- over-rated brawler that was frustrating to play, and their most modern effort was a lazy god of war clone..
king Arthur and the knights of the round(SNES)- introduced a primitive leveling system to this genre..
King of dragons(I think it was called)(SNES)- featured a fighter, cleric, wizard, and was it an elf? or an archer? don't know can't remember! That game looks ALOT like this game except the graphics and style are way different!!
modern era games like this include
code of princess(Ds)- which is also made by atlas...
and then well that is it, basically...
This game blend 2d side scrolling action with RPG. The Character graphics don't change any except when you change weapons which are ALWAYs of the same class as the type your class specializes in. You CAN customize your abilities and you can equip various articles on your character to give you a serious boost. You can replay areas you have cleared for extra experience and loot.
New weapons are obtained via loot that you pick up after the stage is cleared, BUT ONLY if you open the treasure chests that you find in the stages! The fact, is that your thief RANNIE, the rogue actually takes the items from the chests, and then gives them to you after the stage is cleared.. You can also only change your equipment in town, so you have to go prepared ahead of time.
Looney Left wingers are BORED, which is why they are complaining about the women in this game. The Women of this game aren't all that bad, but they are made sexy, then again, the guys have so many muscles it like they have steroids on tap or something, bear chested too.. This game was made to carry the sexy look, yet people only complain about the women??? The guys in this game are just as bad, and they are just as comical! Try Before you buy!

This game has some neat looking art, but it feels like a souped up Golden Axe.

It's worth a rent, but I sent it back the next day.
