This game is alright;but when facing the dragons especially the ancient one why is it out of all the places you have to hit it right on its face. Mind you its where it does it biting attack,fireball and wall of flame the dragon has a 90% chance in hitting you dead on. I mean really why do that they should had let you hit it anywhere also not where you can hit you most of the time; and just hope the equipment you have and items will help you stick around alittle bit longer in the fight. I personally I like to move around find places I can do damage and still have time to take cover not be in the eye in the storm and just hope I wont get hit too much; but if I choose to just stay in one place then is my choice;and also you get 2 life points when facing this bad boy dragon and the goddess powers cannot reach you but when you try purchasing more life points they only kick in when going only during adventures only not when facing the dragon. The game is pretty good though with graphic nice approach for a RPG something unique and different.
Great Artistc Graphics. Fun, but gets boring fast.

I like the art style of this game. The fighting reminds you of a side scroller, with a gauntlet feel. It can be a bit chaotic, as your character will get lost in all the fighting, especially if you have other players along for the ride. You wont know where you are, and it quickly becomes a hardcore button masher. The story really isn't that special, didn't keep my interest much at all, but it was ok. The upgrade, equipment and accessories UI is a bit tedious and wonky. Almost made me not even want to level up my character.
I did like aspects of this game. I like how you can resurrect new allies. The messages they leave behind over their bones are hilarious at times.
The graphics were the best. The cartoon art is unique. The gameplay just gets boring after a while because you often repeat the same dungeons to do side quests, fighting the same enemies in the same on screen chaotic battles.
Its good for a rent to blaze through, but I wouldn't but this one.
Dragon's Crown does a fantastic job of elevating the classic side-scrolling brawler, a genre that really hasn't seen much evolution in the past decades. If you liked old arcade brawlers like TMNT, Double Dragon, Dungeons & Dragons, and Golden Axe this game will be a treat.
Combat is much more in-depth with a variety of attacks for each different class. A skill-tree allows the player the choose what types of attacks and traits they level up, and allows the player the control the development of their character. The game also incorporates elements of "loot games" and after each level, the player will pick up large amounts of treasures that can be used or sold to the in-game merchants.
Despite all the improvements, at the end of the day the game is still a brawler though and the repetitive combat does get a little old after a while. I found it difficult to play for more than an hour at a time. Still, it makes a great rental and it's worth sinking a dozen or so hours into.
