i am used to playing many loot styled RPG games, though i mostly stick to games with a feel to them that reminds me of skyrim.
I don't tend to stray from this style because i find that when i put the effort into different rpg's such as say two worlds i find that i fell extremely unrewarded and unsatisfied.
Dragons dogma is nothing like skyrim. Yet i found myself all the more entranced in the gameplay style that Capcom exhibited in this incredible game. i will admit that i was extremely confused by the games looting system. Until i killed the gryphon i actually thought that the weight rating system was the defense and damage points for weapons and armor. upon this discovery the game instantly became quite manageable
the only regret i had was that there was no game play after completion of the storyline. and that the storyline though quite fulfilling was very short as it only took me around 8- 10 hours of game play two of those hours largely due to my blunder with reading the weight as damage.
If I could describe this game I would say it would be close to a Skyrim/Kindgoms of Amalur combination. Is this game as good as those 2 games? No, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't try this game out.
Environments and Graphics
Epic Boss battles
Nightime feels like Nightime
Custimazation of your character and your pawn
New Game+ option
High replay value
Poor sense of direction
No fast travel system
No quick button press for Map
Overall this game is above average, but not on the level of Elder Scrolls V:Skyrim or Kingdoms of Amalur. If you like those 2 game then you should definatly give Dragon's Dogma a chance.

I am late to the party for this game mainly because I played the demo and didn't like it or maybe I just didn't get what the real game would be like. Then I was like, why not, and rented it anyway. Man, I am a bit mad at myself for not picking this one up earlier. This is one of the best rpgs I have every played, and yes, I have played many. This is an rpger's rpg if that makes sense. It is like a little dash of Dark Souls with a dash of Skyrim and a little bit of Dead Rising thrown in for good measure. I used Dead Rising as a reference because it had that feel to it in some ways. Of course, Capcom made Dead Rising but to get back to my point, GET THIS GAME. IT IS EPIC.
