Dragon's Dogma: Wait for that stamina to recharge

Dragon's Dogma is a supreisingly fresh game that brings a interesting and new way to create a party of 4 people and brings a good combat system to rpgs. While the game is extremely fun and will consume many hours of your time there are several faults to the game.

-The AI in the game is terrible.
~Many times you will find your AI counterparts to be completely useless unless they have the correct presets selected to actually act upon the world. If you have a pawn that is set the guardian and your character happens to be a long range dps then that pawn will circle around your pawn waiting for something to come close while not actually doing anything.
-There is no fact travel in the game.
~While I can understand that they were trying to create a more immersive experience the no reliable fast ravel will really get to you after the 30th time running from Gran Soren to the Emcampment or from Gran Soren to the Bluemoon tower.
-What story?
~ Until the very end there is virtually no story to speak of and the side quests are not necessarily good enough to compensate for it.
-Lack of lisyncing.
~It is really bad. So little time was spent on it that it;s noticable the instant a npc talks.

Why play Dragon's Dogma? Because the combat is extremely addictive and it'll hook you right away! Definately recommend the game.

The story is much like a lot of the open rpgs, sorta dry and very little of it. The combat, leveling and pawn system is great! Climbing a ogre to stab him in the eye, or climbing a griffin before it takes flight to cut open a wing.... very much about weak points. No real crafting system, but lots of stuff to upgrade.
