At first I was leary about the game, it looked like some kind of cheap version of Skyrim or Dragon Age, or a combo of both, but when I started playing I couldn't put the game down. The plot is unique yet similar to classic stories of valiant knights. The world is massive, and the gamplay is excellent. Recommend it for ans of RPG's and action games.

While the combat system was decent. The story's continunity was completely overlooked. Characters were suddenly dropped in with little to no preface. usually when a new character is dropped in it is a twist, but this was hardly the case. The game was bad and capcom should feel bad for releasing it in the US.
I can only recommend this game to people who have lots of time to spend wandering around the game world and managing their inventory. This isn't a simple 'point A to point B' game. You leave a town and you're on your own. After wandering around for 10 or 15 minutes you may be killed by a boulder falling from off-screen and have your progress reset. It was at that point I turned the 360 off and returned the game.
The story's kind of lame, there was really no character development in the few hours I spent playing Dragon's Dogma. So don't expect any drama. Graphics are okay. There's a lot of screen tearing and two black bars you can't get rid of even though you're playing on an HDTV. Another annoying quirk of the game is how your companions will constantly repeat themselves during exploration.
Overall I'd say this is like a cross between Dragon Age and Monster Hunter, both great games. However this is not a great game. A decent rental and nothing more.
