cant figure out what the big deal is about this game. I quit playing it after a few hours. A few hours of doing nothing but running and dying and listening to the on-going rambling of my pawns. Drove me crazy.If you want a GREAT game, play skyrim.
After reading/watching the reviews for Dragon's Dogma, I wasn't expecting much. But, I have been pleasantly surprised to say the least! Yes, there are a few minor glitches here and there but on the whole it's a great game. The graphics are beautiful and the scale of the game is impressive. The voice acting can be a little cheesy, but still pretty decent. The only thing I've found kind of irritating are the "pawns" that you can have accompany you on your journeys. When gathering ingredients or items you find on your way, they tend to get in your way and try to take them before you have a chance. They also often ramble on about irrelevant things (though you can choose to have them talk less). But despite these minor irritations, you almost have to have them with you. It can get rather challenging without them if you're not leveled up properly. Preparation is huge too - a lot of forethought is needed and a large amount of time can be spent upgrading armor, weapons, health potions, etc. so that you don't die immediately when wandering about. It's very Skyrim-esque, just not nearly as polished. I would recommend this game to any of my friends and I plan on purchasing this game in the near future. Enjoy!!
