I love video games, and for a large part, game like Skyrim and Dragon Age.. that being said, this game is almost a perfect mix of both of them.
It started a little clumsy perhaps, took some getting used to (never been threatened by a wolf before), but once you figure out the basic play of the game, it can be very fun and rewarding.
There's still plenty of leveling up and treasure looting, and customizing armor, weapons, spells, perks, visual style... you Pawn is basically another you that helps you and other players online to help gaining a certain kind of XP.
The monsters, while tough, are incredible, taking the Snake, then Goat off a chimera while jumping on it's back and slicing away at the Lions face.. spells being cast by your Pawn from a distance.. it's truly an amazing game.
While I could say there were a few things I missed, like Fast Travel, and (Waiting) to pass the time, it becomes more difficult to travel at night, and you must remember to carry a lantern and oil.. and it would've been an easier, faster game to complete if those were included.. but without them, you get a real sense of what it'd be like to be in the character's shoes.
All in all, this was one of the most fun adventures I've ever been on with my Playstation, and would suggest it to anyone that is interested. This game was AMAZING.
Dragons dogma is something that amazingly everyone likes while I am sure some just got it for the resident evil 6 demo at first, (which was part reason i got it) I also have a ps3 and cant get the demo till september. This game I figured would be good but i did not know how good. I have grown up playing many RPGs. Just to name a few, final fantasy, Phantasy star, shining force, and straight to kingdom hearts, elder scrolls,
Yes I know there are a lot more and i have played those are just some off the top of my head I even have the most recent rpg besides dragons dogma, Kingdoms of amalur reckoning which i am still playing alonside this.
there is one thing i want to say though this game is challenging in some ways cheap with glitches but most ways being just fair. If you are not the type to experiment and fight a challenge constantly this game may not be for you.
What I mean is like I like to play and encounter enemies then face the challenging boss but then the game eases with the minor enemies. NOT THIS GAME, this game even a simple group of bandits can take you out if you try rushing in unprepared. I would say this game is as hard as demon's souls but I dont think this is. The hardest part bout this game is you only have ONE save slot so if you do something and game auto saves thats that.
Still though to me thats what gives this game its own identity and thats y I enjoy it if you dont mind the challenging aspect of the game, some backtracking, and a few bugs, you will find some great boss encounters great customization options and a great new concept which I am sure everyone has heard bout the pawn system
