Dragon's Dogma Review - OXM


Capcom’s new RPG certainly starts off with a bang. After a brief tutorial and a robust character-creation sequence, you’re thrown into the game proper, where a dragon decides to ravage your peaceful fishing village. You vainly take up arms against the beast, only to have it rip out your still-beating heart, then fly away. Somehow, you live, and you’re now called the “Arisen.” Humanoid servants (“Pawns”) follow you around and most people treat you as a savior.

"Why do villains always crave your heart? Why not a lung or toenail?"

That sums up the entire review... I just can't take it seriously.

-Word, that review = shit, Sounds like the writer was trying to compare it to Skyrim with the complaints about the "Bland" over world, -Except they forgot that the game looks quite Nice from the developers stream I watched last night! :)

funny, 'cause loved it. I don't know if they are in relation though

Pure BS . I've seen them give free passes to incredibly buggy and run of the mill games , and suddenly they wanna do the job and get picky ?

The game is a solid 8 , or even 9 if we go by the usual (low) standards of the medias .

Rofl they are the kind of outlet that gives something numingly bland and unchallenging like Prototype an 8 , or hold back stuff like the Witcher to 8.5 for very little reasons so ....

And since people love so much pointless comparisons to Skyrim , they are the kind that wouldnt find any fault to it … despite the same " issues of blandness " by spades , and the technical issues

just like i said in another review (comment was quickly removed) because this is a capcom game it'll get 7's and lower by most people who nit pick everything and ignor everyhting that is good about the game jsut like when square enix publishes a good game it gets bombed in the reviews because it's square enix, hell i watched an ign interview (or gamespot) that gave uncharted 1 a 6 because it didnt have online wtf (then the game came out the video was quickly changed to a solid 10 :/ )

this why developers are sequel dependent, because if you try something new, entitled reviewers will bash it for something it's not.

and by it being a new ip running on a open world proprietary engine of course it's going to be rough around the edges.7.5 to 8.5 (even some9's) should be the norm for what this game trys to accomplish.

it takes two of three outtings to make a world like gta or tes.
