Review: Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen (DarkZero)

"Last year’s Dragon’s Dogma was a huge surprise for me. I had not paid much attention to the title, but due to my inherent love of role-playing games, I simply had to check it out upon its release. Lo and behold, it ended up being one of the best games of 2012 and made it into my personal top ten of the year list. There was much to love about the game, from the feeling of adventure to the quality combat mechanics that had you battling huge mythical beasts, climbing on them – à la Shadow of the Colossus – and bringing them down to the ground to place the final blows. The pawn system was unique, allowing players to travel through the traitorous land of Gransys with three companions - came from friends or random players through a server feature (had decent AI too) - and have them fight alongside you in battle. Within all these great ideas were some aspects lacking that final bit of polish, which a true sequel would hopefully solve, but while we wait for that, Capcom has decided to offer an expansion to the original game to fix some of the smaller issues and also offer a test to veteran Dragon’s Dogma players." (DarkZero) (Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, Xbox 360) 7/10
