There are so many aspects to the original Dragon’s Dogma that made it a fantastic game. It was beautifully crafted, with stunning scenery, massive mythical monsters, and grand castles dotted about the landscape. Not only this, but the combat was a refreshing change to the usual RPGs, combining real-time combat with tactic based fighting. The different player classes, which can be changed at will (for a price, of course), helped keep the combat exhilarating as well as fresh. Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is not necessarily a sequel. Nor is it really DLC. It’s best described as a refined version of the original title, with some added extras for die-hard fans and newcomers alike.
