Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen Review | GodisaGeek

Nicola Ardron: "A fairly lacklustre remaster does nothing to diminish what makes Dragon's Dogma such a unique and memorable role-playing game. For fans of western style action RPGs it's a must play."

I just noticed I already own this game on PS3 through PS Plus. Any bug fixes or improvements in the PS4 version making it MUCH better or should I just play it on my PS3 ?
I would like an opinion from a Dragon's Dogma player out there that played through the PS3 version because it seems like a great game what must have flew under my radar when it was released on PS Plus.
Edit: Just saw that PS4 version includes ALL DLC released for this title... Hmmm...

Ps3 release was at a low resolution, and had black bars on the top and bottom of the screen if I recall.
I played through on pc, ps3, and Xbox 360.
The pc or new remastered version is the way to go, especially if you never played the expansion. It has a smoother experience, no more black bars, and more content.

Id recommend either playing the PS3 version that you own, or waiting until the PS4 version is on sale. It’s a fun game though.

Thanks for all the informative answers ! :)
I guess I try out the PS3 version and if the resolution and black bars is bothering to much on my 4K TV i just wait for a christmas sale or so and buy the (complete) PS4 version.
Seems like I missed a great game according to your posts, so thanks again :)

Framerate alone is worth the switch. The FPS on the PS3/360 hovers in the mid 20s, with frequent dips below that, and gets down into the single digits if things get busy.

Now, I don't know if the PS4 version runs at 30 or 60, but the framerate of the PS3 version is so bad, that even if it's locked at 30 it will be a significant improvement.

Ok. Great to know. 😊

It's probably good, but it wasn't good last gen just after we bought the original & then they came out with the Dark Arisen DLC as a full priced game shortly after with no option to get it for the original.
