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 :)
They're armed, Master!
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.
Third time i bought this game and I couldn't be happier.
