OXM UK: Dragon's Dogma Review - "a rough diamond"

OXM UK: "This is a Japanese role-playing game that's trying to appear Western, and at first glance that makes it look hopelessly bland - compelling you to traipse around a dull-green world fighting goblins and ogres with swords and magic. Don't be fooled: this is one of the most interesting, exciting games we've played in years."

The story is too old to be commented.

Diamonds are rough...
and are created in rough ground..

I pre-ordered this earlier this month, I cant wait. It seems really fun but at the same time Im not an RPG fan, I loved the demo though, I like the action and the whole idea of Japanese producing a westernized RPG. Deep down I also want it due to it having the RE6 demo.

I don't think a cliche is gonna make a game any better

I like that it has different gameplay elements. This is where I think Japanese developers can shine in the west. Join the Western party of real-time action RPG's with opened worlds, but create your own identity.

This is the first time that I agree with you wholly, pappy. Can't wait to pick this up.

the demo didnt really convinced me, but at least its partially on my radar for now. I definitely wont pay full retail, but i might get it later on when its discounted

First attempt at a new franchise which is trying to remedy some of the problems with current open world RPGs and you aren't gonna support it at launch when numbers count the most?

the demo was only decent for me as well but not enouogh to deter me from picking ti up.

1. i like supporting new franchises

2. its the first in the franchise so i give it a pass on minor issues

3. its trying something new and different, points in my book

4. im hoping it gets better than the demo, demos dont always do a game justice. ex: i didnt liek the rayman origins demo, picked it up for 15 anyway, amazing game

I like all your points there, and reading all the previews and now a couple reviews, apparently the demo is nowhere near how awesome the full release will be
