Is it Dark Souls meets Skyrim? Read our Dragon’s Dogma PS3 review to find out.
I played the demo and it's ok. Id rather buy dark souls. I beat demon souls and love that game. It's tough but once you understand how to play it there's nothing more rewarding. I still need to try skyrim out.
demon souls = amazing dark souls = amazing skyrim = skip it. your better off playing morrowind if you need to get your elder scrolls on
All I'll say is they're two different games. If you want good combat, go with dark souls. If you want good story, go with skyrim. But dragons dogma seems to have both of those down from what I can tell. Maybe it'll be a happy in between.
Im convinced. I'm going to buy dark souls today. And to topdudeman you are right about the combat for dark souls. That's why it's such a great game, and let's not forget about the boss fights. There's nothing like taking down a big monster.
"If you want good story, go with skyrim." uh ? Not sure i follow . Skyrim is more like if you want to explore the land and have your own adventures . Skyrim doesnt even have more story than both DS games . And dogm is just its own beast , an action adventure games with tons of rpg elements and chunks of monster hunter .
lol, sandman, if you liked demon's souls, I dunno why you even hesitated on buying dark souls.
Skyrim is pretty good and has kept my busy for a few weeks.
I liked the Demo and thought it showed the games potential. I wouldn't compare it to anything on the market. I think it is it's own type of game with the pawn system.
Can't wait to release my magic archer :)
loved the demo, day one, also the way you can let other online players use your npc helpers seem really cool idea
The problem with the demo is that you're completely overpowered. There's no sense of achievement when defeating the bosses. All it did was introduce the mechanics into the game. I'm pretty sure it would've been a lot better if we were to start from scratch all the way up. The review scores seem to be consistent with being great so it's a safe buy.
I think it's balanced because if you see the capcom livestream on youtube you can see that bosses are very common,and making them too overpowered is unbalanced(especially for people who just started playing). And in demos you're supposed to be overpowered.
"And in demos you're supposed to be overpowered." What? A demo is supposed to be "representative" of a small portion of game, if you notice the huge disconnect between player's hands-on and reviews, there is a big difference within both experience. Case-in-point: Spec-ops: The Line demo. It's pretty much the sample of what the game is all about that includes deaths, I don't feel any "overpowering" advantage about it. Again, had DD properly introduced the game to what it is then maybe our hands-on approach would be more in line with the reviews that are coming out. This game had 2 chapters, a prologue and some other level. The first one had you at LVL.30 and you're telling me THAT is the experience of someone who's going to start off that powerful? Imagine Dead Space Demo with ALL the weapons at max grade - wouldn't exactly have a proper bearing to what the game is about, right?
It's unfortunate that in the demo you were way overpowered, it nearly turned me off the game before I found out...Yes you are horribly overpowered in the demo. Some Devs think that 'difficult' turn off alot of people so they make sure the demos are not hard. This game is supposed to be very difficult though. Wanna take a risk in this game? It's a big risk, you'll likely come across something you can't handle.
