Dragon Fin Soup review for PS Vita, PS4 | Gaming Age

Seeing as Dragon Fin Soup is free for PlayStation Plus members this month, I can see the appeal of grabbing it. "It's free!" I can practically hear people saying. "How bad can it be?"

To answer to that rhetorical question: very. So bad, certainly, that it's not worth the precious space it takes up on your memory card, let alone the time it takes you to download. In short, Dragon Fin Soup is a lousy game that manages the impressive feat of not being worth a price tag of zero dollars and zero cents.

"Moving Red Robin around with the D-pad is a massive pain, and it only gets worse when you get sucked into a battle — when, as you'll quickly discover, there's no way of instantly turning to face your attacker, because why would you want to do that? Instead you get to fiddle with unresponsive controls and flail helplessly as enemies pound away at you, and it only ends when your familiars or party members are able to kill the monsters themselves."

What? Moving with the D-pad works just fine and you CAN turn to face your attacker instantly (without using a turn in battle) using the left or right stick. It makes me wonder if the reviewer even bothered to play past the first mission or even learned all of the controls.

This 'review' doesn't even touch on other aspects of the game, like the crafting or loot. It seems to only complain about losing money because they hit everything in the town with their weapon. There's a simple solution to this: just don't do that in the town! There ARE other ways to make money, like selling loot you pick up in dungeon areas. You know, where the villagers who might get mad at you for destroying their property DON'T live.

The only thing I agree with is that the art style and graphics are a little too muddy. Other then that, I've been enjoying this one myself. But I like games that have you grind dungeons for loot, and of course that type of game isn't for everyone.

EDIT: I also wanted to add that I've tried this both on PS4 and Vita and it seems better to play on the Vita due to the touch-screen controls. It's much easier to deal with your inventory and use things like bombs and bullets in dungeons.

Love this game,.. Wish (for trophies) you did not have to do them in one sitting,.. It resets the count of skeletons killed/Crap made crafting) every time you load the game,..Also hope the UI gets improved a bit
Also don't think crap leveling up with you is really fair in survival,.. Think it is stupid,.. basically have to know what level you should be at each floor,.. since you can get overpowered beasts fast if you linger

I quite enjoyed the game. But yeah if they'd bothered to read the instructions they'd have known you can turn to face your enemy without taking a turn.

I haven't play the game but I check user reviews in steam just because I was curious if it's really so bad like this dude says & it have over 100 positive reviews & the people there point that some issues with the controls or UI have been addressed already with patches few days after it's release, so this guy "rage" just to rage, I will recommend to find other resources to get info & opinions about this game as there countless people who fall in love with this game, just ignore this hater.

They need to hurry and patch it for Vita, I think the PC version receive a few patches already.
