    What you essentially have here is a definitive edition of one seriously amazing action RPG.

    A classic after all these years, Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen has certainly been outclassed in many areas and this PC port shows it, but its peerless combat and peon mechanics are still features that many current day games would benefit from incorporating.

    A very special gaming experience that no RPG fan should miss, especially this brand new version that improved an already great game.

    Dragon's Dogma was never prefect, but it was good enough to overcome all its shortcomings and have us playing for hours and hours. This PC version is also the best way to enjoy it.

    The gameplay is a healthy challenge. It’s good value for money. All in all it’s such a charming and engaging piece of work that as soon as I’ve wrapped this review up I’ll be straight back on it. So farewell.

    Not perfect, but still a shining example of a stellar RPG and one that fans of the genre should readily seek out.

    So Dragon's Dogma has worthwhile elements even if it feels dated, and even if I very nearly quit just before hitting the all-important twist that actually made the story worthwhile.

    An absolutely amazing game; great combat system, big ass monster climbing, lots of exploring, great graphics for an already older game and aAn absolutely amazing game; great combat system, big ass monster climbing, lots of exploring, great graphics for an already older game and a really interesting pawn system.
    The main story/quest line is good it feels kind of lacking compared to everything else the game has to offer.

    For anyone who likes a medieval setting with mythical monsters to hunt or if you wanna spend a night in dungeon cell, it's a must have.

    As a 99% pure pc gamer, i'm glad this made it's way to pc

    Пользователи пеньков всегда очень сильно радуются выходу консольных эксклюзивов на эту платформу, отсюда мне понятны эти восторженные отзывыПользователи пеньков всегда очень сильно радуются выходу консольных эксклюзивов на эту платформу, отсюда мне понятны эти восторженные отзывы об игре, но..

    ..это плохая игра.

    Типичная японщина, в которой..
    а. Не умеют делать интерфейс.
    б. Собрали много европейских мифов в одно целое и не постарались дать чему-либо объяснение.

    Отойдя от термина "японщина", хочется дать непосредственные коментарии по игре:
    1. 66% игры - беготня туда-сюда, 33% игры тупой гринд (тыканье оружкой в мобцов)/20-минутное убивание одного большого монстра, 1% - сюжет и остальное.
    Кто-то скажет: "а зачем ты гриндишь моба?" и они будут правы, тогда соотношение изменится до 95%-4%-1%. Так явно не интереснее, поверьте. Потом у вас появится бесконечный (а есть ещё разовые) телепорт и пара переносных точек приёма вашего тела, но нет, лучше не станет.

    2. Рука серии Дарк тут видна повсюду и повсеместно. Берут у лучших, в укор этот факт не назвать, но оригинальностью не блещут.

    3. Пешки. Уверен, что они, всего-навсего, не смогли реализовать ко-оп, который бы смотрелся на порядок лучше, чем то, что есть сейчас. 3 пешки порой мешают друг другу, 1-2 было бы достаточно. Хотя стоит отметить, что благодаря пешкам вас в игре не постигает чувство одиночества, которое могло бы накатить на вас во всяких данжах в любой другой игре.

    4. За систему крафта я бы хотел дать по рукам тому, кто её реализовал в таком виде. Экипировка также не оставляет приятных эмоций, хоть и быстро привыкаешь к ним.

    Плюсы есть в игре несомненно, не зря же я в ней (по состоянию на данный момент) провёл 30 часов. Подробно про них говорить не буду, по моим ощущениям вся приятность этой игры заключается в пунке 2. Рука серии Дарк.

    Игра далеко не “...absolutely a must-buy”, но на безрыбье и Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen - нормальная игра, но она плохая.

    6,5/10

Idea of the game is nice, but this piece of garbage is nothing more, than Idea. Do you think, that DAI was bad ? Then try this...
    Do not even waste your time and it's not worth even if they will give this trash for free...
