Although the storyline is not a multi-layered one , and it's kind of predictable but it's a good start for a role-playing game.

In Dragons Dogma, it's clearly focused on the upgrading system, like in other games of this genre. Once your experience has reached a certain level, you will be able to unlock some skills. However, the way you choose from a wealth of skills is what distinguishes the hero as well as the style of the game. It should be noted that Dragon Dogma introduced elements in the role-playing style of the world-famous gamers, which for sure many gamers have long been wishing for the presence of such elements in the world of gaming. Of course Dragon Dogma can not be regarded as the height of the roots of the great elders, but because of the innovations in the game, this work can still be considered as a good and accepted role for the last few years.It should be noted that Dragons Dogma introduced some new elements in the open world role-playing genre, which for sure many players have long been wishing for the presence of such elements in the world of gaming.

Dragons Dogma: Dark Arisen meets every expectation that you had from an RPG game in the gameplay section. From the very beginning of the game, like many games of the same style in the first place, you must select the gender of the character and then design your character After the completion of the design, it is time to select the classes in the game that should be between the classes: Wizard, Warrior and ... the one to your liking and choose to play. During the game, you will be able to catch and use whatever is visible around or on the ground. From the glass to the various types of weapons available in the Dark Arisen world and many other things, each of which will be in the main parts of the game. However, the makers of this section have limited that if the capacity to remove objects and Your weapons will be filled. Due to the heavy weight you will not be able to remove anything from the ground, so you should always try to collect important and useful weapons and objects that will be useful to you. so if you are old school RPG player you should try this game!
Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen is a very strange game. Imagine if Skyrim, Dragon Age: Origins, Monster Hunter, and Dark Souls had a love child. Throw in some quirky Japanese design, and that is Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen. My initial impressions of the game weren't very positive, but this is one of those games you really need to invest some time into. It definitely gets better the longer you play it, and the moment you unlock more vocations to use. This game is incredibly janky. The animations are silly. The combat doesn't always work well. However, there are moments where it absolutely shines, and you just enjoy the glory of it. I will say traversal isn't exactly user-friendly (takes forever to get anywhere early on), and managing stamina can be a real chore. Other than the act of just dungeon crawling, killing monsters, or doing the main quest, the other major pillar of this game is likely the pawn system. You create your pawn (companion/follower) using the same creation you used for your player character. He/She can be customized in a variety of ways and facilitates a variety of needs. They aren't incredibly interesting (they don't really have minds of their own), but you can build your pawn as well as recruit other pawns that other players have created. This is one of those games that has a lot of rough spots around the edges, but as an incredible amount of charm and worth at its core. I certainly wouldn't say this is a game for everybody, but if you are mildly intrigued by any of those games I mentioned above as inspirations for this one, give DDDA a shot. It won't be the most polished game you've ever played, and certainly doesn't have the highest production values, but it's definitely a unique experience we don't see very often either. I definitely would heavily consider buying a sequel to this game, should Capcom ever make one. For now, I imagine Monster Hunter World will be the closest thing to a sequel for this game when it releases next year.
"DD" has been the most expensive of Capcom's projects over the past few years. so, many expectations comes from this title. Unfortunately, due to the graphic situation of other titles made at the company's studios, DA can be considered the most optimistic. The game is powered by an updated MT Framework, which in general has a stunish atmospheric. The night-time cycles and lighting in dark and terrifying scenes are positive features of DA, and in addition to spectacular animations and shading, they are very suitable for the scene. DA satisfies most of the requirements for an Open-World Role. At the very beginning of the game, there is the possibility of personalizing the main character and selecting gender, the class of combats, and so on, which is one of the first features of the top rated titles of this style. the hero of the game and one of the fellows can choose from one of the existing classes that are divided into warrior, witch, shooter, and so on. from the beginning, it shows one of other standards among the titles of its role and that is ability to collect thousands of different items. from the collection of various objects to the types of fruits and leaves of plants to drinks and various potions, each of which has a separate property. to sum up, DA is a unique experience that goes along the path of the main title. this version does not have any point to make changes to the game, and it seems a bit odd to play in a full-fledged game.
A lot of fun to play with plenty of classes to pick from, though some are rather lackluster. The companion system works well for the most part with being able to make your own traveling partner though they can get a bit annoying until you tell them to shut up repeatedly to change their personality. The best part of the game by far is fighting the big beasts. You can mount them, hit their weak points, knock off bits of armor or parts to collect for the crafting system etc. Sadly the big beasts are lacking in variety so it can get old, but it's still always a delight to find one. Pros: * Interesting lore * Fun combat that feels kind of like Monster Hunter * Excellent companion customization of appearance, and Strategies * Online companion system is fun, allowing you to find a new companion for the niche you need easily. * A copy of your companion is put online where players can use and rate them, and possibly send back items if they did well. * Plentiful amount of classes to choose from and swap to. Cons: * Lackluster enemy and zone variety makes the game feel small. * While companion attitudes / strategies are extremely customizable, actually doing so can be very tedious and will have to be repeated as your commands change their strategy slowly. * Some classes are lackluster or outright bad * Poor character growth, new equipment doesn't change the feel of combat a whole lot and there is very little customization with leveling up. The game definitely shows it's roots, feeling like an open world version of monster hunter with RPG elements. Don't come into this expecting a smaller skyrim, but instead a bigger monster hunter. A very fun game for $30 / $24
