You are the Arisen, destined to stand against an unwelcome Dragon in the land of Gransys, a world brimmed with typical RPG scenery. You know, bandits aplenty, quests on notice boards, goblins in every nook.
Combat is the main draw. Enemies are varied, often massive menaces, and can be clambered aboard, ala Shadow of the Colossus. Your vocation dictates where you should position yourself on the field, but from all perspectives the battles demand that you use the full spectrum of skills available.
So far so familiar…but more like a great Best Of album, rather than NOW! 89.
As the Arisen you have the faith of the Pawn Legion, meaning through an online element you fill your party with customised ‘pawns’ from other players, re-specking to suit. This sets Dragons Dogma apart from its competition, putting a fun twist on party creation, and keeping the familiar formula feeling fresh.
