Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is five years old now, but it’s clear that this game has the potential to stand the test of time. The complete package is certainly not perfect, but I was more than willing to grit my teeth and take its faults in stride. That said, I really want to see what’s next for the series. Dragon’s Dogma Online has been around for two years now, but with how much Capcom has pushed this series in recent years, I feel like the time for Dragon’s Dogma 2 is nigh.
Despite Capcom's uninspired remastering, Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen remains one of the best action RPGs of the last decade. Tight controls hold together thrilling combat, and the sense of adventure that the game exudes is almost unmatched. At its budget price, newcomers should definitely give the PS4 release a fair chance, while veterans will find a good enough excuse to begin the cycle all over again.
I hate to sound like I didn’t enjoy my time with the game. There’s a lot to love about Dark Arisen, but it’s hard for me to ignore some of its more glaring issues. If you’re an action RPG fan who has been looking to sink their teeth into a meaty game before the end of the year, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is definitely worth checking out.
