Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen could have reached new fans and old alike. It was a chance for Capcom to lock in an audience for this burgeoning franchise. But poor balance and careless design limit its appeal to a tiny group of the most hardcore. The original Dragon's Dogma didn't completely succeed in its attempt to emulate Western, open-world RPGs. Dark Arisen makes a much greater mistake: It fails to recognize or capitalize on its own strengths.

Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is technically the best version of 2012’s RPG, but the new content leaves something to be desired. It only becomes interesting after the dungeon is cleared, when enemies are both strengthened and varied, leaving the first playthrough to be lackluster. Regardless, packing it in with the main game is a solid move and the imaginative gameplay mechanics still remain some of the best in any action-RPG.

Dark Arisen is a great expansion for a game that was already loaded with content. If you’ve beaten the game and moved on, there’s enough new stuff to explore that it warrants another playthrough. And for those who are looking for a quirky RPG with epic moments (and pig-throwing hijinks), here it is in one neat bundle.
