Synopsis and Features
After getting your heart stolen by an ancient dragon, you are reborn as Arisen. As soon as you open your eyes you discover you are not the same as you were before. You realize that you can understand the dragon’s language and that you are ready to do anything and everything to get your heart back. Aiding in your cause are humanoids known as pawns. You can give them commands, making the pawns do whatever you want them to do. With their help you are hell-bent on taking down the dragon. The only question is can you do it in time?
Developed and published by Capcom, Dragon's Dogma blends in elements of puzzle-solving and combat with finesse. You begin your single-player campaign by selecting a class. There is a wide variety of classes available to choose from such as Fighter, Warrior, Strider, Ranger, Assassin, Mage, Sorcerer and Magic Archer, Mystic Knight. You have to choose your class very carefully as each class has unique powers. Even the gameplay elements change significantly for each class, giving the game tremendous replay value.
Customization finds a new meaning in Dragon’s Dogma as you can not only customize your looks, but also one of your pawns'. You can add skills and buy various upgrades for the pawn, just like you can for yourself. Other than this one permanent pawn, you can also enrol 2 more pawns and dismiss them according to your objectives. The additional customization options give you more freedom than any other games in this genre.
The one thing you have to constantly keep under notice is your rift points. These are very essential if you are thinking of hiring powerful pawns. Travelling with pawns is interesting as they keep asking you questions and are very curious. The constant chatter between them keeps you entertained throughout the game.
