Dragon’s Dogma is an interesting beast that appeared on Sony’s PlayStation 3 and Microsoft’s Xbox 360 a couple of years ago now. Having seen a re-work with the moniker of Dark Arisen not long after, Capcom’s giant beast of exploration, dragon hunting, ogre slaying, and chimera tracking now makes its first appearance on the realm of PC.
Before getting into the wide open spaces and freedom of exploration, things start off on a much smaller scale with players running through a tutorial dungeon with a pre-made hero. Immediately the game shows off its Dark Souls-like vibe by making even that introduction, when you’re still scrambling to get used to the controls, something of a challenge. Once the introduction has run its course players will then get to create their own character and the game takes off in full. It’s worth putting time into creating an avatar you can get along with, because you’re going to be spending a lot of time with them, but then if you end up really not liking an element of your character you can pay to have it changed later on.
