This week I have been hacking, slashing and questing my way through the lands Capcom has created for their large scale open world RPG, Dragons Dogma. Capcom have gone all out on this game, bringing in developers that had previously worked on their other major franchises such as Resident Evil, Devil May Cry and even Breath of Fire, all of which in one way or another shine through as influences on this title.
The premise of this is much like many RPGs out there, a fantasy almost “Middle-Earth” setting, with a range of Warrior, Mage and Ranger type character classes to choose from and a world to save, but its the way Capcom have gone about it that makes this game so ambitious, so lets take a closer look and see what this game has to offer, maybe well discover along the way if Capcom has managed to pull off one of the most unique RPGs of this generation.
I don’t want to spoil much of the story for this game, so other than saying that you go from living a quiet life, to someone who needs to set out on an epic journey with regards to a bloody huge dragon, I don’t want to say much else about it, but sure enough you’ll find the main plot is pretty much summed up in the first 30min of the game and the conclusion takes around 40 hours to fathom out, as is the case with a lot of RPGs.
