Let’s talk about “Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen” for PS3, a suped-up version of its third-person action RPG predecessor, which took the gaming world by storm in May 2012. This masterpiece is courtesy of Capcom, the trailblazing creator of the original game. The brains behind this reinvention are the dynamic duo of Hideaki Itsuno (with credits from Devil May Cry 4 and other hits) and Hiroyuki Kobayashi (co-creator of Resident Evil 4), who returned to sprinkle their magic again.


The allure of an expansive, mystical world teeming with mythical beings, from dragons and griffons to hydras and harpies, hooks players in from the get-go. This adventure kicks off with a dragon’s assault on the protagonist’s hometown, triggering an intricate narrative that sees the ‘Chosen One,’ who intriguingly survives having his heart ripped out by said dragon, set off on a journey to piece together the mystery behind his identity and ultimately defeat the dragon.


While the original plot remains, this version presents an extra layer of excitement with fresh adventures set on the haunted island of Bitterblack. Here, you can navigate a vast underworld, battle against 25 new enemy types, and enjoy additional quests. The game ups the ante by introducing a third skill level for characters, a treasure trove of new equipment, and improved inventory management. This upgraded edition is further enriched by incorporating minor DLCs released following the initial launch.


The adrenaline-fueled action RPG doesn’t deviate drastically from its origin. It still provides an intricate arcade combat system with various weapons and spectacular magic. A unique feature is the ability to mount our colossal foes, targeting specific body parts for strategic advantages. You can customize your hero to suit your preferred play style. To aid in your quest, the game includes other player-generated characters who offer crucial information for story quests.


Our beloved game has received a few tweaks that enhance the gameplay. These include a refined user interface, an improved fast travel system, and other enhancements that elevate the gaming experience. Crucially, these changes apply to the new adventure and the original story campaign, ensuring a consistently engaging experience.


While it doesn’t provide the typical multiplayer mode, the game brings a unique twist with particular asynchronous online challenges that encourage player participation and add an extra dimension to the gaming experience.


Powered by the MT Framework v2 engine (also used in high-profile games like Lost Planet 2, Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and Resident Evil 6), this title pushes the PS3 to its limits to deliver stunning visuals. It also has enhanced features for PC users, offering high-quality textures, support for higher resolutions, and removing FPS limitations. To sweeten the deal, previous owners of the game on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 can import their saved games to continue with their character, and they’re rewarded with 100,000 Rift Crystals, unlimited teleportation stones, and six unique clothing sets.
