Im not a hardcore rpg fan but i recently played dragon age inquisition and the witcher 3 and i love it. Now i want to play another rpg, i was searching on the internet and found this game, does it worth the money? If not, what would you recommend? It's like it was implemented by people who'd read about RPGs, rather than actually having played any.
It's this really weird mix. They have an amazing combat engine and a world that provides an excellent sense of exploration and wonder, but the NPCs are metaphorical pencil sketches, not very interesting, quests just randomly come and go as you progress in the story, the inhabited areas are very sparsely populated, the main story's pretty thin interesting, mind, but thinand the "relationship" system is utter nonsense.
After Witcher 3, if you're looking for anything vaguely similar, Dragon's Dogma will be an enormous disappointment. If, instead, you buy it as a fantasy combat simulatorand don't worry too much about the story, it has serious legs. I got a little over hours out of it.

It's probably not as good as Dark Souls in that regard I only played that a little bitin that the success of your attacks is slanted more strongly toward the s attached to your characters than it is to your dexterity and skill level, but it's vastly better than most RPGs, definitely including the Witcher series. You have a main character and a 'pawn', which you create and control; you're sort of a two-person party to begin with.
Then you go online, and can hire other people's pawns to adventure with you. This is free if you get someone at your level or lower; you only have to pay if you hire someone higher level. Likewise, unless you opt out, your pawn can be hired by others.
They can be out adventuring with other people while they're with you, and when you next rest, they'll "return" from their expeditions, bringing Rift Crystals a different form of currency generated by the trip and possibly items from the player if they really liked your pawn.
There's a great deal of complexity in the pawn AI system, where pawns come up with inclinations based on what they see you doing, and by a process of answering questions that the pawn asks you, back in an inn. Dragon dogma reddit can buy potions that will let you manipulate these behaviors as well, so that you can tune your pawn to fight in a particular way.
Others will look at its inclinations when hiring, as you will when hiring theirs, and you'll be trying to assemble a combination of inclinations, classes, and powers that work well as a team. The equipment system is pretty complex, too, and as you get farther into the game, particularly into the expansion, you'll need to understand it quite well to get into the really tough content in the Bitterblack Isle expansion. You won't even go there on your first game, it's way too tough until you've won the main game at least once, and preferably twice.
Won twice? When you finish, you can start over from the beginning, keeping everything except a few plot-related items.
Everything in the world resets back to Day 1. It's just like starting again, but with a vastly stronger character. After you've won probably twice, then you're about ready to start tackling Bitterblack Isle, which IMO is where the game really starts to shine. The expansion pretty much gives up on the RPG idea, which the game was never good at anyway.
BB Isle is a labyrinth of weirdness, with many combat areas that respawn once a week or so, so you can keep revisiting and fighting different variations of monsters. This is where Dragon's Dogma excels, so that's what they focus on, mostly pure combat, with some exploration mixed in, pretty much giving up on the story elements altogether.
In the high end, it becomes almost a study sim. I spent a very great deal of time reading the excellent wiki. Understanding how the equipment works and the intricacies of the combat system is pretty involved. Without the wiki, I don't think I would have enjoyed it nearly as much.
There's just so much to know, I can't imagine one person being able to assemble all that knowledge in a reasonable amount of time. Overall, I enjoyed this game very, very much. Just, don't expect standard RPG fare. Oh, as a followup: this game is tough when you start.
It took me about 15 hours before I really felt like I had my feet under me.
Be ready to run away a lot, you'll need to. You will eventually transform into an asskicker of cosmic power, but you start out with a stick and a frown.
It's almost a really good game imo. The thing that turned me off about it was that the combat was by no means difficult, but the enemies all have crazy amounts of HP, so it became extremely tiresome.

It has great systems, great controls, sweet attacks and spells, but it really breaks the immersion when you blast a wolf like 7 times with a giant fireball before it dies. Pros: awesome combat system Lots of character customization Fulfilling dungeons Great side quests Tons of replay value. If you can spare the money you should give it a try! I really liked Dragon's Dogmabut I didn't really put too many hours into it the same way I did games from The Elder Scrolls series due to being restricted to one save slot instead of having it be per-character.
You can eventually teach your character every skill from every class, but it kinda kills roleplay potential especially the creating people part by having such an odd restriction. One of the big features is the Pawn system, where you create a second character who's controlled by the AI and dragon dogma reddit try to behave the way you do--problematic if you're a close-ranged fighter and you create a mage, but you can sit down and have a chat with them to somewhat steer their behaviors around. You only get one Main Pawn of your own but you can take two that other people have built, with the caveat of being unable to alter their behaviors.
There's also a system where you can grab enemies, either to hold them in place for your allies to stab in the gut or they'll do the same for you so you can land the critical blowas well as allowing you to cling to giant enemies and attack their weak points or just deal damage while they try to evade your team. How you build your character as well as what class they're in determines climbing effectiveness and speed.
There are hybrid classes that can use their own spells too but I just stuck with what I knew best with regular weapons.
I haven't played anything Witcher or Dragon Age yet, but I want to say that your hero is a silent protagonist and you're able to at least pick responses that aren't voiced, so that too might take away from getting into the character you make. You don't have an actual party apart from your Main Pawn at all times and the two others you borrow, and there is a romance system too though nothing really happens with it and it's entirely possible that someone completely unintended on your part ends up being chosen as your beloved.
I think it'd be a pretty good pick. I went in with pretty high expectations due to going years without being able to play it and it only fell a little bit short. Edit: Given this is tagged PS4, I'm not sure how much of a restriction it'd be to having one save slot as opposed to PC, but it may not be that impactful for you either way. Pacing in the game is just terrible.
No reasonable fast travel system means wandering back and forth over the same mountain pass like 20 times - fighting the exact same spawns in the exact same place over and over again. And omfg the harpies in said mountain pass are soooooo annoying Dragon dogma reddit the story is just bad.
Particularly for those with western sensibilities. I quit after the first "ending" becaue the turn the game takes is so bland and boring never ending dungeon type thing. If you can get it for super cheap, give it a go for the combat system. Climbing mechanic and magic are quite well done - especially for a game that is really an action RPG at its heart.
