Dragon's Crown

First Impression's of Dragon's Crown for PS3 (also available on the PS Vita)

--DISCLAIMER: I know a lot of people have strong feelings about this game but I am of the mindset that you should not judge a book by its cover.--



Dragon's Crown is a new game from Vanillaware, a game developer out of Japan.  Their previous works that people are most familiar with is Odin's Sphere and Murmasa: The Demon Blade.  I really like the looks of their game's.  They look like paintings and Dragon's Crown is no exception.  After the first few hours of the game one thing is obvious, it plays a lot like Dungeons and Dragon's Shadow Over Mystara.  After doing a little research, George Kamitani the director of this game, worked on that game and this game feels like a natural extension of that.  There six character classes to choose from and each class has different strengths and weaknesses and are designed for different types of players.  So if you have played the Dungeons and Dragons game you should already have a pretty good idea of how the gameplay is and what type of player would best suit you.

I mentioned before how I love the artwork that Vanillaware does with its games.  I know that there is some fan service in this game and that certain publications and websites have focused on certain aspects of this.  I can understand why women would be upset and not want to give this game a chance, however, I would say rent it first and play it before you make any decisions.  The game, as I have stated before, is like a painting.  Characters and I mean all of them have been exaggerated and it makes the game feel alive and the world more vibrant.  Still this is just my opinion, all I ask is that you give the game a chance you may actually like it.

Like always I will do a more in depth review once I get farther along in the game.  I hope you guys have a great rest of the evening.
