Dragon’s Dogma 2 Review: Exploring the Mythical Realm

Published Date: March 20

Dragon’s Dogma 2 is finally available after 12 years since the initial release of the game. Two generations of consoles after the first game’s release. Skyrim was re-released approximately 27 times and the landscape of media is a lot more about franchises and IP hoarding. It’s not surprising to start Dragon’s Dogma 2 up and see that the main screen isn’t eager to tell the player that this game is an update. It makes sense, as what’s in store upon entering the expansive world of obviously more than a simple sequel to what came before.

I honestly can’t stop thinking about the positive things to say about Dragon’s Dogma 2. It’s stunning to look at, but filled with hidden caves, encounters, secrets and tales only you can be able to tell that it’s almost crazy that there’s even a story to tell at all. For a single instance – which is a minor spoiler, so don’t read the next section if it worries you I was at the center of an battle against a cyclops, when it brutally destroyed my walkway that was trying to traverse. Without a alternative to cross I attempted to take the sting out of it by shoving it into the space. The reality was that it fell, tripped and slid onto the opposite edge of the canyon which resulted in a bridge constructed entirely of cyclops that you can traverse. Amazingly cool in almost every aspect.

The world is brimming with things similar to this, both large and small, and they seep into the design of the quest too. NPCs will approach you and ask you to assist however, while some of them are rude and should be ignored until you are ready to do they want to, some have some kind of time limit as a result of someone being in danger. This is the way to go since time is a real thing and rushing off to cook for three hours delicious fish dishes when your life is in danger is just rude We’re thinking of your actions, Link. The quests usually provide details on what you have to accomplish, as well as an approximate area that you have to enter, then simply let you work it out from there. I had to walk the trail of a lot of petals on one quest to locate a person that was missing, and it was a blast.

There’s not much speedy traveling on offer in Dragon’s Dogma 2 by design. Sure, you can travel on oxcarts that take you to specific locations and also you can travel by using a rare item called ferry stones to a similar location, but for the majority of the time all you and your companion Pawns will be working out. It’s an intimidating prospect you compare it to other games, however every excursion this one will be unique. Perhaps this time, a complete dragon will show up, or maybe you’ll see two ogres and a cyclops fighting until the end of time and want to be involved. It would be impolite to just be a spectator – perhaps you’ll even die and feel sad, because nobody will know when the game was saved at the day. These things makes the universe of Dragon’s Dogma 2 feel truly alive and it’s an absolute pleasure to live in.

You’ll still have the same assortment of fantastic monsters to take on. The majority of them come with variants that you’ll encounter, while bosses remain huge objects that you can climb onto and poke. Each class has the ability to get them out in a variety of ways. The fact that you can choose four different vocations for your starting point is an excellent idea since it was the case that archer and thief were a single class. I’m not sure if each of these classes were able to have a strict upgrade vocation like the mage and the fighter have.

New hybrid options can be a great deal of fun. They make the Magick Archer the only returning hybrid class, however it is more enjoyable with a much greater concentration on different types of arrows as well as the ability to heal at a long distances. The Mystic Spearhand lets you spin around like beyblades (so is the thieves but horizontally) and also be capable of teleporting. The Trickster makes use of an incense censor and create a clone to do many difficult things. Then there’s the Warfarer which has access to all the things every day however, has lower numbers. In the first game the game, your stats were based on your vocation when you grew in rank to the next level, and it was a nightmare to max-out a build. Now, you can alter your base stats when you switch between vocations and it’s much more enjoyable. Combat is enjoyable regardless of the class you’re playing in each one of them demands something different from the one you are currently playing.

Fighting isn’t the only thing you’ll do here. Apart from exploring and fighting, you’ll also need to take part in a time of snooping around as well as some serious political intrigue investigation, as well as helping others with things such as taking care of a house. The Dragon’s Dogma 2 wants you to believe it’s alive and as the non-story NPCs have to contend with this environment is a place where you are able to influence the story and the narrative itself do well in creating a feeling of being completely immersed.


On PC The game appears amazing and runs flawlessly and, to be honest it’s what you’d expect given an RTX 3080. Each area of the terrain is beautiful, but also simple to recognize from the rest. In spite of its dimensions, you’ll soon understand how to navigate the terrain with the help of unique paths and other features that are worth taking the time to explore. The decision to cut out any speedy routes makes sense after you look at how great the entire area looks.

We’ve also been able enjoy on the PS5 version. For consoles, Dragon’s Dogma 2 comes with an unlocked frame rate as well as there are no frame rates as well as performance settings. It could be a nightmare but if you can avoid one bizarre instance that involved serious skipping frames,, it was able to maintain a steady 30 frames per second – the presence of an VRR capable TV can assist in ironing out any more problems on this front. There were, however, a lot of bugs in the console version, including the sudden loss of your Pawns during the worst times. Reloading the last save you made will see them return, however it can take the luster off an otherwise fantastic experience.


Dragon’s Dogma 2 a soaring success of a game which requires you to simply take your time and explore everything that you could possibly see. It’s always a challenge to stay on your path by a brand new cave, an unplanned quest and a chest one of your Pawns discovered, random fights and that’s all part of the fun. I absolutely love this game even though it has elements that I believe some players will consider too difficult It’s a great game.
