Gamepro.de: 79%

Graphics:
ps3 7/10 xbox 360 6/10
+ harmonic world, character models
- flickering shadows, sloppy textures, few details
PS3 version is sharper, intense colors. 360 version more stable though

Sound:
8/10
+ good soundtrack, good soundeffects
- no german synchronisation

pros&cons
+ good combatsystem, boss-fights, pawn-system
- A.I. problems, camera, big distances, no multiplayer
Overall:
Solid RPG with innovative pawn-system but poor tech (they mention it especially for 360)

Well I thought the 360 version looked great on the demo plus they will probably release a patch or two to fix some of the flickering and popping of textures.

Haha they rate a "Con" as no multiplayer, seeing as I'm sure that factored into their score. Can't take these big name companies serious for reviews anymore, but that's why the actual gaming community is all the information you need as far as if a game is decent enough and YouTube :woop:

Totally psyched about this game none the less. The next best thing to Monster Hunter mmmmm.

Another review in:
Game Informer 8.5

Summary:

Concept
Give players an open world, fill it with monsters, and provide their heroes with the tools to dominate.

Graphics
Gransys is a well-realized world, filled with beautiful scenery and imposing monsters.

Sound
If thereís a shy pawn out there, I never met him. AI companions fill the silence with their every observation, however mundane.

Playability
Combat is intensely satisfying, with an impressive amount of class-based attacks and skills.

Entertainment
Dragonís Dogma blends the best from open-world RPGs and action games without feeling like a diluted wannabe.

Am I playing a different game than everybody else? D: The footage I've seen and the demo I played was a very choppy hack n' slash with an awkward HUD and controls, sloppy combat, PS2/Xbox quality graphics and sound effects, clumsy inventory management, etc... It feels like I'm playing an early 6th gen action game. The level design is the only thing I honestly enjoyed out of the demo.

Sound:
8/10
+ good soundtrack, good soundeffects
- no german synchronisation ** It's not in German, so what. This only matters to non english reading Germans


pros&cons
+ good combatsystem, boss-fights, pawn-system
- A.I. problems, camera, big distances, no multiplayer)
**A bit vague here on the cons and since when is no multiplayer a bad thing in an RPG.

Regardless of the score, the review itself is crap. Play the demo yourself and see if you like it or not.

They can review all they want, but I loved the demo. I'll be getting it for sure, probably not day one, but eventually.

Overall:
Solid RPG with innovative pawn-system but poor tech (they mention it especially for 360)
* Only reason this is a problem is "Germany Bans the Xbox 360" (http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/117047-Germany-Bans-the-Xbox-360). "A courtroom loss means Microsoft can no longer sell the Xbox 360 in Germany." So why spend time and resources IF you cant make money in that region?

** Realy??? Its an open world ActionAdventure RPG. WTF do you want? A small island where you can run around it in 5 mins?

*** I agree to a degree. I wish it were "true" multiplayer/co-op. But then Again unless they release a non-Japan Only Monster Hunter I dont think we'll see an RPG from Capcom with MP/Co-op

The demo even says "This is a game still in development" in the opening screen. Check some of the live feeds out on youtube and see the difference.
