Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen
Top Critic Average
The PC port doesn't introduce much new and certain elements could be stronger, but Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen still shines as a uniquely enjoyable RPG.
Despite borrowing so much from so many different games Capcom's Western style role-player is still very much its own game – with plenty of interesting ideas of its own.
Like many of the Western RPGs that influenced it, Dragon's Dogma is an uneven experience, but it's one that rewards patience and perseverance, and it's a bold argument for why Japanese developers should continue making RPGs, with or without the inspiration from this side of the Pacific.
While the Nintendo Switch version might not be the ultimate way to play Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen if you’re worried about graphical quality, it does bring forth its own share of positives
It's no the best remaster out there (although it is the definitive version... on consoles), but Dragon's Dogma is still as fresh as it was in 2012. If you didn't play it then, this is the perfect time to discover one of the best action RPGs of all time.

Character customization, combat, and the weird story and brilliant end-game all make this one of my favorite action-RPG's of all time. Meanwhile, the Dark Arisen changes make the game somewhat more traversable and streamlined, turning a fun but frustrating game into something far more enjoyable. There's nothing really new here, but it's great to finally have the game on PC.
If you're looking for a game that combines elements of Skyrim, Monster Hunter, Dark Souls, and japanese RPGs, then Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen should be on your watchlist.
Capcom has done a solid job bringing a very well-made RPG over to the current generation.
