Dragon's Crown Pro does not introduce many changes to the gameplay but there was not much to improve anyway. It's still one of the best fantasy beat 'em ups on the market.

A beautiful, chaotic adventure, Dragon's Crown Pro is worth a go if you've never played the original.

Dragon's Crown Pro is the definitive version of the game, especially if you have a PlayStation 4 Pro and a 4K supported display. The developers have done an outstanding job, boosting the visuals fidelity from the original release, and including the orchestrated version of the soundtrack. I have already spent dozens of hours on the initial release and considering I was able to use my save file from the PS Vita; I see myself once again spending a crazy amount of hours chasing high-end loot. It is a shame that no new skins for the classes have been released or included and the high price tag may scare some players from double dipping.

Atlus's remake of the PS3 classic, Dragon's Crown Pro brings the game to the modern day with several enhancements. The updated visuals provide a much-needed bump in the image quality. While the remastered music keeps the same elements of the original but adds it's own flair. While this is only Atlus's second remastered title on the PS4, it shows how much love and dedication they've put into it. A favorite from the PS3 days, now veterans and newcomers will be able to enjoy it once again; while still being able to play with existing PS3 and PS Vita gamers.

While Dragon's Crown remains the most refined and candid of Vanillaware's neo brawlers, it's absent of the range of improvements and adjustments that marked Odin Sphere Leifthrasir's transition to modern hardware. Dragon's Crown Pro is Dragon's Crown on the PlayStation 4 and it has no interest in being anything else.

For good and for bad, this is the same Dragon's Crown you fell in love with (or not) all those years ago- adjust your expectations accordingly, and you'll know if this is for you.

Dragon's Crown Pro is the same, great, hack 'n' slash played years ago. 4K resolution, new soundtrack and great gameplay take the game to a higher level.

As good as Dragon's Crown Pro may be, there are no significant additions and with only the soundtrack and visuals receiving polish there's no point to upgrade to this version if you still have an original copy of Dragon's Crown. But if you missed out on Dragon's Crown five years ago, Pro is a perfect excuse to experience it.

Dragon's Crown Pro easily captures the feel of an arcade-style beat-em up, despite some nagging issues of repetition. Still, it is a fun game that will be a pleasure to play through in the right circumstances.

Dragon's Crown Pro is filled with endlessly captivating art, but those same visuals also trip up its deep, intricate action (and may be a bit too risqué for some players' tastes).

This is the definitive version of Dragon's Crown, but do yourself a favor and wait for it to go on sale. Your wallet will thank you.

Dragon's Crown Pro is an entertaining RPG when played solo or with friends. With so many remasters available on current generation consoles, its production values are reminiscent of a time when developers made games and not ever evolving live services. It's still a ton of fun to play, even five years later.

Dragon's Crown Pro should be considered as a remaster. However, it features 4K graphics for PS4 Pro owners and a new soundtrack. Otherwise, it's the same title we saw in 2013 for PS3 and PS Vita. Like any remaster, it's worth if you have not played it until now. In this case it's even worthier because it will hardly age badly with this unique and beautiful artistic style.

If you've already played Dragon's Crown to exhaustion on PlayStation 3 or PlayStation Vita, you won't find anything here that'll get your juices flowing. For those who have not yet played Dragon's Crown though, it's the perfect way to enjoy what is destined to become a cult classic.

Dragon's Crown is still one of the best beat 'em up games, even after almost 5 years. The Pro version didn't introduce anything new but also didn't make anything worse.

Dragon's Crown Pro is a direct port of a really wonderful game, and it's still the most sublime, brilliant fun, and it only gets better the more people you share it with.

Dragon's Crown Pro is still a great game and it holds up well even on the current generation consoles thanks in part to the 4K upgrade, but the lack of new gameplay features makes it feel like a rather lackluster re-release. If you have played the original game already, there is honestly no need to get this one, but if you are a fan of Vanillaware, this is an easy recommendation.

Prepare to be hooked all over again in this Vanillaware classic that might not have the story to match the developer's other top game, Odin Sphere, but finds a way to combine genres and ensure multiplayer becomes something players will actively want to make use of to get the most satisfaction out of Dragon's Crown Pro. Highly recommended to anyone with a passing interest in beat 'em ups, but there is no denying that there is mild disappointment at the absence of new gameplay content, rendering it a hard sell to those that have beaten the game before. Don't like beat' em ups, though? Better off to pass, as the tedium does have a tendency to rear its ugly head before long, and that isn't something even Dragon's Crown can evolve the genre from.

Dragon's Crown Pro is just as fun on PlayStation 4 as it was on PS3 and Vita. The improved visuals and orchestral soundtrack make this one the definitive version, so if you're already a fan of it, or if you're up for playing a fantasy adventure beat ‘em up RPG, then this one is exactly what you needed.
