I really hope Inti Creates explores more of this universe seen in Dragon Marked for Death, as I think they have a solid new IP to work on in future titles. There are snippets of DLC that go into the Dragonblood Clain, but I definitely want to see more. Now with a base, they can refine and experiment!

Dragon Marked For Death offers a fantastic co-op experience on the Switch, though singleplayer-only fans might want to temper their expectations.

Inti Creates' new Nintendo Switch exclusive Dragon Marked For Death is a beautiful pixelated multiplayer action-RPG, but solo players need not apply.

A game that gives lot of fun to the player, but the lack of a local coop and a strange business model don't work.

Dragon Marked for Death is an eye-catching action platformer that is excellent with friends but can be frustrating alone.

It already feels like a game that has potential to add a lot more depth to as well, and I hope that the online stays populated for a long time to come.

Dragon Marked for Death is a strong action RPG held back by a few strange design decisions.

Dragon Marked for Death is a frustrating experience because there are some good ideas buried behind some poor decisions.

If you can gather a team of four players and don't mind consulting a FAQ every now and then, this might be a good investment.

MEDIOCRE - On the surface Dragon Marked For Death ticked all the right boxes: beautiful sprites, colorful graphics, co-op action/adventure, RPG elements, and compelling story. After playing it became obvious the game offers a very shallow gameplay experience with repetitive combat, difficulty spikes, and bosses that just won’t die. The bottom line is that this one just isn’t all that fun to play.

Given the high standard of gameplay that Inti Creates has shown in many other titles it's released over the last several years, it's hard not to be disappointed by Dragon: Marked for Death.
