Dragon Marked for Death Reviews
Dragon Marked for Death captivates with its agile and fast-paced 2D action. Completing missions in control of six different heroes is exciting and mastering their skills and peculiarities is one of the highlights of the title. The adventure can be explored alone, but it is in multiplayer that the potential is best explored: players need to coordinate their movements to be able to win, and it is fun when the strategies work. Even so, the game has some notable limitations, such as low-impact RPG aspects, uninspired level design and recycled content, characteristics that can bring a sense of repetition. In the end, Dragon Marked for Death is a reasonable experience, but it is necessary to ignore its problems in order to better enjoy it.

This is a type of game that, while experimental for the studio, really represents missed opportunities. Ranging from the extremely limited move set of the characters, lack of any new skills/moves, and a bit too much repetition, it leaves a strong feeling of how much better it could be. A heavy reliance on multiplayer likely dooms this, as the online population is relatively small, and the match-making is atrocious. Sad, as the graphics are great, and it could have been really fun with even a little bit more depth.
Dragon Marked for Death is a game that I'm sure many people will have an easier time getting into now, than if they had attempted to at launch. It's in a much more playable state, and is undoubtedly all the better for it.
Definitely keep Dragon Marked for Death on your radar if you’d like a game to play with friends that’s outside the norm.
Dragon Marked for Death is one of the most rewarding sidescrolling games I have played ever, and it’s easily recommended due to its immense polish.
To the average gamer, the game’s repetitive nature in the face of its overall lack of multiplayer alternatives will spell anathema.
Dragon Marked for Death is a decent Action-Platformer that is held back by baffling design choices, but aims to please fans of the genre, especially fans of Mega Man Zero.
Despite being in development for eight or more years, Dragon Marked for Death could have actually used more time in the oven. I'm sure there is a great game buried somewhere in there but between its lack of balance, less-than-ideal controls, boring levels, and unfortunate co-op requirements, the end product isn't nearly up to the level of the rest of Inti Creates's catalog.
You may not be blown away by the visual experience of the game, but its a fun experience to play solo or with friends. Especially for fans of the Mega Man Zero series this is a must have addition to your library. Highly recommend this title!
While it isn't without its problems, Dragon Marked for Death embodies the best parts of the multiplayer facet of the side-scrolling 2D action RPG community. Anyone who enjoys the genre and has Nintendo Online would be remiss to not give this game a try.
Dragon Marked for Death is a fantastic experience when played with friends - but, only when played with friends. The lack of balance absolutely buries the experience, making single player a horribly flawed one.
While I love the moment to moment action, the pacing can still get downright glacial at times. If you’re hoping for an RPG experience, you’ll be rather let down. As far as action platformers go, however, Dragon Marked For Death is a ripping good time.
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!
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.
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.
Dragon Marked for Death is a hot new Switch exclusive that combines Mega Man X, Castlevania, and the difficulty of Monster Hunter into one fun little game.
Dragon Marked for Death is a strong action RPG held back by a few strange design decisions.
Inti Creates' new Nintendo Switch exclusive Dragon Marked For Death is a beautiful pixelated multiplayer action-RPG, but solo players need not apply.
While I think Dragon Marked for Death isn’t balanced very well for a single player game, I think the online play more than makes up for that. There is a ton of quest variety, the levels have tons of depth and the game is just simply a blast to play with a friend. I’m not even a big fan of multiplayer games like this, and if I had more time I’d still be playing right now. I think the amount of quests here and replay value more than justify the inexpensive entry price, and hack and slash fans should grab a friend and be all over this one.
