    Review - Dragon's Crown

    Dragon's Crown doesn't believe in physics or biology, but that doesn't make it any less fun. Find out what to expect from Vanillaware's brawler/RPG hybrid in RPGamer's official review.

    Given the game's art design, that should be OVER hyped. :P

    Game sold well in Japan. Around 175k units on Vita/PS3 combined. I'm happy for VW.

    I've got it preordered looking forward to playing it.
    What I have seen and done to achieve my position defies belief. What I am capable of and will be party to in order to retain it would chill your soul.

    At $50 and no cross buy, i think i'll pass for now. I wasn't that fond of Odin Sphere back on the ps2 so i'm not sure i will love this game. Besides it releases the same day as Xilia, which is a higher priority for me.

    It's nothing like Odin Sphere, not even remotely. It also runs infinitely better. No lag or framerate issues or anything like that.

    This game seems a lot better than I expected. Apparently it's got some good length and a plethora of deep RPG elements. It's also scoring very well on Metacritic (sorry, gotta keep track of this stuff with the fantasy pool game).

    It's good to hear that Vanillaware has put out a solid game. I'm disappointed that the story is thin, but I enjoyed Oboromuramasa, despite it's minimal story. So, possibly a delayed purchase for me.

    I have to thank you two for not goosestepping with other gaming "journalists," devolving this review into some manufactured controversy over the state of female identity in video game development, screaming "misogyny" for the sake of garnering more page views. It's good to know some reviewers actually want to report on the game, not conflate their ideologies with the entirety of a particular game's quality.

    Just had to get that off my biologically unproportioned chest. The game looks great, but I echo Ryu's concerns over the price tag. Was not expecting to see it going for $50.

    I will be getting this somewhat soon. Tales of Xillia and Killer is Dead take priority for me but I am looking forward to this.

    Meh this is not one for me.. I am not a fan of the art style or gameplay type. So ultimately this would not be a positive experience for me as a result.

    Or people can have a different reaction to the art. Don't come here and trash other sites whose reviews were endorsed by Atlus. That's pathetic.

    We bring up a lot of the same points anyways. There are some serious issues with some of the NPC designs. It's not really the playable characters that are the biggest problem, it's the NPCs during mid-dungeon cutscenes that are the most offensive. And some of them are pretty damn offensive. Three stand out in my mind as being particularly troublesome - the mermaid that shows a large amount of butt cleavage, the "spirit lady" who's effectively naked and wrapped in translucent sheets, and worst of all, the "warrior monk" who sits leaning against a wall with her legs spread wide apart.

    It's a perfectly legitimate complaint that's actually a lot worse than the original controversy made it out to be, and it's obviously going to be a bigger deal to some people than to others. I'm not easily offended, but some of this stuff was way over the top and completely unnecessary and unwarranted.

    Looks suuuper sexy. I loved Odin Sphere, and despite this being very different, Vanillaware has nailed it before and appears to have done so here. I'll buy.
