Video Xbox 360 PS3

Almost a year after the release of Dragon's Dogma, Capcom gives us Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, which includes the original game and its brand new extension. This new edition also comes with a HD texture pack, but it's not that obvious to see the difference honestly (old versus new). The main interest lies obviously in Bitterblack, the new hostile environment which is made available very early in the adventure - should you be a newcomer. Beware though, as this is not a place you want to go to unless you reach a certain level - as proven in our last video.

Finished it today on Xbox 360. Original game is great and I love it, but this add-on is disappointing. It's basically a big dungeon with many copy & pasted rooms + enemies (most of them using the same animations and base models of the regular mobs/bosses). The rest are just rescaled and reskinned enemy types.
I counted 3 brand new mob types and 3 brand new boss types. Not that much if you ask me. New armor and weapons are only available via excessive grinding (including finding the items + farming the rift-currency for examining them). The boss wasn't impressive (on hard mode he has a second form which is harder than the defeating the offline-Ur Dragon though).

The HD textures...I haven't noticed a difference, tbh.

Story is almost non existent. There is one but the add-on only has like 2 little longer cutscenes at the end. The rest are just ghost voices from dead bodies you can hear when you passed them.

They replaced the awesome main menu theme from the original game :(

Dragon forged weapons now have two more upgrade levels (silver and gold level emblem).


In conclusion: Dark Arisen is only avialable if you buy Dragons Dogma twice actually. And for THAT I really I expected muuuch more content (maybe a new small island or so). I can't recommend Dark Arisen for owners of DD.

But for everyone who missed Dragons Dogma: buy it!

Because there is no Hd texture.
On 360 they couldnt fit proper texture on disc 1 along with the game so disc 2 had JP voices and the textures for you to install. Thats why on PS3 with help of BluRay it was already there, they didnt improve anything visually...same old visuals.

Well then why did they promote the fact that HD textures were included in this edition, as opposed to the first one? Unless they didn't and that's just something the journalists misinterpreted.

The HD textures are on the second "install" disc, along with the japanese voices. I installed the Textures but i couldn't see a difference.

Thats what I wrote, like I said, they removed the textures with the game on disc 1 since it didnt have enough space on it.
