In Dragon's Dogma 2, you venture without direction. More games should do this Game review

The long-awaited sequel to Dragon's Dogma looks to be an adventure game like many of them. But if you look closely, you'll see that the steering is largely missing. This makes the adventure more fun.

I'm walking around the village, looking for a man carrying a package. As I was about to enter a promising house, she approached me. A little man asking me for help, not begging me. His brother went into the wilderness and did not return. There's something wrong there! Can't I, as a true adventurer, help him? His brother can't hold on for long.

Of course I say. I write the task down on my very long to-do list and continue on my merry way. I'm looking for a man with a package. After many wanderings and dozens of quests, I finally returned to the village, ready to heroically rescue my brother. But guess what? That brother, he's dead. The wilderness swallowed him up. The hero who would save him did not come. I did not come.

What should you do?

This scenario is Dragon's Dogma 2 in a nutshell: a role-playing game that can't wait for you. life goes on. Death too. Are you too busy to save someone? Then he can just die. Too lazy to properly check the area around your campsite? Don't be surprised if you are suddenly attacked. On the way to that guy carrying a package? There is a high probability that you will be distracted by monsters, people, or magic in the meantime. A more adventurous game than what you're used to from other games.

This philosophy is also reflected in the volumes. In many modern open world games, you run from icon to icon. “Secret” treasures are carefully marked, often with a dotted line to indicate the best route. Dragon's Dogma 2 brings you even less close. Find out for yourself, adventure will come your way. Even though I myself…

Are you really alone?

No, not really. Because it's you Starch , the Chosen One, who must slay the dragon. If Starch can you pawns, Hire pawns. These are warriors who help you in many battles, but are also useful in other ways. If one of these pawns knows who you're looking for, they'll be happy to direct you to them. If he knows how to defeat this difficult monster, he offers advice. You can even Pawns Borrow from other players who may have had different experiences than you. They even talk about their master. That he only wants women on his team, for example. Still a bit suspicious.

Will it last long?

It's a huge world that you discover largely on foot. You spend dozens of hours before you understand an important part. The combat system remains fun, partly because you can choose from all kinds of styles. Do you keep your distance with a bow and arrow, or do you run at everything with a big sword? Do you love using magic but would you rather be quick and agile with daggers? it's your choice.

You can easily switch between different styles, so you'll always find an option you like. Also fun: you can climb larger monsters to eliminate them more efficiently. The giant has tough skin, but its huge eyes make it an easy target. At least if you can reach it…
