This week’s Review Revisited is one of my favorite games over the past few years, Dragon’s Crown! This game was released on both the PS3 and the Vita at the same time in late 2013. The game was an awesome sidescrolling action/RPG, which is not something you see much of nowadays. It took the gameplay from Golden Axe and made it shine with RPG elements thrown in the mix.
Dragon’s Crown is a multiplayer hack and slash beat ’em up game with breathtaking visual style, a design built around cooperative play and epic boss fights, and the ability to discover a new adventure in every play session. With Dragon’s Crown, developer Vanillaware deftly marries stunning hand-drawn and animated art work with deep, action-packed hardcore gameplay. Dragon’s Crown allows up to four players to team up online to clear out monster-ridden dungeons, discover precious treasure, and destroy awe-inspiring bosses. Its unique, highly replayable design means that every time players can boot up and log on, they can expect a different experience and hours upon hours of satisfying adventuring. Unparalleled in their unique style, developer Vanillaware painstakingly hand-paints every detail, be it a blade of grass or the scales on the game’s impressive dragons. The game becomes a lush, vibrant storybook come to life when everything starts to animate in gorgeous full HD.
There have been some rumors about Dragon’s Crown, Vanillaware’s popular title that was due for release on the PS3 and Vita in “Spring”. There should be an official update on the title any day but it looks like that it will at the very least, miss its Spring launch window.
