Capcom’s first foray in to the open world role playing genre comes in the form of fantasy-based Dragon’s Dogma. Created by developers responsible for Resident Evil 4 and Devil May Cry 4, this promises to offer a rich, living and breathing world as players create their own unique characters and team up to hunt a mysterious dragon.

If you are a character creation junkie then you are going to be in heaven. You can create anything from a lithe Amazon to a bent old crone, or a young bobble headed kid to an Arnold Schwarzenegger lookalike, the aim is for realistic characters. So no crazy skin colours, but you can have David Bowie styled eyes, or be blinded in one eye (or both). There are literally layers within layers.

The in-depth and intuitive combat system ensures that the quests you encounter are always action-packed and fun to play. Various mythical beasts are ripe for the slaying in Dragon’s Dogma, including a Chimera - a strange creature with a lion’s head and body, a snake-headed tail and a random goat’s head on its spine. Different strategies must be used to overcome each heart-pounding battle.

It’s a graphically attractive affair with a story with all the action, intrigue and excitement that fantasy fans love.
