Dragon's Crown Pro Review

Side-scrolling action-RPG Dragon’s Crown, which was released for PS3 and Vita six years ago, may be widely known for its risqué character design. Obscured behind Sorceress’s ridiculously sized and autonomously swaying bosom is actually a very competent example of its genre - far better than any unfortunately superficial values might suggest. It was just a matter of time when PlayStation remaster-train arrived in Hydeland and picked up Dragon’s Crown for a ride for the new generation of players.

Dragon's Crown

Dragon’s Crown is terrific fun, with the appropriate mindset. It may or may not be distasteful, depending on one’s tolerance for cliches and objectivity, and it may or may not be fun, depending on one’s tolerance for 2-D beat ‘em ups that put the onus of combat potential on the player. However, the strength it has in aesthetic character and gameplay is mighty indeed. Dragon’s Crown doesn’t offer any much needed enrichment of its various genres, but it makes up for this by committing to its visual identity and the frenetic, empowering possibilities of its game design.
