Story

Swords, Dungeons, Sorcery, and Dragons....

Enjoy the ultimate gamemaster-driven fantasy on your PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita!

"Dragon's Crown" is an action fantasy RPG in the vein of "Princess Crown" and "Odin Sphere", married with gamemaster-style storytelling as seen in "Etrian Odyssey". With a strong focus on high-fantasy, a new era of adventure now begins."

"The paths that lead people to this land are manifold and varied, but they share a single goal. Now you have journeyed here to brave the dangerous, monster-ridden dungeons. Daring adventurers from far and wide have come to face the labyrinths on the outskirts of town, and you are joining their ranks. You must first gather a strong party. No one adventurer will be able to overcome these trials alone. Let us begin your journey... I wish you good luck."

Characters

Fighter

Experts in battle, outfitted with full-plate armor and a sturdy shield. Boasting the stoutest defence of all classes, their shields can protect all allies in the nearby area. Their one-handed weapons have short reach, but the can swing them quickly, allowing them to make short work of nearby foes.

Amazon

Dauntless warriors who know no fear as they effortlessly wield their two-handed weapons. Their massive equipment delivers vicious blows that deal lethal damage to multiple foes at once. Lightly armored, they are agile fighters who rely on punishing kicks when unarmed.

Wizard

Male magicians who have a wealth of magic at their beck and call. Unable to fend off monsters with strength, they instead rely on their spells, and are vital assets for any adventure.

Elf

A long-lived forest race who are often much older then they appear to human eyes. While slight of body, they are deadly masters of the bow and arrow, using their superior athleticism to fight nimbly and fearlessly from a distance.

Dwarf

Stocky fighters whose muscular frames permit them to wield a weapon in each hand. Their strength lets them pick up and throw anything in sight, even heavy foes. Throwing enemies lets them damage multiple foes with one fling laying waste to an entire horde of adversaries.

Sorceress

Bewitching women with knowledge of dark magic. They are weak of body, but the great knowledge they wield of the arcane arts cannot be ignored. Sorceresses can create delicious food, control skeletons, and turn foes into harmless frogs. A jack-of-all-trades support class, they can provide aid to their friends in countless ways.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dragon's Crown, Pretty, Simple, Fun Dragon's Crown is an interesting mix. The graphics on Vita look pretty and vibrant, and the art style helps here, everything has a vaguely painted look to it. That said, some people will be put off by some of the character art, specifically female depictions. It is a simple brawler-style RPG that is a bit of a throwback to older style games. Despite having a leveling mechanic, heavy RPG fans may be put off due to the lack of control over stats and leveling. Mostly you will be doing this through collecting new weapons and gear. The game isn't all that long, but you may find yourself going through the same levels over and over again near the end if you are getting stuck. If you like old-style Fantasy Brawlers, you will love this title, and it is a good pick for almost any Vita owner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A game to make Vita proud I've never had much love for the side scrolling action games of the past, but Dragon's Crown really won me over. The game is visually stunning, if a little over the top sexist here and there. The combat is much smoother than I thought it would be, and I didn't find myself getting cheap shotted like games of previous generations often did. The game isn't overly long, but offers substantial replay both with the various classes, which all feel different, and with game modes that unlock after the story line is "complete". The multiplayer also seemed to run smooth and added some fun to the game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun and Addicting Pretty much got a Vita just for this game since the PS3 is soon to be obsolete and it was definitely worth it. The graphics as a whole are beautiful and stunning and make one of the most attractive and visually unique games I've played in a long time. The voices and soundtrack are great, with the option of either English or Japanese voices if one or the other don't appeal to you for either character. The storyteller is always English and it isn't until a certain point you can buy a different voice, that corresponds to the character you choose. There is some cheap DLC though that unlocks them for you, but whatever, the default is good enough, not like you'll too much attention to it after your initial run through. Reason I docked off some points in Sound was because; while the soundtrack is pretty solid to great for it's themes, there's also a very limited number of total tracks. The gameplay is where this game really shines though; the combat is fun, engrossing and entertaining no matter which character you choose. All six play quite differently, so choosing one that suits your style and party's needs -if your have some friends lined up to play this with- should be done carefully, as having something like three elves and a wizard will spell some tough times ahead for your party. It'll still be doable, just expect a lot of deaths and frustrating moments. This game's definitely a loot and grind fest, and that said; it's one of the best. It's super addicting to keep running the same nine stages(all nine have an alternate route with alternate boss and there's also a Labyrinth of Chaos where the true final boss resides that has a bunch of levels of enemies to fight), hoping to get better equipment, get experience, or complete one of the fifty side quests that give you extra skill points for abilities and some really well done artwork(complete with some lore) for your gallery that you can view at any time. One aspect that some may like or find interesting is the ability to customize up to nine packs of equipment to switch between while adventuring multiple dungeons in a row. Eventually you'll be able to buy extra packs, which will be invaluable for long treks and you'll need to keep several up to date and current for your level. It's often best to have packs dedicated for certain enemy types to make bosses and particular dungeons easier on yourself. So having a pack focused on minimizing damage from Undead while increasing the damage you can do to them would be good to have when a taking on particular route or boss with that type. It's also wise to have multiple packs to make sure you have fresh equipment and spells. They can only be restored and repaired in town, so while out in a string of dungeons racking up the multiplier bonuses you need to have packs with fresh items and spells(spells and items like potions can only be used a certain number of times and require a trip back to town to restore). Why this is never mentioned in any other reviews I see, I have no idea, because it's one mechanic I quite enjoy and adds quite a bit of depth. Of course grinding out loot and levels is most fun with friends and unfortunately this is where the game has a slight misstep... it takes roughly two to three hours to unlock online play(if you speedrun without doing any sidequests). At launch there was no cross-play support with PS3 users which was initially disappointing, but a few weeks ago they released a patch that allows it, so now you can play with your friend's who might only have a PS3, or may have just bought it for that instead, which is really nice since I got a Vita and have no PS3 and my friend had it on PS3 and has no Vita. Saw some people disappointed by the lack of stages, but that was never really the point of this type of game. The nine stages all have two paths and bosses, and you'll often be approaching and looking for different things every other time for sidequest objectives and the enemies are for the most part always randomized and placed in different areas. One run through they might attack right out of the gate. Next time you might not see anyone in the first room at all. All in all, if you like beating up things for loot and experience, 2-D brawlers, some fun co-op, or any combination of the above; this is probably one of the best options out there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredble Game for an Incredible System Don't let the simplistic art design throw you off from the deep Gameplay of Dragon's Crown. The game has multiple characters and each and every character plays in their own way.Lot's of gameplay, keeps you coming back for more, animations are wonderful and well done, simply a great game especially once you take it portable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Happy But Not Sad Now That I Have Had The Game I Have To Say It was Fun For A Bit But I Found The Flaws And Here they Are The Game Is Way Short Only 7 Stages Long !! And To Try And Make The Game Longer They Make You Go Through Them Again After You Have Beat All 7 And Collect Items That Can Only be Gotten On The Harder Dungeon Settings Just So You Can Fight The Last Boss And i Still don't like the art in this game and some of the classes you can play just don't feel as good as they should be the fighter is just not the beast he should be the amazon is way to slow and i wish all the classes had more moves or at least a talent tree of moves that the players could put points into so that all the classes would feel more like you had a hand in building it into the awesome tank or support or DPS monster you always wanted to play that being said it feels like a copy of Blizzards WoW if they ever nerfed it so bad that it went 2D and had less classes if atlus ever adds new classes and more dungeons ill think about rebuying it till then it will stay in the used game bin at my local gamestop

Rated 1 out of 5 by from SAD support I bought a vita just for a vcas 4032 dragon's crown. The game is great but Altus support sucks. A release of patch 1.01 is out 3 days ago but this particular version cant be patched. An error of c0-12574-9 appeared but no action seems to be taken. For such a great game to be wasted is really a pity
