Multiplayer usually plays second fiddle to character progression and storyline in RPGs. Games like Castle Crashers and Dungeon Defenders are the exception to the rule, offering a solid RPG experience while giving players mountains of replayability with friends. These multiplayer romps are few and far between, and the ones worth your time even less so. Put together the addictiveness of a good co-op RPG with breathtaking visuals and a deep leveling and combat system and you have the trimmings for the next great action RPG.
Enter Dragon’s Crown, the newest RPG from Atlus and Vanillaware. Dragon’s Crown is an action RPG that successfully manages to not only play well, but be incredibly fun with friends and look damn good while doing it.
There are so many great aspects to Dragon’s Crown that it’s hard to say just what the biggest highlight even is. The art style is wonderfully done, but then the multiplayer is equally entertaining. The sound is great as well, but then again the gameplay is deep and engaging. There’s a lot to Dragon’s Crown and that’s what makes the game one of the best I’ve played in recent memory.
