Hmmm... I wish I could give it a 4-star review. Maybe even a 3. I mean, it's 5. FOR ME. I definitely love it. But it is pretty divisive. Just like Nier, or the first two Drakengard games that all precede this in the series.

The game doesn't give off a great 1st impression no matter what though; that much is universal. It looks like a vast improvement over Nier and Deadly Premonition - both games are technically this one's predecessor, as the developer here (Access Games) acquired the studio responsible for Nier/Drakengard 1 + 2 (Cavia), so the development team was a combination of members from both (infamously ugly) games. This is still pretty ugly. It's also a bit of a mess. This plays like a Unreal 3-powered game... from 2006, from a studio who never used it before, and it's gonna get on your nerves when you HAVE to watch a cutscene of a door close behind you or a seal magically disappear so you can move into the next room. It's masking LOAD TIMES, because they're not good engineers and haven't figured out how to stream game data further down in the level, lol. There's all sorts of problems here, unfortunately, and the art direction is bland. The character + creature designs are easily the highlight though, and they are pretty cool. The "high detail" variants in cutscenes look phenomenal too. Animation, VFX, all that stuff looks great, but the overall impression is pretty mediocre. But that's not even what may put you off.

No. What may put you off is the story. Because you're playing a psychopath, who's pretty unjustly murdering people who don't SEEM like they deserve it. It's not even a grey area.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Rare Type of Game Featuring Dark Nature May 21, 2014
Drakengard 3 protagonist is an intoner name Zero. She is direct, cruel, and fearful with a major goal to kill her intoner sisters. The game is highly sexual through language and cutscenes. Do "not" expect Drakengard 3 to be a beautiful fairy tale of a colorful world because it is a dark twisted humor.

The Game:
1. Excessive Blood & Gore (Can turn off blood splatter in settings)
2. Strong verbal and sexual language
3. English voice acting is well done
4. Outdated Graphics
5. Linear Gameplay (Do not expect to explore secret passages)
6. High Quality Hack, Slash and Dash functionality
7. Dragon controls are mediocre
8. Optimization issues (Lags in big fights or excessive explosions and could use AA)
9. Loading time to move forward in gameplay can ruin the momentum.
10. Creative Storyline, yet, simple plot.

**** WHAT HELPS A LOT ****

Read the background story to comprehend the dark nature of this game because diving right into gameplay can turn off a lot of new players due to a wicked opening scene and first gameplay experience.

------- Other Reviews ----------

Most early reviews of the game are poor because of failing to understand the background story except for Destructoid's review. The game dark nature throw off to many reviewers are the thought of "good guy / gal" socialization or perception without one thought being completely opposite. Zero brings out the opposite personality (dark); meanwhile, her Dragon is the exact opposite (light).
I would give this game "5 Stars" but the gameplay optimizations and censoring both visual and audio cut scenes sugar coats Drakengard 3 dark nature.
Despite what I said, look past Drakengard 3 flaws to enjoy a great game that explores the impossible personality and thoughts!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good humor with terrible graphics and frame rate May 23, 2014
By Calintz
Reviewing this game is challenging given that it is both refreshing and disappointing in so many ways. To start off, the game boasts one of the more creative casts of characters I've seen in an RPG/Action game. The main character Zero is very endearing in her own antagonistic way. The crude humor abounds this game, dick jokes are everywhere. If you are easily offended by almost frat-like sexual conversations and innuendos then you should turn away right now because this game has them in spades. With that said, if you are part of the limited audience who will enjoy this kind of humor, then you are in luck! Drakengard 3 will be a riot for you. When it comes to my opinion on the humor, I felt that at first it was a really nice way to introduce me into the world of Drakengard; after the 20 hour mark or so the humor became stale and overplayed. However, the dialogue remained one of the best aspects of this game up until the end. To be frank, once you drop about 20 hours into the game you start to realize just how little outside of creative dialogue this game really has to offer. It's really quite an anemic experience when you start to compare it to other games in it's genre such as God of War, Bayonetta, and Devil May Cry. Sure, Drakengard 3 maybe much longer than those games, but it provides so little substance that the game feels like it's all quantity with little quality. Like filling up on junk food, it may fill you up, but it will give you nothing of sustenance. Overall Drakengard 3 is a "fair" game that gets combat, humor, and dialogue right most of the time, while miserably failing to provide innovative game play or even an acceptable aesthetic experience.

Graphics:
The graphics are some of the worst I have seen on playstation 3.

4.0 out of 5 stars This game is a catastrophe, and I mean that in the best way possible.
The combat is stiff and derivative, stages are reused regularly and the graphics along with the framerate will make you wonder if this is the first time these devs touched Unreal... Read more

The gameplay is good, but the story suffers from a very over the top anime dynamic. If you're into that sort of thing, it's fine, but a lot of the voice acting got on my nerves.
