The original Dragon's Crown features groups of heroes that face dreadful challenges in the labyrinthine dungeons surrounding the medieval fantasy kingdom of Hydeland. As they explore deeper into the dungeons, non-player characters come in to play with quests and tasks to complete. Use six adventurers (Fighter, Dwarf, Amazon, Wizard, Elf, and Sorceress) and their unique abilities to unravel the story behind the ultimate treasure, the Dragon's Crown. Exclusive to the west and only available in a limited quantity, the Battle-Hardened Edition of the multiplayer action-adventure game, Dragon’s Crown Pro, brings Vanillaware’s fantastical adventure into your hands as never before. The set includes 7 collectible skill cards representing the 6 different classes plus the common skills, and a shining metal case encapsulating this ultimate package for game collectors.

Positives: -Easy to learn controls that are responsive
-Fluid combat where each character has a fun role to play
-Impressive and beautifully drawn style along with fluid animation for all the characters and enemies
-Loot system that encourages replaying and side quests that actually can feel rewarding and not just a grind
-Easy couch co-op for up to 4 people where loot and items are shared in the same save file so that everyone works towards the same goals and can share the acquired gold and items/weapons
-Good voice acting from the character classes along with the narrator
-Lots of customization with skill leveling and items/weapons
-Gameplay can feel repetitive in longer sessions, but with each character class feeling distinct to play encourages mixing it up
-AI teammates can supplement your team and make the game fun even solo
Flaws: -The menus and how you use shops/quests/etc are clunky in co-op, as it has to be done one at a time by each player, which can make time between dungeons drag out
-The manual is digital and laid out in font so small on screen it's almost unreadable
-Could use better in game instructions for how some systems work, like the quick item menu or how various stats affect you
-Some levels feel too short and some quests are more grindy
All being said, the flaws basically just annoy you a bit because the game otherwise pulls you in and has you wanting to play more. They don't harm the experience much, just stick out as some rough spots that should have been smoothed out for this remaster. The game is still rock solid though, it looks amazing and runs flawlessly on PS4 with no slow down and quick load times. Most importantly it's just fun and great to pick up for an hour or two at a time, even better if you've got a friend or more to play with.
Of course nobody can talk about Dragon's Crown without mentioning the... exaggerated character designs. Whether they bother you or add to your fun is totally subjective, but I'll just say that I find it all feels fine in the framework of the over the top fantasy setting of the game, and if nothing else does a good job of making each character class look unique and stand our from the crowd.
I enjoyed this when it first came out and I had to get it again. There are a few new skills to learn, new controller features (the touchpad makes interacting with the background a lot easier than on the ps3 or Vita), and the new music is gorgeous (i would not mind having the OST of this in my collection). Ans of course all the beautiful art work is also touched up, for the the resurrection scenes to Morgan's shop. And of course nothing says welcome back like taking on the blatant Monty Python nod of Tim the sorcerer and the killer rabbit. IF you were a fan before it is a must have, and if you always wanted to play this but never could - nothing stopping you now.
