A prequel to the original Drakengard, Drakengard 3 transports players to a medieval world where six sisters wield special magical abilities as the "Intoners. "These sisters have brought peace to the earth with their power to manipulate magic through song. Harmony is disrupted, however, when the eldest sister, Zero, attempts to murder her younger sisters with the help of her dragon companion, Mikhail. As the story progresses, players find themselves in a battle to unravel the mystery of Zero and learn her true intentions. The world is ruled by Intoners, sisters whose songs unleash vast powers. One day, the eldest sister Zero appears with her dragon Mikhail in tow, in order to kill her 5 sisters. Why did Zero appear before her sisters? Why does she travel with a dragonkin? What exactly is an Intoner? Darkness is upon the horizon.
Top Customer Reviews
As you progress through the game, the quality of the game seems to rise proportionally to the amount of time you spend with it. This is because the further you get in the game, the more characters join you and the more you learn about the protagonists, Zero and Mikhail. Theirs is the central story and it was so engaging that I felt that I HAD to continue playing, just to see it to its conclusion.
You may be asking, if the story truly does negate those nitpicks, why only 4 stars? At the end of the game, right before the final boss, the game demands that you not only buy every weapon in the game but also upgrade them completely. Doing this means playing the same side quests that only involve you beating waves of boring identical enemies for money. The games fast pace is utterly destroyed at the very end simply to pad the game. It is so boring and unnecessary many player never see the final boss because they simply can't be bothered to get over that terrible grind wall.
That egregious sin aside, Drakengard 3 is most certainly worth playing but only if you have the wherewithal to see it though to the end. If so, you are in for a deeply satisfying gaming experience. A worthwhile experience if you can stand the pain.
Still all in all this is a fun by itself game if you haven't played the previous Drakengard games and for the price a good one to add for action/adventure/fantasy PS3 gamers looking to add to their game collection.
The game play is almost the exact same as the previous two Drakengard games. The one big change is that you can't ride your dragon on command in the ground levels, but this comes with the trade off of more unique levels that wrap around the landscapes of various areas in the game, unlike the last two games that have a lot big open battle fields for ground levels. This game has a lot more dark humor throughout the game where the last two were just kind of dark. I really like all the things the enemies are yelling at each other as you mow them down with your sword and/or dragon.
