I wasn't aware Dragons Dogma had much of a story. OTOH, neither does Castlevania and the show just went "That's cool, we'll make it up as we go" using bits and pieces from the games lore.I tried watching the new Dragon's Dogma show on Netflix.
I don't much care for the idea of a Dragon's Dogma show, mostly because the story of Dragon's Dogma isn't all that interesting so there's not much there in terms of compelling writing, but I wanted to give this a shot because it's by the studio that did the Castlevania show, which is awesome.
So how does it compare? Poorly.
Honestly, I turned it off after about 8 minutes. This show clearly didn't have the same kind of budget or time that Castlevania got. The CGI is bad and rushed and the animation isn't very good. The whole thing looks like any of the other Netflix CGI anime shows, which are all incredibly mediocre.
So the visuals aren't interesting, the animation is subpar compared the Castlevania, and I never cared for the story of Dragon's Dogma. There's really nothing for me here.
I know it's not a great comparison, but I keep thinking someone trying to make an animated Adaptation of Dark Souls considering how sparse the actual storyline is.
