    It`s been getting on average a review score of around 5 or 6 out of ten judging by a few reviews.

    Will i spend 70 euros on it?

    Hell no.

    From the screenshots i've seen looks more like a "3rd person shooter" than an RPG. Not my taste in game.

    But the lesson plan he can't recall
    The student's eyes don't perceive the lies
    Bouning off every fucking wall
    His composure is well kept
    I guess he fears playing the fool
    The complacent students sit and listen to some of that
    Bullshit that he learned in school" - Zack de la Rocha

    All well and good but i`d rather get other opinions first before dishing out on any game.

    It's supposed to be an action-RPG. So yes, it's kinda RPG, but mostly a action game.

    As long as Gackt isn't in it I'll buy it.

    Do you even know what an RPG is? =/

    It's a third-person shooter. Nothing more. By most objective accounts, it's a rather second-rate one.

    Obviously you don't know what an RPG is considering your calling this title purely a third person shooter. If you bothered to do any research on the game (which i doubt) you'll see that it has been labeled an action RPG. If you don't believe me go to google and type "dirge of cerberus"

    I took this from online.

    "Definitions of Role Playing Game on the Web:

    Long games with elaborate storylines that involve going on a quest and building experience that makes the PC stronger "

    You can level and gain expierence and their is definately an elaborate storyline. Plus sites that are dedicated to DoC call it an Action RPG

    There is a thread in this very forum containing a debate on the subject you might find enlightening. Track it down. I cannot be bothered to type out a lengthy explanation on the subject for someone I don't feel any obligation to in the first place.

    An RPG is a game where you create a role to play in with other users, the stat-building thing is a staple thrown in along the line for some reason. The stat-building schtick is however, NOT a defining feature of the genre.

    DoC in essence would be a TPS with stats thrown in to add flavour into the gameplay.

    If you want to know what RPing truely is, then I suggest you to get into a few DnD or any other Tabletop RPG campaigns. (Most of them can be sucessfuly held over IRC so you can look through the networks for an RP chatroom)

    I've played a few DnD games so i know what your talking about, but most websites that have reviewed or previewed DoC have referred to it as an Action/RPG. So it is infact not purely a third person as Prak said

    And as I have said numerous times around this forum, that use of the term "RPG" is a complete misnomer.

    Weren't you the same person who got pissed off because someone called on you for using a game site to form your opinions for you? Well, you're doing it again. You're probably lying too, considering that anyone who has played DnD would know the distinction between true RPGs and those that are just coined as so for having a common staple. Of course, if you actually did play DnD and put the opinions of some random internet game site over that, you're incredibly stupid. I'm sorry, but there's no way around that.

    Someone? that was you retard. I'm sorry to say but your wrong (again).

    I'm sorry Joan, but the dictionary has more credibility than you do. Sorry.

    I wasn't looking for someones opinion when i was looking up DoC, I was looking up facts, which is perfectly ok. Yes retard, i have played DnD. Do I masturbate to pictures of Elves and dwarves like you probably do? No.

    Once again i have proved you wrong.

    *waits for a response, still unimpressed*

    PompousPilate, it really saddens me to see you acting this way. You could be such a neat member if you'd stop the high-and-mighty act and simply try to learn your way around the community before getting into arguments.

    Anyway, a single online dictionary doesn't provide a lot of credibility since there are so many of them and they all seem to have it phrased differently.

    Also, the personal attacks are pretty dumb. Please try to be civilized. That goes for you too, Joan.

    I can act high-and-mighty if I want, I killed Jesus. Haha justkidding. But seriously if Joan keeps picking fights with me over the same issue on different threads I will continue to ass rape her with the facts.

    Thanks for the advice to Prak
