Dragon's Dogma 2 Faces Backlash: 7 Reasons Why Fans Are Fuming 

Despite critical acclaim, Dragon's Dogma 2 faces performance issues on PC, including framerate drops, freezes, and crashes. Capcom is investigating and promises fixes in future patches.

CPU Usage Affects Frame Rate

Capcom attributes frame rate dips to high CPU usage when numerous characters appear simultaneously. The company is exploring ways to improve performance in such situations.

Console versions of Dragon's Dogma 2 also suffer from performance hits during large-scale battles, with frame rates dipping tremendously when multiple enemies and spells fill the screen.

Dragon's Dogma 2's day-one microtransactions have drawn ire from fans. Players can purchase useful exploration gear and items, leading to concerns about the game's design pushing.

Capcom maintains that all microtransaction items in Dragon's Dogma 2 can be obtained through normal gameplay, serving as optional convenience skips. This practice is common in other Capcom titles.

Full-Priced Game Controversy

Some players argue that full-priced games like Dragon's Dogma 2 shouldn't charge additional money for in-game items, regardless of their obtainability through normal play.

The combination of performance issues and controversial microtransactions has led to a flood of negative reviews on Steam, resulting in a "Mostly Negative" rating for Dragon's Dogma 2.
