  1. I've never read the novels this game is based on, and thanks to the suffering that I called playing Dragon Riders, I never will.
  2. A well thought out and logical adventure game that, other than the no riding of dragons problem, is fairly solid, if a bit boring.
  3. Regular adventure gamers, though, will be gnashing their teeth with frustration at the awkward controls, naff fighting system and endless mini-quests that have a noble hero working like an errand boy.
  4. Hardly a terrible game, but it has its share of issues and won't appeal to a large group of gamers.
  5. 36
    An awful mess of lengthy loading times, terrible camera angle control, and a slowness of gameplay that makes this one of the most disappointing games to come out this year.

    Awful awful awful. The story was terrible the whole game was terrible, a travesty to the books the game is based on.

    One of the most beautifully crafted games ive ever played. It does what games are supposed to do...relieve stress. It has a great storyline and follows Mccaffreys' storyline greatly. It does have a downside referring to the loading times and the lack of large amounts of action...But on the whole, I really enjoyed the game. Full Review »
