  • Summary: See, for the first time, the magical world of Pern.

    In the shattered world of Pern only one can be savior. It is now your calling to seek out the new Weyrwoman to ride the mighty Gold Dragon, before Pern is forever destroyed.

    The brilliance of Pern comes alive.

  1. A well thought out and logical adventure game that, other than the no riding of dragons problem, is fairly solid, if a bit boring.
  2. Hardly a terrible game, but it has its share of issues and won't appeal to a large group of gamers.
  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.

    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.
  5. 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.

    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 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. Collapse

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