What seems like an ambitious design turns out to be overly complicated, completely frustrating and totally confusing. Racing dragons sounds like a cool concept, but Dragon Booster doesn't end up anywhere near a cool DS game.
Dragon Booster is one of those games that feels like it was jammed out the door to meet the holiday deadline. While it may carry the cool cachet of an anime license, it's control issues and generic production values will have gamers avoiding it like the plague.
The idea is solid, but the haphazard controls suck most of the enjoyment from these rails. We'd like to see more dragons in our games, but requiring the use of an ice pack after bouts with the stylus seems unnecessary.
