  • Summary: Based on the popular animated series airing on ABC Family and Toon Disney, Dragon Booster is a fast paced 3rd person racing/action game set in a fantastical world where humans and dragons co-exist. When their peaceful way of life is disrupted, Beau, a legendary dragon, chooses Artha Penn, an ordinary 16-year old, to become a mythical hero known as the Dragon Booster. In this classic tale of good versus evil, Artha must use his new-found abilities to defeat his foes and unite humans and dragons once and for all. [Konami] Expand

  1. If so much of the game weren't based solely on the touch screen, Konami might have had a winner. [Feb 2006, p.100]
  2. Despite a cool concept, the unusable controls and other flaws prevent Dragon Booster from making the cut.
  3. Riding dragons and racing them against others should have been a fun idea, but here is marred by sloppy controls, dull races and bland visuals.
  4. 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.
  5. A poor game with next to no modes, excitement or stuff to recommend it. [July 2006, p.84]
  6. Dragon Booster is a halfhearted and practically unplayable racing game with no redeeming qualities.
  7. Parents, avoid this game if you don’t want your little tyke smashing his expensive DS against a wall in frustration. Dragon Booster fails in nearly every way and never should have seen the outside of the development studio.

    The game itself I didnt think was too bad but, there was 1 big issue that got me really mad about it. This game thats out right now wasnt the originaly version. In the original version you could.
    3rd Person Action: Collecting, Breeding, Exploration
    1st Person Dragon Riding: Combat, Racing, Fighting
    Capture, Breed and Collect Up to 12 Different Dragons
    Trade Gear and Dragons over Wireless Connection

    And, for some reason. Half way through the prosedure...they pulled all of that stuff out. See for yourself http://www.konami.com/gs/gameinfo.php?id=46 and, thats false advertisment and, I want answers and, that version of the game put out. If that version was released the game would be 10 times better.

    In a sneak peek of my cousin DS library , the curiosity to play a flawed Tv show pulled me to see how it worked. After a few minutes , I found it wasn't that great. Uninspired , software made of hate. Expand
