  1. You might find more polished versions of the game out there, but if you've ever wanted to take this arcade classic with you on the go, this is the version you need.
  2. 70
    Dragon’s Lair is downgraded to a neat novelty for the DSi due to the compression of the video which kills off some important flashes. Because of the latter, it is not necessarily newcomer-friendly. Still, it’s impressive to see the laser disc classic in a DSi download and serious retroheads will be tempted to give it a download.
  3. A nice bit of nostalgia for oldies, but doesn't quite have the same playability these days. [Mar 2010, p.93]

    Paying $8.00 (800 DSi points) for a badly pixelated and poorly executed game is never a good idea, no matter how great the nostalgia is.
