    This game was a lot better than I expected. The combat system is fluid and fun, with lots of variety. The damage physics and sound really feel like you're planting real hits on the enemies. The spell casting is a two part system of draw-first, then flick the spell from the touch screen. It's very satisfying.

Points off for abrubt ending and not much to bring you back, save for a complete replay sometime down the line when you're itching for some visceral kills. Expand

    I am enjoying it! It is nice to have an open area to fight in (like ffxll). Are the clay pots just decoration? I feel it is a great game.

  1. While the combat is quite fun, with new skills frequently added, it's also a bit too repetitive, and baddies are quite happy to stand still while you fill them with arrows. [Dec 2006, p.55]
  2. The Nintendo DS version of Eragon has its share of flaws. If you are a hardcore fan of the book or the movie, then you might be able to find some enjoyment out of the game, but anyone else may want to steer clear of this one or perhaps try one of the other versions.

    With combat that is just easy enough to engage the younger crowd, borrowed elements that keep the game from being boring, and a storyline that the kids already love, Eragon on the DS makes for an adequate movie-licensed RPG-lite for adventuring tweens everywhere.
