  1. Better than the usual movie-to-game ports. Instead of re-enacting the story of the film we can train our dragon and send him into nice-looking, but far too easy fights.
  2. How to Train Your Dragon bucks the trend of bad movie games by being a solid monster fighting RPG.
  3. For fans worth a look, but nevertheless, the fighting is getting quickly monotonous and motivation decreases quickly. Even the unlockable, new attacks are not an incentive, as most attacks have similar effects and there is not too much variety.
  4. Games aren’t beauty pageants, though, and while this game looks good, it isn’t really that interesting.

    The combat is pedestrian and repetitive. [May 2010, p.69]
