  1. From the creation of potions to the combo attacks, Eragon offers a surprising amount of depth that will please any RPG fan.
  2. This is one game that was a joy to play and review even though my kids where constantly bugging me to play it themselves. I guess that shows how well liked Eragon for the GBA is for many age groups.
  3. A pure slice of RPG goodness that's worth a play through whether you've read the book or not.
  4. Eragon doesn't do much to embellish its simplistic design, but it's a surprisingly satisfying role-playing game despite its shorcomings.
  5. Eragon for the GBA is a surprise for me because it kept reminding me of RPGs from the 16-Bit era. This isn't another cookie-cutter licensed game; instead the game offers a deep, albeit flawed, gameplay experience.
  6. Eragon is an experience better read than played!
  7. There isn't anything here that I don't remember seeing several years ago. The background could have come from any of a hundred different games and the character are pretty blurry.

    This game is very entertaining over and over again. It is very customizable with the characters. It is worth the time and money.

    This game's alot better than some people might think. Not your typical RPG movie tie-in.

    This is not a bad game, the critics are very wrong on this one, but yet at points it can be a little frustrating, too easy, or it doesn't make any sense at all. Expand
