  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 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
