  • Summary: Based on the movie, Reign of Fire lets you play as either a human or a dragon in an epic battle. As a human, you'll take the role of a resistance fighter who's trying to defend the last remaining humans from attack. You must make your way to the site of the sole male dragon using a variety of well-equipped vehicles and high-tech weaponry. As a dragon, you'll take the role of an infant, led by instinct to attack foes, and you'll attempt to eradicate the human race. With your natural fire-breathing and flying abilities, you can destroy everything on the ground or in the skies. Expand

  1. The biggest frustration with Reign of Fire is the controls themselves, which are cumbersome in either setting and don’t work too well in a fast paced action title.
  2. The graphics are grainy but interesting. Sound effects are awesome, especially when concerning the dragons. Ignore the voice acting and you’re good to go.
  3. It's gritty and grey, a joy to control, and above all, it's unique in its presentation, allowing the player to play as human or dragon. [Dec 2002, p.88]
  4. A slightly frustrating and resolutely average game which does nothing to capitalize on its source material or distinguish itself from other games, and displays worrying signs of rushed development and technical inadequacy.
  5. Every bit as average as Reign of Fire the movie. A few interesting missions save it from being a trainwreck but the visuals and controls could have used some serious work.
  6. Poor graphics, poor controls, and a theme based on a bad movie makes Reign of Fire a game to avoid.

    Barbara B. and Shawn T. ¿Are you serious players? The only thing that sucks here are your reviews. This game ROCKS!

    I know that you have to beat 6 humman missions to be a dragon but the 5 level is virtually impossible but the graphics are quite good.
