    The iPhone edition of Dragon's Lair is excellent, bested only by the Blu-ray edition (which looks insane).

    Clearly a "must have" for nostalgia value.

    Worth owning, if only to lay claim to a very unique part of video game history.

    While arguably an acquired taste, the awe-inspiring animated action boasted by Dragon's Lair is sure to charm you.

    For fans of the original who have the need for a pocketable version to have with them at all times, it's great. But for everyone else it might just come across as a "So what game" and not the historical masterpiece it is meant to be.

    Making better use of the hardware than most iPhone games, Dragon's Lair takes advantage of the platform's video capabilities, making the game a far better value than other handheld alternatives. The game's excellent presentation values serve to punctuate an already great remake.
