  1. The quality of animation seen here is unheard of in modern gaming – or many contemporary films, for that matter.
  2. Adults and kids alike won’t be able to resists the mesmerizing visuals and the memorizing gameplay.
  3. If you want to reclaim some precious nostalgia from your past, in High Def, then this is the definitive version of Dragon’s Lair...bar none.
  4. Dragon’s Lair HD is not likely to appeal to anyone who is not already a lifelong aficionado of the game.
  5. It's killer as nostalgia, somewhat crap as a game, and the surprising $50 price will put it out of the minds of all but the most passionate collectors.
  6. 40
    If you want to play the game, there are far cheaper ways to do it and in terms of comparison, they aren't all that bad. Dragon's Lair HD could have been something special, something truly nostalgic, but walks away as nothing more than a shameless cash in.

    It looks lovely, but plays like an out-of-tune banjo, thanks to the notorious trial-and-error gameplay. [Sept 2006, p.104]
