  1. While the aerodynamics of dragon flight and combat tease you almost immediately, the game becomes repetitive quickly enough not to distract you from the plain graphics.
  2. 62
    For casual gamers, this game will prove to be frustrating, and for hardcore gamers, the gameplay itself isn't broad enough or deep enough to keep them interested.
  3. 55
    With all of the current A-list titles available, the flaws in Dragon Rage really scream out at you.
  4. The average, barely-passable shooting antics of Dragon Rage are a nice match to its mediocre graphics, mediocre sound, serviceable control and very tempting low asking price.
  5. The game can be fun at first, but that fun quickly dissipates as the same basic formula is reapplied again and again, and you'll soon realize that if you've played the first level, you may as well have played the whole game.
  6. It ain’t all that great to look at…[and] the controls can be rather awkward. [Feb 2002, p.40]
  7. Unfortunately, the game drains any excitement out of controlling a dragon and quickly becomes a mediocre flying shooter.
  8. Utterly unremarkable in every way possible. [Mar 2002, p.105]

    For $20, this "average" game is a big Fish you need to catch. The graphics are a little, well... bad, but the fast loading and overall nature generally overkill the player. the only reason this isnt a 10 is the rare possibility of playing all 16 missions (are there hidden levels? or are they just not there?
