    An excellent treat for fans of the books and soon to be fans of the film. The game covers a lot of territory while doing a great job of bringing a decent amount of challenge and thrills to the masses.

The game has decent controls, though sometimes a bit slow reaction time, but otherwise great with the different abilities and features. Most important are the beautiful graphics (to be a PS2 game), awesome animations and the diversity of atmospheric stages, all with different, challenging enemies. One of my favorite PS2 games of all time and best childhood memories. Full Review »

    Though borne out of a truly awful movie adaptation, Eragon the game is actually remarkably well done, and thoroughly enjoyable. BaringThough borne out of a truly awful movie adaptation, Eragon the game is actually remarkably well done, and thoroughly enjoyable. Baring similarities to the Lord of the Rings movie games, the game takes you straight into the setpieces from the movie/books with great gameplay and mechanics. Worth a play for any fans of the book series whose eyes have not yet been tainted by the movie. Full Review »

Seriously it is all you do. the egg thing is just annoying. read the book, watch the film. then play the game... i liked it but that order is needed Full Review »
