    Because of the differences between the game and the movie, both storywise plus the characters and creatures and such, it feels a lot better than the movie. The game has good controls, some a bit slow reactions 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 athmospheric stages, all with different, challenging enemies. One of my favorite games of all time and best childhood memories. Expand

  1. 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.

    Eragon isn't worth the brief amount of time it takes to play through it. The gameplay and presentation aren't up to snuff and the storytelling cutscenes don't do their job at all.

    Feels rushed and slapped-together as a low-budget attempt to cash in on the holiday film release and make a quick buck from the fans before word gets out that it's not worth half its retail price.
