    Graphics were good, control's were pretty backwards, and the characters took to long to react.

    One of the better Book>Film>Game games to come out. Others, such as Lord of the Rings failed, but the new drop-in drop-out 2 player mode is a nice addition. However, it is neither here nor there - it's not an RPG - leave that to Drakan; The Ancients Gates with it's superb dragon handling, and it's not a 2 player arcade game. Dynasty Warriors is a much better game. However, One of the better Book>Film>Game games to come out.

    Reviewers just don't understand what makes us kids happy. They made all the characters cool in this game. I love it!

    The game itself is good, but the bits where the man talks with really poor graphics are not good at all. the final level is too easy, you just sit there holding R1, pressing X a lot and sometimes pressing L1. 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

    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 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. Expand

    Though 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.

    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.
