Take to the skies as a terrifying dragon and reign terror over the world, savaging the earth and destroying everything in your path breathing fireballs and napalm. (TheFight for mankind as one of the many different human forces, with a huge arsenal of high tech weaponry at your disposal. Take to the skies as a terrifying dragon and reign terror over the world, savaging the earth and destroying everything in your path breathing fireballs and napalm. (The player can choose whether they play as either a Human or a Dragon following two different routes--In effect two games in one.) Experience numerous action packed missions, including the desecration of central London, military style reconnaissance activities, third person shootouts and heroic fire fighting rescues. Third person shoot-em up action taking place over scorched landscapes, the result of battles between two species competing for survival - human and dragon. [BAM! Entertainment] Expand

  1. A fast-paced game with loads of action. The game looks good and plays well.
  2. Though I liked Reign a lot, its horrible collision detection and frustrating later levels must be noted. [Dec 2002, p.164]
  3. The action in this game is somewhat undercut by loose control. [Holiday 2002, p.54]
  4. Ambitious in construction and theory, but lacking in overall gameplay and entertainment value, Reign of Fire limps half-heartedly to the finish line.
  5. It’s not a perfect game by any stretch of the imagination, but Reign of Fire certainly captures the adventurous spirit and atmosphere of its motion picture counterpart.
  6. Excitement quickly fades, leaving you with a game with unresponsive controls and lackluster action.
  7. You may begin to find yourself suffering from the Too-Much-Sameness disorder. Symptoms include boredom and the unwillingness to complete the game.

    I can't understand some of the reviews above that complain about the controls - this for me is the best vehicle combat game I've I can't understand some of the reviews above that complain about the controls - this for me is the best vehicle combat game I've ever played. Games like twisted metal have no skill. This game lets you aim without driving straight at the target - great! Expand

    This game is addicting in the beginning until you realize how darn slow you are, and look up and thousands of dragons are bombarding you. This game is addicting in the beginning until you realize how darn slow you are, and look up and thousands of dragons are bombarding you. It's an alright game, but the dragons should be more scarce to actually make it physically possible to beat. Collapse
