  1. From my perspective, this title fails to find its audience – it doesn’t deliver enough content for the older kids, and the frustration factor is too high for younger kids. I’d say you could catch this one when Toys R’ Us runs their next 2-for-1 sale, but I’d be hard pressed to recommend it at full retail price.
  2. To shallow for teens or adults, too overwhelming for kids, and too mind-numbingly repetitive for everyone, How to Train Your Dragon sets the bar pretty average for the rest of the movie license line-up coming this year.
  3. The game looks good and the controls are not hard to understand, but this is another in a long line of games that are riding the crest of the feature film and not offering anything compelling enough to maintain interest for long.

    This game is mainly for a younger audience. The gameplay is pretty simple, so everyone can pick it up. The audio isn’t really great and some lines are repeated over and over. Visually the game has an interesting array of colors but it is never really fantastic. How To Train Your Dragon: a game that could have been a lot better.
  5. 50
    Because of the bad gameplay and graphics is How To Train Your Dragon not a special game. It's a better idea to spend your money on a ticket to see the movie version in a cinema.
  6. 46
    How to Train Your Dragon is just so "bleh." You can make a fun game for kids, but this isn’t one of them.
  7. Don't spend your money on How To Train Your Dragon, no matter how much you enjoyed the movie. You can easily do better than this terrible, movie-tie-in, mad grab for cash.
