  1. Skilled players can probably blow through Story mode in a day or so, but the multiplayer modes make up for the brevity of that part of the game.
  2. Fans of the book (or movie) will certainly enjoy this fresh perspective of playing as Saphira with support from Eragon, especially since the other game variations do just the opposite.
  3. The ability to control a dragon so freely, and with so much power, has not been had from a previous handheld release.
  4. 64
    Much of the experience is hampered by shoddy control, and the mission objectives could use more variety. The multiplayer aspect provides plenty of entertainment, though.
  5. Eragon has some exciting moments, but they are overshadowed by frustrating controls and tedious level designs.
  6. 60
    If at all possible, give the multiplayer a shot; it's the game's best feature. There's no doubt that some gamers are going to take to this title like a dragon to the air, but for others, the fun may not even get off the ground.
  7. The neat thing about Eragon on the PSP is that it isn't a just a port of the PS2 game; but after playing both, we actually wish it were. [Feb. 2007, p.85]
