  1. It’s good to see a developer at least trying to break the mold on the system, but Dragon Blade is far too archaic and bland to appeal to either side of the Wii equation.
  2. This wimpy action game for the Wii is easy on the wrist but hard on the eyes.
  3. 40
    A punishingly difficult action game.
  4. A sub par game that missed its potential. There could be more to this title, but developers rushed the title to the door. While this game is bound for the bargain bin, it does have some qualities that make it worth checking out when the price drops.
  5. unless you are really into dragons then I would not buy this game. Rent it, you may enjoy it more than I did, but for a game that lasts around five hours it should not have felt stale long before the final dragon was slain.
  6. Unfortunately even at 40 bucks, the price is about 30 too much and the game can’t be relied upon to provide anything other than brief moments of cool sandwiched between hours and hours of frustrating mediocrity. Dragon Blade isn’t budget—it’s low rent.

    This game isn't a mindless hack and slash it's a game where you have to actually think about the moves you make. If you just start attacking you'll get killed pretty fast. The controls do get frustrating especially when you are trying to kill a boss, but if you turn down the sensitivity in the options they work A LOT better. It is mission based and the missions are point A to point B, but there are armor pieces you can find when you look around.This game reminds me a lot of the summoner on the PS2 because the combat and the graphics are a bit similar. Its a pretty good game for the Wii. Full Review »

    A great, well designed and fun game that grows on you the more you play. A great buy at $40 (which I paid for it), and an even better value now at $20 at Amazon.com Full Review »

    Overall a fun experience for Wii users who value entertainment over graphics and gimmickry - it is challenging for those of us not a part of the gaming generation. Full Review »
