    How to Train Your Dragon is just so "bleh." You can make a fun game for kids, but this isn’t one of them.
  2. Yet another licensed yawn-fest where neither missions nor collecting of silly items is any fun, at all. Not even for the younger gamers, sadly.
  3. Although based on a neat idea, this movie tie-in is hampered by a severe lack of content. A broken battle system and some extremely tedious gathering of items make How to Train Your Dragon hard to recommend to anyone.
  4. 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.

    This is a very solid title that can be enjoyed by any age. It's nothing special but excells at what it's trying to do. It's a shallow "Monster Rancher" style game where you explore some of the locales from the film, collect items and well..train your dragon for the arena. It's passable graphically and the mechanics are there despite some camera issues in explore mode. Definitely worth a look if you or your kids are big fans of the film. Full Review »
