  1. Leaves the feeling of mediocrity in your stomach after playing. Its fun, it’s enjoyable, but it gets old fast.
  2. The controls are so weak that I am having a tough time deciding which is more aggravating: controlling Bruce Lee, or non-stop clipping. Either way, you'll be disgruntled by this game's lack of an intuitive control system.
  3. A mediocre game at best. Graphically and sonically, it stinks but with a better framerate, these issues and enemy AI problems could have been forgiven.

    And as if uninspired gameplay wasn’t enough, the game is chock full of the dandiest bugs this side of my bathtub. Let’s see - where to begin. Clipping, bad frame rates, stuck fighters, horrid camera movement, moves that just don’t work and sluggish controls.
  5. Exceptionally poor: we imagine Bruce is rolling in his grave right now. [Oct 2002, p.109]
  6. The twin albatrosses of slowdown and mediocre graphics loom large over Dragon, and shoddy programming allows for honest-to-dreadfulness crashes. [Fall 2002, p.118]
  7. Such a flawed piece of tripe that no one should have to pay for it, be it a purchase, rental or even as part of your rent. This is the kind of game that you would give to your enemies.

    Hey guys stop saying that this game sucks or graphics are bad...You should look at it like a general type of a fighting game. My opinion is that this game is one of the best games ever made!!!! Collapse

    The best thing I can say about this game is that they managed to get the sound of Bruce Lee's battle cries right. Anything else beyond that just fails so very very badly. The graphics aren't too bad, but enemy AI is so lackluster and predictable that I got through most levels bashing the controller against the wall. The story is nonsensical and Bruce Lee feels weaker than he should be, which is an insult. Worst of all is the stereotypical voice acting in which everything is delivered with no effort. I came into this game not expecting much, but they delivered worse than what I asked for. More like Quest For Boredom. Expand
