    If you like fast split-action instant-fire games, this is not for you. If you like "thinking" games, like Myst, this might be more up your alley. Dragon's Lair 3D is like a slower version of the original Dragon's Lair.

If you like "thinking" games, like Myst, this might be more up your alley. Dragon's Lair 3D is like a slower version of the original Dragon's Lair. Instead of becoming a game of quick reactions, it's a game where you can roam and explore and think about what you're going to do before you get knee-deep in the hoopla. Don't get me wrong... there is plenty of action and speed skills you'll have to master in this game, but you'll also have to be a good thinker if you're going to win this adventure. The original animated (laserdisc) arcade version of Dragon's Lair made some waves and captured the hearts of many quarter-toting teens. Dragon's Lair 3D, although not really breaking any new technology boundaries, provides what Dragon's Lair fans have always wanted -- a way to actually explore Dirk's surroundings, not just react to them. Aside from the original laserdisc arcade game, I would say this is the next best addition to the Dragon's Lair franchise (because they have released some stinkers in the past -- mostly ports of the original). It's not for everyone, though -- if you want non-stop, non-thinking kill-them-now action this game is not for you. If you want to challenge your mind as well as partake in action sequences this game may be what you're looking for. Expand

  1. Bottom line, the game is solid - it's very challenging, great to look at, and very different from its peers. [Winter 2002, p.97]
  2. It's never going to win any awards for best game but it's fun while it lasts and you can't put a price tag on those nostalgic twinges you get whilst playing it.
  3. Not worth your time or money, and it's certainly a shame for fans of this once-groundbreaking series.
