  1. An excellent treat for fans of the books and soon to be fans of the film. The game covers a lot of territory while doing a great job of bringing a decent amount of challenge and thrills to the masses.
  2. For a mediocre movie to game translation, $40 is just too much coin to drop for a game that can be played from end to end in a single weekend of casual gaming.
  3. Great things are expected of the Eragon franchise, but this could be a thousand games we've played before. No single feature stands out as special, and the gameplay is all far too familiar.
  4. It feels too much like a light copy of the Lord of the Rings button-mashers Stormfront released a few years ago, only not as good.
  5. In the final analysis, however entertaining the movie might be, Eragon is an experience that's better to read than it is to play.
  6. Eragon is a big fat dud, plain and simple. The combat is incredibly boring and generic that the game becomes a chore to play almost right off the bat.
  7. Eragon is a breeze in six to eight hours, and no part, even the final battle, really tasks any of your elite or even rudimentary gaming skills.
