  1. Sadly the lack of multiplayer support and any kind of depth beyond the two playable races really hamper the game's lastability.
  2. The lack of any real longevity hurts the overall appeal for most people, but thankfully this blows the movie out of the water, but that really isn’t saying much. Just to play as the dragon though, go give this game a rent!
  3. What hurts the game the most is the vehicle control setup. In a game where you are firing at enemies from all directions you need independent steering and weapons controls. Not so here. [Feb 2003, p.81]
  4. Starts out like a raging inferno but quickly extinguishes itself rather quickly with its repetitiveness and dreadful controls.
  5. Reign Of Fire looks impressive, creating a suitably post-apocalyptic world, but everything is so brown that the visuals become rather samey very quickly.
  6. 50
    Repetitious missions and cumbersome controls pilot Reign of Fire headfirst in the dirt.
  7. The game isn't even remotely balanced. [Winter 2002, p.102]

    The game is underatted like the movie. The fight between the dragons and the humans is choatic. It feels like a real war with big explosions The game is underatted like the movie. The fight between the dragons and the humans is choatic. It feels like a real war with big explosions the ground shanking when dragons are brought down, stinger missile like weapons shot out of the vehichle looke realistic. At times the fighting made me confused and start looking around in a clueless way. This is what I liked because it shows what real armed forces face in war. The graphics of explosions, water, amount of humans and dragons looks good but in other parts the textures are dark. Overall its a good game. Expand
