  1. The combat in this title is extremely weak and features little to no depth other than smack-smack-smack-bang.
  2. Thankfully, most levels shouldn’t take more than thirty minutes to complete. Regardless, it’s still incredibly inconvenient and stupid to not let the player save whenever necessary.

    It suffers from lackluster visuals, sluggish controls and an overabundance of fetch quests. [Sept 2003, p.135]
  4. Tries very hard to capture the atmosphere and style of the Dinotopia books, but for the most part, it just isn't a lot of fun to play.

In those days, I got money mowing the lawn once a week, and my parents would pay me three dollars for it. In other words, two weeks worth of my life were spent working up to this game. I was too young to know any better, and I hadn't played very many video games in that short span of my life, yet. I was ripped off. Expand
