    Fans of the Dragons franchise, and perhaps more so younger fans, should find plenty to enjoy here. [Issue #39 – May/June 2019, p. 72]

    Despite being a licensed tie-in, Dragons: Dawn of New Riders is anything but a broken, half-baked money-grab. It’s not particularly remarkable in its features – and it really misses a trick by not adding more things to do while riding your dragon between dungeons – but for recovering Skylanders fans and those a little too young to go loot crazy in Diablo, this is still a family-friendly adventure that’s well worth your time on Nintendo Switch.

    Dreamworks launches a game that is not based on the third How to Train your Dragon, but in its universe. Dragon: Riders of a New Dawn is basically a light version of Diablo and Zelda: a good Dungeon Crawler for kids and parents who want to teach them how to navigate trough this genre. A game that can fly, but at ground level.

    DreamWorks Dragons: Dawn of New Riders is not a game that stands out in the Nintendo Switch catalog. The game does not improve as you progress through its story and its technical section has major issues.

    A very fun and inventive spin on the franchise. Fun to explore and the puzzles are perfect.

    Great game, enjoyed it a lot! This game is great for kids and is like the new movie How to train your Dragon The hidden world.

    Not a particularly challenging game, but it's charming enough and a good time waster.

    It’s a very easy fun game. It’s by no means challenging but it’s great for younger gamers.

I was externally looking forward to buying this game since its a How to Train Your Dragon game "Which is my favorite trilogy of all time" so I was existed, and then the game came and its bad. its not as bad as the buggy Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion but Outright Games have disappointed me again. I really hope that Jumanji: The Video Game does not disappoint me. Expand
