Final Breakdown


A very lackluster fighting game tacked on to a boring resource hunt, tacked on to minigames... ouch.


Obviously, there was a benefit to having the movie's models to work with in crafting the game, and that works very well.

Sound and Music:

Alright, so the music's repetitive. The voice acting, what there is of it, is spot-on.


Difficult? Perhaps for the younger crowd, but I'd guess not really.

Controls and Interface:

The fighting game section, the only one where the controls are really all that relevant, is a cross between a button-masher and a "input the moves and wait for it to finish" fighter. It feels a lot more like they took an existing fighting game engine and just bolted the dragons in.


I do hate to pan a game this hard, but if you're not a 5-year-old obsessed with the movie, the game is just not going to be fun.
