An adventure game like Zelda but you can ride a dragon. Great 3d graphics for the DS.
Pros: -Graphics are good for DS -Game play is great you can block, strafe, roll, double jump, do weak and strong attacks -Combo system and new moves -Full controllable 360 degree camera view while outside -Switch from 3rd person view into 1st person view with the bow and arrow -Fun side quests -Hardly any load time -Save anywhere
Cons: -Drawing and pictures for story is bad since there is no dialouge. -Sound effects could be better -Ai characters repeat alot of the same things -No camera control while in inside houses -Moving from control to touch pad to use spells and items -Control of the dragon is too fast and sensitive
All that is said is what I seen so far. I'm not too far since I've only had it for a day. I would consider it a buy or rent but with everything, I don't know how long this game actually lasts.
My 12 year old son is a huge fan of the books and the movie. He really enjoyed this game. he says it's closer to the movie than the book. He likes drawing the symbols and talking to the Dragon. He also enjoyed the mini games. He is also a Pokemon fan and he liked this more than the Pokemon series.
Ever since the movie came out i figured they were going to tear the book up in the movie,(it seems they are headed that way)I figured it would be the same way as the movie,screwed up. Definitly not so.
Pros- Acurate settings good fighting style great evoltution(leveling)style I liked the dagger add on
Cons- arya talks once while sick in book arya has black hair in book where was the fire spell brisingr?
