Very Good

Surprisingly Good

For the most part I play these pixar/dreamworks games for the trophies and I don't expect much from them. Most of the time, even if I enjoyed the movie, the game just disappoints. I'm happy to say that How to Train My Dragon was a fun exception to the rule.

The world feels real and as full as it was when I first encountered it in the movie. The graphics over all are very good, both in battle and when your running around.

The variety in the dragons is also well organized. Each type of dragon has its own specialty (speed, strength, fire, power, or endurance) and you also are able to change the look of your dragon drastically, to completely make it your own.

The game is made up of three basic areas. There is the town, where all the tournaments and main story quests begin, the training area where you train your dragon and earn exp in order to be a competitive champion, and lastly there is the wilds where you can complete dragon challenges and also fight in wild fights to earn legendary dragons.

The challenges are fun and also pretty challenging, but not to the point where you don't even want to do them. The only thing about the game that I didn't like was the training, which was very tedious and repetitive, especially because you would have to start from the beginning of he training with every new dragon. It was the most time consuming part of the game and not fun at all.

Overall, I strongly recommend this game as a fun and easy game, for when your getting tired of playing those frustratingly impossible games.

The overall game was fair. My 6 year old and I enjoyed it, the game takes place after the movie so hopefully you seen the movie before renting. If not. Doesn't matter it doesn't follow ANY of the movie story plot/line. Shame. Was fun and easy for my 6 year old to play we both enjoyed it. Graphics 6, Gameplay 5, Storyline 3

Well, the characters are the same, the voices are the same (or at least real close) so all in all I liked it. Simple to play, cute fun game. It can get a little boring though. Back and forth, collect plants and food, train your dragon, collect, train, collect, train. I know, that's the name but I was hoping for a bit more action and a little less running. If you liked the movie then you'll prolly like the game.
