Above Average

Monotanous, good graphics

Well the game has plenty of possibility, but it's a grind fest instead. The world is quite small overall and the combat styles are very similar with all creature types. Training the dragon is just grinding through the same events over and over. Basically this game probably would be great for it's target audience, but for some crazy reason I rented the game and for me it was a mindless waste of time. I'm 32, so don't take my game rating as something that should apply to your 10 year old, but as an adult, pass this one by.

The title is exactly what this game is... constantly training your 4 dragons to battle in 5 different tournaments. Easy enough for kids and trophy hunters, repetitive and boring enough to make you wish you didnt bother.

Horrible

Quite Possibly the Worst...

...game I have ever played in my life. I can't think of any game I have played that is worse in just about every aspect.

Specifics:

Audio (1/10): Repetative, the same songs and WOW the same dialogue from every character every time you ever talk to them.

Visual(2/10): The graphics look like a good Ps2 game. Not a huge factor in game enjoyment, but can lose a players attention after a while.

Gameplay(1/10): There are 2 areas to go to. The Village, and the little wild area outside the village. Thats it. The rest is challenges (5 challenges, 3 difficulties for each) and training (about 12 different training sessions, all of which you must complete 4 times by doing the same thing). This is the most redundant thing I've ever done.

Replay Value(0): Literally. None.

I got this to earn the trophies. They were easy, but that has nothing to do with how good the game is.

--If you're getting it for trophies, be prepared to be the most bored you've ever been in your life, except for that time when you were 10 and you had to sit and listen to your grandparents visit with everyone at a family gathering for 8 hours straight about how life used to be during the Depression.
