Very Good

Surprisingly interesting

My nephews commented that this was a bit like World of Warcraft for kids. You run around collecting ingredients for food in the main town, talking to town folk to figure out your mission. You earn and train dragons in both battles and minigames. Some fights are harder than others which can frustrate younger ones. You must take care of your dragons health and sometimes retrieve them. You unlock customizable items that makes each dragon unique and have a full spectrum pallet to choose from to color the different parts. Over all this game kept my 12 year old nephew very interested for a long time. My 10 year old didn't enjoy how much he had to battle but liked the rest of the game.

This game is amazing, but as the title reads (that is if you CAN read it, JK) training stinks. Doing each session once is OK, but reapeating them 4 times is a ... shouldn't say it in case of kids reading. Bottom line, training stinks, and thats what you have to do to level up your stats. Train. PizzaFreak out.

Good

Decent cross-genre game

This is a pretty fun cross-genre game, mixing elements of RPGs and fighting games into one. You get to level up your dragon through mini games and training in fighting and fire. Leveling up allows you to increase your dragons' abilities. In story mode, you can have up to 4 dragons in your stable. Each dragon type has different possible statistics, some excel at fighting while others excel at speed or fire.

My only real complaint is the mini games get monotonous. Finishing them all for one dragon isn't bad, but if you want to max out all four dragons, you'll find yourself getting bored. It would have been nice if the training at least was unique for each dragon, but while the moves are executed differently by each dragon, the training sessions end up being the same.

Story mode seems somewhat short, but due to all the training/mini games, it'll take you some time to complete. I'm at 55% after 7 hours.

This title is definitely worth a rent, perhaps worth a buy if you enjoy fighting games, as there is a versus mode in addition to the story mode. Overall, a pretty well done game, better than many that are on the Wii.
