I found the controls a lot of fun. Only problem I have found in steering the dragon is that the flick for the 180 doesn't always work on the first try.
The graphics are of mixed quality. The dragons and the scenery look awesome. Only problem is some of the enemies don't look great. The Individual men on the ground are fairly pixelated and are an eyesore on my HDTV. Strange thing is that they look much better one you land the dragon.
There are a few problems such as the ceiling in the sky that you will bounce off of if you fly too high. And as a person who plays video games to play and not sit back and watch some crummy story, I find the excellent CGI in the cut scenes is a waste of space on the disk, but for the people out there who play games for the stories, it will be pleasantly surprising.
Everything you could want in a dragon game. Eating people, mid air wrestling with other dragons and fireballs. Definitely worth renting.
This game is a sign that PS3 may not go the way of the Saturn and Dreamcast after all.
This game is incredible, and the flight system was done right. Having flown many different games using the controllers, the six axis flight system they did is great, it has a learning curve, but is incredible.
The cinematic takedowns when you hit the dragons right are incredible, the graphics are beautiful, and it has a great story line. I didnt stop playing this game for almost 8 hours. The game is challenging but is something you can do. It was done right, and is a true accomplishment. I believe that most of the poor ratings are coming from the fact they want to fly it with the thumb sticks, but using the actual control is incredible. I love Dragons, so I admit i am a little pro the game anyways, but in an honest review, the game as a whole. Is Great!
The game was very good. The controls yes, sadly get really frustrating and are hard to get used to. Don't get fooled by the other reviews because the only other bad thing in the game is whenever you attack a dragon, one of the battle types is to line up on the side of him and smack him by using the contoller. OMG>>>>SUCKS!
