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!
I heard many of the bad reviews too and I was worried that this would be yet another disappointing game. Despite getting used to the flawed control system, I have enjoyed every minute of this game. It's a challenge, but very enjoyable. Definitely a sight to see in 1080p!
