Excerpt: Dragon Booster is an animated ABC Kids show about a futuristic civilization where humans and dragons coexist…and race for some reason. Regardless of how improbable it might seem, racing dragons sounds like it could be a decent premise for a video game. Apparently Konami thought so, at least, because it has published a racing game for the Nintendo DS based on the show. However, Dragon Booster the game is only a racing game in the most basic sense.
Pros: Good music
Cons: Boring gameplay doesn't feel like racing at all, Clunky and imprecise touch screen controls, Ugly graphics, Limited customization options

Excerpt: Il y a de cela quelques milliers d'années, une terrible guerre eut lieu entre diverses factions d'un monde fantastique, peuplé de dragons et d'hommes se respectant mutellement comme des frères de sang. Tout avait commencé par une course à la modernité, dans laquelle les humains et les créatures mythiques construisaient ensemble des machines fabuleuses pour le bien de tous.
