Summary: As a long time Dragon Booster fan, I was excited to see the Dragon Booster game, even more so for the DS. The game lives up to the fast-paced excitement of dragon racing within the TV series. Though it is more challenging as you progress through the games, it's entertaining at the same time. I mean, you can really push other dragons/riders off the track! Or, be pushed off yourself! I really enjoy being able to play through with different dragons.
Summary: You must use your stylus to control the racing in this game. As a result, your right hand must constantly hit the screen with the stylus. I predict that in more demanding level/races you have to move real fast. I cannot do this with my right hand accurately. The one redeeming quality of the game are the upgrades and interaction with the racer/dragon.

When I borrowed this game at blockbusters I knew straight after I started it up that I was not in for miracles but a more time consuming and bug filled venture. The thing that kept me going on this game was its brilliant musicals and sound score but apart from this I fell out of love with this game VERY FAST. The television show was based on racing but the boring ...
