Summary: When I bought this game I paid roughly $50-$60 and I was hoping to get a lot of variety in game play. The minigames were kind of challenging, but the game overall left much to be desired. It was very simple and the graphics were not that great. I think an 8 year old would be able to finish this game in a matter of a few hours.
Summary: My daughter and I have played the game so much (altering the rules when it starts to get dull) that we have worn the wings off some of the dragons but we still get it out on those rainy, don't-want-to-get-out-of-the-house days.
Summary: In this game, you go on missions to collect treasure back from dragons, capture and re-locate them, or take pictures. Along the way you have to gather supplies, potions and samples. You must also learn to take care of captured dragons by feeding them, playing with them and getting them to trust you as a caretaker. The manor house stores all of your collected dragon artifacts and also stores information gathered about the individual dragon species that you encounter.
Summary: I think this was designed for the young or young ar heart but if your imagination yearns for the reality of dragons you will probably enjoy this title. The graphics are far better than I would have expected for this title. The game play is a series of fairly well thought out activities (not really mini-games) that one must carry out in order to catch, categorize and aide these dragons and it was well put together.
Summary: From my daughter's feedback, she really enjoys this game. I got her this game after she had read a lot of the dragonaolgy books (which she loves) sothe fat that she can now become part of it is great.

Summary: Dragonology is quite a simple game. The two main aspects of the game consist of going on dragonological missions around the world and restoring the health of a dragon at base camp. Both aspects of the game involve mini games. I found the world-wide mission mini-games a little repetitive after a while; there are only so many times you can clear bugs from a leaf with a stylus without becoming irritated by the lack of insect repellant.
Summary: I had no idea this game existed until about a week ago. Even as a child I've loved dragons and that has continued well into my teens, so a game about the great dragonology book series seem just to good to pass up. From the cover it looks alright, for the younger kids perhaps but that didn't stop me playing it.
