Summary: I just threw away $10. I know that is not a lot, but I usually don't just drop a tenner into the waste basket. There is not enough time to complete the desired actions, sometimes the arrows blend in the background, and sometimes even if I did do the action in time, it didn't matter. God I'm irritated.
Summary: Dragon's Lair's game play was designed back in the days when computer graphics were in their infancy. What it did was give you the only way to have stunning graphics, by hand drawing them out as a cartoon. This left no "free choice" for the game players' movement, but instead relied on timed joystick movement or pushing a single button. If successful in your timing the cut-scenes would play out in a semi- continuous way until the end of the story.
Summary: Worth it for the nostalgia. I never got very far on this game when it was out in the arcade - didn't have that many quarters! Came across it while perusing the XBOX arcade games with my 6 year old and after playing the trial decided to buy and try to finish it. Love the animation style of Bluth & Co. and it definitely brings back the 80's feel.

Summary: Dragon's Lair is a classic game of the 80s, which was played in Arcades, is actually an interactive cartoon, where the objective is to control the protagonist, a knight named Dirk through various scenarios for the final attempt to rescue Princess Daphne. It was a great success at the time (83) and was known for its difficulty, which is transmitted to the Xbox 360 - the difference is that here, instead of getting lost countless arcade tokens, here you can play until the...
Summary: Dragon's Lair is a forever classic, i recomend for the new and old school gamers! The only bad point is the very short time to finish the history, but is great. Dirky is so nice on the Xbox 360, enjoy!
Excerpt: Dragon’s Lair es un juego que en su día tuvo enorme éxito, sin dejar de ser todo un clásico. Un game un tanto peculiar que al menos en la colección de El Mundo aparecía como Dibujos Animados Interactivos. Juego creado por Digital Leisure, los personajes fueron creados por Don Bluth. En él encarnaremos a un héroe, y simplemente nos darán unas opciones a elegir: esquivar, atacar, etc.
Pros: Son dibujos, por lo que no tiene el problema de los juegos 3D .
Excerpt: Voila un jeu Game Boy tres peu connu, un des premiers à etre sortis. Pourtant, c'est à tort que ce jeu est méconnu. Tout dedans reflete la perfection : Des graphismes sublimes (Les meilleurs sur cette console ?!), des animations parfaites, des musiques excellentes, et une aventure vraiment prenante.
