I of the Dragon

Game Over Online
5 January 2005
  • Excerpt: When I reviewed Primal Software’s Besieger six months ago, I questioned why the Russian developer even bothered. The game wasn’t very interesting, and it didn’t offer anything new. Such is not the case with Primal’s second game, I of the Dragon (also called The I of the Dragon , which makes me wonder if the title is a translation gaffe).

  • Excerpt: Questing against dragons is common enough. But The Wargamer’s Kyle Stegerwald tries his hand at role-playing one.

Expert Review

The Wargamer

  • Excerpt: The dragon is one of the most enduring symbols of fantasy: a mystical, powerful beast that takes wing over the landscape and whose fire breath more often than not roasts a party of foolhardy adventurers in their boots. I’ve fought my share of dragons in games like Baldur’s Gate and Neverwinter Nights, but how many times have I played as the dragon? None, until now.

The I of the Dragon

GamersHell.com
21 December 2004
  • Excerpt: RPGs have long been made into “human kills monsters to save humans” very rarely do you see “monster kills monsters to save people” in fact that just sounds weird. Maybe that’s why it hasn’t been done too much, off the top of my head I can’t think of any RPG that set you as a beast saving people from beasts perhaps I’m getting old are haven’t played enough RPGs but that’s besides the point.

I of the Dragon Review

GameSpot
19 November 2004
  • Summary: I of the Dragon has some short-term appeal, but over time it makes you feel like a glorified exterminator, tediously eliminating an endless stream of generic monsters for no real reason.
  • Pros: N/A

I of the Dragon

The Gamers Temple
12 November 2004
  • Excerpt: I of the Dragon is different from other action-RPG games in that instead of slaying dragons you actually become one. Wouldn’t it be fantastic to swoop through the air, shooting hot blasts of fire at your enemies? It certainly would, because you won’t find any of that in this game.

I of the Dragon

The Armchair Empire

  • Conclusion: everyone ignored the omens until it was too late and huge armies of monsters would soon be bearing down on them. In comes our dragon hero, upon whose shoulders falls the responsibility of sending the beasts back to wherever they came from. Doing this will take the form of an action-RPG as players have to develop their dragon from a somewhat scrawny thing to a powerful, imposing creature.

The I of the Dragon - Review (PC)

Konsolen-World
3 April 2005
  • Conclusion: Mit The I of the Dragon wird sich jeder Spieler schnell anfreunden können. Der Einstieg wird durch ein Tutorial sehr leicht gemacht und falls man doch einmal Hilfe braucht, kann man immer noch auf ein gutes Handbuch zurückgreifen. Die Story ist dann ebenso ansprechend wie die Rollenspielelemente. Dadurch wird ein Gameplay erschaffen was wirklich Spaß macht. Ist man erst einmal so richtig in das Spiel eingetaucht lässt es einen nicht mehr los.

  • Summary: „The I of the Dragon“ ist ein gelungenes Action-Rollenspiel, welches jedoch unter einer schwachen Steuerung, zu simpel ablaufenden Vorgängen (Bau von Städten, fressen) und einem fehlenden Multiplayer-Modus leidet. Das Szenario ist voller Fantasie, kann die besagten Kritikpunkte jedoch nicht ausgleichen. Dennoch würde ich den Titel allen Action-Rollenspiel-Fans und Fans von Drachen empfehlen.
