Eragon

Playstation Illustrated
31 March 2007
  • Excerpt: Eragon comes to us from Vivendi Games, and crafted by Stormfront Studios, makers of the eerily similar Lord of the Rings: The Twin Towers for multiple platforms back in Fall 2002. The game itself is based upon the novel by Christopher Paolini, from the popular Inheritance Trilogy.

11 December 2006
  • Conclusion: Both as an action adventure game, and a licensed work, Eragon comes across as substandard in just about every way imaginable. It feels like an unfinished game that was rushed through to release in time for the movie to appear in theaters.
  • Pros: Some of the magic attacks are fun to use at first.
  • Cons: Combat is extremely repetitive and tedious, Poor hit detection, buggy artificial intelligence, frustrating camera angles, The game is short and has very little replay value, Local multiplayer only, no online play, Ugly character models, jerky animations, and an all-around lackluster presentation.

  • Conclusion: Eragon is a cynic’s delight. Half-finished film tie-ins are rushed out to coincide with the other merchandise releases but always, always squander the potential of what could be a good game by cutting corners everywhere, leaving you with a mess of a game.
  • Pros: There’s a dragon, …it looks a bit like Lord of the Rings
  • Cons: It’s not a very good dragon, It certainly ‘aint Lord of the Rings, Simple gameplay, Flawed graphics, Rubbish camera

DarkZero
9 January 2007
  • Excerpt: Recently there have a few interesting, and dare I say borderline playable movie to game tie-ins, but unfortunately Eragon feels like a big step back in the wrong direction. It is a game basically made to promote the movie – on top of that it also feels like a very rushed work, offers little to no...
