Excerpt: Legend of the Dragon is a fighting game from Game Factory that's based on a cartoon that currently airs on Toon Disney as part of its Jetix programming block. It's about a pair of 15-year-old twins, Ang and Ling, who are on opposite sides of a martial-arts-themed conflict involving humans that can transform into beastlike creatures.
Pros: Offers a variety of single-player modes
Cons: Awful fighting system, Does a terrible job of duplicating the cartoon's look and feel, Uninteresting opponents
Conclusion: Because of the game's dull fighting system that doesn't play well against the computer-controlled opponents or against a live human being, it seems almost impossible to have fun with Legend of the Dragon. When you factor in the total lack of detail in the attempt to mimic the cartoon's look and feel, you're left with a game that even diehard fans of the relatively obscure cartoon will probably hate. Do yourself a favor and keep your distance.
Pros: Offers a variety of single-player modes.
Cons: Awful fighting system, Does a terrible job of duplicating the cartoon's look and feel, Uninteresting opponents.
Excerpt: It would be reasonable to assume that cartoons would make for good video games. But for whatever reason, much like attempting to translate other television shows or movies into games, we rarely get a quality production.
