Bruce Lee: Quest of the Dragon Review
9 February 2008
Conclusion: Bruce Lee: Quest of the Dragon both insults the long lived myth of the martial arts master while glorifying him. Unfortunately, the game didn’t live up to the enormous hype it had created, but it’s still entertaining for a short period of time. The game is average. I suggest avoiding adding this game to a shopping cart unless you’re a Bruce Lee collector of some sort, or you’re taking out the trash.
Excerpt: In 1973, Enter the Dragon was the first time a major American studio (Warner Bros.) made a big budget martial arts movie. Up until then, movies involving the martial arts were cheesy low budget crap usually imported from Asia.

Having slain the leader of the Black Lotus criminal gang, Lee returns to seek solace in his family residence, troubled by his own actions and his past.
Conclusion: through Hong Kong, San Francisco, and London the Black Lotus terrorist organization who has kidnapped your scientist father to develop some type of super steroid chemical compound and also has stolen the Golden Relic, which holds many ancient martial arts secrets. His abduction is also revenge against Lee for killing Chai Wan, who happened to be the father of the Black Lotus’ new leader, Dragon Lady.
Excerpt: I've longtime been a fan of Jackie Chan and, more recently, Jet Li - martial artists who use their powers for good, albeit on the silver screen. He who started it all is no longer with us, but those who remember Bruce Lee will find his memory dishonored by Universal Interactive's Xbox game, Bruce Lee: Quest of the Dragon.
