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. Enter the Dragon became a huge success and Bruce Lee finally achieved the super star status he had longed for in the U.S.A. My point being, Enter the Dragon became the martial arts movie ALL martial arts movies are compared to, even to this day.
Excerpt: Quest of the Dragon is like Bruce Lee's many movies, where he, the moral man, enters into the honorable world of martial arts but is forced to confront dishonorable opponents who choose to be immoral. 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.
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.
Excerpt: When it was first shown, Bruce Lee: Quest of the Dragon was something of a showpiece for the power of the Xbox. However, somewhere between last year's E3 demo and its release things fell apart. While I have seen worse, Quest does nothing to show what the Xbox is capable of. Abysmal lighting effects, boring environments, jerky animation - if it can go wrong in Quest , it probably does. I think my sister's boyfriend summed it up best when he said 'It just looks too plain'.
Excerpt: Manden for hvem hånden er et dødbringende våben, er endelig tilbage i sit eget computerspil. Når man tager i betragtning, hvor populær Bruce Lee har været på film, kan man kun undre sig over, hvorfor der har været så få spil med ham i hovedrollen. Men lad os se bort fra dette skuffende faktum og i stedet nyde at Bruce Lee nu kan opleves i virtuel udgave på din Xbox!
