Dragon's Lair 3D Review

IGN Entertainment
9 February 2008
  • Conclusion: The old people agree: Dragon’s Lair 3D is fun to play. It’s also a nice recreation of the original. Despite quirky camera issues and really, really weird things in the game (like…square nipples and monkey noises), Dragon’s Lair 3D manages to be an intense platformer with a somewhat monotonous premise. Execution was extremely professional and it shows. A fan of the original would love this one—just make sure they can hold the Xbox controller.

Dragon's Lair 3D

Into Liquid Sky
6 October 2004
  • Excerpt: In 1983, Don Bluth (whose animation studios have given movie-goers the likes of The Secret of Nimh and An American Tail ) brought to the arcades their own interactive animated movie in the form of Dragon's Lair . For more than the cost of a normal game, players were treated to a Don Bluth animated feature in which they had to hit a button in time to avoid the numerous traps.
  • Pros: Strong in Dragon's Lair nostalgia, Easy to get into
  • Cons: Plain looking graphics, Overly simple gameplay, Lots of cheap deaths

  • Excerpt: A first glance, it seems that developer Dragonstone had all the right ingredients to achieve this. The visuals are astounding, bringing the animated look of the laser disc original under the control of the player with skillful use of cel shading. The audio includes all of Dirk’s trademark Eeps! Erks! and Wahs! Along with the sultry voice of Princess Daphne.

The Gamers Temple
17 June 2004
  • Excerpt: If you were hanging out in arcades in the 80s, then you are almost certainly familiar with the original Dragon's Lair game.  The gameplay was simplistic, just a sequence of timed movements of the game's joystick, but its animated graphics were far superior to anything else available at the time.

  • Excerpt: The more things change, the more they stay the same. The original Dragon's Lair was released in 1983 by the people who created such films as "An American Tale" and "All Dogs Go to Heaven". As the first laser disc video game, it was akin to an interactive, animated movie, which gamers lined up around city blocks to play. Player input was minimal and occurred only in precisely-defined moments, but was an amazing sight to watch.

Game Over Online
8 January 2003
  • Excerpt: But it is his second finest hour, maybe third if you include Dragon’s Lair 2: Time Warp – anyway, when you consider the horrible (S)NES games, Dragon’s Lair on the Xbox is something of a godsend. No, wait, maybe this is his fourth or fifth finest hour, I forgot about the multiple Dragon’s Lair ports on the Sega CD, CD-I, 3DO, etc, -- ok, ok, Dragon’s Lair 3D isn’t that great – fine, this game sucks.

  • Conclusion: > If you were playing arcade games in the early 80's, surely Dragon's Lair holds a place in your fondest videogame memories.  As a stand alone action game, DL3D is just above average.  If you throw in nostalgia, then it becomes a must buy.

  • Conclusion: Was bleibt ist eine schön anzusehende Grafikdemo, die vor allem von ihrem Namen lebt, und somit dem Original näher kommt, als Ubi Soft wahrscheinlich beabsichtigt hat.
