Into Liquid Sky
6 June 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 .
  • 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!

  • 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".

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Conclusion: Si vous êtes attentif, et que, comme on vous l'a appris à l'école primaire, vous lisez tous les mots d'un texte, et non un sur deux, vous aurez décelé que la durée de vie n'est pas forcément mirobolante. Huit heures de jeu seront nécessaires pour voir les crédits de fin.
  • Pros: graphiquement plutôt vide, quelques ratés dans la jouabilité, pas de sous-titre pendant les -rares - cinématiques et le making-of, nerfs vendus séparément, trop court
  • Cons: humour, le style graphique, la variété des situations, le prix
