Summary: I liked how it was back on the Atari but it seems too diffrent on Microsoft Xbox. It's not the same anymore. It's easier and it's just diffrent I can't explain it. I think this classic shouldn't be messed with. Nor should it be on any present consoles or handhelds. The original game I give a 8.00.
Is Gameinformer really that ignorant of the past??!!!

Summary: My score is in defense of the original game. GI said its ' the same awful experience it was 30 years ago' is what caught my eye. You have to put this stuff in context of the times; 30 years ago this game was considered AWESOME, and still is in some ways. Dragon's Lair was HUGE back in the day for a reason: It was fun, exciting, and its production value were amazing for the time If anyone wants the a dead on version to the laser disk one, get the blu ray version that...
Summary: Growing up Dragon's Lair was one of those games you would see at the arcade and drool over as you stood there mesmerized by the smooth and inviting animation Don Bluth so masterfully created. Experiencing an epic adventure and getting to jump into the shoes of Dirk as you play through a booby trapped castle seemed like a no brainer.
