Game Boyz

  • Excerpt: Activision has seemingly cornered the market on movie based games. I cannot count how many of these types of games I have reviewed over the years. Some have been entertaining, but overall I have learned to keep my expectations realistic and take the game for what it is worth. It is unfortunate that many movie based games arrive on store shelves rushed, full of glitches, and unfinished.

True achievements

  • Conclusion: It's doable, but ridiculous. The game is also fairly one dimensional (mash buttons, win battles) and it gets really old. The higher ratio is due to sheer boredom, not necessarily difficulty. I don't absolutely hate the game, but it's not a great game either. 2 stars, if that. What a way to ruin a fun and magical movie.

Gamer vision

  • Excerpt: I really, really enjoyed the Dreamworks film How to Train Your Dragon. Critics did, too - it's actually one of the highest rated feature films of 2010. Because of this, and because of my girlfriend's love for dragons, I figured reviewing Activision's video game adaptation of the film would be a harmless endeavor. Boy, was I wrong.

The Armchair Empire

  • Conclusion: from what I could tell, my son became almost entirely oblivious to the world around him. "I'm going to smash the TV with a hammer and you're going to bed without dinner if you don't turn this game off right now." No response. "Son, your mom and I have decided that military school would be best," I said. "It's in Tuktoyaktuk." "Okay, dad," and keeps on playing. Snapping him out of the trance is easy though. The batteries in the controller have to die sometime.

WorthPlaying
25 April 2010
  • Summary: Based on the book by Cressida Cowell, How to Train Your Dragon has you play as Hiccup, a Viking teenager who doesn't exactly fit in with his tribes longstanding tradition of heroic dragon slayers. Hiccup's world is turned upside-down when he encounters a dragon that challenges him and his fellow Vikings to see the world from an entirely different point of view.

How To Train Your Dragon review (X360)

HonestGamers
23 April 2010
  • Excerpt: As you spend time outside of the arena with your dragon, whether that be training in the cave or playing mini-games that you have unlocked at a distant cave, your over-sized pet will grow weary. That can quickly impact its performance, so you have to scrounge up grub to feed the beast so that he will trust you and fight his best on your behalf.

  • Excerpt: Funny thing about videogames based on movies is that there's nothing funny about how much they suck. How to Train Your Dragon distinguishes itself by sucking less than expected.

  • Excerpt: Fight fire with fire and then fetch stuff How to Train Your Dragon, or for the purpose of this review HTTYD, was an interesting film. The trailer failed to inspire and it looked nothing more than a 3D cash in but instead it ended up being one of the best animations in decades. It melded action with emotion, humour with suspense, and looked gorgeous even if you didn’t have those 3D specs on.

  • Excerpt: Death, taxes, and videogame tie-ins are just a few of the certainties in life, so it should come as a surprise to absolutely nobody that we see a game tie-in for the recently released DreamWorks title How to Train Your Dragon.  Activision and For those who have seen the DreamWorks film, the first thing that will stick out about How to Train Your Dragon is just how well In true RPG-lite fashion, you There are a total of four tournaments in the game, each progressively...
