Eragon is the classic tale of a boy and his dragon out to right the wrongs in a kingdom that has fallen under the reign of an evil tyrant king--at least that's what I gather from the DS version, as I've never read the books or seen the recent film that...

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is essentially Eragon in a nutshell. Not exactly a lot. I managed to conquer the mighty challenge in about 8 hours. Sadly, the best thing I can say about the experience is that it wasn't unpleasant and was rarely...

Eragon review for the DS


The tragic dragon.

Moody music

Not enough dragon riding!; Dull scenery; Pointless quests; Brain dead enemies

In a brazen attempt to cash in on this year's lackluster movie about giant lizards and the men who love them, Sierra has created Eragon games for every platform you can think of. Considering only about twelve people who saw the movie actually liked it,...

I've been writing for GamingNexus for a little over two years now, and in that time I've never before been asked to review the same title on two different platforms. I really didn't expect much from movie tie-in games, but I guess I'm lucky in a way...

Eragon - Review


Eragon the video game for the Nintendo DS is based on the feature film and New York Times bestselling book of the same name. I have not read the book and at the moment I am writing this review the movie has yet to be released. I can say that I knew of...

Eragon should probably be played only by those who are already fans of the source material as those who aren't will be confused at times and would have more fun elsewhere.

Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles -- Ring of Fates


Square's 2003 role-playing game makes its DS debut with wireless support for up to four adventurers. As in the GameCube original, notable for its use of the Game Boy Advance as a controller, the world in Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles is enshrouded in

With the theatrical release of Eragon, based on Christopher Paolini's novel by the same name, being only weeks away, Vivendi Games has released a handful of titles for the consoles and handhelds based on the fantasy film. Will Eragon please fans of the...

All in all, it is easy to see that the Nintendo DS version of Eragon has its share of flaws. If you are a hardcore fan of the book or the movie, then you might be able to find some enjoyment out of the game, but anyone else may want to steer clear of...

Here be no monster

Yes, despite being based on a mediocre fantasy film (itself based on a planned trilogy of mediocre books), the DS version of the game is actually pretty good

Eragon (DS) review


Just like eating salt-and-vinegar razor blades

Strip away the bland colour palate and crappy textures and the 3D environments are okay.

Great Price. Good to-the-door service at a reasonable cost/time. Thanks.

Bought this for my son for his DS. Was an out of the normal request and off market game (not being advertised anymore). Really glad Newegg had it and at a decent price

None. He loves it
