DreamWorks Dragons: Legends of the Nine Realms
This is great for How to Train your Dragons fans, we have had films, TV Series, and Games, but now we are exploring much more of the Lore of the Dragons. This is a great way to explore new characters and different Dragons if we remember from the Films and Games, there are lots more Dragons. This Action adventure, with a third-person top-down game, is about Thunder trying to reunite with his family but discovering and helping other dragons on his way.

What we think of the DreamWorks Dragons: Legends of the Nine Realms game
Visually the game is beautiful with different zones to make your way through the game, though they might feel pretty similar with the top-down, third-person view, old school hack and slash angle, it does differently from different zones visually. The puzzles and Enemies though are ultimately pretty similar, however, depending on what dragon you use this came makes this easier. Speaking of which, as you go through the game you unlock 3 more dragons which you can switch at any time, this is a very hack-and-slash way of playing and works very well.
With these dragons you can slowly unlock and improve their abilities, this allows you to customise your dragons a bit more but at the very least make them stronger and different. Being a Hack and slash-type game it is using a lot of the same moves and buttons but that’s fine, and kids will find this easier to use than perhaps long complicated moves or building up damage etc like MMOs/RPGs etc.
Piglet found this is all pretty easy to get on with, she’s 7 and not new to Games but still this style of action, Hack and Slash are different, she quickly understood the buttons and as she went through using those different dragons. A good and bad thing is you almost constantly have commentary from our storyteller, it’s good because the Dragons don’t speak, so you need to explain what’s happening, but it’s bad because personally, it’s got a little irritating lol.

I actually think this is pretty good, many other games and more adventure base, collecting, and puzzles, and this has this as well, but the choice of old-school hack and Slash is limited out there in games, so this gives a good break and something different. As I said visually and sound it’s solid, the gameplay is simple enough but still good, with unlocks and different dragons you can be a little bit more creative and challenging but ultimately fans of the franchise will enjoy this. Kids of 12 plus may find this quick and easy but for kids less than that, it’s a good entry-level into these games for the future.
