Why the Dragons Should Eat This Game

  1. The game is basically a remaster of Superman 64.
    • Most of the game you are required to fly through rings, either on a time limit like Superman 64 or while racing against other Viking dragon riders. Flying through rings is not fun by itself. Also, the rings are smaller than the dragons so you need precision movement to move through the rings.
  2. The characters are completely unbalanced. Choosing Hiccup, the main character of the franchise, is setting yourself for failure because Toothless is far too slow to compete in the races, and most of the events in the tournaments are race events so you will lose the competitions. Choosing Snotlout who rides Hookfang makes the racing events possible as Hookfang goes very fast, possibly the fastest of the dragons.
    • By the way Toothless is depicted as being faster than Hookfang in the series. Hookfang is not supposed to be faster than a Night Fury, let alone dramatically faster as shown in the game.
  3. When you fly straight down or up the movement controls switch suddenly. Normally moving left or right turns the dragon in that direction, however when you're flying straight down or up the controls switch so that moving left or right rotates the dragon.
  4. Since the controls are mapped to the dragon's angle instead of the camera angle the flying controls can suddenly reverse if the dragon rotates while diving or flips upside down while taking a sharp turn most likely knocking the dragon in the wrong direction.
  5. The five tournaments all use the same five events in the same exact order, however, each tournament has an additional thing that makes the difficulty increase.
  6. The "Viking Blitz" attack mechanic is broken. Enemies can use the Viking Blitz attack to knock you off the dragon without using an item. You are also supposed to be able to do so, but the prompt that tells you how to do it only shows up for a split second, and pressing the button shown in the prompt does not actually perform the Viking Blitz attack.
  7. The racing events in the later tournaments are impossible to win unless you gain a huge lead immediately at the start of the race- enemies constantly knock you off the dragon.
  8. Hiccup's voice is very annoying to listen to, compared to the film this game was based on.
  9. Terrible and ugly graphics that look like a PlayStation 2, Xbox, or GameCube game, to rub salt to the wound, this game was released in 2014, and 2014 had way better graphics in games that are family-friendly like Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker and Sonic Lost World.
  10. No story to speak of and no ending upon finishing the last level.
