Rating Summary:

This is an 'arena-fighting' role-playing game based on characters and events from the movie How to Train Your Dragon. Players are charged with raising and training their own dragons and participating in different activities: customizing the dragons' appearance, collecting food for the dragon, and fighting other dragons in one-on-one combat. This last-mentioned activity requires players to input various attack commands that make the dragon whip its tail, bite, claw-slash, or breathe fire. Essentially, it is real-time fighting in which dragons ram and swing at other dragons until health bars are depleted; snarling, jaw-snapping sounds, fire-roaring, thuds, and crashes accompany the frenetic (though fantastical) combat.
