To enjoy Eragon pretty much requires that you've either read and enjoyed the book, or watched and enjoyed the movie. In spite of a design that tries to convey the plot, the story comes across as a secondary design component with insufficient explanation for series newbies. If you aren't familiar with Eragon, the gaming experience is a bland RPG, but it can be a reasonably fun time for those who enjoyed the source material. At the very least, Eragon is tolerable, bug-free, and does not try to stuff the console versions into the tiny, low-power package of the GBA, thereby producing a distinct experience by licensed game standards. Even though I did not find Eragon for the GBA to be exceptionally enjoyable, I sincerely hope that it does well so that we can start seeing more companies take this route when it's sorely needed (X-Men: The Last Stand for DS and Splinter Cell: Double Agent for Wii, I'm looking at you).
