Summary

Drakan: The Ancients' Gates ROCKS!

The Good

Excellent gameplay. A storyline-guided adventure; interacting with game characters gives you hints and quests to help you on the way to game completion. Opponent difficulty increases throughout the game; improved armour and weapons become available as needed. So Rynn, the main character, is a bit of a Lara Croft clone... So what? Everyone likes Lara Croft anyway. And.. There's nothing like flying on a dragon, shooting spells from your hands or weapons, or taking on a monster ten times your size.

The Bad

NOTHING!

The Bottom Line

Sexy, lively, well-paced adventure with wonderful graphics, a great landscape and a good sense of humour. It's almost as much fun to watch someone play this game as it is to play it yourself.
