C'est la moins réussie des versions. La réalisation est correcte, mais l'animation saccade trop. Le pad GC est mal utilisé. Reste de la blaste étonnante.

Reign of Fire is a good game and is worth at least a rental. The game will provide challenge even the most hardcore gamers. You should pick it up at least to experience how many dragons come at you and what you do in response. It's crazy and I love it. If you enjoyed the movie, you'll enjoy the game. There are plenty of extra features including movie clips and Mad at Gravity's Walk Away music video.

Die beiden analogen Sticks des Controllers zu besiegen, ist eine größere Herausforderung als der Kampf mit den Drachen. Die Steuerung der Urzeitviecher geht zwar etwas leichter von der Hand, frustriert aber immer noch. Unfertig wirkt auch die Präsentation. Simple Suchen-und-zerstören-Missionen ziehen sich durchs Spiel. Grafisch hat der Titel allerdings was auf dem Kasten. Schöne Partikeleffekte sowie gut modellierte Fahrzeuge und Drachen machen was her. Insgesamt aber enttäuscht Reign of Fire völlig.

(PAL version)
Die mangelhafte Steuerung kritisierten wir ja schon in unserem Test der US-Version in der letzten Ausgabe. Daran hat sich auch mit der PAL-Fassung nichts geändert. Die Buggys, Lastwagen, Pick-ups und Panzer der Menschenkampagne steuern sich viel zu störrisch, als dass die Drachenjagd Spaß machen könnte. Hinzu kommt, dass es Entwickler Kuju Entertainment versäumt hat, dem Spiel etwas Abwechslung zu verpassen. Die Programmierer hätten sich ruhig enger an die Zelluloidvorlage halten können. Dort wäre sicher noch einiges zu holen gewesen.

Deaf Gamers (6.5 out of 10) (65%)

What is good about Reign of Fire though is the support for deaf gamers. Apart from the FMV, which is unsubtitled, the speech is fully subtitled at the bottom of the screen and because there is always plenty of action going on, the developers put little markers by the person who is talking, which I thought was a nice touch. Deaf gamers should have very few problems with Reign of Fire.

GameZone (6.3 out of 10) (63%)

Overall, there are some things here which may appeal to a lot of you action buffs out there, and all negative things removed … the combat itself either as human or dragon can get pretty intense at times and no one can say that there are quiet moments to this game. Ultimately, the frustrating control, repetitive gameplay, and average graphics will not appeal to a lot of folks and will quickly kill a good time … even for heavy action fans (me included), and I would definitely recommend renting this game prior to purchasing, even for that younger dragon fan on your list.

IGN (6 out of 10) (60%)

For a publisher looking for movie licenses, Reign of Fire is theoretically a perfect choice. It's got everything: A clear battle between two distinct foes -- brutally fierce, fire-breathing dragons, and a rag-tag group of post-apocalypse military rednecks angry, desperate and armed with enough fire-power to make a difference. But despite the Mad Max hints of outlaw tragedy, the movie Reign of Fire went down in flames. The game fares only a little better.

Video Game Critic, The (C) (50%)

Reign of Fire lacks polish however, causing my mood to alternate between excitement and aggitation. The difficulty of the missions is wildly uneven - some are incredibly hard while others require little effort. The frame rate gets a little rough when things get hectic, and the load times are easily the longest I've seen on the GameCube. Clips from the movie are interspersed with the stages. Despite its lack of polish however, Reign of Fire's visually compelling action is exciting enough to keep you coming back for more.

Nintendo Le Magazine Officiel (3 out of 10) (30%)

De plus, le titre est injouable, répétitif et pas très joli à regarder. Ajoutons que les temps de chargement sont hyper-longs. Quant aux cinématiques tirées du film, mieux vaut un bon DVD ! Bref, ce jeu nous chauffe au lieu de nous enflammer...
