Un top ! Des détails qui tuent, une animation au poil et une action parfaitement rythmée. La jouabilité est intuitive.

Reign of Fire seems to have all the elements of a spectacular game, unfortunately not all of them came to fruition. It seems the developers tried to pack it full of too many goodies, which is not a bad thing, but may have left them with little time to perfect the most important of all; control. With that being said, the control issue is a temporary setback, as you will become extremely agile in little time, and if you stick with it, Reign of Fire can offer some real fun filled entertainment and spectacular visuals.

Reign of Fire is one of those games I wanted to like more than I did. I truly believe that all sorts of cool dragon games could be made, but that few have really nailed it. The closest one, to me, was Drakan: The Ancients' Gates, which was more of an action-adventure game that included a dragon. Bam's game is unfortunate in a couple of ways. First, the movie didn't light up the box offices, which means that most people are going to think that the game is just like the movie. And while I find it hard to entirely dispute that, if you can bear through the human missions, you may very well enjoy the dragon missions. But the linear missions, oftentimes frustrating controls and general dreariness of the gameplay, which makes it all feel more like chore than entertainment, may prevent you from that entirely.

In the end, Reign of Fire has its share of fun moments but unfortunately these moments are few and ruined by the awkward controls that make driving and shooting an aggravating experience. If you loved the exciting action and thrills seen in the movie, this game will be something of a disappointment. This is still a recommended rental.

Bam! Entertainment's tie-in to the Matthew McConaughey lizard-shragging opus drags you through two lackluster campaigns, comprised of seven missions each, in which you'll play as either a truck-driving dragon -slayer or a fire-belching 'zard. And while the potential for a dope game is undeniably present, repetitious missions and cumbersome controls pilot Reign of Fire headfirst in the dirt.

GameSpot (4.9 out of 10) (49%)

Reign of Fire for the Xbox is based on the 2002's summer film by the same name, starring Matthew McConaughey and Christian Bale. The plot centered on the concept of modern man pitted against fire breathing dragons that have become the dominant species on Earth. The movie was unremarkable, and its sometimes striking visuals were offset by a flat plot. This game is then a logical successor, as it follows well in those same footprints. It's not terrible, and sports some good graphics if nothing else. But ultimately, a number of glaring flaws keep it from being an enjoyable gaming experience.
