The Good
Blazing Dragon features impressive, cartoon quality graphics, big name comedians doing the voice talents, plenty of point n' click graphic adventure-style puzzles and lots of British comedy, satire, innuendos and jabs. It is one of the few true graphic adventure games made for the Playstation 1.

The Bad
I was surprised that this game did not warrant a slightly higher rating from the Entertainment Software Ratings Board, in light of some of the game's jokes, puns and or innuendos. Just so you know, the humor is very much in the same vein as the Discworld or Simon the Sorcerer games or the Monty Python films. If that sort of humor does not click, then you may not appreciate much of the game's appeal.

The Bottom Line
Not many true graphic adventure games made their way onto the Sony Playstation 1. For one reason or another the entire genre does not seem to translate often onto the home console systems. Even if you are not familiar with the short lived cartoon series, Blazing Dragon is a wonderfully funny and intelligent British adventure game.
