Die Musik finde ich rattenscharf, ebenso wie einige der leider wenigen Soundeffekte, doch die Spiel-Atmosphäre kommt im richtigen Augenblick sehr gut rüber, ohne aufdringlich zu wirken.

Dragonriders ist ein schönes Rollenspiel für zwischendurch, durch technische Mängel leider auch nicht mehr als das.

Dragonriders is hardly a terrible game, but it has its share of issues and won't appeal to a large group of gamers. It's not without a potential audience, though--fans of adventure games or of the Dragonriders books (and especially of both) will surely want to check it out, and its sub-$20 price tag might expand its audience a bit as well. If nothing else, it's nice to see that some developers are still brave enough to make adventure games, so Dragonriders at least gets credit for that.
Maybe I was expecting too much but I still feel this is half a game. Sometimes you just can't port pure imagination.

Dragon Riders : Chronicles of Pern ne parvient pas à retranscrire l'ampleur de l'aventure qui est décrite dans la Ballade de Pern. La quête manque de souffle et traîne en longueur, et les nombreux défauts de gameplay et de réalisation ne facilitent guère l'immersion dans le jeu.

Dragon Riders - Chronicles of Pern isn't without a few merits. As mentioned above, the story is interesting and the voices have good character. Additionally, I really like the experience system; by accomplishing certain deeds, you'll increase your strength, knowledge, and reputation. By increasing these basic attributes, you'll be able to move heavy objects, talk to powerful computer characters, and gain notoriety as an honorable warrior. I also like how you have to learn skills before you can actually use a sword, sneak around, or even scribe in your journal. Still, the good points are totally outnumbered and suffocated by the huge flaws and even the most ardent fan of Anne McCaffrey will suffer through Dragon Riders - Chronicles Of Pern. My suggestion: grab one of her numerous novels and use your imagination. It's certainly better than suffering through the "Thread" of flaws that even dragon breath can't erase.

In an industry choked with halfway decent adventure titles, how did anyone manage to put a slipshod package like this together?
