Very good game, but a few things to keep in mind before buying this game:
1. It's nothing but quick time events, so you're not really controlling where he goes, meaning no exploration
2. This was originally an arcade game, so you can beat the game in half an hour
3. There are different difficulties and the original arcade mode to play, so it has replayability.

Don't buy the game if you want a long game to fill your time.
Buy the game if you want a quick thing to play, and enjoy classic animations and arcade games

This game relives the old Laserdisk Classic Arcade games - especially Dragon's Lair. This is just exactly like the original but whats more remarkable is the achievements and the options that is suited for newcomers who never played this game, before they were born.

While I enjoyed my time with the game, the gameplay itself (obviously no secret for a game released in 1983) is like any quick time event sequence in today's games. It's great to see game design hasn't progressed one bit, but this will only appeal to retro fans or Dragon's Lair fanatics. I'm in the former category and there is a lot to like here with multiple difficulties (and helper features) available, different sequences with Home and Arcade modes, and the animation still holds up very well. Unlimited continues does take some of the challenge out of the game

If you are a Dragon's Lair fan, get it. This is an almost perfect reproduction. (Controller support?)
If you are a retro gamer, get it. This is beautiful video gaming history.
If you are a modern gamer, pass. There's nothing for you here.

Brings a feeling of nostalgia when playing it. It's fun to play and exciting to watch even when you're not playing! The graphics are still gritty like they were in the 80's and the colors aren't remastered, but I think that's for the best, making the nostalgia of it come to life. It's fast paced, fun to play and I love it. If you didn't grow up with it or don't have family members who grew up with it, it may be hard to get into, but I'd say give it a try and see what you think! You could be wishing you grew up in the 80's or throwing your computer through the wall...Honestly, It's not for everyone, but for me, it was a must-have!

This game is a pure acrade classic from the 80's. If you were born in the 70's early 80's, you probably know this game well. The game ab♥♥♥♥ely brought me back to those days, it was very well done. Short game overall, but the $4.99 price was well worth the 30-60 min of nostalgia plus anytime I play again for fun.
