"So what say you? Do you have what it takes to become a dragon trainer? If so, How to Train Your Dragon is right up your alley then. As a licensed title, it looks brilliant with lush colors and a unique fantasy setting that not many other games are approaching. There's a high level of depth packaged into How to Train Your Dragon that hasn't been seen in a licensed children's title for quite some time. The development team even has stat-tracking in four separate areas with dozens of stats categorized in each, so there's a lot of attention spent on longevity of the single-player campaign."
