I'm not sure what it is about Eragon that has drawn me to the movie and to the game ... maybe it's the idea behind it. The movie was 'ok' - nothing great. I was perhaps a little let down and I knew something was wrong when I started looking for more and more Star Wars references during the film. However, I still was looking forward to playing the game.
The game is pretty much like the movie: it's nothing great but you're not going to look at it and say it's a real stinker. It's just average, like the movie. If you LIKED the movie you will probably really enjoy the game.
The 'finishing' moves had a camera that reminded me of God of War, but I'll be honest: this is no where near as fun. The levels are relatively easy and if you're just looking for a game that you can experience and get through, it's not bad. The levels that you fly around on the dragon are not that great though, I spent more time with them in some ways but that was just out of frustration.
Overall, I'd give this one a 6.5 out of 10.
