Dragons Lair - The Atari Times

Dragons Lair

Just a mini-review for now
by Gregory D. George

April 12, 2001
Does anyone remember when Dragon's Lair was first released in the arcades? It was heralded as the savior of the arcade game! Riiiiiggghhht! Nevertheless, I still pumped quarter after quarter (it was 50 cents ya know) into this game. Little did I know then that the movements I made were not in real time. Oh well.

This is nice conversion on the Jaguar, but the graphics and sounds are a bit grainy. Also, I don't remember having to play through the exact scene over and over until you get it right in the arcades. If you croaked, you played a different level if I remember correctly.

This game has it's moments, but don't expect to get much long lasting enjoyment from it. Once you've gone through it, you'll never play it again.
