4.0 out of 5 stars Daring to be Dirk? 11 Jun 2004
From it's inception, this game was always going to be a dual edged sword.
One one hand it has to live up to the beautiful artwork and animation of Don Bluth's arcade "game" and on the other hand in these days of massivly complex and immersive games it has to deliver a proper; solid gameplay experience in order for it to be crediable.
So - take (arguably) the best looking game ever and make it a good enough gameplay experience that it stands up against modern remakes like Prince of Persia: Sands of Time and Ninja gaiden(XBOX). Too tall a task...? well, probably yes. Dragons lair 3D does an admirable job of taking an almost interactive cartoon and retaining it's graphical identity and humour and replacing the shoddy "interactive gameplay" of the laser disk origional and giving it a solid, if not breath taking, game mechanism.
It was always going to be a little bit too much to ask for, but what we have in Dragons Lair 3D is a very good stab at doing an arcade classic some justice and it provides us with an enjoyable if not particularly taxing game that retains the spirit of its parent.
Hopefully Dragons Lair 3D 2 (if it ever gets made) will deliver more of a game, and less of a restoration project.

4.0 out of 5 stars return to the lair . . . 31 July 2004
By John S
In the early 80's a game was released onto an unsespecting public that was at the time revolutionary. Many of us will remember Dragons Lair as being quirky, cutting-edge, and impossibly hard!! Best described as an interactive cartoon the game starred the hapless Dirk the Daring who was on a quest to resuce the voluptuous Princess Daphne from the clutches of the evil wizard Mordroc and Singe the Dragon. The game pitted Dirk against fiendishly cunning traps and involved the player making snap decisions and reacting accordingly. Timing was everything and sudden death happened far too frequently, usually accompanied by a humourous animation depicting the gory demise.
The game was just asking to be released on consoles but its taken 20yrs for Dragon Stone to do the honours and do just that. The developers have gone to great pains to recreate the look and feel of the original coin-op, and it shows. Don Bluth who drew the original artwork was integral to the process and the game looks amazing. The cel shaded graphics look great and if you're lucky enough to have HDTV it looks even better. Fans of the original will recognise a lot of the foes, rooms, of which there are about 240, and traps that Dirk faces. Sound effects are good too with a full orchestra score which provides a rousing soundtrack to Dirks escapades. However it has to be said that the voice of Daphne has to rank as one of the most annoying you have ever heard. Luckily you can switch the voice off and get subtitle hints instead.
You have complete control of Dirk in a 3-D environment who can sneak, run, jump, climb, swing and roll his way from one room to the next. The puzzles arent too taxing although some take some practice to get through. Combat is fairly frequent and Dirk has the ability to hack, slash and block his opponents.

4.0 out of 5 stars Return to the Lair!! 20 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase
This is a great nostalgia trip for anyone who played the arcade classic or the home computer 8 bit versions of the game back in the 80's. This time you have full control over Dirk the Daring and the game improves on the 30 levels of the arcade game with 250 treacherous castle chambers!! The game is one of the best looking games to appear on the xbox and has a great sound track as well. Improvements I would have liked to see would of been the inclusion of the flying horse, whirlpools & rapids & the Mud monsters levels from the arcade game. Children also enjoy playing the game so it's not just for old gamers. Of all the Dragons Lair games I have played this is easily the best.
