Having completed this game 100%, I have to say that I am still in two minds about it, with some aspects of the game that I really like, and some aspects that I really don't!

The game starts in story mode, where you play as either a boy called Hiccup, or a girl called Astrid. You have one dragon who you are taught to care for and train, and then you enter the first of 4 tournaments, where you battle your dragon against other opponents. Winning against the leader of the tournament will allow you to pick and train another dragon, and move onto the next tournament.

Ultimately there are four tournaments that you have to win, followed by a final championship which you must win to complete the game.

Between tournaments you capture and train dragons, run errands for the people in the village, complete tasks such as finding missing items, and catch chickens and farm gardens to get food to feed your dragon. There is also the opportunity to fight against other vikings in 'wild fights', and challenges that you can play with your dragon, earning extra experience points. You can also unlock an 'arcade' mode, where you can fight other dragons without having to play as part of the story, or against a second player if you have someone to play against.

So, good points and bad points:

- Overall I loved the story mode, running around catching chickens and running errands was very pokemon esque (also a little like zelda), where you could run around the village to your hearts content.

- Training the dragons itself was a little tedious.

Im not qualified to write this so this review is the words of my 8 year old son. he really likes it and said he likes the way it makes him think as he has to try and work it out as he goes along. He loved the film so this was a real treat he says!

Sarah's review is so good as far as the decription is concerned that I feel that I can't add anything of any worthwhile value in that department!

What I can do is comment on what I think about HTTYD as a purchase, and while I have played the game a little myself, it's going to be based largely on watching my primary-school-age children and their reactions to it.

Personally I found it strangely similar to other hand-to-hand combat games I've played before (years ago) although I can't put a name to what it reminds me of. What I quickly noticed was how easy it was to beat an opponent simply by repeatedly pressing the same button very quickly; true, this was probably in the beginner stage of the game and it would probably get a lot more difficult later on, but it didn't seem to require a great deal of skill.

But it's a child's game, rated at 7+, so what really matters is what the children think of it. I tend to gauge a game's worth not by what my children say but how often they play it, and there's just no doubt at all that this game doesn't have much 'staying power' compared to others we have such as Eye-Pet or Little Big Planet (1 and 2). Or even Singstar. Those games are fantastic value when judged in terms of how much playtime they get. HTTYD is going to have a short shelf-life I fear, indeed I'm already having to prompt one or other of my children to play it, to remind them that it's their newest game and that they should be playing it. It might appeal more to boys than girls as there is surely an element of aggression and violence to this game, so with my children both being girls this could explain their lukewarm reaction to it.

In summary I think this is quite a good game, and not very original in concept. Don't expect long-term repeat usage, so best to get the lowest price you can to get value for money. Definitely NOT a 'must-have' for PS3 gamers but not a waste of money - we've had worse than this.

Okay, I am 24 and my housemate is 19, we are way over 7 but we are totally addicted to the game. I love the fact that the dragons are so highly customisable and the colours in the game are so beautiful. The characters are cute and many items can be collected. These items such as wild meat, chicken, carrots, sulphur and rubies may be mixed and transformed into something else. You can own up to 4 dragons and it's fun grinding wild missions and training. This is the best PS3 RPG ever!

My 9 year old daughter liked the game, but my advice to you is to buy it only if it is cheap enough as I can't see long-term fun.

- The basis of the game is a one-on-one dragon fight. That is only one type of activity and long-term fun is unlikely.
- Players can customize their dragons. My daughter likes that.
- To go on with the fights you have to do a lot of tasks that are not really challenging, so you spend a lot of time with uninteresing tasks just to prepare your dragon for the real playing activity: fights. May be for small kids (6 years old) those tasks, like hunting chickens or harvesting carrots, may have the right difficulty to be fun.

So, in my opinion this is not the best game in the world, but small kids can have fun with it for a few days.
