How to Train Your Dragon 2 

 

I loved How to Train Your Dragon on the Playstation 3 (PS3). Flying around the island, training the dragons, landing when I came near the ground, all kinds of different activities, and characters from the movie made it one fun movie based video game. My excitement level to review How to Train Your Dragon 2 on the 3DS was in the clouds.

My first experience with How to Train Your Dragon 2 was the controls. I move the joystick left and my dragon (Toothless) goes left. I press it to the right and we go to the right. I press up, and we go down. I press down and we go up. This confused me so badly that I had to get help finding where the options were. Why? So I could fix the up and down.

I then started going through tutorial levels. There are a variety of different flying mini games we can do. Like flying through rings, racing others flying through rings, shooting things, picking up sheep and dropping them in a target, and more. There are also tokens hidden all over the island, and challenges.

How to Train Your Dragon 2 taught me to be careful when flying close to the ground. I could knock my dragon rider off, and watching him helicopter spin away in a very stiff pose. Appropriate sound bytes would play when I did this. The same thing happened when I did something good like actually fly through a ring, or collect a token.

How to Train Your Dragon 2 looks meh. How to Train Your Dragon 2 on the 3DS is scaled way down from the home console versions. I got a headache after lengthy game play sessions. How to Train Your Dragon 2 treats water just like the ground.

How to Train Your Dragon 2 requires constant adjustments when flying. In How to Train Your Dragon I could fly level and straight without any adjustments. I feel that How to Train Your Dragon 2 is a step down from the original How to Train Your Dragon video game. I miss being able to land anywhere. I miss going under water. I miss stable cameras - the one in How to Train Your Dragon 2 spun around when I did those quick turns.
