Dragon's Lair - Completed

Dragon’s Lair HD is a game for the serious nostalgia buff. If you know of the game then it needs no introduction. If you’re unfamiliar with it then more than likely it’s not for you. The novelty of “playing a cartoon” has worn off in the nearly quarter century since the game first appeared in arcades and the gameplay itself just hasn’t stood up to the test of time. 

This version of Dragon’s Lair has been remastered for HD and 5.1 sound, which makes it look and sound good although it still will appear as a 2D hand-animated cartoon. For gameplay graphics you have to give the edge to today’s game’s computer generated 3D graphics over hand-drawn cells. 

Dragon’s Lair’s gameplay just hasn’t aged very well. Playing Dragon’s Lair over and over again just doesn’t have the same appeal. This one is best left to the game’s true fans and collectors.
