Eragon has some exciting moments, but they are overshadowed by frustrating controls and tedious level designs.

The ability to control a dragon so freely, and with so much power, has not been had from a previous handheld release.

Much of the experience is hampered by shoddy control, and the mission objectives could use more variety. The multiplayer aspect provides plenty of entertainment, though.
