Parents need to know that How to Train Your Dragon is the video game tie-in for the Hollywood film of the same name, and that kids who see the movie or play the game will likely be drawn to the other as well. The game’s primary action is similar to that of a typical fighting game, with two characters (in this case dragons) fighting to reduce each other’s health bars by using complicated combination attacks involving slashes and flaming breath. It’s not nearly as graphic as most fighters -- there is no blood or gore, and the combatants don’t die at the end of a match -- but the dragons do make contact and recoil from hits. Note, too, that here is a conflicted message in that our heroes are supposed to care about the animals they keep but have no qualms pitting them in vicious battles against one another. The game supports dragon fighting tournaments against a friend sharing the same screen.
