Younger gamers who love the movie might enjoy the collection of flying games in How to Train Your Dragon 2. But, although soaring through the skies on a dragon's back can be fun -- whether you're racing or blasting fire against others -- the action gets tiring after a while. Add in long load times, clunky controls, and graphics that are a mixed bag at best, and it's hard to recommend this casual offering for fans of the film.

Some elements are worth calling out -- you get to choose your rider from the film, and there's decent voice acting and music, plus hidden quests and collectible tokens -- but this multi-platform game isn't worth much more than a weekend rental.
