<i>Eragon</i> cast reprise roles for game

Sienna Guillory, Robert Carlyle, Garrett Hedlund, Edward Speleers lend voices, likenesses to Sierra's fantasy game.

Robert Carlyle in Trainspotting.

At this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo, Sierra Entertainment announced that it was publishing a game based on the 20th Century Fox film Eragon. However, it was only today that the company revealed what most had anticipated--the film's cast members will provide the voices and likenesses for their digital counterparts.

Four actors from the film will reprise their big-screen roles in the action game. Newcomer Edward Speleers plays the title character who befriends a dragon and in turn becomes the last in a long line of dragon-riding knights. Sienna Guillory (Resident Evil: Apocalypse), Garrett Hedlund (Troy), and Robert Carlyle (Trainspotting) will also be featured in the game.

Eragon will be released on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, Xbox, Game Boy Advance, PlayStation Portable, DS, and PC on November 14, about one month before the film hits theaters. The game is rated T for Teen, except the GBA version, which is rated E10+ for Everyone 10 and Older. For more information, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.

The kid starting writing the book at 15. Thats about when most of you where figuring out what it meant to kiss a girl or trying to memorize the Konami Contra code! The book is a fun book but it does have its flaws. The movie however... they completely changed the story and took it a diffrent direction. It isn't even similar by the end.

Sorry, but the book is shallow, derivative crap, and no wonder - it was written by a kid. I'll say this again, but no 17 year old can write such stories well. Being smart isn't enough - you need life experience to set the tone of a story.

The book tries to be LOTR, the movie is among the worst ever made, and the game is the most complete failure of them all. Yay for plagiarism!

Who cares??? This game is terrible, and the movie only wants to be like LOTR. Too bad they both fall way short of expectations.

Usually games based off good movies are bad, but what about a game based off an absolutely terrible movie like Eragon?

I'm still amazed how far published plagiarism can get... Especially when it's not well written...

the only complaint i have so far about the game is that you can only fight kull(greater urgals) in the xbox 360 version even though during the battle and fleeing to the varden eragon must fight a few hundred.

The book was great. The film will probably be okay. The game will suck.

I hope for Eragon to be at least a good game, as for the movie I hope it will be very successful so they can make Eldest and part 3 into a films too.

Ugh. That book is absolutely shocking. Poorly written, disgustingly laced with cliche's... like Bryce Courtenay's books (I wrote an essay about how poor his style is and got an A yay :D) I just don't understand why that series is so popular. As a side note, before anyone tries to bash me about my comments (if anyone at all), I have read both of the books that are currently released, or in Australia anyway. I don;t know if the third is out anywhere else, but regardless I don't intend to read it.

The picture above that goes along with this article is probably what many gamers will look like if they get this game as a christmas present. I'd rather have a lump of coal.

''I think they got it wrong. I believe they mean DECEMBER 14.'' The game comes out on the 14th of November, not the movie.

The books are great, but I have no faith in the industry to make a compelling game out of a movie. It just doesn't happen.

Well I guess thats good the book was good the movie should be too. But almost all games made to go along with the Movie turn out to be weak yet they sell well.
