What Gamespot Users have to say about Drakan: The Ancients' Gates

  • Rating:8.5

    Sweet game, almost ruined by unfair air battles.

    When the original Drakan was released in 1999 it was an original and an impressive game that made my P200 32MB Voodoo 2 pc sweat, but somewhere in the midway I lost interest and never completed it. I didn't expect mu... Read Full Review

    A great sequel to an innovative first game. Come on, you kill people with a DRAGON!

    If you happened to have picked up the first Drakan for PC some years back, you will have a taste of what Drakan: The Ancients Gates will have in store for you. Of course, Rynn returns with her faithful red dragon. How... Read Full Review

    Simply addictive

    The worlds, the characters, the dragon. Still relevant. PLEASE make one more!! I have played it some many times and different ways. One can be just Rynn shooting bow and arrow or swing a sword or using magic or doin... Read Full Review

    It is up to you once again to save the world of Drakan.

    Drakan: The Ancients' Gates is an 'alright' game. I would strongly recommend the first game, Drakan: Order of the Flame, instead though. The three most disappointing aspects of this game for me would probably have to be:... Read Full Review

    One of, if not the greatest Dragon Game ever!

    I first heard about DtAG from a special that was on TV in 2000. I didn't play the first game until after I'd finished this one but I can safely say that you don't need to play them in order to appreciate them. Drakan ... Read Full Review

    A great game lots of fun !!!

    A wonderful game. I have loved this game for years and play it over and over. A fun game that gets more fun each time you play it. It is a bit older and not thought of any more really but worth getting and playing. Y... Read Full Review

    Good game almost ruined by a poor ending

    The first 90% of this game is good medieval action adventure, taking on a variety of foes, hacking them to death, using the gold you get to buy better weapons and magic. I stayed up until midnight on several occasions t... Read Full Review

    This is a decent action fantasy game. If you like action fantasy games you may enjoy this one.

    The storyline in Drakan: the Ancients Gates is about a warrior women named Rynn and her Drakan Arokh who have been called to be sent on a quest. Jassad and his desert lords are trying to take over the civilization of the... Read Full Review

    really really pathetic

    My sister bought me this game because I love dragons, but the beginning (in the swamp level) is so annoying for words, without real clues where to go, clumsy controls, and even when you give all your money to potions, it... Read Full Review

    Grows on you, worth the playing.

    Just plain fun. I'm playing with it in 2007, five years after the game release. It looks old, chuppy, few flaws; but it's really fun and I must say Cool. The story copies Draco movies plot, you're linked with a loud spea... Read Full Review
