Dragons Blood for the Sega Dreamcast is a action-packed adventure game. Choosing from two different warriors it’s your job to save the kingdom. This is a fantasy world full of all kinds of nastiness that tries to come in-between you and your goals. This game has a great atmosphere that draws you into the game world and keeps you there.

Graphically, this game is impressive. The attention to detail helps create a solid and believable environment. The control method is natural and works extremely well. The ability to strafe is a welcome addition to the gameplay. You can circle your enemies while constantly facing them, which is necessary to avoid damage. By linking your moves together you can create devastating combinations of attacks to wipe out all those who oppose you.

It’s the combat system that makes this game shine. You need to use your shield to parry attacks and then quickly counter-attack. Things start to get difficult when facing more than one enemy at once. It suddenly becomes a good idea to roll out of the way and try to gain a tactical advantage. By collecting ‘Wisps’ you can learn new skills that will help you make progress through the game.

Dragons Blood is a huge game spread over fifteen levels that will take quite a while to complete. If you like exploration, puzzle solving and fast-paced combat, this is the game for you.
