How to Train Your Dragon adventures from home!

We've not yet been lucky enough to see the How To Train Your Dragon movie, I debated and debated about taking Connor to the theater to see it as he's a huge fan of dragons in general but in the end decided he's still just not quite ready enough to sit still long enough to see a full movie in public. We have however been playing the How To Train your Dragon game on the 360 and Wii as of late.

Both versions of the game on the 360 and Wii are very simular other than the controllers as though you end up with a little more movements required to play the Wii version in many ways the Wii version is the simpler of the two to play especially for younger players as you can get away completing the fighting sequences by just shaking the controler and hitting buttons like mad but I'm getting ahead of myself here.

How to Train your Dragon is very simular to the pokemon type games as there are basically two aspects of play. Choosing a dragon down to customizing it the way you want and then caring for the dragon by feeding and giving him attention. This is honestly my favorite part of the game as I'm one of those crazy farming game lovers and I really enjoy the challenge of getting my dragon to full stars. You end up having to complete mini games to get all the resources you need to take care of you dragon and I would be absolutely fine with the game if this is all that was involved. As well as taking care of your dragons you can compete in tournaments to gain experience and unlock more "story" parts of the game that involve a lot of exploring.

The tournaments are fun and again remind me a lot of a pokemon type battle. Though both the Wii and 360's fight sequences are pretty much the same if you are dealing with a younger player the Wii version in many ways is the better way to go as you can really accomplish a lot with the Wii controller by just really moving the controller around like mad and pushing buttons. Not saying you wont loose a ton of matches that way, but if push comes to shove not a ton of skill is needed to accomplish the battles if you have a little patience.

Though I'm sure many people love the exploring and story line sequences of this game I really was not interested all I wanted to do was get back to caring for my dragon and battling. Maybe once I've seen the movie and understand more of the storyline my attitude will change but then again that's just my play style.
