-A friend of mine... I cannot mention a name.
The book is kind of entertaining for a little while, despite the fact that the story ripped off a mix of Lord of the Rings and Star Wars, with forgettable characters and a lack of originality (The main character's name was the word "Dragon" with the first letter changed. Go figure). It really showed that it was written by a teenager. The plot is easily predictable but it's fine for when you just want a easy, slightly shoddy book to read.
The film is bad. Lifeless and at times a bit silly, the best thing in it is the visual effects. And, of course, the same flaws in the story of the book.
The game is terrible. You cannot upgrade anything, change anything and it's so repetitive I think I actually lost a lot of my brain cells from it. The graphics are rivaled only by video games of the cretaceous period.
Give the book a try if you really want to.
Avoid the film.
Buy the game and burn it to rid the world of this abomination.
