Dragon Kingdom review

Build a great kingdom, and fight to protect it in this nation-building game.

Dragon Kingdom is a fun, nation-building simulator with amazing graphics, but it can get very old, very quickly. The game uses an obvious formula that anyone who has played a similar Facebook-oriented game will catch on to in no time. Still, the game's incredibly charming look and feel, combined with a very active -- if challenging -- contingent of users, will keep a lot of gamers pleased.

This game makes you the king of an ancient land where you'll have to frequently fight off hordes of invading dragons, as well as other players. You do this by building and improving your resources, completing quests and achieving higher levels, just like you would in other timed games. Like its ilk, Dragon Kingdom will give you notifications when you're done building or upgrading a resource, so you always know when to check in. The game's sign-up was closed when we tested it, so we had to log in with our Facebook account to gain access. Be careful when you do this, as the game will try to post to your page and access your friends' list if left unchecked. The game only lets you pick a username that is six letters or less, so all of the real words are taken. Most of the game's players are at very high levels, making combat difficult.

It's tough to get into the game, but many people will be hooked once they play. Dragon Warfare has some very addictive qualities to it, and backs them up with some seriously impressive graphics. Some gamers will be turned off by its repetitive, Farmville-like play style, though.
