In a post-apocalyptic world, humans and dragons fight for survival. Humans are armed with heavy weaponry, dragons are blessed with unlimited firepower. Who will win? You decide.

Given the prerogative to fight for either race, you will come face to face with a formidable enemy. As a human, you're a slow-moving target, outmanoeuvred by your fire-breathing enemies. But conversely, as flying beast, your super-size body mass makes you easy to spot and a simple target for a heat-seeking missile.

Effectively two games in one, Reign of Fire accurately represents the behaviour and movement of both an army of gun-wielding troops and an armada of dragons. Okay, nobody actually knows how a dragon would fly or it would feel to fly one, but there's something that just feels right.

Without hesitation, Reign of Fire throws its players into the middle of a fiery battle where you must master the ins and outs of armoured vehicles, weaponry and the occasional bout of ignited gas. Each mission takes place in futuristic locations such as a decimated London, and comes with a variety of objectives and targets that must be met to progress further. Whether you survive or not, failure to meet your objectives results in Game Over.

The best advice we can give is to be vigilant, leave no stone unturned, collect all available ammo (you're gonna need it) and practice your targeting skills. It's sound advice, and you'll do well to take it on board. Either way, it's a good tale of good versus evil and vice versa. Enjoy.
