Take one savvy, fiery-redhead, add one dragon with a pinch of kidnapped brother and you have Drakan: Order of the Flame. You
play Rynn, a fierce warrior woman with attitude, who has been bound to Arohk, a large red dragon. Together, Rynn and Arohk
must journey throughout the land of Drakan to save Rynn's kidnapped younger brother and perhaps all of Drakan.
Played in the third person perspective, Drakan: Order of the Flame lets you soar to the skies as Arohk (with Rynn on board) and
allows you to explore the finer crevices and features of the landscape as Rynn. Rynn has over 50 different weapons at her disposal
for hand-to-hand combat, while Arohk has six different dragon attacks and seven magic spells for aerial combat. The conversion
from ground exploration as Rynn to aerial flight as Arohk is seamless, requiring nothing more than Rynn jumping on Arohk's back.
Regarding multi-player support, Drakan: Order of the Flame will have over 11 unique multi-player levels and support for up to
eight players to engage in non-stop combat.
Drakan: Order of the Flame was in development for more than three years. The original plans for the title had only the aerial
aspect, with Arohk, until the development team realized combining Rynn's ground exploration would bring much to the title. Rynn
adds a new aspect to the game, interacting with over 25 NPCs and solving puzzles to gain both magical and ordinary (but much
needed) items. Rynn also somehow manages to, shall we say, "make an impression" on the chainmail covering her torso -- the
height of killer fashions!
The game is slightly reminiscent of both Tomb Raider and, perhaps, a dash of Flight Unlimited. Drakan is two games in one,
seamlessly stitched together. The dragon flight is quick and fluid and offers a unique style of gameplay with acrobatic maneuvers
and thrilling aerial combat.
Drakan: Order of the Flame should appeal to a wide range of game players. While the "fast-twitch" gamer will enjoy the hack and
slash style of Rynn and the quick flight of Arohk, the more laid-back gamer will appreciate the puzzles and intellectual challenges
that made series' like Tomb Raider exciting.
