Just like the movie, Berk in the game is a fascinating place with a visual extravagance of its interesting nooks and corners. Fans of the “How to Train Your Dragon” franchise will definitely be impressed with this game!

Where else can you live with the adorable fire-breathing monsters (monsters, really?!) but in the island of Berk?

If you’ve played the game, you’ll know what I'm talking about! The high resolution and advanced graphics in the game are a joy to watch.
