The problem with Dragon's Lair is that thanks to the beautiful Don Bluth animation it was always more fun to watch someone else play it than actually do so yourself.  The game arrives on the Mega-CD and the video is full screen, but the reduced colour level seem to take away that certain something that made Dragon's Lair so special.  CD access times are very slightly slow, but not enough to impede gameplay as by the time the next clip is needed the decision has already been made - you survived or you didn't.  If you loved the laserdisc in the arcade it's all here - it's just not quite the same, and with nothing extra to keep you coming back for more once you've seen the end.  If you've never played Dragon's Lair, this title is an excellent piece of gaming history, and the MCD version is much easier than picking up a laserdisc - hunt one down.
