Eragon is a first-person role-playing video game developed by Stormfront Studios, a studio located in Sweden. It is set in a world where elves, humans, and high-fantasy creatures all exist in the same world. The game is largely similar to Final Fantasy Tactics, with the exception of many different characters (one of which is Sigmund the Redeemer, an important part of the story). The story follows the journey of a young man named Gabriel as he joins the Forgotten Army, a group of fighters who were once called by their king, to fight against the Lich King and his undead army. As one of the youngest members of this army, Gabriel has to learn about himself, about his friends, and about his own role within the larger scheme of things.
As with most video games based on the Final Fantasy series, Eragon features several different classes and races, each with its own strengths, weaknesses, abilities, and spells. The player can switch between several different classes and can use the ones he already has to boost his stats or find better ones for new fights or quests. Throughout most of the game, Gabriel will travel around trying to find others of his kind and other survivors. There is also a hidden item called the Corrupted Gem that will allow you to see the future and see the plans of the characters involved in your adventures. There are also several side quests to complete throughout the game as well, each revolving around a character in the main storyline.
As you progress through the game, you'll find that you'll be controlling much more than just one character. You'll take control of the entire Forgotten Army, and you'll have to battle your way through large amounts of enemy territory, as well as fight and kill special characters that are part of the storyline. The fighting is not particularly deep or long-winded, but it does have enough content to keep anyone interested. For those looking for a unique video game based on history and mythology, Eragon might be a good candidate. The game is available for both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 2. If you have an Xbox, you should look into downloading the beta version of the game for free right now.
