As the player, you can choose to be Hiccup or Astrid and be plunged in the Viking world wherein you will have dragons of your own and take with you in one-on one combats. At the conclusion of the game, you will own four permanent dragons which can be used for tournaments. The training mode will warrant experience points which will take you to the dragon’s experience level individually. As a result of the level increase, the dragon will become tougher and more skilled in leading during fights. This is somehow interesting; however, there are things to be considered firsthand.

Primarily, the training is unexciting since it only involves a combination of fighting strategies repeating them many times against an adversary who does not fight back. There is also timing concerns together with the training. The monotony is carried over to the actual fights. When you are in the arena with your dragon, another dragon is present and then you fight. There will be a lot of obstructions from your rivals, thus, there will be a lot of times where you have to wait to do your attacks. But when you are able to defeat an opponent, the other dragon will not be harmed as it makes great effort in landing back to its feet.

After every tournament, you will return to the Viking village and be a human creature for some time. It is only during side quests that you will have good conversations with people. This is the next step in bringing you to another fight. You will have the chance to gather food such as plants and chickens for your dragon prior to its fight to enhance its fighting skills. There are also minigames available just like utilizing the fire breath of the dragon to engrave sculptures made of ice and also the presence of a fighting mode for two players. These, however, are not very striking.

If you have not seen the motion picture, you will find it hard to understanding the occurrences. With regard to the technical issues, the game load is very lengthy and the character has an ugly animation roaming around the Viking world. Frame rate drop can also be visible once you have turned the camera. During the dragon fights, there seems to be an unseen barrier between the fighters. You will swing at the rival and strike it, but in reality, there is no contact at all.

Although, How to Train Your Dragon in Xbox 360 is intended for kids, the entire game is just monotonous. The struggles are robotic and with no impact. In terms of the lasting appeal, the arcade mode is notable but not actually amazing in performance.
