Go To

Eragon, the first book in the Inheritance Cycle, spawned a movie, which in turn spawned a game. Different versions of the game were released for Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, Xbox, Microsoft Windows, Nintendo DS, PlayStation Portable, Game Boy Advance, and mobile phones.

This game provides examples of:

  • Adaptation Distillation: Just about everything from the movie and a lot of stuff from the book, which the movie cut, is here. This includes Eragon's fight with Arya.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Eragon saves Brom several times, including a Ra'zaac attacking Brom. Saphira saves them both quite a bit. The first three Saphira levels are her Big Damn Heroes Moments. Brom jumps in front of an attack Durza is doing, which kills him.
  • Chekhov's Gun: There is a magic statue in Carvahall. Of course players who don't know what it is (read: just about everyone on their first playthrough) will soon forget about it.
  • Samus Is a Girl: Eragon doesn't find out Saphira's gender until he kills his first Kull.
  • Sheathe Your Sword: Played with. When Farthen Dur is under attack, to advance in the game you have to run away.
