Discuss Drakan Series Here!
http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh106/amber_long/Drakan.jpg

Has anyone played the two Drakan games before? I believe the first one is called Drakan: Order of the Flames and the second is called Drakan: The Ancients' Gates.

I personally have only played the second one, but those who have played it have to agree it was one of the best adventure RPGs ever made :D.

Do you think they will release a third game for the series? I mean they did leave us with a message at the end basically saying this isn't the last game in the series... well where is it?? It's been almost 7 years since The Ancients' Gates came out, and I'm still a big fan of Drakan; it's just one of those "must play" games, imho. :)

Wohoo :D I LOVE Drakan :tmb: I have only played Order of the Flames...it's so awesome! I was totally addicted to it to be honest XD And I haven't played Ancients' Gates yet :( But i'd love to.

I played a demo of it and I played that demo like a million times I loved it. Don't know why I never bought it. They should make another one and keep the characters, but sort of start fresh with the story. It would be amazing with current gen graphics :cln:

I absolutely adored Drakan: the Ancient's Gates. It was so fun! For awhile I heard rumors of 3 coming out when ps3 came out....but not so far. And then there was supposed to be an online version....

Anyway, for some sort of Drakan fix... http://www.planetdrakan.com/

It always reminded me of a more "medieval" version of Tomb Raider. Rynn always did have similar qualities to Lara, and she looked like her too! :)

I've played Drakken 2 and think it's great. Considering it came out on the PS2 quite early on, it's nicely put together and the graphics are pretty good too. It's a reasonable length too, and I like that you can decide to focus on becoming good with a sword, bow or spells. I always go for the swords (I can be quite a hack 'n slasher with the right game :D), but I keep promising myself that one day I'll play this and focus on becoming good at spell casting instead.

I like the guy who sells her weapons too. He says funny things along the lines of, "There you go my little bloodthirsty killer" which tickle me.

I always got a kick out of Arok.

Rynn: "Arok!"
Arok: "I'm right here!" That one always makes me giggle....He says it like is purely frustrated with Rynn.

Arok: "I'm coming." As in Geeze, hold your horses.


Did you ever play to get the giant chicken? That thing was wild. I should play again....I finished everything but did it in the wrong order...there's an additional level if you play it correctly...near the giant chicken (way past the mines - you'll need Arok to get you there). I think if you kill the chicken first, the gate is closed to this level.

Really? Never heard of this. I would replay it but sadly.. it was one of the many PS2 games I had to sell to get enough money for a 360 :( It was so hard to sell it too, that was literally my all time favorite game next to Tomb Raider.

Yes, got the Giant Chicken... but never heard of this other level. What order do you have to play to get it?

Was looking at the games they made and the developers of Drakan sure haven't made a lot of games. They also don't do very well, but they don't do bad they seem to get 7s. Although I disagree cause Drakan deserves a 9 at least.
Again I say they need to make a third drakan for new consoles and make it amazing.
BLF that render is amazing :cln:

I've had Ancients' Gates since it came out, finished it many times, and love it to bits. :D Been to the Tree of Mourning, Ravenshold, Shiverbane, Stratosphere, everywhere. Even completed all the side missions. The landscapes are so beautiful and it's a true fantasy game. I love Rynn because she's tough, elegant, and speaks well in it.

I loved Drakan: Order of the Flame, too. :tmb:
It's one of my favourites games beside Tomb Raider.
Unfortunately I wasn't able to play Ancients' Gates, because I haven't a PS2. :(
But I'm still hoping there will be a continuation for PC someday...

Well, since I didn't get it when I played that area towards the end, it's obviously not at that time. :tea:

After the Shadowmire swamp, if you go to the southeastern end of Surdana with Arok - past the chicken (don't kill it yet) and a little east - it should be open. It's not too far from the chicken if I recall - there's a cave near a river I think (it's been years since I played!) and in the cave there is a doorway. It's blocked by a wooden gate if you can't access it, and when you can, it should be open. There area a bunch of wartoks in the area.

Wow, never heard of this game...but you all seem to love it (considering you all said "I love/adore it") :eek:

Is it old? Which is its genre? Story? Gameplay hours? It seems to be a must.

You play a Lara-esque female lead with both combat & magical skills. She also has a companion in the form of a dragon which you can take to the skies on at any point & it is great!:D The whole kingdom is almost one lare free roaming world which you explore on foot as well as in the air on the back of the dragon.:)

I own the PS2 game, Drakan The Ancients Gate which was released way back in 2002 I think. It's a game with lots of action, charm & adventure which I would fully recommend even though it's quite an old title now!;)

Thank you Kiss-Bite! :tmb: It seems its my kind of game, Ill try to get it somehow. My last resource is a friend of mine who should have it (hes such a collectionist).

Ive watched some Youtube videos too and, even if graphics are not the best, the game seems quite fun and original :)

I LOOVEED Drakan. But i don't know which one I played, It was the one with her little brother. And I got to chop up the enemies like beefcakes. :jmp: :D teeheee. :cln:

It was one of the most magical games I ever played. This game showed me the fun of flying in the open airs on a dragon's back. :o :jmp: :yah:

I'd love a next-gen Drakan.
I played the Ancients Gates years ago when it came out - actually I rented it over and over again until I finished it, before buying it years later.
I had so much fun on it, it's quite a big world to explore and get all the treasures and weapons.
:hug:
