Bruce Lee Story
by Matt Paprocki
|To determine whether or not Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story on the
Sega Game Gear is an accurate representation of Bruce Lee's life or a game that closely
follows the movie in which it is based, we here at Digital Press have whipped up
a simple quiz of yes or no questions. Please read the following questions carefully to
- Do you remember when Bruce Lee fought the 9 1/2 foot tall sailor man who threw chains at
- Do you recall how Bruce Lee had only 5 offensive moves at his disposal?
- When Bruce Lee was filming "The Big Boss," do you remember when he had to
dodge moving saw blades and punch massive ice blocks onto his enemies?
- Can you recall how all of Bruce Lee's enemies followed simplistic patterns of running
left to right, consistently walking right past Bruce without attacking?
- Remember when Bruce was having lunch with his wife and he was attacked by a rouge band
of ninjas and had to traverse the deadly port side, filled with spikes, pits and
- Can you recall the time Bruce's enemies, all skilled ninjas armed with throwing stars,
jumped into spike pits to their doom, unable to exit?
- Do you remember how Bruce couldn't get off any of his trademarked moves due to a pitiful
- Remember how all of Bruce Lee's movies never featured any music?
- At the end of "Big Boss," can you recall the seven foot tall karate champion
who tossed ice blocks at Bruce while constantly jumping to higher platforms?
- And finally, can you recall how Bruce Lee always wore baby blue pants with no shirt and
had no identifiable muscles?
All of the above situations occur in Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story. If you have
answered no to the above questions (which you should have), then you understand that
Dragon on the Sega Game Gear is a rather poor attempt at recreating the great martial
artists life. None of the actions in this game will seem to be familiar to any Bruce Lee
fan and they should quickly come to the assumption that Acclaim was abusing the license.
Thank you for your time in completing our quiz. Have a pleasant day. -Digital Press
