The price: 3 stars
Overall: 5 stars (I'll explain where the extra star come from)
A general complaint is that the features are too short. I may be wrong but I think the complaints come from the price-length ratio. My personal opinion, if this set were $3-5 dollars cheaper or if it has a few more features and a few less ads, I think we would have seen less complaints and a better rating.
Back to the contents, I think Book of Dragons and other extras are some nice gadgets that add to the original movie but Gift of the Night Fury is the real nice feature in this set. Gift of the Night Fury is around 20 mins long (not counting the end credits), so comparing to the more common 5 mins shorts, it is still a rather long short. The short is well made, the graphics are as good as the original movie and the story is interesting. I watched the short for two times and was not bored at all. I am glad that they included the animators' corner, which I could see that they really made effort to make the short good.
OK, here is why I give an extra star. Originally, I was going to give a 4-star but I then realized that Gift of the Night Fury may have given some implications about How to Train Your Dragon 2. At the end of the original movie, we had a 2-minute glimpse of how Berk was like after all the changes took place. In this short, we have a more complete view of the life on Berk "now" and how the characters are interacting. I see it as a even further development from the Legend of the BoneKnapper Dragon. Of course, it contains no hint for the storyline of the next movie. Nevertheless, it shows what probably will be the world or setting for the next movie. Can the next movie has the same general theme as the first? Yes, but it seems it will be way more exciting to have the themes different for every sequel (Toy Story type of approach)...OK, I am off topic.
Overall, I would say it is a 5-star for those who really like How to Train Your Dragon and really care about the second movie. Even though it is slightly pricy but so far I like what I got.
Book of Dragons:
This one was released first, so I'll review it first. I'll start off by saying that it was exactly what I expected. They went more into detail on the dragons, explained which breeds were in which class, and showed how to train some of them. I was, however, disappointed with all of the clips from the movie and "Legend of the Boneknapper Dragon" though.
Gift of the Night Fury:
If you didn't think "Book of Dragons" was worth half the price, I sure hope you think this one was worth full price, because I do, and then some. This movie was just as good as the actual movie. Please buy this. Dreamworks deserves the money after the effort you can tell they put into it. If you have not seen it, skip to the next paragraphy right now; I am about to ask a question that involves spoilers. Is Toothless the only male dragon on Berk? Because he's the only one that didn't lay any eggs. Just a thought.
So if you're wondering whether or not you should buy this, stop wondering and DO IT! You won't regret it.
And Book of dragons is a short excerpt from the dragon book Hiccup was reading in the Movie, it too is funny but short.
Side note: With the 2 pack you get an access code (or at least for the next year or so you do) that give you 2 accounts with an online adventure using the How you train your dragon style characters to create a avatar and play online
