Engaging, but very short and a bit bland

A short game with little replay value, but it at least has its own quirks to make it interesting.

The story is actually rather engaging from the start, but where it falls is its landscapes. They're all bland and generic. Swamp, snow, fire, grass, crystal palace etc. But personally, I don't really see that as a bad thing.

The graphics were nice, the controls were smooth, and I rarely encountered any bugs or glitches.

Though most of the game just felt like a fleshed out tutorial, it at least showed growth of the title character, and for that, I think it is worth it. Yea, it can be completed in only seven hours, but at least it delivers on action.

All in all, while it's not as great as the games that came before it, it does have its own unique charm and it shouldn't be passed up just because its different.

I thought the game had a interesting plot to it and the fact that spyro has different abilities in this one wasn't at all bad. The story line was good and the game play wasn't at all dissapionting.

When I was a little kid, I first got the Playstation along with my very first game. Spyro the Dragon. In the past i played my fathers game of DOOM. But this was My first game. The moment I met this little purple dragon, I was hooked, And from that moment on, I became a Gamer. I have All three games in my collection, And treasure them to this very day. After the PS1 games were over and done with and the PS2 was out, I never really got any new spyro games. Then Skylanders came out and i saw the abomination that they turned spyro into, So i decided to play these games to see how spyro came to this. When i played This game, I was surprised that Spyro made enough money that they got Elijah Wood, David Spade and Gary Freaking Oldman to be in this game. Oldman alone was enough for me to enjoy this game, And being a huge spyro fan, I played and had a blast. It is very short however, I think that if i had enough time, I would have beaten it the very day i got it. But still, I had fun playing this game and look forward to renting the next. See you soon Spyro my main dragon...Oh and by the way...DAVID SPADE SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCKS in this game. Just prepare to be annoyed to death.
