I played the Shadow Realm one first and loved it, not knowing that this was the first one. Well, this game sucked. I hated that u had to use the bottom screen for the whole game play. Its 2 small for that. it was hard to see what was going to happen, and u could only do certain things with the actual controls. i just didnt like the layout of the game. i only played it for like 5 mintues and sent it back.

I think if I were a big Spyro fanboy, I'd like this. It's certainly not as clunky as I found the Spyro GBA titles, but here's why I just couldn't get into it: you have to use the cross pad, a, b, x, y buttons, and stylus! By my count that means 3 hands. The directions indicate that you use your finger, and not the stylus, but perhaps I just have big fat adult hands, my fingers weren't precise enough. I've wanted to get into Spyro, but I guess since I didn't own a PlayStation, I will forever be deprived of the best Spyro there was ('cause now it looks so dated, ick).
