The third game in the new beggining series should have been a fitting end for the series, but instead choopy controls and a confusing story line ruined it. The first thing that struck me about Dawn of the Dragon was how similar it was to LotR the two towers. It used the same combo counter and armor power-up gimmick as lord of the rings. But, your on four legs and attacking is more confusing and less affective. The controls for flying sucks and you're tethered to Cynder so you can't fly too far away. And that's another thing. This is a Spyro game. I dont want to play as Cynder. I know I wrote a bad review of Eternal night, but that was when i didnt know what a good game was. The format of the first two were so good, and they messed it up really badly. But, the game had great graphics, and offered a two player option.
If you really want to see how the series ends, or just REALLY liked LotR two towers, then rent this game.
i have been playing spyro ever since it came out on the playstation 1 and this one of the best spyro game EVER!! i like that they kind of made it like a movie ever time you finish a level. the only thing i have to complain about is through out the whole game im trying to keep spyro alive but at the end he sacrifices himself to save the world because its breaking apart literally it was breaking into 4 peices sooo that was really disapointing for me but other than that it was a fun game i personaly would not buy the game even though i liked it because once you beat the game you cant do anything eles except try to unlock the bounus stuff or see the credts over and over again or start the game all over again soo i would just rent it and try to beat it.
it's hard to play on wii controllers vs. ps2's controller. If you could just use the game controller instead of having to use the joystick + hand-held controllers, it would be more fun to play. Graphics are great.
