What happened to Spyro games? I was hoping for a fun, quick game to play. A game that had easy controls, fast moving story and "cute" characters. But these new Spyro games, yuck! It's Spyro meets Mortal Combat. The controls are difficult, the story is dry and long, and sparx is borderline obnoxious. No thank you.
Ahh.... Spyro my favorite purple dragon. Remember when Spyro was simple on the ps1? NOT ANYMORE!!! The new breath techniques are awesome as is the way that they incorporate them into the game. But LOOONG dialog (along with a particularly annoying sparks) made the game difficult to play for more than half an hour, at the tops. Personally i liked sparks better when all you could understand was BZZZZ. The enemies are repetitive and often overwhelm your tiny little dragon with many bad guys all attacking at the same time. Be prepared to die...A LOT!!! Some of the jumps seem to be made for Superman instead of this tiny little dragon. And after you die you will get a little pick-up talk from spyro or a sarcastic remark from Sparks (Unless you are forced to sit thorough the same cut scene AGAIN) After a while the "I need to remember my training" and "Why don't you try shooting fire out of your face" made me want to throw the controller at the television screen. Along with yelling at sparks that i was doing the best i could. Also the camera can sometimes get in your way, especially when it goes behind a bush when you are fighting a particularly large group of enemies. Is the camera afraid of the fighting or what? All in all, i am a fan of the spyro series but the game developers should have left spyro's GOOD memory fade away before they turn spyro into the most hated little purple dragon out there. So 4 out of 10. (And that's on a VERY VERY good day.)
