Elijah Wood is prominently declared the voice of Spyro as the opening credits roll. Who really cares that he is the voice of Spyro for this one game? The voice credits were not shown until the end for the original series done by Insomniac. The new company that took over since their departure has been nothing short of horrendous. They have butchered the poor purple dragon and violated him in ways I dare not mention.
As for the game itself, Spyro seems slightly "off" as does Sparx, who is now some gigantic big faced muppet lookalike. The controls are a little dodgy, and the whole game has a "dark" feel to it, emphasizing the fighting and violence instead of the thrill of adventure like the previous games.
While the emphasis on different "elements" (fire, ice, etc) for attacks seems interesting, it is still too heavy for a typical Spyro game. There are far too many moves, and combat often has a clunky feel to it.
For any fans of the Spyro series, I recommend playing the first few over again. This game is absolutely the worst I have ever seen in the Action/Adventure genre, and by far the worst Spyro ever to be released.
Dont contaminate your Game Q with this horrid game.
