Fair

Good, but hard

Taking place an undisclosed amount of time after A New Beginning, Eternal Night felt like a bit of a letdown. That doesn't stop it from being playable at the very least. environments and controls are present from the first game. Environments are bland, but at least they tried to mix it up a little bit. There's a bit more variety in the levels, but they took a really questionable direction with some of they parchment-style cut-scenes.

Billy West as the voice of Sparks did a little better job than David Spade did in the first, but I found him to be a bit more annoying this time around.

The game follows the same formula as the first game: Travel down linear corridors until something triggers, defeat all the enemies and repeat. It does bring some more puzzles to the table this time around, but they were very tedious and boring, not to mention some of the enemies are so cheaply placed that some points are more frustrating than they need to be.

All in all, it's average. Its story is still engaging, but there were a lot of elements that didn't need to be introduced.

It still holds the charm and personality from the first game, but it is a hard recommendation.

"too many cut scenes and wasn't long enough of a game play for her, said it was like playing a whats the word prequill (cant spell lol) for another game. mind you she beat it in like a day or 2 give or take mind you that her time was like half hour every other day. graphics was good char. was good. just that it was like playing a squall to another game which she didn't like

this game is pretty good if you like Spyro and taking you're angry out on the bad guy and stuff. but the forest part of the game just freak's me out for some reason.
