I was looking so forward to playing a new spyro especially on wii -- wish I hadn't wasted my time. I spent 2 hours trying to kill one toad wead on the very first level. I never did kill it. Although I'd like to kill something! I got the game 2 and a 1/2 hours ago... I'm happy to send it back.
What a waste.

this Spyro was a huge disappointment. im a spyro fan and i have to say this is the worst spyro game i've played. the controls are hard to use, its too serious, bad graphics, and nothing like eggs to collect. i wish the people that made it would make it like the old spyros. im glad i only rented it. i recommend you would rent it if you think you might have a different opinion but DO NOT BUY IT!!!!!!! it would be a waste of money.
When i heard this was coming out for the next gen Wii I was so excited, and couldnt wait for this to come out. Im the biggest spyro fan out there, but I cant believe the makers of this game would take out every element that made all of the past spyro's special. They were fun, and easy to pick up and play. i went through the first level and felt like breaking the cd and sending it back. First off, the magic bar system sucks,, i cant believe you have to recharge to use your fire breath. you cant run at first like in previous games, and they made it way to freakin serious. Like it was supposed to be an epic game or something. I wanted fun when i picked up the wii mote,, but they made the control scheme hard for a gamer of 18 yrs several minutes to get used to. This game is the crappiest spyro ever made,, the graphics dont even look next gen. I think spyro 2 riptos rage set the standard of what these games should be, everything else after that just seemed like they tried to put to much into it.. if you guys like spyro , get the regular spyro game and riptos rage,, they are fun enough for kids to play and cool enough for hardcore gamers like me to appreciate. -
