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. -

Man I have really enjoyed playing alot of games, especially the old spyro...riptos rage.etc This stinks..I wanted to run around and find eggs with stuff, diamonds....hidden whatever. If I wanted to fight...well whatever, no sense crying. too much fighting and the levels are walking and fighting and thats it. Bottom line is they took a fun game that was thoughtless but cool and screwed the pooch. darn shame. Like the other guy said, crash and spyro WERE awesome..not anymore.WHats wrong with you guys...man.. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY ON THIS ONE!
Its true you don't get the old pick up gems or find dragons eggs or even find dragon flies. But this game consumes you once you really start playing. I lost whole afternoons once I got started. Of course the cut scenes could be shorter but I feel that about alot of games. I enjoyed this game.
