i love spyro, but this game just spat on the spyro series. its not that the game is totally boring, its just that it has ridiculosly hard bosses. im stuck on one of the levels and canot get past it. dont rent this game.
First off I would like to say that this game is definitely not for children, there really is nothing that would offend, its simply hard (actually impossible) to beat and incredibly dark for a "children's" game. This was my girlfriends pick and although she isn't the best gamer around she can finish most of the games she gets... this one required my help. I died 4 times on every boss just trying to find out the weak point they never hint of nor is incredibly obvious. The sound is fairly good, with big name actors Elijah Wood and whoever voices Fry on Futurama. The graphics are decent, the controls on the other hand are horrid. You couldn't double jump to save your life... except for when you don't want to and that too ends your life. This game is much too hard for a child and has way too dark and depressing, not to mention nearly there of a story to keep an adult interested. But being the completionist my girl is we did finish it, after 5 hours of excruciating pain.
