Rated 10 out of 10 by Type0 Spyro the Freakin Dragon
For anyone that has not heard or played any Spyro game you are missing out big time! This is an old game and lets be honest the graphics aren't anything like Final Fantasy XIII. Having said that this game is just as good if not better than Final Fantasy XIII. Spyro is a classic game that everyone who plays falls in love with. I got this game for my birthday when the playstation 2 just came out and I played this game for hours and hours. This is one of those games that you will take you time playing and get 100% in. The characters are great and you enjoy being spyro as he goes on his big advanture to save the other dragons and defeat the evil nasty villian at the end. If you feel this game is not that good or you want to continue going on advantures with spyro then I highly recommend that you play Spyro 2 Ripto's Rage. That game is better and more fun but Spyro 1 is still good and is the beginning of it all
Rated 10 out of 10 by JCV7009 Spyro the Dragon..where it all began.
I grew up with this game and this game is just fantastic. The game gets you playing for hours at a time. It's fun and a great game. The graphics aren't too shabby for a PS1 game. The point of is this is that you have to rescue the dragons from all over the Dragon Worlds that are trapped in crystal by Gnasty Gnorc and to collect all the treasure and get back the dragon eggs stolen by the man in blue (thief). To me, this game has great music that fits perfectly with the world you are in. Some worlds are easy to beat and others you have to do a lot of backtracking. For example, in Tree Tops in the Beast Makers world, to get all of the treasure in that world you have to exit the game and hop back in and follow the thief that you see at the beginning of the level (unless you already played it and know how to get to him without stalking the thing). But overall this was a great game and I would recommend this game to anyone. I still play this game along with Spyro's Ripto's Rage and Spyro Year of the Dragon. I would also recommend Spyro Ripto's Rage and Year of the Dragon. All of the three original Spyro's were outstanding games. If you like playing classics, give this game a shot.
Rated 10 out of 10 I grew up with it.
The original spyro trilogy is the best of all games ever made, PERIOD. The graphics beat ANY other playstation 1 game, its got amazing sounds, an amazing cast of actors and alot more. This is not just for kids, but also for casual games or even hard core gamers. It is amazing and fun, and never has a dull moment, and has the best video game soundtrack of all time. Dont pass this game up! But beware! I recommend you buy the code for PSP only or get a disk copy, as the PS3 code is flawed. This game running on PS3 is laggy and wont stop with the lags. Its better to use it on PSP or get an original disk copy. Check out my attached recommendations for the other 2 games in the trilogy, and another awesome game like spyro.
Rated 10 out of 10 by CrazyDragonLady Needs to be on NA PS Vita too
I love this game to death, it had very wonderful graphics for its day and age, I still have the first three on PS1 disks.
However, I recently bought a PS Vita and unfortunately they don't seem to have this awesome game or other awesome games like it from the PS1 era in the North American stores for the Vita (so I highly doubt there's any legal issues because they also have some of the same games we do from that era and blah!)
I don't have a PS3 or a PSP, it would've been the first time I bought anything new and Playstation related since 2009... sooooooo yea, I'm not going to give back my Vita.

I loved the Spyro, Crash Bandicoot, Jak and Daxter, and Pac-Man World franchises. But if I was to recommend any of those games to anyone, i'd tell them to get Spyro. Not the stupid "Hero's Tale" or whatever, but the first 2 original games. THey are amazing and I'm so glad that Playstation is finally picking up on it again. I'm only 13 and I remember playing this on my PS1 that I got for my 3rd birthday, and today it still works like a charm. I still have all the original cases for them and everything. So I recommend this game to ANYONE.

Rated 10 out of 10 by RussianGamer027 One Of The Greatest PS1 Games Of All Time!
This is without a doubt one of the greatest games ever to be produced for the Sony PlayStation. The graphics, the controls, the soundtrack, the gameplay, it is all amazing. This was one of my first games for the PS1. I still own a copy and play it to this day. This game will never get old. This is a game I will hopefully still be able to play 10-20 years from now!
Rated 10 out of 10 by MonEMon It is simply amazing
I remember the first time I played this game I was amazed. Of course I was a lot younger then, but even today I play it and am amazed by it. It is so fun and to think that we had such an amazing game so long ago is just unbelievable. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves adventure games. Spyro will always be right next to Mario for me. Get this game and enjoy it too. You will not regret it.
Rated 9 out of 10 by gamefan4564 holds up really well
the first spyro game is not to be overlooked for some good reasons. the levels are creative and challenging, there are lots of hidden items, and exploration is rewarding. the graphics look great, but are still ps1 styled. but the biggest problem is when gliding, you might get careless and fly off the edge of the world. other than that, it's a game that has aged really well.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Russkie27 One Of The Best Of ALL TIME!!
This game is a true classic. And would be a great game to have for anyone of any age! I still play this game on my PS1 to this day! This game was amazing for the time it was made. The graphics, soundtrack, storyline...just epic! Worth it for all gamers!
