Rated 10 out of 10 by Alpha101 One Of The Best PS1 Games Of All Time!!!
This game was basically one of the only games that I played when I was little, because it was so good. I can't remember too much about the story, but I do remember that it was pretty good. The gameplay was very fun and the game lasted a while. It's not something that you can finish in two or three hours like a COD game. I played this for about a year, maybe longer, and still never finished, although it might be because I was just a little kid. I said that this game is perfect for kid gamers, but adults could probably enjoy it to. Pick this up and you won't regret it.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Zeph Its the 9/10 PS1 game - with issues
Spyro: Year of the Dragon is the same exact experience you got on the PS1. You have the dozens of eggs to collect, thousands of gems to find, and a huge variety in gameplay that kept the game fresh. Here is the problem though, framerate drops. And I'm not even talking about subtle ones that only few people can detect or care about, these are significant in the downloaded version. Your framerate will constantly fall, which influences both audio and video.
Note that as a PSone classic, the game does not run in HD or Widescreen. It does, however, look better than sticking your old PS1 disc in because of the increased anti-aliasing.
Get this game if you never got to experience Spyro back in 2000
Rated 10 out of 10 by Nevan Spyro: Year of the Dragon - Best Review
When I was little kid I used to play this all the time. It was always fun, and yet when I bought this for ps3 it had the same controls as the ps1 wich makes it better to memorize and play the game, but anyhow spyro used to be my favorite game until they cam out with new ones then it started getting boring. Spyro: Year of the Dragon is fun to play. You have to collect all the eggs, gems, unlock levels, and beat bosses and challenges. Thats why this game is so top rated, but if anyone thinks its old and boring that isn't true. Ps1 came out with more games than xbox did so be glad there making ps1 games play on psp, ps2, and ps3's!
Rated 10 out of 10 by alexela Good Game
I do remember this was my first game that I was addicted to when I was little. The graphics aren't as good as the games we see today, but it is fun and brings back a lot of memories ;) . It's fun to follow through the story and I will enjoy playing this game over and over again(even though I had beaten it many times.) I've played all of the games the story has to follow and really none of the new skylander or legend stuff. . .kinda makes me mad though because to me it ruined a good game-well thats my opinion.

Rated 10 out of 10 by 7bs5928 A fun game for all ages
It been 7 years since I played this game and it brought back so many things that I loved about spyro after getting it me and my young sibling play the game for hours on end. However the volume is up and down but over all it's a good game and shows how much gaming visuals have changed but I prefer the original pixel.

Gotta say I love these classic ps one games on the psp. I hadn't played spyro forever, but then I saw this on the ps store one day and had to buy it. I'm glad I did because they brought it back perfectly.
