Rated 10 out of 10 by SorenTheGuardian this game is really good, incredible voice acting!
I found this game browsing youtube one night, I had seen the commerchials a long time ago for this series, and they looked epic, but I ignored them, and I'm sorry I did, I just got the first two games today, and let me say that I am greatly pleased with this game, I'm not gonna lie, It's been awhile since I picked up my PS2 controller instead of my Xbox 360 controller. is it like the original games? I would say hardly, but that really didn't matter for me. the story in the game is incredible as well and has voice acting that has exceeded my expectations, with Spyro voiced by none other than Elijah Wood. yes, Frodo Baggins from the Lord Of the Rings. my only complaint is that the bad guys make the same sound over and over and over and over and over, but dont let that one minor fact ruin the game for you, because overall, it is a very good game. recommended for any who like a good adventure.
Rated 5 out of 10 by Jupiterlight Spyro Comes Back Like a Whole New Game
It was action packed however if you like the original Spyro, this games nothing like it. Don't expect to collect things. Its mostly just leveling up like Final Fantasy I beat the game in less than two days and I take forever while playing a video game. One MAJOR plus to me is the voice acting however, I liked David Spade as Sparks. Just be aware that in the sequel, Eternal Night, there is a different voice actor (sounds like Fry from Futurama). So throughout the game you get ambushed maybe every ten minutes.Your always fighting enemies. Myself I couldn't wait for a break from pressing " X " over and over. The storyline is nice but there's not too many scenes. The music sounds like Fable or Lord of the Rings. It is pretty neat learning different elements but they only work for enemies and you can't use them on the environment to, say, freeze water so you can walk over it (or just for fun), or burn trees or some pay back by electrocuting the floor. I would recommend the game to someone who wants to continually smash baddies but not for a fan of the classic game. I thought it had potential to be more though.
Rated 9 out of 10 by SpyroDude13RA Great new look at Spyro
I am a huge Spyro fan. My favorite were the old ones for the Playstation One. After the first three Spyro games Spyro was headed down hill. I still liked some of the spyro games they were making but it just wasnt as fun. When this came out I was SHOCKED at how good it was. I love how they have taken things from the original and changed them to fit into this legendary storyline. The story of this Spyro game glides over the depth of any Spyro title before it. The gameplay is pretty fun but not the best. Ok honestly I got a bit ticked off at the gameplay but still the story, the cut scenes, the voices its all amazing. I recommend this to all Spyro fans and to people who just want a fun action adventure game. I have played both of this games sequels "The Eternal Night" and "Dawn of the Dragon" and this series fits together like a movie series its just wonderful.
Rated 9 out of 10 by NovaDestiny Best 6 hours I ever spent ^^
On the day I bought this, I got it for really cheap at the GameStop in my fave mall. I get home, put it in the console, and it was AMAZING!! ^^ I had originally played the GBA version, but seeing it in better graphics just made it even better. ^^
I grew up playing Spyro, and it's been in my life forever. So I am a hardcore Spyro fan. When I heard about this game, I was pretty excited, but nervous that i would ruin Spyro for me due to a different story line(And lack of G nasty G norc) but I think it made me love Spyro even more. ^^ His voice is actually better then it was in the original, and we get to see more of Sparks which makes it even better. ^^
If your a big fan of Spyro, go get this game. And if you beat it on the day you bought it, I would suggest having more caffeine. ^^
Rated 10 out of 10 by warherolj Spyro: A Legendary Suprise
I just beat this game a few hours ago on gamecube and overall I was ver suprised. My discovery of this rebooted series started about a month ago when I was looking for something new and my brother spotted it and we thought it looked interesting for a Spyro game. Anyway I picked up a different game cause I still wasnt sure, but I came home and looked into it and decided to take the other one back and get it 2 days later. The production value of the game was great because of the clean graphics and the actors they got to do the voices. Elijah Wood is Spyro, while Sparx is played by David Spade and Ignitus is played by Gary Oldman. I then discovered that this was the start of a trilogy that is completely overlooked. Just days ago my brother got the third one that completes the trilogy which is even better than this one. I also forgot to mention the upgradable powers and fury attacks that are in the game also and it also has a series of combos and techniques for you to master. The game is only seven hours and the combat can get repetative at times but with a new story, talented voice acting, graphics, and upgrabable combat overall I found a real gem. If you were never really into Spyro games then you might wanna pick this one up, for me Spyro was a curiousity that I never persued
Rated 10 out of 10 by Cap1995 A good introduction to Spyro
I just played this yesterday, and was surprised at how great this game was. I found addictive gameplay, great gameplay, great graphics, great sound, and a superbly deep story...deeper than most I know of.
Not just is this a great Spyro game but is one of the greatest games I know of. This is a gem you must add to your collection The game's gameplay is simple, addictive and challenging enough to keep you playing but not throw the remote into the screen from frustration.
As soon as the game finished, I wanted to play it again. If you're interested in this game or need a good introduction to him, I can think of no better game than this.

Rated 8 out of 10 by Dyro177 Depends On Your Stance On Spyro
This Game was a good game in my opinion not the best but enough to call it good and worth a buy.Also Depends on how much you like Spyro what I considered was a lot of people didn't really favor this game due to it's dramatic change. To sum up a short stand point of this not really a review but just my thoughts this game definitely was good and could of been longer. The game overall felt different which is good and an all star cast which is cool. Finally I would like to say that I liked this game very much and that you might if you give it a try.
Rated 9 out of 10 by animelover9000 great game
This game is great its very fun it could have been a little bit harder and longer but over then that excellent game I beat it in 2 days it was worth the 2 days you have 4 powers fire,lightning,ice,and earth im going to pick up a copy of eternal night today im hoping its going to be as good as new beginning.
Rated 10 out of 10 by sweetraven great growth!!
I grew up with the original spyro and it was fun but nothing compared to this major overhaul!! I'd highly recommend this game for people who like an easy game to play with their kids or just in general.
