Rated 8 out of 10 by Josh M Its not as bad as its made out to be
I'll give this game credit. I think it's a game thats just as good as the other spyro games are, it's certainly head over tails above the legend of spyro series to me! I thought that this game was cool when I first bought it and I still think its cool even now! I like this game because its just like the originals for the playstation one. Just a good clean fun Spyro the Dragon game, is that too much to ask for. Let me compare this to the legend of spyro series for a second, For one thing they are just too long! And maybe some of us don't want spyro to change or lose all the good characters like hunter and Sgt. Byrd, and the professor, and other characters. All I'm saying is just give this game a try, if you like spyro, you'll like this game. Sure the glitches and stuff may be annoying at times but I would still give it a try, and if you feel that you don't like it after you've played it well long enough then just simply try something else, but please don't bash this game like some people do!

I've played spyro since the first one,and I have to say it was a true disappointment to play this. The story line wasn't good,the graphics were okay but it felt I played for short time and for the graphics to load took forever.There wasn't much of a challenge in it either,it was mighty simple.I couldn't play it for long because the loading took forever and also my brother,much younger than me easily played the game,he was disappointed as well,though he's only been playing spyro for about 4 years,he found it not amusing.They tried to hard,and failed miserably.I would definitely recommend people to keep playing spyro because the old ones were amazing, and also if they play this and don't enjoy it, they should still try A Heros Tail and Legend Of Spyro:A New Beginning,because both are still fun.
Rated 8 out of 10 by ChambersJ91 Not as bad as I thought
I was on here reading some of the reviews and I noticed it wasn't getting very good ones. I went and bought the game yesterday and played for about 5 hours in 24 hrs. and I'm more than 50% of the way. So it's a short one. Nothing like the PS1 game Spyros though. So if your thinking it will be like them...well it isn't. But it isn't a bad game. I have ran across some glitches and none of them affected the game. The only annoying one that I had was that I could hear a Dragonfly buzzing no matter where I went or what worlds I was in. Simple restart fixed that. Other than that nothing threatening. I would recommend the game. Just beware of the long load times even though it would give you time to stretch. A fun game to play and it took me back to the day where I played all the older ones.
Rated 1 out of 10 by Teraunce Aggravating to the extreme
Gameplay: All the others in the series are fun. This one, however, is not, for the simple fact the collectables are mobile, move just as fast as you do, and you have to stop just to catch them with a very short breath attack. Did I mention the taunting and how they run away from you constantly? Aside from that, everyone else has mentioned the glitches and load time issues, except the one where sparx won't follow you. Graphics: Could be worse, could be better. Sound: Dear god the voice acting is annoying. otherwise it's ok. lasting appeal: very little. if you finish this, you are a far more stubborn person than I.
Rated 10 out of 10 by JayFAM Amazing
When I was a little kid this was the first game I ever played on the PS2. I had Spyro Enter the Dragonfly for awhile, and to me it was amazing, I loved every second of it sadly it was stolen from me...I never got to finish it ... I'm almost a teen and I'm getting it again! I'm really excited to play it again! I understand that a lot of people hate it but if it wasn't for this game I wouldn't have liked the spyro series. Sure there are a lot of glitches in it but the flying glitch was soo helpful to me. Over all It is the best game to me other than Ratchet & Clank!
Rated 6 out of 10 by theaveragejoe not what spyro use to be
i would just like to say the only reason spyro games are not awesome anymore like the ps1 games is because isomanic stopped making spyro at spyro 3 and went on to make games like ratchet and clank and later resistance. and other companies tried to make spyro games and it didn't pan out to well sadly. showing that the designers truly make or break the game. all im saying is if isomanic still made new spyro games it would still be amazing. p.s this game is not truly spyro.
Rated 2 out of 10 by roguejmh888 Worst in the Series
This sypro was the worst of all of them. The graphics was fair but it did had some problems, glitches were the biggest problems in the game not to mention the cam was wonky. The most set back was the flight level not fun at all. And at times I wanted to make spyro jump he just falls to the ground or he will fall to the pits. The sound was alright nothing to get you to loving the soundtrack. The game is so short I was like thats it?! I won't play this one again ever!
Rated 2 out of 10 by BlueBlur101 What have they done...?
I have always been a huge spyro fan. So thinking that a new game for the playstation 2 was going to be a great game, i walked into a swirling whirlpool of lies. The gameplay is too stiff for a spyro game and the characters just aren't the same anymore. I know the original creators aren't working on spyro titles anymore, but at least sell the series to someone who knows what they're doing.
Rated 2 out of 10 by Tfoo I would not recomend this
First of all i kind of agree with some of the other people it always too forever to load and whenever I played I would not play it again for maybe a year or two. Persanolly im a spyro fan and I loved the ps1 game i have and "a new beggining" but this game kind of made me lose my intrest of Spyro games so I would recomend never buy this game, touch it, or even look at it.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Johnny73 Not a bad game
Not sure why everyone is freaking out about the game and saying it is horrible.... It's not even that bad at all. I'm a Spyro fan and I was not disappointed with this game
