The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon
Great for fans of the Spyro series
One of the only ways of truly enjoying this game is to be involved with the previous games. Any new comers will most likely get confused with the storyline. Flying is a great new aspect of the game and the engine of it all is great. Like all games, though, it has it's downs as well as it's ups. The repetitive soundtrack is one of the flaws that i did not enjoy. They just used the same music as in the previous installments. The fighting is just like the other Spyro games in the series, repetitive as well. The only difference is that you can now switch dragons to get somewhat of a variety. The new design on the breaths that each dragon is now capable to wield is worth mentioning. Each dragon has 4 breaths and each breath has a secondary breath. The graphics of the game far surpass the graphics in any of the other games, but they could use some adjusting. Like the ones before it in the series, this one does not differ in the fact that it was short. It took me one day to fully complete the game. There aren't a lot of unlockables either. Just some art galleries and some extra abilities for completing a single armor set. It was mentioned that there would be armor available for you to find and use. In the game, the armor is only used to give you a certain ability. In all, this game is great if you like the series.
The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon was a huge improvement compared to the previous 2 games in the trilogy. The graphics were amazing, very colourful and very peaceful at times. The voice acting in it suited all the characters extremely well. The only bad thing about this game was the story was too short. The controls are very easy to learn and not confusing at all. All of your elements are chosen from the D-Pad. A really cool thing in the game was being able to fly for once! Another cool thing they have in this game is being able to play 2-player co-op. The only bad thing about 2-player co-op mode is that if the person you are playing with is not good, its frustrating trying to battle, climb or even just getting around. I recommend this to anyone that is a fan of spyro and wants to be able to do the things you could not do in the previous games.
best game ever played!
i love this game i love all spyro games they are the best games in the world he was in my childhood!
I have played all of the previous Spyro the dragon games and i don't see why some people are stuck on the old spyro. I know they were great and all, but these new Spyro games are even better. The new Spyro games are awesome, not just because of the new elements you can breath, but introducing melee attacks, new abilities and the new co-op. Personally, my favorite new addition is flying whenever you want. So to all of you who can't let go of the old Spyro you don't have to, you can have your old Spyro PS1 or not play it and have the new and improved one too.
I've played every spyro game up to date and this looks promising! No doubt i'm gonna get this game as soon as it comes out! Also, why do people think TEN was horrible?! It was great! And this WILL be better!
very very good game
l cant speek for everyone but l can for myself. for one thing about this game is that its a very good story line. for me l like a game that is fun to play and fun to fallow with the story. this is the 3 game to fallow the new beggining. l have played the old spyro games and they have done a very very good job on the game to make it more intresting and fun for kids. l reckoment this game to eny young players.
Not the Spyro I know.
I got this game after I traded in some games for the DS. I haven't played a Spyro game in awhile, not since the original Playstation days. Well, while the game looked amazing with the graphics, and the story was pretty interesting the gameplay and controls made me what to faceplam. I don't mind challenges in games, not one bit. But, when it takes around 800 hits to take out one enemy we're are stretching it here. (I used a cheat to see how many hits some enemies took to take down, because some felt like forever until they died) I mean, even in a game like God of War which is geared for be more challenging doesn't have enemies that powerful, maybe except the bosses. The controls aren't that great either, it took me quite awhile to even remotely get used to them. And even then, I had enemies just owning me left and right. Needless to say this game is not fun to play. So, if you're a fan of the series I slightly recommend the game to you, but even then I shake my head. I suggest one of the Ratchet and Clank games. As they are done by Insomniac, who was the studio that used to do the Spyro games way back when.
The first 3 spyro games were awesome going through portals collecting orbs, but the others were crappy. This game is awesome. The graphics look great. You can play with co-op which is awesome, but i hope that going through portals one day comes back, because i miss the good old days of spyro. When i was little all i did was play spyro with my mom. This game is great, please don't make me regret getting it.
BIG SPYRO FAN!!!
i love this game so much. it has a great story line and a very interesting ending.. if you love spyro you should play this game. you wont regret it.
waste of money and time.
i have played so many games for the ps3 and this was such a half hearted production. the graphics are extremely poor since they made the same game and ported it over to every system. the game horribly lacks any sense of a story. the cut scenes are SO cheap. i read somewhere that once the original team that worked on the first spyro stopped working on the game the other parts were horrible i never played any other ones than the first and now this last installment. i would have to agree. sierra did a horrible job. the controls especially for two players are horribly clumsy the flight mechanics are horrible as well. sometimes it makes you want to stab your self in the eye as it would be more fun than to play. I'm sure you will soon see a post from a GameStop employee saying how good this game is ( obviously not revealing his/her identity ) as they usually do on games that have bad reviews. this is one that you'd want to wait for it to reach the bargain bin. if your looking to buy this game... i got a better idea. go to your local hardware shop and purchase a nail gun with a clip of 100 nails and start shooting yourself in the face with it, trust me you'll thank me for it!
