  • Summary: The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night continues the strong action-infused gameplay focus established in The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning and takes it even further with new powers, including: Four new, upgradeable Breath Attacks (one for each element type), such as Ice Bomb, Electric Orb, Earth Vine, Enhanced Fire; Four new elemental melee moves, including Comet Dash, Artic Blast, Earth Pound, Electric Spin; Four new Fury attacks – Earth, Electricity, Ice, Fire; Monstrous new and explosive boss battles against the likes of Skabb the Pirate, Gaul the Ape King and more. The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night also expands Spyro's combat arsenal by adding "Dragon Time," a new advanced move that allows Spyro to bend time to his will. Players can engage Dragon Time to dodge attacks, out-maneuver enemies or solve tricky time-based environmental puzzles. [Sierra Entertainment] Expand

  1. The platform levels are fairly interesting to play through, but they’re not enough to carry the entire game. The combat in the levels is boring, and the boss battles confusing.
  2. The Eternal Night tries its best to capture the classic Spyro recipe, but is let down by poor design, an unfair camera and infuriating difficulty spikes.
  3. 55
    But the game still feels like a step backwards: clumsy storytelling, awkward gameplay, wonky camera, and awful boss battles.
  4. A likeable adventure. While it contains many frustrating aspects that gamers would do well to stand, there’s something in the game that makes it oddly appealing.

    Poor draw distance, muddy textures, jerky controls, lofi sound there is very little to like about this game. The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night feels like a poor man's Year of the Dragon and is best avoided. Expand

    Haven't you jerks battered Spyro's lifeless corpse enough yet? He used to be such a happy dragon. This game is god awful. The controls are horrible and Spyro's movement is so forced and immediate that you'd think he is high on cocaine. Expand
