    This is one of the hardest games I've ever played. Not because the difficulty level is too high, but because the mind-numbing boredom it gave me made me want to kill myself before I played more of it. There is absolutely no substance to this game whatsoever, with the game mostly based around the boring collection of gems and occasionally attacking easy to defeat enemies.

There is absolutely no substance to this game whatsoever, with the game mostly based around the boring collection of gems and occasionally attacking easy to defeat enemies. While it has good graphics for a GBA game, these are cancelled out by the completely uninspired and forgettable soundtrack. Maybe diehard Spyro fans could enjoy this game, but I was sorely disappointed with it. If you're looking for a good platformer on the GBA, there are much better choices. Expand

  1. Spyro 2’s major and quite glaring shortcoming – boredom. There’s plenty to do here, but none of it really makes you want to carry on the story through to its end because none of it is particularly fun.
  2. It’s the closest thing to a vaguely taxing "Banjo Kazooie" -style adventure we might ever get.
