    Much improved from the last GBA release (Season of Ice) not only in the stages themselves (all of them are fairly enjoyable as opposed to being hit or miss) but the flying has improved so the platforming isn't as hard. The graphics are also better and more colorful, the music is still nice and fitting to the area.

The graphics are also better and more colorful, the music is still nice and fitting to the area. The gameplay is still challenging and the controls are still intuitive (as they usually are). There's a lot of challenges that are take it or leave it to continue on so you can do as much as you feel.... but the deeper you go (I'm anal and have to 100% it like a freak) the more challenging the side quests become which I like despite the fact some of the side quests are taxing and repetitive.... (eg. chasing/catching leprechauns) 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.
