  1. The gripes are really mainly relating to the individual games, which for anyone remotely experienced will quickly become far too familiar and untaxing to warrant extended interest.
  2. Now on to the biggest problem of this title. It is simply too short.
  3. To sum up Spyro Orange in one sentence: I'd rather slam my fingers in my desk drawer than play those mini-games again.
  4. The Frankenstein's monster of a game I played does little more than scratch the underside of mediocrity. Buy this for an irritating nephew, but keep yourself and those for whom you care for deeply away from this game.
  5. Instead of proceeding to that final stage, I was told to backtrack through the entire game, beat every minigame two more times, and then trudge all the way back. Sorry, but that's not fun - that's lazy desing and artifical lengthening through tedious repetition. [June 2004, p.72]

    A mildly diverting platformer/party game that isn't as good as its counterpart, but kiddies of all ages will enjoy it. Pros: Great graphics for the GBA; variety of mini-games; the platforming "hubworld" has a lot to collect. Cons: Too short, too easy; some of the mini-games get repetitious; Crash Bandicoot Purple is a tad bit better. Full Review »
