  1. Despite its flaws, The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning on the GBA does offer a decent handheld-sized bit of side-scrolling platformer action, looking and sounding pretty good in the process. But disappointingly the game comes and goes in the blink of an eye, lasting only around two hours tops with no replay value to speak of.
  2. I expected the same level of quality from Spyro's new beginning – the game that would reinvent the series. But all we got was a rehash – a mistake I hope does not lead to the series' retirement.
  3. 45
    The graphics are pretty bland, and the gameplay, while at first glance promising, turns out to be insultingly easy.
  4. The game is too short, the combat is way too repetitive, and the graphics and audio are years behind the curve.
