    A New Beginning brings back what I like about Spyro and it is still flawed and not as good as the playstation 1 trilogy but still is good. Sierra Entertainment knew how to make a spyro game.

    Graphics were good. Some of the dialogue was entertaining but there was too much of it. Got tired of fighting the same enemy throughout the game. Big bosses were too easy. At least in the first games there was a goal--collect eggs, collect coins---this games whole purpose seemed to be fighting. Basically disappointed, didn't even take much time to beat either.

    Overall, this is a great game with great graphics and combat scenes. The only thing I found dissipointing was that most of the enemys were the same, and the bosses got easyer as the game went on. I found it very entertaining reading the names of each individual monster though.

    This new Legend is one you'll enjoy immensely while it lasts and crave once it's over.
  2. A step in the right direction. It's just plagued with mistakes that make it an uneven ride of missed chances. What makes it all the more galling is that it's presented so beautifully and uses the touch-screen in enjoyable ways.

    With any luck Krome's overhaul will prove lucrative enough to warrant them continuing the brand, flying Spyro into next-gen skies and who knows, perhaps a veritable rebirth. [Oct. 2006, p.54]
