    For the most part, though, Spyro is a graphics bonanza with blasts of color and eye-catching nuances, such as rippling water, glowing flames, and shimmering portals.
  2. Looks good and sounds great, but Enter the Dragonfly lacks depth of play. It is a safe arcade-adventure outing.
  3. All in all, the game felt more like a task I had to complete rather than something to be enjoyed.
  4. Run, not walk, far away from this piece of junk. Do not buy this game at all costs or you will regret it. You have been warned.
  5. There really isn’t anything that separates it from other Spyro games. Actually in a lot of ways the PS1 games are much more enjoyable and original.
  6. Little children or people with no desire to experience innovative gameplay take notice; Enter the Dragonfly has your number dialed.
  7. A train wreck of a game that has no direction, no technical merit, and little appeal except as a game design house of horrors and a showcase for some good music by Stewart Copeland.

    A lot of people complained about the load times and glitches, while yes the load times are long, they aren't AS long as people say, plus many glitches are minor, like missing sounds clips or clipping issues, there are bigger glitches but you won't notice them in your main adventure unless you purposely activate them, the biggest glitch I'm aware of is that you can fight the end boss without completing any level.

    Speaking of the boss, Ripto is back... despite burning in lava... he's back along with Crush and Gulp who you also killed in Spyro 2, Ripto is the final boss while Crush and Gulp are just... well there, and they bring nothing to the story, plus Ripto asks Spyro if he wants to join forces for some reason despite clearly stating that in Spyro 2 that he "HATES DRAGONS! RAHAASSQQASADB" and Spyro shoots him down while Ripto looks sad :c... what was the point of that? It's just filler pretty much.

    The game plays similarly to the original games except with worse controls and different level design, the controls aren't bad but from a game series which always had fantastic controls, why ruin one of the main features of the original franchise? The levels are nice and vaired, you have a farm which has invaded by space cows, a dojo with ninjas, dreamland with bears (Yes I'm serious they pulled a Carebears parody) and more. However this is possibly the smallest Spyro game which follows the same formula as the original games, as this game only has one large hub world, and due to time constraints Universal put onto the developers.

    This game does feature a lot of good things, Stewart Copeland returns once again to create some good music, the graphics look good and it feels like it's a Spyro game and it's still a collect-a-thon. Plus Enter the Dragonfly adds breaths into the series, you have fire the default attack, bubble for catching Dragonflies, electricity for doing puzzles and attacking enemies, and ice for freezing enemies, I really like this idea as it brings ideas for puzzles, weaknesses for enemies, and it's nice to see something else besides fire breath without bring a new character.

    Overall Enter the Dragonfly is overhated, yes it's not as good as the original trilogy and it's buggy, but it still offers a lot and is overall a fun experience, if you see this game go for a low price (and I mean a low price) pick it up, you might enjoy it, if you don't, I don't blame you.

I tried to keep a positive attitude towards the game until I noticed the 2 minute loading times and difficult gameplays on side quests. The game could have great potential if it wasn't so broken. The graphics were mesmorizing and I like how I could choose different powers for Spyro's breath. Why did they break this game?! It now sits on my shelf collecting dust. Expand
