  1. It has a fantastic score, an excellent cast and some genuinely good ideas, but its inability to find balance between narration and game, along with poor execution, means that this is one purple headed monster you won’t want to be playing with.

    for some reason, someone decided it would be a good idea to go even farther away from spyro's original roots and make this game. there arefor some reason, someone decided it would be a good idea to go even farther away from spyro's original roots and make this game. there are some good things about this game, its functional, the dialogue is done pretty well and is well voice acted, the story is pretty good, but the gameplay is very repetitive and boring. it turned what use to be a platformer into a sort of beat em up kind of game, well it doesn't really fit with a genre and that's the biggest problem, the game dosnt know what it is at all Full Review »

    I can see why people hate this game, but I like change if it's done correctly and well, this game is really good, instead of a collect-a-thonI can see why people hate this game, but I like change if it's done correctly and well, this game is really good, instead of a collect-a-thon we have a Beat-em-up, Spyro like in Enter the Dragonfly has new breaths, Fire, Electricity, Ice and Earth, all 4 feel very useful in their own situations and neither outclass each other, there's also Convexity which is only used at the end boss, I also like how some enemies resist one element while vulnerable to another. The game looks really good and I enjoy the gameplay, I also like Cynder in this game a lot, she's badass when you see her fly around in the distance.

    The only downsides are...
    If you expect this to be like an old school Spyro game, it isn't and you properly won't like it.
    The game can become very linear.
    If you replay the game you cannot skip the tutorials for the new elements, which is very annoying.
    Very easy.
    The guardian dragons except Ignitus are pointless and add nothing besides teaching Spyro.
    Sparx...

    Overall it's a good game.

    I like this game, its really good because of the way they rebooted the story, added melee combat and added new breath attacks. Some theI like this game, its really good because of the way they rebooted the story, added melee combat and added new breath attacks. Some the disadvantages of this game are that there aren't enough flying levels, you aren't allowed to visit previous levels like in the old spyro games and there aren't enough vehicles for spyro to control but overall I think the game is good and the replay value is alright.
