    Really difficult and mean-spirited. Puff was magic; Spyro is a jerk. [Christmas 2007, p.84]
  2. The game has great strengths in its visuals and overall appeal, but the gameplay underneath is simply outright flawed and repetitive.
  3. Having Gary Oldman and Frodo do voiceovers doesn't make up for the fact this game looks and plays like something made five years ago.

    The biggest problem with Eternal Night is just how damn pointlessly difficult it is.
  5. I vote that we petition Krome Studios to either make a new character, or do the world a favor and pick up a franchise that deserves to die.
