    Even more wooden-hearted and mean-spirited than A New Beginning. Pros: Again, good graphics and visuals. Cons: Again, generic and formulaic, and refuses to push the boundaries of whatever genre it "claims" to be.

    If The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning wasn't the worst game in the franchise (which it is), then this one would be. It carries over the same story and gameplay problems from the first game (although with an improved save system), and on top of that, has a completely brutal difficulty! Fighting groups of enemies is now more rampant than ever, you get knocked back and temporarily stunnedIf The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning wasn't the worst game in the franchise (which it is), then this one would be. It carries over the same story and gameplay problems from the first game (although with an improved save system), and on top of that, has a completely brutal difficulty! Fighting groups of enemies is now more rampant than ever, you get knocked back and temporarily stunned by each hit, giving enemies more time to kill you, and every time you die (which will happen a lot!), Sparks says something obnoxious. The formula for playing this game is: progress a little, get stuck and die 20 times, quit game and come back to it months later, beat what you got stuck on, progress a little more, get stuck and die 20 times, quit game and come back to it months later, and repeat over and over and over and over and OVER again! Does that sound fun? Because it most certainly isn't! Expand

    The story is lame, the game's difficulty balance is terrible and overall it isn't a good game or worth your money or time. Do not bother ever putting this game in your Ps2 because you will be dissapointed.

    Spyro died after the 3rd release by Insomniac. The rest of the series is pure garbage. The same with Crash series

    A bad game. This series was killed after Insomniac released the control. You shouldn't waste your time with this game. I wouldn't even give this to my worst enemy. That is how bad it is.

  1. Spyro's gameplay works just like it's suppose to--just like it has in every other game in the last decade, so it feels like the development team just phoned this one in. [Nov 2007, p.142]
  2. A solid platformer with some nice visuals and simple but enjoyable gameplay. It doesn't have any huge, glaring deficiencies to speak of, but at the same time, it's simply not cut from the sort of stock that makes a classic.

    What Insomniac began Krome have now made completely their own, taking Spyro from a lighthearted adventure to a hardcore dark platformer. [Nov 2007, p.56]
