  • Summary: The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night continues the strong action-infused gameplay focus established in The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning and takes it even further with new powers, including: Four new, upgradeable Breath Attacks (one for each element type), such as Ice Bomb, Electric Orb, Earth Vine, Enhanced Fire; Four new elemental melee moves, including Comet Dash, Artic Blast, Earth Pound, Electric Spin; Four new Fury attacks – Earth, Electricity, Ice, Fire; Monstrous new and explosive boss battles against the likes of Skabb the Pirate, Gaul the Ape King and more. The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night also expands Spyro's combat arsenal by adding "Dragon Time," a new advanced move that allows Spyro to bend time to his will. Players can engage Dragon Time to dodge attacks, out-maneuver enemies or solve tricky time-based environmental puzzles. [Sierra Entertainment] Expand

  1. 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]
  2. Spyro hasn't the strength to soar into the realms of a must buy title but he's got more than enough stamina to hover above the current crop of average platformers. [Christmas 2007, p.74]
  3. It does feel like an eternal night when you're playing it, due to the repetitive gameplay and lack of detail and innovation.
  4. The gameplay is fine but it really needs freshening up to make it more appealing.
  5. 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]
  6. Spyro continues his quest for mediocrity in yet another frustrating, unoriginal adventure.
  7. 36
    The biggest problem with Eternal Night is just how pointlessly difficult it is.
