    As much as I hate giving this game a low score, I have too. The story was decent, but got me confused at some times. The graphics were good, but didn't really look any different from A New Beginnings. The gameplay was the main part of the game, and it was atrocious. With no invincibility frames, 2 seconds of lag after being hit, and being able to have your entire health bar depleted by 3As much as I hate giving this game a low score, I have too.

    Although it starts out quite interesting, overall Eternal Night is dreary, dark and incredibly repetitive. Many boss fights are re-hashes or direct copies with new models from the previous game. The abilities are the same, although now they are less powerful, less practical, and burn through your magic bar at a remarkable rate, making all but fire pointless except for solving puzzles.

Having to relearn them as you go makes no sense, A few hours playing it will have you craving a bit of sunshine and bright colour. The environments are all dark and dreary and depressing. Expand

  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]

    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]
  3. The gameplay is fine but it really needs freshening up to make it more appealing.
