  1. Just about everything that we complained about in the last game has been addressed. This is one great platformer.
  2. A wondrous adventure filled with great gameplay. [Jan 2005, p.68]
  3. A solid adventure game with some very nice improvements over its predecessor. However, the low difficulty level may turn off gamers looking for a challenge.
  4. It's the lack of real depth that will definitely bore serious gamers, but for the under-six set, Spyro is very easy to get into and understand. [Holiday 2004, p.87]
  5. A Hero's Tail does a good job at starting to expand Spyro's world in a few new directions with additional playable characters, but it's just a start.
  6. Spyro's newly expanded roster doesn't manage to save A Hero's Tail from monotony, and even the title's targeted younger demographic will probably soon tire of the game's reliance on boring collectible gathering.
  7. 40
    We grew bored of the sheer repetitiveness of the game play, and not even Spyro's smart-ass remarks could keep us amused. Just talk to the hand, Spyro. Snap!
