    The Reignited Trilogy comes in at exactly the right time and hits all the right notes. Spyro is just as accessible and fun for newcomers as he is for veterans, with updated visuals, audio and gameplay allowing everyone to really have a blast with these classic games. Whether you played Spyro 20 years ago and fell in love or just saw his mischievous face on the cover art and were intrigued, the Spyro Reignited Trilogy is for you.

    Spyro: Reignited Trilogy is a wonderful recreation of three of my favorite games from my childhood. I’m so happy that I got to experience the games again in a new way, and it really excites me knowing a new generation will get to experience it as well. Is it the last time we’ll get to see Spyro and his buddy Sparx outside of the Skylanders franchise? I certainly hope not. And if this much love has gone into this remake, it would be a shame if it was.

    The new, vibrant graphics make Spyro a playable fantasy cartoon. It’s one of the most attractive kid-friendly games you’ll find.

    The studio redrew every model and changed the engine, but managed to keep the gameplay faithful to the original. Level architecture, Spyro’s abilities and his enemies – Reignited Trilogy plays just like the originals, only with modern graphics. [Issue#234, p.63]

    This bundle offers three fantastic remasters of the platformers. The gameplay feels a bit outdated, but the visuals definitely do not. A great nostalgia trip if you ask us.

    It’s a visually rich release that’s bound to appeal to new and veteran players, but it’s also one of the shallowest remasters this console generation has seen thus far.

It stays true to the originals with only the major graphic overhaul and some minor improvements in other areas (mostly menu related). The controls are fluid and responsive, nothing feels stiff at all. The price for all three games is damn good. Spyro was the first Playstation game I got back in the 90s and I loved it then, and it was strange realizing how dated the polygons looked when I tried revisiting it a few years ago. The dragons look fantastic. Being able to play this is a dream come true.

    These games aren't difficult by any means nor are they terribly long. If you played the Crash Bandicoot remaster then know this follows a similar formula as do most PS1 platformers.

    The flight levels could give some people trouble but that's about it. You have to be perfect with some objectives. These games are remembered for their fantastical elements and whimsy, not brutal difficulty. Most people would probably rate this an 8-9, but I give it a 10 based purely on my own nostalgia of the franchise and how grateful I am that we got an honest remaster without bloating the game with extra content to make it seem relevant. It knows what it is and doesn't try to be anything more.

    This is a great remaster of a beloved series, it brings back all the memories from childhood of playing this game every year at christmas. TheThis is a great remaster of a beloved series, it brings back all the memories from childhood of playing this game every year at christmas. The gameplay is simple, polished and collecting all the gems and item from each level feels as good as ever.

    The remaster also adds quality of life improvements that are very welcoming. Pay no attention to the negative reviews, its just people moaning about the size of the game, the fact the you have to download the other two game (The first game is on the disk, they removed the codes you have to enter meaing you don't have to worry about purchasing it second hand. This is why they delayed the game)

    There was a reissue of my favorite game on PS 2. With flaws, but still great. The only thing that worries me is that the game takes 67 GB.

    Thank you for returning my childhood!

    Spyro was always my favourite platformer/colletathon series, and this enhanced package is everything I could have hoped for. The graphics areSpyro was always my favourite platformer/colletathon series, and this enhanced package is everything I could have hoped for. The graphics are nothing short of stunning, the atmosphere is perfectly captured and gameplay is tweaked ever so slightly for that quality-of-life improvement neglected by the recent Crash remakes. However, by sticking almost too rigidly too its original format, the age of the game style shows a little and playing through all three entries becomes a bit of a slog by the end.

    Spyro the Dragon is the simplest and least showy of the trilogy, and has such a distinct feel about it, with recurring visual flair. The world are a little bit less lively than its sequels but the revamped, unique dragons are one of the best parts of Reignited for me.

    Ripto's Rage is probably the best entry, expanding infinitely on its predecessor in terms of detail, characters and especially world design. While it succeeds in variety, it loses a bit in atmosphere, as the wolds sometimes don't make sense when placed side-by-side, but the wildly inventive challenges far outstrip the lack of consistency. Some trials (ice popcorn and railway cart spring to mind) are absolutely infuriating in this entry, be warned!

    Year of the Dragon is the final entry and is the most gimmicky, allowing you to play as a variety of crazy characters which is great fun but often detracts from the core Spyro mechanics/gameplay loop. Again, it's far more exciting and varied than the original, but by this stage my patience was wearing a bit thin!

    A word of advice - tackle each of the games with a break in between to break up the monotony and stop yourself poking holes in the admittedly solid gameplay loop! This said, these remakes are lovingly crafted and more than make up for the lackluster Crash series last year. Collecting absolutely everything in the game is easier and more satisfying than ever, and you'll net three platinum trophies in no time compared to other games! Alongside Resident Evil 2, remakes are killing it recently!

    Glitchy, off-putting wannabe of the originals that lacks the ingenuity and talent that made the originals work. It's all too easy for theseGlitchy, off-putting wannabe of the originals that lacks the ingenuity and talent that made the originals work. It's all too easy for these multi-billion dollar companies to slap together a lazy, soulless remake in Unreal Engine to make money from desperate fans of a dead franchise. Convenience kills creativity. Ugly, lifeless Fortnite-style graphics that are inferior to the PS1 version in both style and design. Terrible physics and game breaking glitches abound that were never present in the originals. The re-orchestrated music is so-so and incomparable to Stewart Copeland's original work. Don't waste your time with this assembly line trash, play the original PS1 versions instead. Expand
