    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 The gameplay feels a bit outdated, but the visuals definitely do not.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.

The graphics and characters, especially the elder dragons and non-playable characters are outstanding, colorful and full of life compared to their original versions. The new controls are spectacular. Good riddance to the god awful camera controls in original Spyro 1, as you can now fully control the camera yourself.

    I personally only played the original Spyro 1, a couple years ago, to the point where I fully completed it. Because of this, I never played Spyro 2, nor Spyro 3. When I played Spyro 2 for the first time in my life through Reignited, it felt like a breath of fresh air, as the levels had more diversity and variety, something that was kind of well executed in Spyro 1, but Spyro 2 had greatly expanded on it. Spyro 2 isn't a blast from the past for me, it is a completely new experience. There's a reason why I bought a PlayStation 4.

    EDIT: Website messed up on my end and accidentally rated 0 for me.

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.

    I have never played the original Spyro games because I only had an N64 at that time and no Playstation, so I have absolutely NO nostalgia forI have never played the original Spyro games because I only had an N64 at that time and no Playstation, so I have absolutely NO nostalgia for these game at all. That being said, the remaster really brought these games into the modern age because they look and play absolutely FANTASTIC. I am pretty unforgiving when it comes to camera and controls and I am pleased to say that there's really not that much to complain about here, minus a few exceptions like the hard-to-control dash when you're doing precise platforming or the skateboard trick controls in Spyro 3.

    These games are pretty easy, short, and light on story, which makes them a lot of fun to play in between more demanding titles. Rarely though, there's an insane difficulty spike. One particular boss in Spyro 2 especially comes to mind. This is also an occurence where the controls and camera unfortunately work against, instead of for you.

    Nevertheless, I'd say that overall, Spyro 2 is my favourite out of the bunch. The first one is a little bland and random and seems very "video-gamey" in general. The second game feels much more like an interconnected world; the levels and characters are very inspired, there's a little progression to each of them and unique missions inside; and the overworlds are a lot more atmospheric and intricate. There's now also a use for the tons of gems you collect all the time in the form of unlocking abilities. In the first game, you didn't even really know why you should collect gems, other than to get 100% completion.

    The third game tries to expand upon the second one and to one-up it with more playable characters, skateboarding (did Tony Hawk come out between the second and the third game by any chance?), and other little segments that are seperate from the main levels, but I have to say, while most of these are fun (the last skateboarding level can suck my d**k, though), they feel kind of unnecessary and tacked-on just for the sake of making a BIGGER sequel. Spyro 2 just feels more cohesive and inspired and, if I ever replay one of these games, it's probably going to be the second one. Also, what happened with the Rhynocs in the last world of Spyro 3? That was one of my favourite things about the game up until then, seeing the Rhynocs in different costumes for every level. In the last world, they just disappear for the most part and are replaced by regular enemies. What gives?

    Overall, these games are pure, simple video game fun. If you're looking for an intense challenge or an amazing story, you're going to have to look elsewhere. Spyro also never reaches the intricate platforming genius of the Mario titles. But if you're just looking to have a good, simple time for a few hours, you're absolutely in the right place.
