Clearly the product of a talented group of developers who apparently give a damn about whether or not anyone actually likes playing their games. And unless there's something severely wrong with you, you will certainly like playing this one.
So I have no idea why there is only the third one of the trilogy here, but its a tough one.
Its the best and at the same time, the worst, the best because it has all the important additions from 2 and builds on top of that with stuff as crazy as other playable characters! So why its the worst? Because it lacks the polish 2 had and playing other characters, as fun as it might be always feels worse than playing Spyro. It feels like Insomniac was tired with the series, did not know what to with it or simply there wasn't enough time.
I picked up my cousin's PS1 a while back and played this for the first time. And I have to admit it was pretty fun, colorful and immersive. When you first look at it, it seems like a quirky kid's game but still ramps up the challenge and can be really addicting to adventure around and keep unlocking secrets and challenges. Sure, it doesn't look very good but we'll give it a break for its age.
This is the worst part of Spyro. The level design is soooooo bad and frustrating. The high difficulty of challenges (I'm not talking to enemies specifically) don't even related to the plot. Why TF do I have to play hockey to win eggs? What's the point if the plot is very simple to follow? Why do I have to spent hours to fly through loops and races if it's not even related to the story? I understand that it's a mini game, but why is it so badly designed? In first two games it was fine, I have no complains, but this is the worst part. And the level design is genuinely very bad. There are some good constructed levels, but most of them are badly performed and repetitive.
I was very disappointed in this part.
