Right when I just finished the first game in this trilogy, I was ready to move on to the next game, but after seeing how poorly this game was reviewed by both fans and critics, I was genuinely concerned. To my surprise, though, I found this game very entertaining.
The story intrested me in how dark it was getting, compared to the first. The gameplay, while imperfect, was enjoyable. My only, real problem with this game is its difficulty. Some parts are balanced, and fun, while others are Dark Souls level of frustrating. The game can even be unfair in some instances.
But, despite that, I really loved this game.
I recommend this to anyone who LOVES a huge challenge.
This game is decent. I couldn't care lesss about its story but the graphic design is very unique. There is a mystic, dark, fantasy vibe in every level. And the gameplay is also good except there is a bit too much fighting but finally a 3D platform game that is not easy (coming after Jak 3 and R&C GC).
I hadn't played any spyro games before this one and later I tried to play Spyro:Reignited Trilogy on PS4, which was terrible.
If you liked A New Beginning, then there is little reason why you shouldn’t pick up The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night. The game uses the same basic combat system and adds a few new elements to it. Just don’t go expecting too much more.
A solid platformer with some nice visuals and simple but enjoyable gameplay. It doesn't have any huge, glaring deficiencies to speak of, but at the same time, it's simply not cut from the sort of stock that makes a classic.
i like the combat, exploration, bosses and all that, the atmosphere is really dark and edgy which i didn't mind as this was my first introduction into something like that, i really enjoyed this game way back and i still like playing it, the game is hard and challenged me way back, and still somewhat now, it's a difficult game, but it's certainly doable and rewarding when you beat a difficult boss. Voice acting is alright and i think the creature design is solid, the areas you visit i remember well, overall i would recomend this to people that don't like the darker aproach to spyro and want something on the more difficult side, though there are certainly better dark, difficult games out there like a certain game everyone wants to compare everything to. I think the music is great and fits the mood of every area, great ost for this one overall. I haven't played the first of the legend of spyro trilogy, but i have played some of the third, i dropped that after a bit but i plan to get back to that and i'll probably play the first one at some point, that one doesn't seem as dark, a bit more varied in light and dark tones seems like. I like this game.
Even more wooden-hearted and mean-spirited than A New Beginning. Pros: Again, good graphics and visuals. Cons: Again, generic and formulaic, and refuses to push the boundaries of whatever genre it "claims" to be.
The Legend of Spyro: A new Beginning was bad, but this one just blows it out of the water. So bad so that I'm unable to understand how some people, especially some critics, were able to write positive reviews. In fact, there's nothing redeemable about this game. The story is bad, the art and music are lame and forgettable, but the gameplay is where it truly stinks. The platforming is scarce, boring and simplistic, while the combat (which composes 99% of the game) is repetitive, boring, and artificially difficult. It's already annoying that the combat is so lame, but why is it so unfairly tough? Spyro has no invincibility frames, so chances are that if you're surrounded by enemies (which happens all the time, since you're facing waves of dozens at a time) you'll be stun-locked to death. And the bosses are a pain to deal with, most of them don't have any build-up animations, and their AI is awful.
Make yourself a favour and don't play this game.
The story is lame, the game's difficulty balance is terrible and overall it isn't a good game or worth your money or time. Do not bother ever putting this game in your Ps2 because you will be dissapointed.
SummaryThe Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night continues the strong action-infused gameplay focus established in The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning and takes it even further with new powers, including: Four new, upgradeable Breath Attacks (one for each element type), such as Ice Bomb, Electric Orb, Earth Vine, Enhanced Fire; Four new elemental...
