Excerpt: The Spyro games started out as a series of fairly fun action-adventure platformers for the PlayStation. They were funny and kid-friendly, without being overly kiddie. Recently, the series has enjoyed releases on the PS2 and Game Boy Advance. Spyro: Shadow Legacy is the latest incarnation of the series and it's available on the Nintendo DS.
Excerpt: Spyro the Dragon. That crazy purple dragon is back in action. You probably remember having some fun with him on the Playstation? Yeah collecting jewels and whatnot, starting stuff on fire... Good times.
Excerpt: , Spyro the dragonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s peaceful existence is once again thrown into turmoil when various members of the local community are mysteriously warped into an alternate dimension called the Ã¢â‚¬ËœShadow Realm.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ A dark, mirrored version of SpyroÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s world, the Shadow Realm now inexplicably holds all those it has taken in bondageÃ¢â‚¬â€�and, naturally, only Spyro can rescue them. Who is behind this evil deed? Is it the mystical Fairies?
Excerpt: After Attack of the Rhynocs and the unsuccessful Spyro Orange, Vivendi Universal Games is bringing the Spyro franchise to the Nintendo DS for the first time. The result: a flawed combat system mixes with a pseudo-RPG system of experience and new attacks to create a semi-enjoyable game for fans of the series. This time around Spyro finds himself seemingly helpless when his friends leave on vacation and he returns to an abandoned beach where the Elders go missing.
Excerpt: Spyro: Shadow Realm is more than a little shady. In fact, it's all we can do to keep from making a dragon-doo joke. But this one is for the kids, so let's keep it clean. Spyro: Shadow Legacy is a deeply flawed game, with unfinished, glitchy gameplay. It doesn't take long for the game to get repetitive, and the fact that half of the game is just the first half with a different color palette doesn't help. Check Laurie's review for the lowdown on Spyro: Shadow Legacy.
Pros: ups: cute purple dragon, easy to play, nice backrgound music
