Excerpt: Spyro, the little purple dragon originally created by Insomniac Games, has appeared in more than a dozen different games since his debut in 1998. His games span just about every modern platform, but the little guy hasn't aged well at all. It's without surprise, then, that Spyro has found his way to the Nintendo DS in the form of Spyro: Shadow Legacy.
Pros: Lots of moves and abilities for Spyro to learn, Nicely drawn backgrounds and smoothly animated characters, Good music
Cons: Collision-detection issues make for some awkward moments, Simplistic gameplay offers no challenge, Repetitive missions get old quickly, Annoying sound effects
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: 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
Conclusion: Wer den kleinen Drachen mag, darf hier ruhig zugreifen. Es ist ein innovativer Titel, der mich zuerst nicht wirklich überzeugte, aber nach dem zweiten Blick begeistert hat. Man bekommt Abwechslung, Spannung, Gefahr und langen Spielspaß. Dennoch muss ich in meinem Fazit auch einen negativen Aspekt festhalten: Das Spiel wurde ohne Altersbeschränkung freigegeben.
Excerpt: Dans la veine d'un Crash Bandicoot, la série des Spyro suit son petit bonhomme de chemin depuis près de sept ans, et tout le monde se souvient avec un brin de nostalgie de la première aventure du petit dragon sur PSOne. Aujourd'hui, Spyro fait ses adieux à la GBA pour s'envoler vers un support plus prometteur : la Nintendo DS.
