Spyro: Shadow Legacy Review

GameSpot
5 January 2006
  • Summary: Spyro: Shadow Legacy is a watered-down action role-playing game that isn't challenging or engaging enough to sustain its brief campaign.
  • 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

Spyro: Shadow Legacy

Game Over Online
30 November 2005
  • 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.

Expert Review

Game Freaks 365
20 November 2005
  • 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.

Spyro : Shadow Legacy

20 December 2005
  • 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.
