  • Summary: After years of playing Spyro games on the Playstation,I was ecstatic that there was a Spyro game in the DS platform.I expected a full 3D enviroment complete with first person action,components that I adored on the Playstation versions of Spyro.But what I got was neither.The game differs greatly from other Spyro games I've played before.You control Spyro from what I would call an aerial view.You control Spyro's movements but you're not at the foot of the action.And the...

Spyro: Shadow Legacy (DS): A shadow of his former self

  • Summary: Spyro, the little purple dragon that started gracing our screens back in 1998. Insomniac Games, the creators that bought us the amazing original trilogy of games, left this series along time. Fastforward to 2005 and for this game, Spyro was in the hands of Amaze Entertainment. But was the little purple dragon struggling under a different studio or was he still kicking butt, dragon style! Story: Nothing is easy in life when it comes to Spyro!
  • Pros: Visuals, audio and character animations.
  • Cons: Controls, constant scrolling and underwhelming story. It's just not Spyro anymore.

Spyro's going through an difficult phase.

  • Summary: Insomniac games created Spyro the purple dragon way back in 1998. Since then he has made many appearances on all the main gaming platforms. His move to the Nintendo DS however has not been well received however, the gameplay is awkward and limited by the necessity of the DS's two 2D screens. The game starts with Spyro in bed, when he wakes he faces the usual challenges a small purple dragon faces when he gets up - defeating enemies and protecting the realm.
  • Pros: Spyro collectors will be thrilled he's on the DS
  • Cons: Poorly conceived gameplay, Poor 2D environment. Poor gameplay.

  • Conclusion: At the beginging and the end of the game I was really stuck in to it, but the constant having to level up and gain skills before progessing ruined the enjoyment for me, certainly not a game for children as you can lose interest very easliy.

Not like past Spyro games

  • Conclusion: At first play I was real into the game and was eager to restart. Then came the let down. To progress in the game you were to build up experience to learn new skills. But building up experience meant hours (no lie - hours) wondering around killing bad guys. The repetitiveness and utter boredum ruined the enjoyment Spyro used to provide.
