Purple With a Punch

GIN

  • Excerpt: It's a purple haze! No, this isn't a Jimi Hendrix tribute concert I'm talking about; it's another Spyro game, with emphasis on the word "another." No matter how many times the little purple dragon graces gamers' consoles, people never seem to tire of him.

The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: The fall of a beloved videogame icon is perhaps the greatest tragedy in the gaming world - the more revered the series or character, the more devastating the fall is. I was a fan of the Spyro the Dragon series back during the purple dragon's glory days on the PlayStation.

  • Conclusion: The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon is a decent platforming title for the PS3, but it's definitely not the cream of the crop. So many other games have done what this game does and they have done it better.

  • Excerpt: Spyro the Dragon, much like Crash Bandicoot, was the closest thing Sony fans had to a mascot back in the 90s. Thanks to Sony, the Spyro the Dragon franchise has really established itself as a solid platform-adventure series of games.

  • Pros: Impressive audio, voice acting, and soundtrack, Fun to use elemental abilities, Some good moments in co-op
  • Cons: Awful control scheme, Free Flight mode poorly implemented, Poor A.I.

  • Summary: When he first debuted on the scene just over 10 years ago, Spyro the lovable purple dragon starred in a series of truly excellent platformers on the original PlayStation. But oh, how the fire-breathing have fallen.
  • Pros: Gorgeous visuals and a thrilling score create a vivid fantasy world, Convenient local co-op lets second player drop in or out at any time, Good variety of elemental powers at your disposal
  • Cons: Combat is uninteresting and sometimes tedious, Unfocused level design can lead to aimless wandering, When playing solo, the AI-controlled teammate can sometimes get stuck, Control of the camera is too limited, Story borrows too much inspiration from elsewhere

  • Summary: Man k�nnte sagen, dass die Legende um Spyro nun endlich sein Ende gefunden hat. Sicherlich, der dritte Teil ist nicht wirklich schlecht und zumindest etwas besser als die beiden Vorg�nger, aber ausgereift kann man ihn wirklich nicht nennen.
