Summary: The game looks fantastic and I was looking forward to playing it with my son. However, 20 minutes in you have a ledge jumping puzzle in 3D where you carry a rock that makes you unable to fly effectively. Sigh. I may go back and get past it by myself, but for now I consider the game to be broken by design. It is possible to get past this, but an exercise in frustration.
Summary: I know that some will disagree with me but this game was very disappointing to me and my family. We have enjoyed the Spyro series over the years and eagerly anticipated this PS3 version. Unfortunately, the designers seemed to want to "upgrade" the game to be a much more complex and difficult game. At the same time, they eliminated useful capabilities that would make it enjoyable.
