"A Hero's Tail" flames the Dragonfly

M. L. Caron "Gamer Mom", Amazon

  • Summary: When I heard about "A Hero's Tail" I had mixed feelings. After "Dragonfly", I wasn't sure about even trying the latest in the series. Well, I was wrong -not only did I try it, I had trouble turning off the PS2. While Vivendi/Universal hasn't got the touch Naughty Dog/Insomniac did, "Tail" comes closest. The graphics are good, the levels big, challenging and fun. Sargeant Byrd is about the best part of the game. His mini-games I went back and played repeatedly.

Fun but different

Opus, Amazon

  • Summary: After the last game Spyro Enter The Dragonfly, I wasn't about to put out 50 bucks again so I decided to rent it first. Turns out it's not bad. It's not the same as the first 3 but it's ok. The levels are huge, the graphics are vivid and the controls work really well. The story and missions are about the same but hey, it's Spyro. I think that the music and "Monet Skies" that were used in the first 3 Spyro's gave it a magical feel and that is lacking in this game.

Good, but far from Spyro's glory days

Harper Johanson, Amazon
4 November 2004
  • Summary: I have always been a rabid Spyro fan, probably more so than what others would consider mentally healthy. The first three Spyro's are still my favorite video games fo all time. I, like many Spyro fans were, was disgusted with Enter The Dragonfly, which I bought out of loyalty despite bad reviews. When I saw a video for Spyro A Heroes Tail I had some hope, as it did not appear choppy and laggy like its predecessor.

Not the Spyro we know, but can we complain?

John Roberts, Amazon

  • Summary: By now any follower of Spyro the Dragon will know how much he's devolved ever since he was out of Insomniac's hands and this goes to show how Sierra can royally screw up a franchise. In saying that, who played Skylanders? As a 4-year old fan now in his 20s, I can say that was a great game. It may not have been Spyro, but if you think of it as "a cameo appearence", you'll love it even more. But onto the game at hand.

A Very Near Bull's Eye Overall

Nana "I Heart Square Enix", amazon.co.uk
30 January 2011
  • Summary: Spyro a Hero's Tail is an excellent installment in the 'old' Spyro lineup. Graphically and game play-wise Sierra have done justice to the purple dragon and brought the PS1 games into the latest era of gaming. But the old days of a good plot have been forgotten. The game begins with a very hurried and superficial 'review' of the starting situation, literally giving a minute long 'update' along the lines of "well, there's this new bad guy. And he's the bad guy.

spyro:A hero's tail (ps2)

sarah, Amazon

  • Summary: this game is good and fun and ithink little spyro is super cute. the game play is really cute but i think you should give it a miss if you are not the most pacient of people. sometimes it can take alot of tries to complete a section.i am curently stuck on a bit but i am not the best of spyro players. if u love spyro defo give this a go personaly i would go for one of the used ones so if you dont like it it's not a big loss.
