Decent 3D platformer

Jackson C, Amazon
18 February 2005
  • Summary: This is my favorite non-Insomnia Spyro game. Hopefully Spyro will return in his own series someday. The platforming is pretty good, especially now that Spyro has a double jump. The story is almost nonexistent. The main villain, Red, is shown to have no motivations aside from 'wanting power'.

A fun game

  • Summary: This spyro game was fun but not nearly as great as the old Spyro playstation games. Nothing will ever be better than those games to me but if you are looking to play a new spyro game I would say that this is the best of the PS2 spyro games.

"A Hero's Tail" flames the Dragonfly

M. L. Caron, Amazon
13 February 2005
  • 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.

It was okay...

Amazon

  • Summary: It was better than Enter the Dragonfly, but the first three games are still the best! Plus, a lot of these were different. The buttons are a little different, and Moneybags has got this weird accent.

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.

Good, but far from Spyro's glory days

Harper Johanson, Amazon
13 February 2005
  • 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.

An Old Hero Back In Full Flight

tom1clare, Ciao
19 August 2007
  • Excerpt: With the arrival of each new generation of gaming comes a whole new set of trends, as well as the odd anomaly that is difficult to predict. A gaming character/franchise can survive the risky jump to a more powerful format – Mario managed it many times, and so too did Sonic (at least for a awhile).
  • Pros: Undemanding fun, well - designed, technically sound, long and rewarding
  • Cons: Unoriginal, perhaps slightly too easy, the odd frustrating mini - game

A Very Near Bull's Eye Overall

Nana, Amazon
18 February 2005
  • 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.
