The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning PS2 Review
31 May 2010
Excerpt: The Playstation versions of Spyro were cherished by many, but it was when next gen versions arrived, that it was evident that people were becoming increasingly tired of the series, perhaps discovering more enjoyment out of similar games like the Ratchet and Clank (also developed by Insomniac Games who were the original developer of the Spyro series) and the Jak series’. This is perhaps why Krome Studios have attempted to reinvent the franchise with this sixth instalment.
Excerpt: The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning is an attempt to reinvent the game series starring the purple dragon raised by dragonflies after a string of mediocre games that were not well-received by gamers or critics.

Conclusion: Personally, I really enjoyed this new version of Spyro, though in my heart the original will always be the classic “Spyro the Dragon” on the Playstation. I would defiantly recommend this game as one to get! However I will leave you to decide as some have commented this could be a step too far for our fiery friend!

Excerpt: With the multitude of First Person Shooters and games where you take aim at people in numerous different ways, we here at DarkZero Towers (check Google Earth… it’s real!!) are not ashamed of opening our hearts to a cutesy platformer every now a then. The genre has being a bit barren recently with little to no interesting releases coming our way… that was of course until Spyro tired to reinvent himself.
