Don't Chase This Dragon

Game Informer
22 September 2009
  • Excerpt: I can now see why purple dragons are associated with drug use. In this final installment of the Legend of Spyro series, the player's quest to rid the world of the evil takes a backseat to the tireless battle against the game itself. The longer you play it, the more it breaks and aggravates.

  • Excerpt: Spyro, the friendly dragon hero, has been around since the early days of the Sony PlayStation. It has always been hailed as a unique and original premise. There simply aren’t many dragon hero games out there worth playing.

  • Summary: Not even Elijah Wood can rescue this game from its frustrating 3D platforming.
  • Pros: Good voicework with an all-star cast, Musical score is fitting and evolcative
  • Cons: Control is finicky, especially during combat, Frustrating platforming, no thanks to lame-brained AI partner, Graphics are way behind the times

  • 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

  • Excerpt: Wie auch im letzten Jahr bringt Sierra neben Crash Bandicoot auch ein Spyro-Abenteuer für die Wii heraus. Waren die beiden Titel damals vom Gameplay recht ähnlich, sollen sie diesmal getrenntere Wege gehen. Auch soll die Legende von Spyro angeblich ein Ende finden.

Test: The Legend of Spyro - Dawn of the Dragon

1 December 2008
  • Conclusion: Im Gegensatz zu den großen Versionen macht „Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon“ auf dem DS eine richtig gute Figur. Zwar könnte wie so oft der Umfang etwas größer sein ( Fünf Stunden sind einfach zu wenig) und auch der Schwierigkeitsgrad richtet sich eher an die jüngeren Zocker, doch aufgrund der guten...
  • Pros: gute Grafik, zwei spielbare Charaktere, guter Sound, zwei unterschiedliche Gameplay-Abschnitte

  • Conclusion: Die ausländischen Libellen haben bei der Entwicklung von Dawn of the Dragon viel versucht und nur sehr wenig richtig gemacht. Insbesondere ist es interessant zu beobachten, wie die Entwickler versucht haben, viel aus der Grafik herauszuholen, indem eine hohe Weitsicht oder ganze Armeen dargestellt...
