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. Your AI partner has a knack for getting stuck on geometry. The framerate chugs and audio skips rear their ugly heads far too often.

The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon

Game Over Online
9 February 2009
  • 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. Enter Dawn of the Dragon, this year’s Wii entry to the series, and the third of the Spyro trilogy. Much of the style and content from the previous entries is here, but so are some hitches that hold this game back from what it could have been.

The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon (Wii) Review

Vooks
5 January 2009
  • Excerpt: The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon is a competent, but unimaginative conclusion to the Legend of Spyro trilogy. It is technically excellent, features great art direction and superb audio, but suffers with mediocre gameplay, overly simple puzzles and a generic, recycled narrative. Aimed at children, it is most often quite light-hearted, but it does explore some deeper themes of friendship, trust, and good and evil.

Nintendo World Report
20 November 2008
  • 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

Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon Review

TGSN
29 April 2009
  • Excerpt: Spyro the Dragon has had some ups and downs over the years, more recently it has been on the downs with this new revamped trilogy not really taking hold as the games of old did. Does DoD change all that?

The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon

  • Excerpt: Det er næsten lige så svært at få et overblik over Spyro-seriens tidslinje, som det er at åbne en dåse flåede tomater med de bare næver. Selvom der er flere hjemmesider dedikeret til at tæmme tidslinjens kaotiske omfang, kan det stadig være svært at få helt fod på serien, der har dragen med det græske navn ”Spyro” i hovedrollen - med mindre man har været med fra starten. Nu er Spyro så nået til Playstation 3, hvor historien føreres videre i samme episke stil som hidtil.

  • 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. Wir werden ja jetzt sehen, wie sich unser beliebter violetter Drache in seinem neuen, vielleicht auch letztem, Abenteuer mit dem Titel Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon schlägt.
