[PS1] Spyro the Dragon
« on: May 04, 2015, 07:23:42 PM »
SPYRO THE DRAGON

Ahh, Spyro, Such a dear game to my family. I won't let that get in the way of my review, but I just wanted to get that out there. ::)

Spyro the Dragon is a 3D action/collect-a-thon platformer game starring Spyro the dragon.

The plot is that Gnasty Gnorc (the bad guy) has learned a spell to turn gems into creatures to fight for him and how to imprison the dragons of Spyro's world in crystal. Spyro was able to hide and escape Gnasty's spell and must save the rest of the dragons, collect the missing treasure, and toast Gnasty.

The sounds are vibrant and unique, with each level and each enemy being unique in music and voice. The style of music is unique and every song feels fitting to the area.

The controls are solid and easy to pick up. It is a little hard to get used to the controls after playing Spyro 2 or 3, though. The gameplay involves a lot of scavenger hunting and puzzle solving. Combat is also a very large part of the game. Each of the 5 or so home worlds has a completely different feel and plenty of levels to fit the theme.

The graphics are colorful and vibrant. They are very cartoonish, especially with character design. The game uses a unique fog effect where models look more detailed the closer you are.

Spyro himself separates himself from other platforming heroes with his abilities to glide, charge, and spit fire. He can also fly during certain levels.

Gems are very satisfying to collect and each dragon saved give a short, and often humorous conversation.

9/10 This game is a champion of it's time.
Nice Crash! *
