|Gnasty Gnorc decides to make the dragons pay for all of the insults they have directed his way. After dabbling in magic, Gnasty turns the gems that litter the world into his soldiers and changes the dragons into crystals. However, the magic spell missed a young dragon named Spyro. You must guide Spyro through 36 levels spread across six worlds as he tries to free his brethren from their crystalline prisons. To make his way through each stage, Spyro can run, jump, glide, walk, roll, and fly. When he encounters an enemy, he can dispose of them with fire-breath or a charge attack. When the going gets really tough, power-ups upgrade the fire-breath to a fireball or superflames. Try to save the other dragons and return the world to normal in SPYRO THE DRAGON.|

When Spyro the Dragon first came out for the Playstation, I never read any reviews for it. The cover featured an adorable purple dragon with an attitude. What more could anyone ask for! Playing the game was even more satisfying. Playing the game could keep one up all night...literally. It was incredibly addictive.
To recap, the game is a 3D platformer in which you play Spyro, a little purple dragon. He can breathe fire, charge and glide He is accompanied by his dragonfly pal Sparx, who serves as a health bar. Sparx is yellow when he's at full charge. He turns blue when Spyro gets hit once, green when hit again, then disappears when hit three times. In order to strenthen Sparx again, you feed him butterflys, which can be found by charging/flaming various animals depending on the stage you're on. Most notably, sheep. The game has Spyro battling Gnasty Gnorc and his goons in order to free his fellow dragons, who have been improsoned by Gnasty in stone. There are a few worlds, each with their own portal, to find dragons to free. The game is accompied by a great musical score with a unique and rather charming sound. Each world and portal is large enough to explore once and most likely miss something. Completing the game is no easy feat, and is by no means done quickly. Puzzles and bosses are not impassable, but just tough enough to keep you on your toes.
All in all, Spyro the Dragon is a must for anyone who has a Playstation. With addicting gameplay, loveable characters and dragons, there's really nothing to skip here. Not to mention classic comedy is a nice reminder of how good cartoons used to be. Even now I find myself going back and playing it over again. For someone like me, Spyro has a wonderful replay value. If you're looking for an overall good game for the PLaystation, Spyro the Dragon should definitely be on the top ten.
An absolutely wonderful game, sends me right back to my younger days 10 years ago. I had just bought the game for my 6 year-old and I know he's going to have a blast going through the many different levels and, what I miss the most, collecting the gems that have been scattered out across the world. To be quite frank Spyro stands a 10/10 standard in my eyes and there's not a single aspect of the game that I dislike. Well.. maybe those little blue egg thieves but that would be it! Not a single children's game could compare to this and I would highly recommend you getting a copy as soon as possible for your children or even for yourself if you'd like to reminisce this splendorous world of dragons or go through them for the first time. A must-have.
In a day and age when there can be significant advances each year in the action, graphics and complexity of gaming..... Spyro the Dragon is a fresh blast from the past for those who think retro gaming is cool.
This game has a number of levels, is intuitive and simple to play, has soothing background music, and basically gives a needed break from hectic life as you float, swoop and capture various crystals and point-accumulating prizes throughout the game.
Make no mistake. There is no spurting blood, no zombie invasions, no blowing apart villains or stealing police cars in Spyro. Sure there are games for that sort of thing. Rather, Spyro is fresh because it is non-violent, and it is innocent. Spyro is calming and maybe in some ways it captures a time earlier in the evolution of game play, when the whole family could sit together and hand the controller off to another member and just enjoy a game at a little slower pace.
Spyro is absolutely earlier generation. But if you can live with graphics that are a little less realistic and a little more dreamy floating around, this game gives a whole different feel, and gaming experience. In fact, my son and I have lately rediscovered games like this from those earlier times. In addition to Spyro, there was Frogger, Crash Bandicoot and many more like it. As far as Spyro, well there simply is nothing to not like about this game.
I bought this game mostly for my 7 year old, He had it a couple years ago and loved it, But to young to take care of it. So, I purchased it again. It you want a none violent game with lots of skill, and language that you don't mind you child to hear. This is it! Now my 5 year old daughter is learning to play it, She enjoys it when he will let her play. It is good for hand and eye coordination, But also remember to much video games are bad for them too.
I was feeling very nostalgic this pass Summer. I grew up with Spyro and other games like Crash Bandicoot. So feeling in such a mood, I began to hunt down a cheap copy of Spyro. It was more difficult that it should have been. Once I got it and popped in into an old PS2 I was immediately taken back in my past. It was just as much fun this time around at 19 years old than it was when I was seven and eight.
Easy, simplified gameplay doesn't bring down the value of this game, nor Spyro's adventure. In fact, it brings back something you don't find in games these days. While I am a fan of games like Halo, Borderlands and Call of Duty, this was a refreshing experience in generation where games didn't have to have blood shed to be enjoyable.
