The Reignited Trilogy is finally out so it's time to start covering the new details. To begin with I've created a new page for the brand new Spyro the Dragon Skill Points and one for all of the Spyro the Dragon Achievements/Trophies complete with a couple of maps to help you find certain hidden items. I'll be adding more for Spyro 2 and 3 soon.

In the meantime don't forget that all the old walkthroughs for Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage (and Skill Points), and Spyro: Year of the Dragon (and Skill Points) still work just fine for their reignited versions (but I will of course still be updating them with new details in the days to come).

The reviews have started to roll in so here we go once again with the round-up for the Spyro Reignited Trilogy. The reviews all seem to be generally positive with praise for the collection's updated graphics and quality of life improvements but do call the game out for issues with camera controls as well as other general criticisms of the core gameplay that also apply to the originals.

Quote: Glitched Africa - 9.8/10
Everything in Spyro Reignited Trilogy just works. Toys for Bob took the original games and made them from scratch without changing anything but the visuals and you would never believe that the core of the experience is over twenty years old now.


Quote: Gamereactor - 9/10
Everything from the individual blades of grass that singe when you breathe fire, the lighting as the sun beats down on Cliff Town from the first game, to Spyro's own facial animations is smooth and polished, so much so that it really feels like a game made for 2018.


Quote: PlayStation Lifestyle - 9/10
Many video games don’t age well, but Spyro Reignited Trilogy feels like the game didn’t age at all. Toys for Bob applied the fountain of youth to a 20-year old series, and the little purple dragon is just as perky and fired up as ever.


Quote: Press Start - 9/10
Visually the game is absolutely stunning – the level of detail in each world looks as good as my imagination saw it as a child. The colours are vibrant and vivid, and gone are the jagged polygons that were once buildings; it is here we can see that the games have come a long way.


Quote: Hardcore Gamer - 4.5/5
The Spyro games were legitimately great for the time, though, and thanks to an near-perfect balance between preservation and updating, Spyro Reignited Trilogy is every bit as excellent by today’s standards.


Quote: Venture Beat - 88/100
Similar to what the Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy did last year with its trio of PlayStation classics, Reignited Trilogy makes Spyro look modern without abandoning the tone and style of the originals.


Quote: Game Informer - 8.5/10
Given just how different the worlds look in remastered form, I found this trilogy to be more interesting and enjoyable to return to than Crash’s. These games don’t preserve history as well, but that’s okay. Having already lived through them, it’s fascinating to see how the worlds have been reimagined and differ from the vision I had in my head.


Quote: IGN - 8.5/10
Toys for Bob has nailed the feel of controlling Spyro. He leaps, glides, and charges with the momentum I remember, but with much more adorable animations.


Quote: God is a Geek - 8/10
Whether you played it back in the 90s or are trying it out for the first time, Spyro Reignited Trilogy is a laidback platformer that offers plenty of hours of gameplay and a humour that’s relatable to kids and adults alike.


Quote: The Sixth Axis - 8/10
As a package, Spyro Reignited is a fantastic experience, and Toys for Bob have done an amazing job in updating the series whilst maintaining its feel. This truly is a Spyro for today rather than a quick cash-in that plays off your nostalgia.


Quote: Critical Hit - 7.5/10
This easy platformer is as charming and engaging as ever, with its slapstick humour, colourful worlds and improving level and objective designs. But it’s the smaller details that let it down, with persistently troublesome camera controls in some stages and some jarring audio implementations in others.


Quote: Sirus Gaming - 7/10
Despite the new look and personality that Unreal Engine 4 is able to give the game, it isn’t without its flaws. For one, the character details, mainly for the supporting cast, can at times look a bit smudged and plastic-like.


The game is out on Tuesday the 13th of November worldwide on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
