Welcome to the brand new home for the site, www.darkspyro.net. Finally moved from the free hosts that have been vanishing as soon as we're established on them, but we're going to be staying at this .net location for quite a while now.

Since we went offline on the 28th of last month, I've finally managed to complete my Season of Flame guide along with a map showing the locations of the chests and keys as well as all of the eight items to flame/freeze/electricute in each level. I've also gone over a few of the older guides and spruced 'em up a little, there's not much new in them, but still. The Character Guide additions were put on hold just before the site went offline, but I'm going to start doing that again from Wednesday onwards. Oh, and a new small website has been setup to host all of my guides, see that at darkFAQs.

Some Spyro reviews are in, and it's not looking too good for Shadow Legacy if you're to believe them. IGN give it a 4/10, Eurogamer also gave it the same, Nintendo Power have apparently given it a 6.5/10 and Planet Gamecube gave it a 5.5/10. Check out some user reviews at GameFAQs and GameSpot as well to see their views.

Wahey! That's that fixed hopefully. Everything for the site is uploaded to the new server and should now be working correctly. If you see a problem please don't hesitate to post it in the Bugs forum.

Yeah, don't believe all you hear about SL. Go to gamefaqs and ask around, they'll tell you what they think, its a pretty even draw between like and dislike!

I've always enjoyed gamershell better, because instead of other sites that only work on updates for top-name games, GH updates them all, it had the most and best screenshots prior to the release of AHT. Their review is just like what I said, glad to see a pro-spyro and moreover pro-family~friendly review and game site!

7/10 ... not too shabby!

Hey, Dark, I think you should put this game up on your side list, even if it was a slight debacle. It is "Spyro (The Fairy-Dressing Game)," I have box art, info and 4 screenshots here:

You should also make a section for the online games. I think I mentioned that before, but now you know again!

Yeah, I keep meaning to do a section for the "other" Spyro games but I've just not got around to it yet.

smilie And in a random internet search just found this:

Seems to be a mobile game similar to Shadow Legacy.

Shadow Legacy Updates:

New fan review gives it a 9.9/10. And a review in pending by a fan gives it a 9/10. (It was accidentally removed from before so its an old review).

Based on 32 reviews fans at gamspot give it an 8.0/10

Nintendo-Next gives it a 4.5/10. They were much more accurate with their info, you could tell they played the game all the way through, but i'm not too sure about that score.
