I only just completed this a few days ago.
I have it on PS2.
The only consoles I have is PS2 and PS3.
I used to have the regular Playstation when I was younger so I have played the first games. smilie

I don't have any problem with this reboot. smilie

V she would look weird totally black...

VVVV That's what confused me when Cynder appeared in SSA.

In her game debut she was black and yet she's purple like Spyro in Skylanders.

I thought i was going mad when i saw her.

In a race against time,Spyro must relize his destiny and unlock the explosive powers that lie within if he is to put and end to the mysterious black dragon,Cynder!

Join Spyro on this epic quest of intense action!

Urgh, this game is actually quite repetitive, and I know that video games in general are repetitive, but this just takes the cake seriously. It's so old fashioned. It's definitely one of those games where I need to take a long break from.

Ahhh, the start to an amazing trilogy... I miss the days when only X-box and Playstation/ PS2 were the only consols. I played this on X-box (I rented it, well my dad did) and then after a couple of years i was like, 'OMG it's on PS2! so I bought it and Loved it. This sereise deserves more praise, it had great story line, amazing voice actors and dayam those graphics!

Don't get me wrong, I LOVED Spyro and Spyro 2 (have never played year of the dragon smilie) But I think this series is overall the best spyro series ever!

I've gone ahead and bought this game on Amazon for about £5, I think that's a reasonable price for what it's worth. I'm looking forward to trying it out after about four years of not playing it. Maybe I'll appreciate the game a little more this time round? I don't know yet.

Well I've played a bit of this game today, caught a little bit of nostalgia, just reminds me of the time when I first got this game with a friend, and we stayed up all night playing it, and beating it in one night.

Anyway, it's not too bad, but nothing spectacular. I do appreciate the level design this time round, and some of the combat. It's just a bit bland and is missing something.

Most replayed Spyro game. smilie

This soundtrack is fantastic IMO.

I've been meaning to buy this game again to try it out, but I do remember either being really bored of playing it, and the times when I got frustrated with the enemies.

There was one level I did enjoy though, and that was the Tall Plains. Even though I thought it kind of didn't suit Spyro, the level in itself was good.

I really like this game. This was my first PS2 game, and i was SO happy to play it! Before it i played spyro 1 & 2 but this was..i don't know...i felt in love with this. Maybe a little too easy, but the story and the "new" combat system are awesome! Still now!
