Fanon Discontinuity: Most fans prefer to forget this game ever happened. Some even jokingly pretend they never made more Spyro games after the original trilogy.
It's Short, So It Sucks: Even those that can forgive the other flaws of the game criticise its length. Due to its rushed development, the game featured only a single hub of eight worlds (eleven counting the three speedways now hidden inside worlds) and one boss.
Misblamed: Some had assumed that Insomniac Games made this game, and hated on them for it, when in reality, they had nothing to do with it. In fact, they themselves hated the game.
