Reviews: Spyro The Dragon
A Quest in Varying Quality
The first three games, developed by insomniac, are some of my favorite games of all time, perhaps because it holds a certain amount of nostalgia to me. You see, I grew up on these games, and the fourth game of the series marked my Start Of Darkness into cynical adulthood. The entire series after four got worse. I consider, however, the series post-continuity reboot to be its own series for obvious reasons. If you're a fan of old-school classic platformers, then the first three games, undeniably, are for you. And now, onto the controversial part. I don't, personally, like A New Beginning for several reasons.
- It completely gets rid of the canonical story from the first three games
- Anthropomorphic Dragonflies
- You don't collect gems
- Ripped off God of War style attacks
- The voice acting
