Hopefully the new Reignited Trilogy does the series justice.
ShadowWarrior42 (26 days ago)
The last Spyro game I even gave a shit about was A Hero’s Tail and while I do achieve 100% completion it is decent at best. Yet even with that said I still to this day play the original trilogy from time to time because they’re timeless classics I’ll never truly grow tired of. Hell I’m gonna be playing through all three of them and getting 100% completion once again to get ready for Spyro Reignited so they can be fresh in my mind with it drops in September. Definite Day one buy for me, no question. I have full complete confidence in Toys For Bob after everything they’ve shown us so far and they’re doing a fantastic job faithfully recreated Spyro, so they’ve earned my purchase as far as I’m concerned.
Wizardcor 9 ... um sorry but by the footage of Spyro 1 and 2 remade (we will eventually see Spyro 3 as well) i dont think that its gonna bomb. Now Bubsy was wasted garbage that nobody asked to come back yet our memes caused the bobcat to recieve a nervewrecking unnecessary new game 21 years after the atrocity that was Bubsy 3D. Everyone thought Shaq-Fu gets no new game yet that one got a sequel and Barack Obama DLC. We live in a time where Shrek 5 and other weird stuff is happening. Toys for Bob making Spyros remake is nothing compared to that.
Nicholas Barton breh the reignited trilogy remakes Spyro 1, Spyro 2 Riptos Rage and Spyro 3 Year of the Dragon from the groundup just like how the N. Sane Trilogy remade Crash 1, Crash 2 Cortex Strikes Back and Crash 3 Warped anew. They even revived Stormy Ascent for the first game and made Future Tense for Crash 3. If there is any scrapped stage or general content left out of Spyros original Trilogy they could still do what Vicarious Visions did with Crash and revive that content as DLC. Spyro recieves the same treatment as Crash (while already getting Xbox along PS4 at launch) and if the game sells well, i can see PC and Switch versions or even new games like the original games happening. At least be glad they arent ignored like Banjo-Kazooie or Gex.

My favorite was the 4th 3d game. Ithis was always my favorite I overused three copies of the first three each till the game was Lazer burned. I would love a dark gritty remake. The kids have Skylanders.

Anyone else think a hero's tale was an awesome game? Everyone who criticizes it seems to brush it off as not good but they never show footage of all the different realms, the complex puzzles, side quests, good boss fights. It's the only spyro game i played yet it's one of my all time favorites. What makes it worse than the older games, it seemed like a masterpiece to me.

What's up with sound editing? It sounds like some parts were recorded in different rooms. Spyro was great. I finally got to play the oryginal trilogy a year ago. I had so much fun. I will definitely check out the reignited trilogy. As long as all if them will be on the disc.
Jason (2 days ago)
The closest new games we have to Spyro and Crash are Dark souls and Monster hunter. The action adventure genre, summarised perfectly in games like Kingdomhearts, Spyro, Jak and Daxter, is still alive in the form of much grittier games. I think giving Spyro to From software might be an excellent decision. Particularly if the only vision these guys have is to put new paint on an old game. Such wasted potential.

GEX Remaster when?
Eric Zronek (2 days ago)
spyro was dead after the third ps1 game, year of the dragon or whatever, whenever they changed spyro's format and gameplay style, it died. insomniac should just make a new spyro game like that, itd take little time, and you gotta get stewart coplan from the police to do the soundtrack like in the first game.

What killed it for me: Sparx started talking, Spyro looked like he was stoned 24/7 and the controls caused me to break a TV after the 3rd installment.

" The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon" (2008) was an AMAZING game. I loved it so much, mainly because you had to play it with a friend.
worksmagic89 (5 days ago)
Tbh I would like a new spyro game where he can fly any and everywhere like Dawn of the Dragon except they should not make him stuck to another dragon the whole time I felt like cynder was holding him back

MAKE MORE SPYRO GAMES!! Spyro was my childhood loved playing him. If they went back that would be cool if they went forward maybe making him older like the kids that originally played him maybe a little darker to draw in more younger players either way Spyro will always be a favorite

Shadow Legacy was dope.
Cyntaria (7 days ago)
I never played the GBA games but for as long as I can remember, I was obsessed with Gateway to Glimmer and Year of the Dragon as theywere the first games I ever played (along with Pokemon). My very first DS game was Spyro ShadowLegacy and I loved it. I honestly dislike the PS2 main games while my friends loved them. I absolutely love the Legend of Spyro reboot but as separate games from the Spyro I grew up with.

I would like to see a slightly dsrker spyro where hes an adult. They teased images in the old spyro book on the ps1. And i thought dawn of the dragon was a good game. Enter the dragonfly was..bad but still fun I guess
DarkSnake Nerdmaster (11 days ago)
I liked the remake trilogy, and I will go out and buy the remaster because I never played the originals. It's good to see spyro come back from the brink. Skylanders was basically a spyro game that didn't need spyro in it. You could take spyro out and the game would sell even better.

Spyro was murderd when they turned it to a full on combat game and gave spyro and sparx a complete different personality. And made it dark. Spyro should be magical , with mini games exploring secrets and collecting earning rewards. And trying to find out how the hell you get to the chest thats located on the other side of you. The biggest mistake they could make is change spyro completly with the legend of spyro and skylanders.

The physical copy of the game won't have the 3 games, only the first, the rest is a digital download.
Olfersisapotato (15 days ago)
There's so many reasons why I love the Legend of Spyro trilogy that I could speak for days but, I'll just speak my main reason here: Spyro and Igitus' voice actors. At first I didn't think much of it as a kid but later on I decided to see who voiced the characters in the game I grew up with since I was a wee little girl. Now hear me out, I know many of you know Elijah from Lord of the Rings but I have personally never evan seen it. Instead when I saw Elijah Woods Voiced LoS Spyro, all my mind could come up with was my favorite Tim Burton movie "9". And moving on to another subjecy, for many this movie is marked as a disney rip-off or is hated because of a certain dragon.... That's right I'm talking about Quest for Camelot. Now I know there are a few fans, me being one of them, but what really struck me is I never realized who voiced the villian of the movie... While it may not be his best role, it still warms my heart to find voice actors who voiced certain character's to have voiced someone you never would have guessed. Oh dear I'm rambling aren't I? Well even if Ruber wasn't Gary Oldman's best role it's still funny to imagine him with Ignitus' voice.
Christopher Garcia (16 days ago)
I only ever owned a copy of the first Spyro game. But I have seen the other two original games. I'm happy that Spyro, Like Crash, is getting a remaster and going back to his roots. I also did enjoy the Legend of Spyro games because it had a very interesting lore and storyline. Sure it was much darker and more combat based, but it was nice to see a more mature Spyro game. Also the voice of Elijah Wood playing Spyro was really cool. All in all Spyro is a very great game and it's wonderful to see him come back into the spotlight after so many years. I know Spyro: The Reignited Trilogy will brings back the old fans and as well as some new fans who could enjoy a fun loving purple dragon.

I hope the reignited trilogy gets a PC release like crash bandicoot did. Spyro 2 gate way to glimmer will always be my favorite of the trilogy. I never played season of ice and shadow legacy I also never played enter the dragon fly I tried to get season of ice on my emulator but the rom version I got was freezing every few moments even the rom of it on emulparadise or whatever that site is called had those freezing problem alsol. If someone knows where I get the roms for spyro season of ice and spyro season of flame without freezing every time tell me.

Ripto's Rage was my favorite Spyro title. And the decline and point of no return felt like the PS2 release of Enter the Dragonfly.

Gudrun Mobus Bernhards (22 days ago)
I was a huge fan. But "Enter the Dragonfly" was the incarnation of a game, kiddiefied. The controls were slowed down. The graphics slowed down the game, and the console actually lagged. And then in future games, they went ahead and tried to remake Spyro with -grit-. What a joke. The character is likeable in the first three games. Just. Ugh. Nobody wants teen-angst Spyro. We loved him because of his pure heart and spunky attitude. Nobody I know liked the asshole version. Insomniacs knew what they were doing.
Gudrun Mobus Bernhards (13 days ago)
I didn't own a gameboy, but if I ever get tempted to install the emulator in my phone, I'll know to visit these. Thanks for the heads up!

I did enjoy the reboot on the DS. I think the story was interesting, there was some challenge to the boss fights, and I really liked learning the different elemental attacks. Plus, Cinder was an awesome antagonist, and even better as a redeemed young dragon.

Sheisun (24 days ago)
For me, Spyro died when Skylanders came out. I very much enjoyed the simplistic platformer style of the first 5 console games, and the new combat-focusing gameplay of the The Legend of Spyro games somewhat refreshed Spyro as a franchise. I was so excited when I heard about the Spyro's Kingdom game, only to have my hopes and dreams crushed when it was revealed that Skylanders will take over instead. Skylanders just isn't a Spyro game. He isn't the main character. Also the design for him looks absolutely atrocious. I really hope the reignited trilogy will spark some new games to be made in the years to come (after they've milked all the life out of the Skylanders series).

What killed Spyro for me is when he started to breathe BUBBLES. That's when I started to lose interest.
Mighty Go-Go Guano (25 days ago)
Makes me wonder what an M-rated Spyro would be like. Spyro ripping throats out, banging Cynder, and saying some naughty words? Would Spyro just remorselessly stare at Ripto as the lava causes his skin to violently bubble and burst? Would the real final boss be Eric Hirshberg, and Spyro, with all his pent-up rage towards him, gore him with his horns?

Jakob Burke (25 days ago)
I love Spyro, but I'm not playing the Reignited Trilogy. The whole thing is a fuck up & disaster waiting to happen. They censored the guns in Twilight Harbor (they're paintball guns now), they changed sentences, they're adding more stuff to it, they are plotting to get rid of the descend on the first one, & so forth. The only good thing about the new game is the graphics. Everything else is fucked up. If you're going to make an HD trilogy, then make the fucking games, and don't add stuff to it. Because if you add stuff to it, censor it, fuck sentences up, & try to "make it better." Its not the original game. It's just a carbon copy. I love Spyro. But this trilogy is going to suck. Maybe next time they'll make a an actual new game instead of another carbon copy.

Kain White (28 days ago)
See i think a regular reboot or rivial would be plenty enough to bring him back but a dark and gritty spyro with storyline and advanced combat c'mon you mean too tell me a real looking dragon that is purple that can breate different elements kickin other dragon and bad guy ass wouldnt be cool that would be amazing to play lol
Synodic Scribe (29 days ago)
I think the remake of the original trilogy is a great way of giving Spyro back to the original fans and their own kids if they have any. It's bright, colorful, and fun to play. That being said, I believe games like A New Beginning showed he does have potential to be a more involved and gritty character in the right hands. Though I don't think Activision's hands are the best for that.
GreenTurtleinHD (29 days ago)
Dawn of the Dragon was my favorite
Xeno Watashi (29 days ago)
Well look at Nintendo they show that quality can save and increase the longevity of franchises. If Spyro and Crash had care similar to Mario and Zelda they would probably still be around. Or at least be a bigger player than they are now.
Uhm actually curiosity killed the Spyro

CosmicBiohazard (1 month ago)
Legend of Spyro’s only really mistake was being a Spyro game. They could have had any other dragon as the protagonist and the series would have recieved critical acclaim. putting Spyro in it and not having it be a collectathon is just, wrong. actually, basically everything from a Hero’s tail onward made that mistake. I can’t blame any of the GBA titles for being lower quality that the original trilogy because they were filler anyway, and though Skylanders had no need of plastering Spyro on the cover, his design alone as well as the fact that the game comes with those figurines tells you that if you’re looking for a Spyro game like you remember from the PS1 era, this is not it; unlike LOS and Heros tail which you could reasonably go into thinking there was a chance of it being a continuation of the PS1 trilogy formula.

zadose (1 month ago)
It's annoying how the first game takes place in a dragon world where a great story could be developed for Spyro.... like who's his parents? ...who took care of him? Where are other young dragons his age? Where are female dragons? Why aren't there more dragon characters? How does magic work? What is the dragon world/realm like and who runs it??? Cause seriously, the dragons are awesome.... yet so many games didn't FUCKING FOCUS on them..... LIKE IT'S DRAGONS PEOPLE..... it's already awesome.... MAKE A GAME ABOUT THEM!
Tyrik Flood-Feaster (26 days ago)
In spyro 3 , 4 and 5( This has female dragons and maybe spyro 4 as well) you see other dragons his age. Spyro 1 has Magic crafters dragons who make magic.

I can't pick a particular game,, only levels really. How many love the ninjas but curse the glitchy AF game lol, no matter PS2 or game cube! The PS1 games and Enter the Dragonfly are special to me, then he just goes dark. I don't want to war when playing spyro. I want jump off ledges looking for hidden rooms and caves. I want to smash walls with cracks looking for hidden treasures, I want brain teasing not the constant high gear fire fire fire combat. All this waring type gaming is not great for little kids either. But hey I have 2 PS1s, a PS2, PS3 BC, and PS4. I purchased Power Rangers, Crash trilogy and pre purchased the Spyro Reignited. Not too happy they changed the background music. Oh well, can't have it all right?
Tyrik Flood-Feaster (26 days ago)
Spyro shadow legacy has a different feel than All other Og spyro games( even spyro 4 and 5). This game was dark and some music was scary.

My 3 favorite games were riptos rage, enter the dragonfly, and a heros tale and i want a reboot because i want a way better version of enter the dragonfly (plus fixed controls and bugs so everyone can beat it and enjoy it) and a heros tale because those are the 2 main games in the whole entire trilogy that will hold a special place in my heart
