Hardest Spryo Game? [out of the original Insomniac triology]

which Spyro game did you find the most tricky?

for me, it was definitely Gateway to Glimmer ._. the minigames are so frustrating compared to YotD... I've completed both Spyro 1 and Spyro 3 fully but I'm still struggling with Spyro 2, dammit!

Spyro The Dragon appears to be the hardest to me. I could normally go 100% on all stages the game threw at me, but after Magic Crafters World, it is too hard for me to get all the gems, let alone complete the stages.

That's a tough one. They're all kind of easy for me now since I've played them so many times and pretty much memorized how to do everything. tongue

Bar Haunted Towers and Tree Tops, which are easy when you know how to do them, I'd say YotD was the hardest. Some of those challenge portals were pretty evil.

Spyro the Dragon. The only Spyro game (EtD aside cuz that was so boring) where I haven't completed everything. It took me ages to realise that you got to the faraway island in Tree Tops by following the green theif, *bleep*...

Spyro the Dragon, but it was only one thing that I can't do on that one and that is the last dragon on Enchanted Towers or whatever it is as well as the treasure surrounding it (the one where he knights come to life and you get kissed by fairies). I can't get the one you can hear above the supercharges... I've been told how but I still can't do it.
However, my vote goes to Gateway to Glimmer, because the challenges on that were hard... I hated the one where you had to save the cavemen from big dinosaurs... That level took me AGES.

Haunted Towers. I can't do that level either. }:<

The challenges in Gateway to Glimmer were hard, yes. 'TROUBLE WITH THE TROLLEY EH?!' *shot*

really? I found Spyro the Dragon the most simple because there were no annoying mini games XD just raw collecting

I'd say YotD was the hardest. Some of those challenge portals were pretty evil.

especially that last tank mission in Haunted Tomb... I swear winning that was based entirely on your luck D: still stand by Spyro 2 being more difficult though, they've got harder challenges

It took me ages to realise that you got to the faraway island in Tree Tops by following the green theif, *bleep*...

ditto... man, I would stare at that island in complete confusion many a time XD

However, my vote goes to Gateway to Glimmer, because the challenges on that were hard... I hated the one where you had to save the cavemen from big dinosaurs... That level took me AGES.

that WAS hard... I'm still struggling with that second ice challenge in Colossus... I find it hard to leave a world incomplete D:

'TROUBLE WITH THE TROLLEY EH?!' *shot*

arghhh o_. when I first got Spyro, I spent SO long on that challenge, hearing that stupid bird repeat that again and again... and then I make a stupid mistake this playthrough and all the horrible memories return XD I remember saying 'I've got no trouble with the trolley, bird!' when I was playing through as a young kid >.>

To just complete: YotD
All Spyro games have an equal difficulty to complete, but I guess YotD was the most difficult (with the bosses).

To fully complete (ignoring skill points): Spyro the Dragon.
StD is the best Spyro game ever, and I think some of you agree with that. Gems were still hidden and secret rooms to complete the game 100% (or whatever was the maximum... maybe 120) were still difficult to find. It took me HOURS to find the Haunted Towers treasure room and the same goes for Tree Tops. I often missed keys and the Flights were the most challenging of them all (especially to get a good time. I'm working on it!)

Depends what you mean by hardest. Longest to complete 100%, longest to complete normally? Most game overs.
Spyro 2 had hard minigames though

That one, Agent Zero, and Hunter's challenge in the last Speedway were the ones I had the most trouble with in Spyro 2. The voices got so annoying and only added to the frustration of not being able to do it. "This time I'd better not catch you --" "Trouble with the trolley, eh?" "Hey, you missed a target!" Oh yeah, and I can't forget the Super Bonus World snowboarding challenge. "I think my toungue is frozen; you'd better not lose again!" >__>

I thought the first one had some pretty tricky hidden gems!

Re: Hardest Spryo Game? [out of the original Insomniac triology]

I'm shocked that people find Spyro 1 so hard. It was easy as heck for me, even those 'infamous' sections.

Now, don't talk to me about Agent Zero...*shudder*

Re: Hardest Spryo Game? [out of the original Insomniac triology]

I surprised at the current result with StD getting most votes.

I will admit that I was (still am) a huge Spyro geek.  I bought the Strategy Guide long before I even bought the game just so I could tie myself down of excitement BEFORE I EVEN BOUGHT THE GAME.

Honestly, though, I only looked at it a couple times during the first complete playthrough for levels like tree tops and terrace village.

I have beaten the game 20-something times and can find everything in the game within 4 hours.  And I'm not even speed running.  What is the speed run record BTW?...

I voted YotD mainly because you can't easily find anything until Sparx can point into the direction of the missing gems, something her can do from the start of RR.

Re: Hardest Spryo Game? [out of the original Insomniac triology]

Frankly, IMHO, Spyro 2 was easy. I was missing eggs in Spyro 3... :<


We all agree, the Insomniac Spyro games were the best; there is absolutely denying it.

Status:
1. Spyro the Dragon 100%
2.Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage 100% + 15% in another run
3. Spyro 3: YOTD PSN Version! 117% Complete WITH Skill Points. 3 days!

Re: Hardest Spryo Game? [out of the original Insomniac triology]

I have to say completing (at least trying to complete) Ripto's Rage (2) 100% was hard because there is so much to do for example there is at least 500 gems in the first couple levels!
in my mind  it was spyro 2 then 1 then 3

Re: Hardest Spryo Game? [out of the original Insomniac triology]

for me it's 1: it's the only one that ends up having harmful enemies in homeworlds. unless i don't remember some of spyro 3's homeworlds. but still, i still have nightmares of the level where tha fairy kisses you and you can only kill the armor with the super breath. i could never keep it long enough and the armor would kill me.

Spyro 2 has very hard bosses and difficult levels.  Spyro 3 over all was pretty easy (but not as easy as in Spyro 5, which isn't included in this poll.)

Spyro The Dragon. I'm always missing that one gem and have to stay in that level for an hour looking for it.

Re: Hardest Spryo Game? [out of the original Insomniac triology]

I voted The Original Spyro the Dragon. It's the only one I haven't even got to the final boss yet. I get to Dream Weavers and by then, I am bored out of my mind and it becomes extremely hard (Actually.... It gets hard for me by Beast-Makers) I haven't even tried Treetops I don't think... And from what everyone else has posted in the past, I don't want to :S The Whole game in General got freaky for me eventually and I for some reason just can't play it as much as I play the others. And after playing the following Games... I have one question Left....

QUSTION: WHERE THE HELL WAS THE HOVER OPTION!!! XD

Spyro 2 & 3 were quite easy for me. I liked the implementations of the mini-games in to Spyro 2. I like Summer Forest & Autumn Plains and then Winter Tundra.... I hate. Spyro 3 got really tedious for me by Evening Lake. I know I didn't like it when I just went through the levels to get to the boss and not to collect gems etc.

But still. The Original was the Hardest.

Re: Hardest Spryo Game? [out of the original Insomniac triology]

Wow, I'm in the minority.

Spyro 1 to me was easy.  Few items, few objectives, few strategies, little challenge.

There were like only 4 different enemies in the game.
-ones that you flame or charge
-ones that you can only flame
-ones that you can only charge
-and the few you have to flame twice

And this pattern continues in the other games, but in Spyro 2 and YotD, there's usually a bit more strategy or puzzle involved.  Spyro 1 was point-and-shoot.

Casually, I can play the game through and not die until Alpine Ridge.

That happens to me if I play Spyro 1 after playing 2 and 3.  Spyro 1 controls differently and can seem "unfavorable" compared to Spyro's maneuverability in 2 and 3, not to mention Spyro 2's super-jump.

You really just have to get used to the controls.  It usually takes me about 15 minutes to get used to it.

Spyro 2; Ripto's Rage took the longest for me to finish. The boss battles actually required effort, and some of the mini games were ridiculously hard.
