Re: You wont believe me but.

I think it was fun. I think some people don't like it because of all the glitches.

I love the game too. Really dreamy levels. Tries to keep a similar style to Spyro 1. The glitches is the most obvious reason people don't like it, but I wouldn't say it's the worst Spyro game. That'd be Orange/Fusion sad

Re: You wont believe me but.

This game has stolen some levels from YotD and GG/RR if you didn't know.
Honey March and the country side levels are both taken from two of the YotD speed ways.


But I like the game even so, the graphics are highly strengthened

Re: You wont believe me but.

Well, at least I can get far in ETD whereas on YOTD... well, let's jus say the amount of times I've mentioned this'll make me infamous (or famous tongue) for getting stuck on the first boss sad

Re: You wont believe me but.

you can make those in the Spyro Lair web page. Just jump up to the "general chat" and there will be a forum about it.

This is my dragon:

I like the glitches actually XD like the "pause" glitch in the alien farm level where you can get the enemy to stand still by simply pressing the pause button, and then unpause. Spyro can move freely, but the enemies is still paused. I love that glitch

Re: You wont believe me but.

They could do like in Spyro 1. An entire realm for a special kind of levels. Not like in Spyro 3 where you had magical levels, ice levels and chinese levels in one.
They could for example have these levels on the same realm:

#1: ancient civilization theme
Molten Crater
Sunny Villa
Desert Ruins
Haunted Tomb

#2: Water and ice theme
Seashell shore
Icy Peak
Lost fleet
Frozen Altars

#3: Magic themed
Cloud Spires
Charmed Ridge
Crystal Islands
Enchanted Towers

#4: Eastern/Western
Dino Mines
Spooky Swamps
Bamboo terrace
Fireworks factory

But off course, if you didn't notice in Spyro 3. The levels went by inhabits and simplicity. For example the small cute creatures helped you with the balloon in the first realm. The more crafty innocent people was in the second. The strangest lot was in the third. And the most sofisticated and normal was in the fourth realm.

But EtDF was made quite randomly, so it was actually a good first connection with spyro and the PS2. AHT wouldn't be the same if EtDF hadn't comed up with the new breath types and blocking ability big_smile

Re: You wont believe me but.

Ah. Cloud Spires is from Spyro 3, isn't it? I think I remember that level being a bit like Cloud 9...

Re: You wont believe me but.

sort of, similar. They're both based on weather and the prime colour is white.

Re: You wont believe me but.

Yeah. I don't think it should be the most-hated game though. That should definately be Spyro Orange/Fusion!

Re: You wont believe me but.

I actually prefer AHT to ETD but ETD has the best Spyro design so far. I hope someone tries picking up the good elements of ETD soon and pass it on to a new game smile

Re: You wont believe me but.

Really? It's based on 1-3 and it's basically a Hi-Res version. AHT's is a bit abstract imo...

Re: You wont believe me but.

This game got a very bad rap. If you play the GameCube collector's edition all the glitches that people complain about are gone, so you can play the game for what it is. Is it short? Yes. However it followed the old Spyro style wonderfully. Puns, wit, irony, quirky characters and a unique variety of levels. Plus challenging puzzles and obstacles. It may have felt more like an extension of YotD than a whole new game but being as I like the old Spyro games more, I'd take an EtD 2 (longer, no glitches, of course!) to the next TLoS game. Most people are horrified to hear that but they only look at EtD for its shortness and glitchiness. Play the GC disc on a Wii and then judge it. With no glitches there, you can see that it's actually a decent game that was the closest to the original Spyro games of any games that followed it. Not that that's important to me but so many people harp on "pure, classic, Insomniac style Spyro" well...EtD was the closest to that out of any of the non-Insomniac games.

EtD was a good game and didn't deserve the raping it got from critics and fans. It was inexcusably short and the lack of other playable characters was also inexcusable but for what it was it was better than what people credit it for.

Re: You wont believe me but.

I never heard a Collector's Edition was on GameCube. Must be another US-only thing. D*mn Americans get everything sad
