Re: Annoying/Stupid parts of the game for you

*Nods* nd am I the only one who thought that slowing SPYRO down at the same time as the monsters (if not by as much) as kind of counterproductive? Just like dragging out the agony >_>

Re: Annoying/Stupid parts of the game for you

Well, most of the things that were listed originally on this topic as annoyances I'd have to agree with.

But the thing, I think, I hate the most is the repetitiveness of the whole game.  I mean... sound effects are the same, and even whole entire concepts for bosses and enemies remained unchanged!

Re: Annoying/Stupid parts of the game for you

1. Arborick
2. The first and second fights in Skabb's Arena.
3. The Puzzle after the three fights. (Yet it's a surprise I can poke a hole in Sierra's logic in that puzzle. Also where I stopped playing and skipped the game to DotD.)

And that's where I stopped, gave up, and skipped to Dawn of the Dragon.

Re: Annoying/Stupid parts of the game for you

1. Easy.
2. Arborick was very easy unless you didnt know what you were doing.
3. Yeah, that jellyfish platforming area was pretty annoying.
4. If you played this with ps2 and you call it hard, then what you are gonna say if youd play it with wii? With ps2, you just press a button and it does the knock up strike. But with wii, you need to move your remote EXACTLY vertically downwards to perform it. If it does even a little forward, youll just normal attack. Still very easy when you learn it.
5. This was quite poor but i think they didnt make up anything better.
6. LOL this was super duper easy!!!

Seriously, the game isnt that hard as everyone says. I found it harder than ANB (which apparently sucked), but no, not too hard. Im going to my uncles house (i had to buy the game for wii because i got xbox and it havent been made for that console, so i get to play it around 2-3 times a month.) to finish the game when they arent home.

Re: Annoying/Stupid parts of the game for you

Not hard, just frustrating! like after a few tries i could beat the bosses and such. just the fact that i have to trial it so many times and the music and dull, boring graphics gave me a headache, made me feel like this game was harder than it was. I've only still played for a total for 2 hours, and i got this game nearly a year ago. That says how much i think this game sucks.

Re: Annoying/Stupid parts of the game for you

I like the game more than ANB because its more harder (you clearly cant survive with the same spam tactic than in ANB), and therefore more its rewarding. I believe im not in the "hard" parts of the game yet, we shall see...

Re: Annoying/Stupid parts of the game for you

The whole game was really bad for me. Don't kill me.

I mean, seriously, the entire game was just killing apes. There was nothing else to do.

Re: Annoying/Stupid parts of the game for you

the most annoying/stupid part for me was probably Arborick. my game has this nice little glitch in it, sometimes when i jump and press a directional button, it goes the wrong way.

Re: Annoying/Stupid parts of the game for you

I smashed them, but seeing as his most dangerous attack is a 1 hit kill (and thus the only thing he managed to hit me with...) I couldn't tell if there was a difference.

Re: Annoying/Stupid parts of the game for you

Another annoying part was Spyro's recovery time after enemies attacked and hit you....that really buged me...

Re: Annoying/Stupid parts of the game for you

Arborick is more than frustrating, he's downright annoying how he spins to extinguish the flames.

It was more annoying in the last stage, when it comes atop of you. This is where I truly apprecite the Dragon Time. When it was spinning, I was yelling, "Stop that!"

Re: Annoying/Stupid parts of the game for you

This game really ticked me off on my first try, because I hate games where you have to get through by trial-and-error and have to repeat parts over and over again after JUST having gotten done with them. 

I hated the jellyfish forest, especially grabbing the red mask, that part was harder than needed.  I fell exactly 45 times trying to get that **** thing, no joke.

The arena battles were also overly difficult.  Having Dark Spyro made them a bit easier, especially his hyper-melee, but without that...I almost threw the game out because I just could not kill Ravage Rider.  I absolutely hate battles where you have to rely almost entirely on luck favoring you dodging the outright spam of bombs and other attacks.  Even now I still can't beat him with any sort of strategy if I can't use Dark Spyro. Good for an OPTIONAL boss, maybe, but not for a mid-game fight, especially since you have to rely almost entirely on melee attacks for a good 80% of the fight.  IMO, a very poorly planned battle.  I'm not the "elitist" kind of player who can pull off SHUFFLs or w/e in SSBM; that kind of skill shouldn't be needed to kill a mid-game boss.

The pirate captain (I forget his name atm) was also painful to fight; it took me about five tries to get used to his first stage alone.  Like I've said, I hate having to die in order to figure out how the heck to get through, and this battle was no exception.  Death should not be used as a method of figuring out a boss's patterns; I'm grateful for the fact that the only bad effect of "dying" was simply restarting, but that should not have been relied upon to complete the game.

The Gaul fight really irked me as well; I had to play through it at least fifteen times because he kept knocking me over the edge just before I could kill him, thus making me have to redo the first fight ALL OVER AGAIN and wait for the cutscene to allow me to skip it.  Although, I now kinda like the Gaul fight because I know how to get around his attacks.  Ravage Rider though was just plain and simple overkill.

Re: Annoying/Stupid parts of the game for you

Argh.

It wasn't the battles, mostly; I could beat up most of the bosses in just a few minutes, once I figured them out...  After dying a whole lot, which seems to be the primary way to learn anything in the game.

It was just... Irritating.  You spend hours to get through stages, collecting quills and masks and other various junk, but if you forget one single one, guess what?  To redo the stage, you must redo the game!  Utter fun, considering the individual stages take hours of such interesting stunts as beating up a horde of low AI enemies.  I didn't like the storyline- it just seems... cheesy.  I didn't like most of the bosses, too.  I mean, really, consider it.  A tree monster.  Some bloated thing that's supposedly a pirate.  An incredibly easy replicate of Cynder.  And a giant monkey.  Whoo.

Playing that game bored me out of my skull.  Oh, and they also took out every semi-useful elemental skill and replaced it with junk.  I hate what happened to electricity and earth breath... Although, admittedly I usually only used electricity breath in A New Beginning.
