DO you recommend this game?

Besides the glitches I hear about do you recommend it?
I watched the intro on Youtube and it doesn't seem like a bad plot-but I want to hear from the people who've played it and know the plot better.

Re: DO you recommend this game?

No, no, no and no, a thousand times no. Maybe because I'd been hyped up for it six months before release, but it was AWFUL. The loading times were atrocious, the graphics were fuzzy and weird, 'my cup runneth over' with glitches everywhere, the controls were too loose and imprecise, the story was mediocre at best (dragonflies all gone, go fetch them! Year of the Dragon anyone?) and the end boss fight was ridiculous.
No grand plot could redeem this monster. It's just a really, really bad game. @[email protected]

Although some people did enjoy EtD - which is fine, everyone has their own opinion. But I tried to like this game, honest to goodness I did. And I just... couldn't. XD
Rent it first if anything.

Re: DO you recommend this game?

rent ut first, but it is pretty fun if you get hookeed. It is the closest thing we got to the originals.
I recon its better than bot ANB & TEN

Re: DO you recommend this game?

i wouldnt say that this is a bad game exactly but it just has a few bad things about it. If you can put up with the framerate, the glitches, the loading times and the end boss fight its a good enough game. But if i were you i would rent it first.

Re: DO you recommend this game?

i like this game all the levels have good designs and he music is good but the glitches and the long loading screens just make the game a living hell. there is not much plot line throughout the game so i would recommend the game if they fixed the glitches added more levels so the game is not so short. i would give it a 6/10.

Re: DO you recommend this game?

Here's some Pros and Cons about the game:

Spoilers ahead...


Pros:
Gameplay is close to that of the original 3
Graphics are pretty good
Lots of mini-games


Cons:
Bad Loading Time
Bad Framerate
Lots of Glitches
Story similiar to  YOTD
Boss fights not good
Only one homeworld

I'd definitely advise renting first, its not the best but its still better than the LOS series.

If you liked the original Spyros, then you'll probably like this one too if you can tolerate all the load times, framerates, and glitches.

I really didn't like it. I could see their effort to make it like the previous three, but they failed epicly.

Re: DO you recommend this game?

Never buy this game inless you're a major Spyro fan.

Infact heres a line in the game "Now that the Dragon flies are gone, the Dragons are nothing and soon the Dragon home lands will be mine" then after that he walks away to escape.

Now is that stupid or what?

Re: DO you recommend this game?

I hate this stupid game! What a waste of money. =____=
Yeah when I saw the picture on a Crash booklet..yeah I was like "I wanna play this game!" but now that I've played it...*stabs it*

Now I only play it to screw it up like trying to find different glitches...<__<
I've gotten pretty far a couple times then have it deleted...*sigh* then get pretty far again...then deleted again. xD

Re: DO you recommend this game?

Its just that bad.

I remember the time when I was near the end of the game, and I was just about to beat the boss for the second time but then I just start falling and I don't die and it just stayed there, I had to turn it off. I fell through the level and then I went through water it was weird.

Re: DO you recommend this game?

No, I do not recommend it. You may be thinking "It can't be that bad" but I assure you that, yes, it can and it is. I have never played a game worse than this (though "Kya: Dark Lineage" comes mighty close).

If you really must know how bad it is, rent it or find a used copy that's less than $5.

My copy was free XD

And Kya was... mildly entertaining. My friend Claire and I used to play it whenever we wanted to kill some time

Re: DO you recommend this game?

I wasted $10 on Kya and I want that money back. I am furious that people lump that in the same category of awesome as "Beyond Good & Evil". There was nothing appealing at all about it. I finished EtD, at least, but Kya went to live at the used game store before I was even halfway through with it.

Im not going to buy ps2 only to play ETD... i already have AHT&ANB for xbox and TEN&DOTD for wii. However, if i had realized this earlier i would have bought ps2 and then all those games for it. Woulda been easier to play them.

Re: DO you recommend this game?

No, Spyro ETD is only for PS2 and Gamecube. It was supposed to be for Xbox and PC also. A PC release with the level editor would be an absolute dream. This game would have had a huge modding community.  sad


I'm a secret duck who lives in the glitchy but nice Honey Marshes. My day to day job is to spy on the blue guys so they won't get up to much mischief.

Re: DO you recommend this game?

I would reccommend it if you had to kill some time not bad and worth a good play it still quite good, but rent it don't buy it. You will looking back two months from the time you bought it and saying "I've just completed the game and I don't want to reapet the same aimless *bleep*" and I say yeah aimless but good! 8/10
