Re: GENERAL OPINION

(We should get this thread stickied or something)

I would give it a 4/10. The story was stupid and there were way too many glitches. The graphics and camera could have been a lot better, even though I thought they were amazing when I first got it because I only had a PSX before. THE WORST THING WAS THAT RIPTO WAS BACK AGIAN!!!

The only good things about it were the minigames (some of them were kind of fun) and the way that they at least tried to stick with the original Spyro themes. They even got Stewart Copeland to do the music again and they had most of the same character voices.

Overall... bad game. It ruined Spyro's reputation. T_T

Pretty much the same reasons as BlueFlame. The Gliches were TERRIBLE! That ruined the whole game for me. I also think it ruined Spyro's reputation. I had a friend on neo who said they didn't like Spyro because the only game they played was this one. [-X

Re: GENERAL OPINION

The glitch that got me was the entire LEVEL disappearing in Thieves' Den. The background stayed, but the whole level turned invisible. I tried to finish it (I was getting close to the end) but it was impossible.

What I hated most was the slowness. Wasn't really worth sitting and playing it when they gameplay was like that.

I wouldn't give it more than 3/10.

Re: GENERAL OPINION

This game was the worst in the console series because vivendi really didn't pay a single bit of attention to it. They pretty much took the old games, degraded them with horrible glitches and strange characters, and added new breaths (which are kind of dumb. why would a dragon truly want to blow bubbles?) Ripto popped out of purgatory without even mentioning that he had died before. The characters had odd animations in game, and the gameplay would have been good if it had added something different from the first three games. As for the glitches, audio was the worst on mine. I could have arranged better audio using my home computer. Even the good voice actors sounded like they were bored to tears and just reading their lines off of a script. Danged sheep, waterfalls, all of them, the noises would just follow me around until I fell off a cliff. And spyro, if i bumped into a wall, he'd sometimes say "ouch!" over, and over, and over, and over, and over again! the scenery would disappear, i'd go through it, i'd get stuck in loads, and so on and forth. I would continue my rant, but it's way too long already. The point is, this game was mediocre.

That is not a glitch. Those are just the slow ninjas you already passed up. You lapped them. Believe it or not, it is possible to win that race. I have done it.

Re: GENERAL OPINION

I hate the glitches in this game. I run into at least 5 glitches every time I play. Once I was walking in some water and I fell into space and died. O.o Other times Spyro won't even move anymore.

I like the game except for the glitches, so I give it a 5/10.

Re: GENERAL OPINION

Does anyone know if the different versions of the game (PS2 or GameCube) have the same glitches? I remember someone on Neo telling me that the GameCube version was the least glitchy, but wouldn't they all be the same?

Once when I was in Cloud 9 (that level with the bears) I was trying to catch a dragonfly so I glided over to it. I didn't make the glide, but I could still reach the dragonfly. I fell of the edge while Spyro was still saying the name of the dragonfly ("Hey, it's ______!!). When it brought me back up after I lost a life, the camera wouldn't move off of the top of Zoe's head, no matter what buttons I pressed. I had to reset the GameCube because I couldn't move either.

Re: GENERAL OPINION

I remember you telling me about that one. I thik if they had taken more time on the gameplay and less on the graphics, (they are pretty good for an old GC game) they could have made at least a half decent game out of it. I didn't like how Moneybags only showed up once.  They need to be more consistant with the charcters. Same as in AHT. Ember and Flame show up only once.

Re: GENERAL OPINION

I give this game 5/10. I give it a 5 because I was lucky in that I only came across 1 or 2 glitches, but would'nt rate it anymore because of the really awful loading times, gee, seemed to take forever. Not much fun.

Re: GENERAL OPINION

I'd give this game 4.5/10.  The music and graphics were great, as with other Spyro games, but the plot  was just terrible.  There were many glitches and the loading time took FOREVER, there was just one homeworld, Crush and Gulp can talk(and they're DEAD!)and Ripto's back!  WHY???? He's DEAD, he got hit with a super fireball and fell into a pool of lava!  How dead can you get?  He was also a lot funnier in Ripto's Rage.  They should have invented a new villain.  And they should have at least had Crush and Gulp as bosses.

Re: GENERAL OPINION

i think i will give this one a 3/10 because the glitches were annoying and the game was way to boring for a spyro fan that game was not good enough for my taste (in my opinion)

Re: GENERAL OPINION

I would give it a 4/10. medicore plot...long and annoying load times.. and not much point to collecting gems. You pay Moneybags 200 gems after that, you don'r spend any of them. It would have made more sense for them to put in things that you could spend Gems on..

Re: GENERAL OPINION

The glitches in ETD where freaking me out too! O.o
Also.. it's UNTRUE the gamecube version has lesser glitches.

Sometimes when a level has loaded... it is STILL loading while
playing. Spyro just had no animation at the beginning
And you could just move him around like a lifeless puppet.
After a few seconds the animation returned to him.

Also when I was at brother Dough's slide
the timer didn't even start. Talk about buggy! X.x

Also... about the voice-acting.
I had the dutch version and the characters where done
in THE MOST childish way you could ever imagine.
I think the voices in sesame street sounded even more serious
than what they did in ETD. ¬_¬
Spyro sounded like he had to go to the bathroom everytime
I heard him talk! X.x

Also... I couldn't even hear the English voices because I couldn't
change the language settings! O.o
And whenever I turned the Voices to "OFF"
The next time I started the game they where back "ON" again. sad

However The good things:
1. the music.
2. the graphics.
3. Original Spyro! X3
4. Original Characters.

Gamespot even said that "even the greatest fans of Spyro would
have a hard time enjoying this game!"
And it was true. O.o

My score: 4/10.
Vivendi could've done WAY better than this.


Spyro Nut! ;P
