Re: Best Spyro Game Ever?

NO!

It may be better that ANB and TEN but no way that it's the best Spyro game. It's light-years away from being the best Spyro game....

Nothing will be better the original trilogy.....unless Insomniac gets back and makes another game.....

Re: Best Spyro Game Ever?

I'd say it's the best Spyro game in Spyro's tenth anniversary. It has what the original trilogy didn't have and I love the characters and the incredible epic storyline.

yes.jpg

It has the BEST gameplay from ANY of the Spyro games, it was 20x better than ANB and TEN combined.

The first 3 games are still very good, the 4th and 5th? They were horrible. ANB was fairly good. TEN was nothing new from ANB.

DotD was great, not only for it's perfect conclusion, but for the flying anywhere, and 2 player co-op. It also made good use of Cynder.

DotD = 10/10
Spyro = 9.2/10
Ripto's Rage = 8.9/10
YotD = 7.2/10
ANB = 8.1/10
TEN = 5.8/10
AHT = 6.2/10
ETD = -40/10

That's how I would rate these.

Sorry to classic Spyro lovers, but I just think the older games repeated itself with the same concept. Go through a portal, collect gems, finish that area's mission, find a thief with an egg... It got old after a while, but the first on is still the best.

Oh yeah not repetitive at all.....

Re: Best Spyro Game Ever?

Oh great another topic where we can all argue about which series is better....gah....what a headache. Made by Ratchet so he can bash anyone who thinks otherwise...lol..jk. Anyways I'll just say my piece and leave you too it.

Is it the best of the LOS series...most certainly......but overall.......the very first Spyro games has it beat. We will never really see a game that can be as good as that....and it's only gonna get harder as the years go on.

Kudos to whoever is the one to pull it off eventually.

I can never tell if he is laughing maniacally or expressing complete horror in this picture. I guess both would work in this case.

I am also ashamed that I never saw whatever Looney Tunes episode this was in.

Re: Best Spyro Game Ever?

I don't know If I would go with such high ratings for all three LoS games...as enjoyable as they were...I think I liked ANB better then TEN...gameplay wise anyways....but yeah DotD still tops them both....though I don't think it as best as the original.

Just my oppionion though...I love em all...

Yeah it doesn't even come close to breaking the popularity of the original Spyro...and honestly I don't think it's gonna happen unless some developer makes it the face of their franchise and really puts pride into the work.

Re: Best Spyro Game Ever?

Yes. This is the best Spyro game so far.
No, the first insomniac games are not better. You might only think this way if you don't care what kind of thing you play with, purple dragon or a green alien hedgehog, or a living haloween pumpkin, whatever as long as you have your jumpin'. And in what kind of a world as well. No other spyro games could come even close to the deep and epic feeling of DotD, had a whole world around, not to mention nextgen graphics. You might like the look of infant insomniac Spyro more, but he can't stay infant for all those years, he can't fit an epic story as infant, no, not really.

This game was needed. We have enough of those child games already. And the majority of Spyro fan base has grown up with him. I would be disappointed if they would make a game like old spyro.. As much as i love going back to reminisce about my own childhood, i would enjoy a bit more grown game now, and i did.

Re: Best Spyro Game Ever?

As much as I appreciate your enthusiam about the new game..you're asking for a nice long discussion from a few of the fans on here lol....just giving you fair warning.

I don't think the game comes anywhere to nearing the popularity level of the originals...and it will be very hard for anyone to develop something as good as it.

I am a fan of the reboot and the games...but they still don't restore Spyro to his former glory...even though it didn't hurt it. A real developer who cares needs to get a hold on this franchise and put real pride into their work.

Anyways that's just what I think.

Re: Best Spyro Game Ever?

not to mention nextgen graphics

Oh yeah those were sooo good that they looked on a 360 like a PS2 game....

You want to see real next gen graphic? Sonic Unleashed, Ratchet&Clank Tools of Destruction, Metal Gear Solid 4....
Thats next gen graphics...

he can't fit an epic story as infant, no, not really

1. He wasn't an infant, he was more like a teenager..
Do infants ride skateboards? I haven't seen one....

2. Kirby anyone? Kirby is a cute little pink ball and he destroyed a giant battle ship, saved the whole planet from the invasion of dark matter and in the anime saved the universe from an evil empire....
That's pretty epic for me considering that he's a pink ball...

We have enough of those child games already.

I dunno....I see people here around 20 or so playing Super Mario Galaxy, playing Kirby Super Star Ultra, playing Sonic Rush and Sonic adventure, playing MegaMan 9, Klonoa Door to Phantomile, MOTHER 3 ....and LOVING THEM! So adults can enjoy and LOVE kids games.....

PLUS games are MEANT for KIDS. For KIDS that haven't played the original Spyro games and for KIDS that are new to the series! And you shouldn't try to make a KIDS game more ADULT....
And when you make a new game/series you should try to respect what the other games have done before it not just say F**K IT we're doing it from scratch, because that show disrespect for hte older fans whole like the games and for the creator of the the same...

Let's put it this way. The new Transformers cartoon, Transformers Animated, is now really popular both between the new kids AND old school G1 fans.....
Why? Because they actually tried and worked hard on it...
They tried to make characters as much as G1 as possible but yet add some new stuff, try new things and overall make a series that both fans can like.....
I seriously don't see why something similar couldn't be done with Spyro....


You HAVE adult games go play them if you don't want a kids game...

Plus dude you're controlling a little purple dragon....you can't SERIOUSLY look at me in the eyes and say that it wasn't meant to be a kids game.....

Re: Best Spyro Game Ever?

Haha, XRedDragonX, im starting to like you.

Yes, i agree, it is very unlikely that any other spyro game will break the popularity of the originals. But still, i am looking forward for that.
