Product Description

Product Description

Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly is a sequel to Spyro: Year of the Dragon, a bestselling title for the second PlayStation console, in which Ripto returns with a plan to steal the Dragonflies of the Dragon Realms. To combat his foes, Spyro's existing set of abilities will be enhanced with features such as: electric, ice, and bubble-breath. Equipped with his newly acquired skills, amazing new vehicles, and help from new and old friends, Spyro must find a way to return the Dragonflies and restore order to the Dragon Realm.

Amazon.co.uk Review

The Spyro games on the PSone are remembered by many as some of the console's best 3-D platform games, and quite rightly so. In Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly, his first next-generation adventure, the world's smallest, friendliest, purple-est dragon is back to jump, glide and start brush fires, and the new game starts off well as you watch the dastardly Ripto accidentally disperse the magic dragonflies across the gameworld and force you, as Spyro, to bring them all back to safety.

One of the best things about Enter the Dragonfly is the huge number of moves at Spyro's disposal. As you'd expect of any dragon he can jump, fly, hover, head-butt and breathe flames--but now he can also breathe ice and electricity as well as magic bubbles (very handy for catching dragonflies, and a clever nod to arcade classic Bubble Bobble). Unfortunately the main problem with the game is the graphics, which, although they look okay in the screenshots, are very jerky when you play the game. The level design isn't terribly imaginative either and the game as a whole is surprisingly short.

Since Enter the Dragonfly isn't made by the same team as the previous Spyro games--those guys went on to make the excellent Ratchet & Clank instead--it's perhaps no surprise that it isn't quite up to its predecessors. It's still a quality game though and certainly one to consider for fans of the series. --David Jenkins

3.0 out of 5 stars Spyro The Disappointment 9 Dec. 2002
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
I loved the Spyro games on PSOne so I looked forward to the little purple guy's appearance on PS2. The game, as always, looks great with imaginative and extensive levels to explore with the same 3D ease of sight and movement. The additional breaths - bubbles, electricity and ice - are a nice touch although trying to catch dragonflys in a bubble can sometimes be a chore. First impressions were quite favourable. BUT...as play progresses, I found myself longing for the Spyro of old. With the game 50% complete, I have yet to encounter an enemy who does little more than stand there waiting to be zapped. The various sub-games and challenges are largely re-hashes. Even so, Spyro does not always move quite as smoothly as he used to. The hover move is especially fiddly. Maybe it's just me, but it is frequently very difficult to complete a jump from one platform to another where hovering is required. This usually results in going round and round to get back to that point only to just miss the jump again. This sort of repetition creates a sense of frustration rather than challenge. I am now halfway through the game but feel little enthusiasm for doing the other half. Maybe the game was created for a different sort of player. But I get more enjoyment from re-playing the old PSOne Spyro games than I do from this new version.

4.0 out of 5 stars Could Be Better! 19 May 2003
Format:Video Game
I've been a Spyro fan since the first, so I eagerly awaited this PS2 one and forked out to buy it as soon as it was released. I can't help wishing I'd waited 'til it went down in price a bit!
As far as the graphics go, it's stunning! There's all sorts of brilliant effects like grass that moves as 'you' walk through it and weather effects like fog which make things a bit more interesting (even if it does reduce visibility too much at times). However, I think that in the effort to make it look good they've sacrificed too much in the game play.
The first thing you should know is that it's nearly impossible to play using the direction buttons. It's very slow to respond, the turning circle is almost non-existent and it's generally just a pain in the neck. It's obviously been designed with the joystick in mind and, once I figured that out, game play improved - a bit. Even using the joystick, it's far from perfect. It's very sensitive, turning far too much with just a tap. Your best bet is probably to switch between the stick and the buttons depending on what you're trying to do.
There's other niggles too. It's extremely difficult to make jumps that involve hovering. There is a trick to it (you've got to wait to hover until the very last moment, when it looks like you've practically bumped into the side of the object you're trying to land on) but even knowing that, it's not easy. Spyro will to come to a complete stop if you try to make too tight a turn, which can be very annoying and waste a lot of time. Also, the camera is very slow to follow (whatever you have it set to - there's not much difference), sometimes not bothering at all so you have to centre it yourself. This can be more than just annoying if you're surrounded by enemies!

3.0 out of 5 stars Spyro The Disappointment 17 Dec. 2002
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
I always enjoyed playing Spyro on Playstation One and was really looking forward to the new game on PS2. It looks great - same fantastic 3D graphics and extensive worlds to explore. It was only when playing the game that disappointment began to creep in. The game has not really changed a lot. The little purple fellow is still picking up gems from all over the place and looking for friends (in this case, dragonflies) to free from the baddies. He has a couple of new tricks - electric breath, ice breath, bubble breath - but otherwise the scenario has a strong sense of deja vu. There are occasional mini-games and challenges, some of which closely resemble those in previous games. But instead of genuine challenge in the gameplay, you are confronted with repetition and frustration. I have reached the halfway point of the game and have yet to encounter an enemy who does little more than stand there and wait to be zapped. Lives are more likely to be lost attempting to carry out the unnecessarily fiddly glide-and-hover move to go from one platform to another. For some reason (or maybe it's just me) this move seems to have been made much more difficult than before and requires incredibly exact timing. Otherwise, you have to keep trying it over and over and over and over again. Having completed half the game, I have very little enthusiasm for doing the other half. Which is a pity because Spyro was always my favourite game character. But in this incarnation, he has been seriously let down by his creators. If I want to play Spyro now, I'll go back to the old games. At least they were fun.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not your best, Spyro..... 29 Nov. 2006
Format:Video Game
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Before i start this review, i should remind people that this game was not made by the original creators of Spyro, Insomniac Games, so please don't be put off from the otherwise brilliant spyro.

This is the first PS2 spyro game that wasn't done by Insomniac, but even so, that is no excuse for such an unpolished game. Enter the dragonfly is full of glitches and bugs such as flickering backgrounds, gems that sometimes go invisible and times where the game freezes or spyro gets jammed in an unescapable corner or space. In addition, spyro moves in a very sluggish way and loading times can take up to a minute. Its a shame, because this game could have been brilliant if it wasn't for all these problems. There are some good bits, such as new breaths, and all the minigames are brilliant and very enjoyable, especially the ones on the luau island level, and crop circle country, plus the music and graphics are nice too, but overall, the quality of this game is poor. Play the original three on the playstation one, as these are master games, and all the other spyro games on the ps2 from hero's tail onwards, but if you want to give this one a miss, i really don't blame you. Sorry spyro.
