I am proud to say that I have every Spyro game for both PS & Nintendo. I have had huge amounts of fun with them all, except the last 2 releases. The first few games were made by Insomniac - hence the title of this review - and they were fantastic! This offering is made by Krome. I just wish the Spyro franchise hadn't been sold on from the original company. This version is fight, fight & fight again, and as other reviewers have said - astoundingly difficult. There will be a final game released in this trilogy - I know this as I have looked at the last page of the 'walk through' book. I'm sure it will be exactly the same - more fighting. As others have said, I feel that Spyro has lost the plot and should go back to the original formula - less fighting, more collecting and mini-games please! I'm very disappointed with this offering and I wish that I had believed the other reviewers!
