5.0 out of 5 stars A Sequel that has certainly lived up to it's predecessor and Nostalgia value, 3 Aug 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Spyro 2: Gateway to Glimmer Platinum (PS) (Video Game)
I have to say the idea of a sequel for this game was inevitable, solely because of how well the previous game has done. But how is it that a sequel, continuing the legacy of such a golden game, match up to it's predecessor or better yet be better than it? Well this game says it all. Now the concept for this is a bit better than it's original one (I'm referring to how adhered to the plot is in this one by the way, but still regarding Spyro is a brilliant game as it stands), regarding how much continuity it has also.
The levels are brilliant also, how Spyro has to collect tokens to keep in his guide book from each of the individual levels he enter, the orbs power certain levels that you're unable to access, doors unable to open and things like that. There's a lot going for this platformers as far as story and exploration goes - Nothing to depreciate here a tall.

Spyro is having break from the last game, getting him thinking about a holiday in Dragon Shores. The problem is the portal he entered is being tampered around by a professor whose intention is to calibrate a portal in work, so he can find a dragon to defeat Rypto and His Minions, Crush and Gulp. When Spyro's anticipated holiday didn't turn out so well he finds himself in Avalar, which has a division of 3 Worlds - A Summer one, An Autumn one and Winter Tundra.
When Spyro hears about Rypto's plans to take over the worlds that surround Avatar by the professor, Elora the faunn and Hunter The Cheetah, he is forced to go into all the levels and collect the talismans to find them.

Yeah, as you can see there's more story included in this game, but they still manage to keep the levels innovative and fresh. Spyro can use power-ups, swim and even hover.

I'll let you decide about the game, as I got it back when it was first released as a child - And till' this day I still love it!
