4.0 out of 5 stars Spyros Back!, 24 Jan. 2002
This review is from: Spyro: Season of Ice (GBA) (Video Game)
I immediatly picked up Spyro when it came out. Id played the PS versions before it, and that was enough reason to buy it. I still remember my first thought about the game - 'Damn this is an annoying perspective!'. And its true. The sorta-3d perspective is really annoying at first, but you get used to it after about 10 minutes.
Anyways, the graphics on this game are beautiful. The semi-3d perspective has allowed for the game producers to add in some beautiful backgrounds, and the sprites are well animated and suit their places. Spyro looks perfect, everything about him has been replicated from the PS versions. His flame breath looks great, and when he charges there is absoloutly no slow down at all. The controls on the game seem tricky at first, and the perspective doesnt help, but theyre pretty easy to pick up and they offer good control over Spyro. The music on the game is very good as well, being a mixture of new tracks, along with remixed PS tracks.
The gameplay is sometimes a bit linear, with the main objective being 'collect a lotta things to get a fairy', but its generally quite fun, and there is also some mini games in there to keep the interest flowing. The replay value is huge, as the game isnt fully complete untill you collect every gem, and every fairy, and even once you have completed it, there is another mini game unlocked for your amusement.
I can only find a few faults with this game:
1) the perspective makes it really hard to land Spyro after a jump, as the only sort of idea you get on where your going to land is your shadow, which can be really frustrating at times.
2) The flying levels are really mundane. I was hoping for a 3d flying experience, ala Spyro 1, but all i got was a forward space-shooter type level.
Overall, a trully great game, up there with the likes of Mario and Sonic.
