Product description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Spyro is a cute purple dragon in a bit of a pickle. Each of Spyro's dragon friends has fallen victim to the nefarious Gnasty Gnorc, who has turned them into crystals. Accompanied by Sparx the dragonfly, Spyro sets out to free his buddies, while collecting gems and dragon eggs. Sparx also serves as Spyro's health-o-meter, glowing gold when Spyro is healthy and turning dusky green as he tires. To boost his energy, Spryo can blast docile creatures with fire, turning them into butterflies, which Sparx transforms into much-needed fuel.

This title has bright graphics in six well-developed worlds, each with several subworlds, including bogs, deserts and ice worlds. Unlike some action games, in Spyro the Dragon the enemies are more fun than frightening. In the Peace Keepers world, for example, Spyro must burn down the monster soldiers' tent, sending one of the minions running out, quaking with fear or, if you're lucky, dropping his drawers and shooting a moon.

Spyro's movements (fire breathing, gliding, jumping and climbing) require entry-level gaming skills. For this reason, Spyro the Dragon is an excellent title for youngsters or less experienced players, who want to play without having to master complex movement combinations. --Kasty Thomas

Pros:

  • Large worlds provide hours of game playing
  • Variety of scenarios
  • Engaging graphics
Cons:
  • Low game skill requirements may prove less challenging for expert players

I'm a 12 year old from west sussex, but even though the minimum age for this game is 3 years old, I think it's the best game ever, even my 45 year old dad loves it and my mum coulden't wait to see another dragon freed. The graphics are great, the sound is great and Spyro himself is such a sweet dragon. I can't wait to resieve Spyro 2 which I recently bought from Amazon. I would recommended it to anybody, any age, on earth and my best mate can't wait to have a go at spyro 2!!!

this game is amazing i have Spyro The Dragon and Spyro 2 and i love them both. I love playing on it. It is worth the money (well i think it is) it is a bit of a strategy game and it also has a bit of action in it.
there is loads of levels and great other characters.
The main plot of this game is to free all the the dragons and complete all the levels.
It isnt a short game it does last awhile and you can play loads of times and it never ever gets boring

Not the most challenging of games but Spyro The Dragon is fun to play.The levels are bursting with puzzles, activities and, of course, enemies. The main aim of the game is to free dragons that have been captured in stone by Gnasty Gnorc (the big boss). Enemies are fun to play with and bosses are fairly easy to defeat. If you found this review inspiring (probably not) and decide to buy Spyro and find it fun then try playing these games : Spyro The Dragon 2, Spyro: Year Of The Dragon, Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2 etc.

In his first ever adventure, Spyro has to rescue the dragons and foil Gnasty Gnorc's plan of turning all of the dragons in the five worlds into crystal.
I thought this game was very strategic and mind-bending, with plenty of humour. The game included individual voices graphics with cartoony effect and I think this game is worth 4 stars!!

Got it for my brother as we had the game as children, and when I moved house I lost it!
Quick delivery. Case is chipped in a couple of places but other than that, it's in good condition... But the disc is the thing I'm most impressed with. For a 1999 game, the disc I got is immaculate! Very very pleased with the quality of it and my brother will appreciate it greatly!

I got my playtation 3 years ago. This was the 2nd game I got 4 it. I still love it. This game is incredible. With 36 levels of this dragon whipping some serious B-hind, 6 excellent bosses and the cutest characters ever (the sheep on stilts is a favourite), ... Top quality game, buy it immediatly.

This was the first game i played on the playstation 1 and loved every minute of it and the original Spyro's are way better then the newer versions on sale today....mainly because i find the newer versions too easy and sometimes boring.

I recently dusted off my playstation and started playing this game again, although i find it much easier to play now (my dad no longer having to help me to glide) i still love it and thats the beauty of this game its never boring.

This is game for all the family, it's fun, easy for younger players and good fun for more experienced gamers.

This is a game that redefines interest in the platformer genre. Spyro must free his dragon buddies who were crystallized by Gnasty Gnorc. He takes his best buddy Sparx, a dragonfly, to rescue the dragons and defeat Gnasty Gnorc.
The graphics and sound are AMAZING. Defining visuals, coupled with relaxing music and sound.
This has been ignored by some because of the "kiddy" image. If you fear that, know that you can burn stuff!
Get this game wherever possible!
