Sypro is back for his third PlayStation adventure. Jump down the rabbit hole to recover all the eggs stolen from Dragon World by the evil sorceress and her henchmen "Rhynocs". The cartoonish look, the goofy sounds and the scavenger-hunt gameplay will be familiar to anyone who has adventured with Spyro before. New to the series is the ability to play as Sheila the kangaroo, Sergeant Byrd the flying penguin, Bentley the Yeti, and Agent 9 the space monkey. In Year of the Dragon, Spyro still has all of his signature moves--as well as the special moves he learned in Spyro the Dragon 2--and can control such vehicles as tanks, submarines and speedboats. There are over 30 levels in which to recover 150 eggs. Also, there are several mini-games to complement the standard gameplay, including boxing and skateboarding.
Following on from the hugely popular PlayStation Series Spyro is back in Spyro-The Year of the Dragon and this time he is cuter than ever.
The story starts with the same old adage of an evil leader taking hostages and then you as the only one who can save them and the world from this tyranny.
All sounds familiar so far, well you are wrong, because once you get past the cut scenes of all your family's eggs being stolen and you being the only one that can get them back, you are presented with a wonderful array of colours, scenery and graphics that play with your senses.
I know that seems to be going over the top a little, but imagine graphics that are slightly better than Rayman 2, yet with a little dragon with very hot breath and you'll get the picture.
With the exception of the Rayman series, normally when a game is this graphically luscious, the levels and actual gameplay suffers, but not here. Spyro is a full 37 levels packed with everything from running to skateboarding, with a learning curve that will suit old fans and newcomers alike.
With other characters available as well, the story isn't just about Spyro and his flames, as you chase around after the eggs and every gem you can lay your hands on to access the secret levels and add bonuses.
This title has appeal to all ages really, whether it's the younger gamer for the colours and the non-violent gameplay or the older player who is looking for a new challenge, you will find it all here. --Stuart Miles --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product description

With full power ups and new characters id say its even better than the first two!!! Plus what with new levels sparx even gets to prove himself. The graphics are astounding and as ever the gameply is excellent.
The Year of the Dragon is upon the dragon world which has been blessed with a whole bunch of dragon eggs that are ready to hatch. Who knows? Some of them might get their own video games some day. But a group of horned enemies, the rhynocs, steal the eggs and take them to a place called "The Forgotten Worlds", which is ruled by an evil Sorceress and her apprentice, Bianca. Spyro must travel to the levels in the forgotten worlds and get the eggs back, all the while learning more about the worlds that have been forgotten. Well actually they're more like "remembered worlds" once you start playing the game but...well, you get the idea.
Anyone who played Spyro 2 back in the day -and still does now- will be familiar with the feel of Spyro 3: level portals in home worlds; help citizens in those levels; charge and flame enemies; pick up treasure and collect rewards. But instead of orbs and talismans like in the last game, you're instead given dragon eggs. For some strange reason some of the dragons are born wearing baseball caps and glasses. Then again this is meant to be a complete work of fiction, so I guess there's no reason to complain.Read more ›
This game has large, colourful levels to explore and mini-games from blasting tanks to rescuing wolf cubs. Master tricks in the skatepark and skills in the submarine. This game is packed with activities that can be played over again for hours on end.
The glitches make the game even more facinating. Turn Spyro different colours, swim in mid air, and even skate on a squidboard.
Play as Sparx the dragonfly, Sheila the kangaroo, Sargent Byrd the penguin, Bentley the yeti and Agent 9 the space-monkey as well as the purple dragon himself in his third adventure.
Buy it! There's far too much to do to rent it!
The game revolves around a sorceress who steals the dragon eggs from the dragon realms.Working with her is her trainee sorceress Bianca.Spyro is yet again off to save the day
The gameplay style is a bit different as you can not only play as Spyro you can also play as:
Sheila the kangaroo
Bentley the yeti
Agent 9 the monkey
Spyro's controls are basically the same however he can ride in many vehicles from Tanks to sheep UFO's
This game is indeed a joy to play and definately worth buying
