Product Description

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.

Amazon.co.uk Review

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.

Absolutely disgusting. Would actually give no stars if I could. Item was described as used but good condition - the game won't even load! Paid a lot of money for this and I can't believe that this product has been sold in this condition. Furious.

With the release of a third Sypro adventure i thought that the time would come when i bored of the little purple dragon and his dragon fly pal. But not so after playing for what seemed like a full day i was once again hooked on the firey one!
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.

Ape Escape, Crash 1, 2 and 3, Spyro 1, and 2. They're just some of Sonys efforts in making the ultimate platform game to beat Nintendo's somewhat tiresome Mario and Sega's Sonic seris. After several attempts of trying one game espiecially took my eye. Spyro: Year of the Dragon is the third in the seris, and it headbuts Sonics butt and toasts Mario's tash. It looks so good as well, you would think your PlayStation had turned into the highly anticipated PlayStation 2, what with its huge sight range and smooth edges, its enough to turn any competition into a pixallated mess. You can now control 4 new characters, around 4 worlds and over 30 levels. it's enouh to keep you occupied from now till your 80! So if your a game freak like me and looking for a game to get your sweaty palms on, then this is the game for you. Spyro 3 is a great game worth anyone buying. But just remember, its not just for kids.

Spyro once again has to save the world and after finally managing to go on his holiday in dragon shores he comes back to the dragon worlds and while him and his dragon friends are sleeping all of the dragon eggs that are soon to be hatched are stolen by evil rhynocs and the the apprentice of the evil sorcoress. They manage to get away just in time through a whole onto the other side of the world the forgotten worlds. And who is the only person small enough to fit throught the hole. Yep you guessed right Spyro. He is on another world saving adventure to take back the dragon eggs and on the way he can take on small tasks such as skateboarding or beating an evil marine in a submarine. This is another brilliant spyro adventure amnd is a must buy 10/10

Whenever I play Spyro 3 (or Spyro: Year Of The Dragon to give its full title) I can't help but feel a little bit sad. Is it because the game is lousy? No, far from it. It's a great game. It's just that not only was it the last Spyro game to appear on the PSone, it was also the last great Spyro game, period. Oh well, I guess all good things have to come to an end eventually. So sit down, grab a cup of tea and a plate of chocolate biscuits, and enjoy a games review so good it makes the staff at the Official PlayStation Magazine green with envy.

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.

This game is by far the best Spyro game ever created.

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!

I absoloutely loved this game , in my personal opinion it is the best game in the Spyro series (Closely behind is Spyro 2)

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

Sgt.James Byrd

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
