Opinions on the legends trilogy?
I liked the second and third one even though they were pretty mediocre.
The second one for it's difficulty and the third one for it's non-linearity.

I have not heard this before. It did sound really nice, and I've heard enough of Stewart Copeland to recognize his style right away but it is kind of disappointing that that track wasn't entirely original for Spyro.

Well, when you have to create 30+ musical tracks for one game I'm sure you'd have trouble coming up with original stuff. I don't mind anyways. Whether the tracks are original or not, I still find the Spyro OSTs to be phenomenal.

There apparently was supposed to be a 4th hub world so that all 4 seasons were included. I assume it was cut for time constraints. After all, each game was made in about a year, except for maybe the first one.
>>
So will games like Spyro 1-3 ever be made again?

Or do modern developers laugh at the idea of homeworlds filled with distinct, unique comfy levels that reward exploration? Are optional mini-games/objectives "too gamey" now?

Does everything have to be open world with sticky "Press X to climb" platforming these days?
>>
>>282470546
Dang, is it just me or do these levels seem a lot wider and bigger than 2 & 3's? Maybe my memory of them is failing.

They just came out with a new Sly Cooper last year didn't they? Other than that I can't think of anything recent. I miss when platformers were the dominant genre so many good games came out of that

It's the reason I lost hope as a Spyro fanboy when I was little. Season of Ice on the Gameboy wasn't the best, but I was still hopeful. I see the game in the store, get excited as fuck, get it as a gift, and lo and behold, it's fucking garbage.

Loading is awful, but it's not the only problem. It has several slow downs during gameplay, to the point where I get nauseous just thinking about it. The charge feels less satisfying than before, it just feels a lot slower and the sound isn't quite right. It is filled to the brim with glitches. All the models are very off putting, especially the farmer ones off the top of my memory. The various breaths aren't THAT great (bubble is only there to capture Dragonflies, Lightning is used for certain puzzles and otherwise acts the same as fire, and frost is frost). Several of the minigames just feel awful (like the minigame where you drive a tank). Voice acting is terrible. The last fight with Ripto is a joke. You can easily tell it was rushed out and not properly finished

Honestly I can't really think of anything that really stuck out that was "great," other than abusing glitches.
>>
>>282472107
>So will games like Spyro 1-3 ever be made again?

Nope. Even if they were, they'd be new age dumbed down shit. Hell, Spyro would probably fly now without any trouble because trying to time a jump and glide would be way to hard for kids these days.

The Jak games handled the transition to HD really well and they still look great on the PS2. I still kind of wish there was a team with enough resources to make full-blown remakes of the Jak games because it's my absolute favorite platform series and I don't expect anything interesting out of Naughty Dog anymore.
>>
>>282472405
Sly 4 had plenty of flaws but damn it still felt nice to finally get another platformer with hubworlds and open environments and actual secrets to find.

I'm getting a little tired of all the 3D platformers just being Mario and Sonic.

>>282472961
this is the only correct answer

2 is absolutely classic

1 is dated as fuck but still pretty fun

3 is a mess. still good but really spotty

He was so condescending during the Spyro 2 tutorial for some reason. That minigame where you had to catch the crystals that popped out of the ground made me hate him though. He's even worse than Mr. Vile from Banjo.

A friend of mine bought those for the family's kids and obviously had some to spare so he gave them to another pal of mine.

We've played together.

This is gonna sound cliche as ever because I know how you guys have heard this sentence before but

It's a neat game.

It's just NOT a Spyro game. Not even in the sense of "muh headcanon" and all that chickenshit bullshit.

As a different beast and all that jazz, it's alright. Not good nor great. Not subtle nor nuanced. It alright.

But what they did to Spyro's design is still unforgivable.

Each one of the little fuckers has an elemental affinity and its own HP.

If your lil fucker runs out of HP, it needs to "rest" and you have to scan another one of those fuckers if you wanna continue without restarting the level.

The more fuckers you have, the more continues you have, basically.

Some areas only open up if you have a fucker of a certain elemental affinity. The more fuckers you have, the bigger chance you have of stumbling upon areas you can open.

Fuckers.

Eh, I don't think Elijah Wood did too bad. His voice isn't too much of a stretch from Spyro's voice in 2/3/EtDF. Of all the things I could complain about the LoS games for, Wood's voice acting isn't one of them.

I really, really don't care for a lot of the levels. It distracted from the platforming to waste time and resources to make an area to knock monkeys out of trees, or escort some brainless AI, or be escorted by some brainless AI.
But when it is good, like Aquaria Towers or Metropolis, it's really good.
It's just that the complete focus on a mission structure diluted what I consider to the the perfect 3D platformer formula that the first one had.
If the did improve on one thing constantly it was the Speedways, which got better and better each game

Platformers were fucking everywhere, it was time for something else to move up to the scene. Still kind of a shame that the platformer quality dramatically decreased after a certain point. Even something like Jak went from platformer to a semi-GTA clone.

I had a lot of fun with it, but besides from the GBA games it was my first Spyro game after the original trilogy.

And I remember every time I played it, I couldn't shake the feeling that something was just plain wrong. Unlimited gems, no portals, and Spyro's voice. It just...it just felt like some kind of betrayal.

Not better than spyro but wasn't dragon commander pretty on point as far as being a dragon went?

Adding to this, also going into the menus didn't pause the game and it did a closeup of your character looking into your eyes, there was a lot of inventory management going on too with plenty of potion drinking.

I feel like Spyro Ape Escape and Crash were like the holy trinity of Playstation platformers. Then PS2 came around and you had Jak and Daxter, Ratchet and Clank, and Sly Cooper. And then PS3 came and we got nothing, and now the genre is dead and all they care about pumping out are shooters over and over again. At least sidescrolling platformers are seeing a resurgence I guess.

I've never given the Legend of Spyro games a shot even though I've thought about doing so. They just seemed to me like they were trying too hard to be big and grand epics and bore little resemblance to previous Spyro games, and everything I've heard about those games has done nothing to dispel that image from my mind.

All I remember was this weird glitch if you go back to talk to a specific npc after he gives you a quest. Spyro would just say "what" and the npc would say "what" with Spyro's voice. This would continue until the npc finally got his voice back and all he'd say was "exactly!", as if the entire script was bypassed.

The only reason this stuck out to me so much was because I remember the mission he gives is really unclear. I would go back so he could reiterate the task, and all I got was that fucking loop every single time.

as I mentioned, the first two were awful button mashing games; both games had the same enemy recolored for every single level and just threw waves after waves at you.

The third was amazing in comparison, it definitely had a very epic and grand feeling to it. The gameplay was flying platforming and pretty fun combat, with local-co-op.

I actually feel like the first game is the shortest. Spyro 2 and 3 had all those mini-games that pad out those games quite a bit. In recent years whenever I play the games I feel like I can just breeze through levels in the first game since I know where nearly all the gems, dragons, and eggs are and all but perfected some of the trickier platformer stuff like the super charges in Tree Tops. Even though I hardly ever find any of the mini-games in the second or third games challenging anymore I still feel a number of the mini-games still eat up time regardless.

Pretty sure it's a PS3 game.

It's still a button-mashing game.
Billy West was the best Sparx

It's on both PS2 and PS3.

I'd say it's the best Spyro game after the first three.
