One of my Favorite Games of All-Time. A Classic!!!!
4 September 2009 | by (Colombia) – See all my reviews

Back in the 90's, when the gaming world wasn't dominated by FPS, fake guitars or sandbox-like GTA-gameplay, there were many great 3d platformers. But it was one of them which really, really got me since the first time I played it. No, I'm not talking' about Super Mario 64, neither Banjo Kazooie, it's all about a tiny purple dragon called Spyro.

"Spyro the Dragon" came out in 1998, a time where the industry move into 3d was almost complete and it was, IMO, a perfect example of this move done right. This game was awesome, it had everything a good platformer should have: interesting characters(mainly in design, but sometimes also in personality), huge areas to roam (pre-GTA), plenty of stuff to collect, several secrets to discover, inspired (if somewhat quirky) enemies to defeat, vibrant, colorful graphics and environments and the best part is that it didn't feel like another Mario clone!!!!.

So, if you are into platformers or just want good clean fun, you should definitely try this game or any of its great sequels ("Spyro: Ripto's Rage" or "Spyro: Year of the Dragon"). Highly recommended!!!!
