An absolutely wonderful, nostalgic game
29 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Spyro: Year Of The Dragon to this day remains my favorite game. Everything about it is great. The graphics, the levels, the mini-games, the music, the characters, and everything else. It is without a doubt the PsOne's best game, and the best game in the Spyro series, after Insomniac stopped making them and the games were taken over by a different company who made them terrible, hard, and just stupid. Spyro Year Of The Dragon is a wonderful platformer that I prefer over Ape Escape any day. You should definitely play this game, so screw Ape Escape and any other PsOne platform game that isn't in the Spyro series.
