Sparx voice keeps changing through all three Spyro games. See more »


Spyro: [in front of a large crystal] Hunter, give us a moment to gather our strength.
Sparx: You might want to stand back. This can get weird.
Hunter of Avalar: It is fascinating... how your kind draws strength from these crystals. Dragons are truley remarkable.
Sparx: Yeah, you say that now, until one tries to kill you. And by "one", I mean her.
[points at Cynder]
Hunter of Avalar: I am aware of Cynder's past. But Ignitus trusts her, and that's good enough for me.

Interesting series with a good start, a tedious middle, and a strong ending
19 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had the opportunity to experience the Legend of Spyro video game trilogy by way of Youtube. I watched someone who made three video play lists of themselves playing all three games non-stop. I saw the PS2 versions of the first and second installments and the XBOX 360 version of the third installment. I enjoyed watching this person play the first game, which had good voice performances by Gary Oldman, David Spade, and Elijah Wood. The story grabbed my attention as did the game play. I must admit though, sometimes I got frustrated with the guy playing the game because he did things or did not do things that I would've or wouldn't have done. Anyway, the first game was good enough to make me watch the other two play lists. The second game was very tedious, with long intervals between each major event in the game. But the last game was much better than the second with a spectacular ending and what I consider to be great game play. I would say Dawn of the Dragon is my favorite installment just based on the fact that you can be either Spyro or Cynder in either one-player or two-player mode, and you get to fly at anytime (something that I've been begging and wishing for ever since I first played the original Spyro games). I liked Gary Oldman as Ignitus and David Spade and a somewhat unrecognizable Wayne Brady as Sparx in the first and third installments respectively. Elijah Wood wasn't a bad choice for Spyro, and my favorite person playing Cynder was Mae Whitman in the second installment (I wish she stayed on for number three, but she probably had to do Avatar: The Last Airbender at that point). All in all, a pretty good reboot series. If more Spyro games are made, maybe they can do more with Spyro and Cynder.
