    Spyro the Dragon: Reignited

    Nostalgia has hit its peak with the release of Spyro's Reignited Trilogy. Spyro the Dragon has been a popular character in video games now for twenty years, and what other way to celebrate his birthday then by recreating his first trilogy of games. Spyro was originally released on the PlayStation 1 (Look how far we've come) in September of 1998. While there has been debate over which game is the best of the series, there is no question with me. The original is always the best. With that said, let's take a look at the overall quality of the Reignited original Spyro game.

    Game play

    Nothing has changed in the way Spyro is played. You are the little purple dragon breathing fire on innocent sheep to feed your dragonfly. (wait, who is the villain again?) On your quest to save the dragon's from Gnasty Gnorc's evil spell, you will visit many worlds, battle many enemies, and have a blast doing it. The game play is that of a regular old platformer. You will not find a lot of difficulty figuring out the controls and the general movement around the levels. Collect gems, eggs, and release dragons until you make your way to the final battle with ol' Gnasty.


    There has been a lot of discussion around the overall difficulty of the game. For that I will say this. For hardcore gamers that look to be challenged, this is not the game for you. Remember this game was originally created for children, and I like to think as this game as the same thing now, but for a newer generation. The game is very easy, but that doesn't mean it is not enjoyable. Not every game needs to be riddled with difficulty to make it fun.


    The graphics are stunning. They did a great job of recreating the original game with all new visuals. It has the same feel as playing the PlayStation classic, with the power of the PS4. They could not have done a better job with the overall graphics of the game. They took the time to also make every dragon unique with their clothing style, or even something they are holding which is a breath of fresh air for the game. The music has also been remade for this release, but Toys For Bob did a wonderful thing, and made it an option to play the game with the original music. The voice overs have been redone as well.


    The trophies for the game are very easy to obtain. You will have to play through the game in its entirety, and collect everything along the way. There are guides if you get stuck, but it is a pretty easy game to 100 percent. Expect story, collectable, and level specific type trophies.


    Man I had a blast with this game. But that is nostalgia creeping in. The dedication from Toys For Bob really pays off for Spyro. It feels like they themselves wanted to play the game, and did not do this for the money. I very rarely find myself sunk into spending a day playing a game anymore, but I did spend some quality time here. The only issue is that, well it was made in the 90's, so it is a short game. I had the game complete in roughly 5 hours. Other than that though I cannot find any faults in the game itself, therefore, I give the game;
