Product Description

Spyro is a cute purple dragon in a bit of a pickle. Each of Spyro's dragon friends has fallen victim to the nefarious Gnasty Gnorc, who has turned them into crystals. Accompanied by Sparx the dragonfly, Spyro sets out to free his buddies, while collecting gems and dragon eggs. Sparx also serves as Spyro's health-o-meter, glowing gold when Spyro is healthy and turning dusky green as he tires. To boost his energy, Spryo can blast docile creatures with fire, turning them into butterflies, which Sparx transforms into much-needed fuel.

This title has bright graphics in six well-developed worlds, each with several subworlds, including bogs, deserts, and ice worlds. Unlike some action games, in Spyro the Dragon the enemies are more fun than frightening. In the Peace Keepers world, for example, Spyro must burn down the monster soldiers' tent, sending one of the minions running out, quaking with fear or, if you're lucky, dropping his drawers and shooting a moon.

Spyro's movements (fire breathing, gliding, jumping, and climbing) require entry-level gaming skills. For this reason, Spyro the Dragon is an excellent title for youngsters or less experienced players, who want to play without having to master complex movement combinations. --Kasty Thomas

5.0 out of 5 stars Spyro, Great Game October 1, 2001
This game is a very fun game. Very well made. You play Spyro(DUH), a young dragon. All the other dragons(I think there are 60 or so of them), have been captured and turned to stone, and are scattered about in the different worlds. The Dragon Eggs have been stolen by theives who are running around and hiding in different worlds. The dragon's treasure is lying around everywhere(not to mention alot of it has been turned into enemies). And who is the cause of this? GNASTY GNORC. And now, as Spyro, you must save the dragons, find the eggs, collect the treasure and defeat Gnasty Gnorc. Ok, that's the plot basicall; now here is what the game is like: As Spyro, your mission is to(As I said before) save the dragons, find the tresure and rescue the eggs. Being a young dragon, your wings are not fully grown, so you can not fly. You can, however, glide over short distances. You also have the ability to(Of course)breathe fire and charge with your horns. There are several worlds throughout the game. Each of these worlds has one home level, and in each of the home levels, there are doorway/portholes through which lie other levels for the worlds. In each of the worlds there will be dragons, treasure and eggs.
Dragons: These have been turned to stone by Gnasty Gnorc. To save them you simply find them, then walk up to them or charge at them or Flame them. They will then come back to life and talk to you before flying away. Some will give you advice, others will thank you, and some will just talk (sometimes insulting you).
Treasure: Treusure is just lying around in different places. Most of the enemies turn into treasure(which looks like gem stones). Some treasure are in chests.

With its phenomenal success on the first run market the Sony Corporation finally decided to add this one to their Greatest Hits collection. Having first rented it on its initial release at my local video store and playing it way into the wee hours of the morning I knew that this one was a future video game purchase. Fly, shoot fire, and guess what-nothing dies! Everything turns into to butterflies! My 8 year old sister loves watching me play and playing this wonderful game herself, the controls are very, very kid oriented and you don't have to ever worry about the content of the game. If your little one likes video games but you are just a tad bit worried about what he/she is playing buy Spyro The Dragon with a sigh of relief, a guarantee for hours of peace and quiet around the house. Perfect gift, Go get it now!

4.0 out of 5 stars If you don't like video games, you'll love Spyro! July 20, 1999

Well, it also helps to be fascinated with dragons, too. I've always had a hard time understanding what people find so appealing about most video games; they strike me as being unimaginative, needlessly bloody, and boringly repetitive. Spyro is the only video game I've found interesting enough to play through almost all of the levels. It may seem easy to play if you've played a lot of video games, but to a beginner like me, it was wonderful for a change of pace--it built up gradually in a non-threatening way. The challenges of the different levels are as much problem-solving as they are tests of reflexes; you have to remember tricks you learned on earlier levels in order to complete later tasks.
My only real complaint about the game is that there are a few particular sequences that I found completely impossible. Some were just very very difficult, and I was able to get through them with some hard work and a bit of luck; others were simply frustrating, and two of them stymied me completely.
But I more than forgive Spyro all that, especially after watching a friend's two-year-old daughter raptly playing for hours on end. Now I'm only waiting for the next version to come out!

But watch the water...dragons don't swim too well! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, addictive, beautiful game December 17, 1999
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game has spoiled me. It's not the most challenging game, but it's very intricate and loaded with detail. The gameplay is challenging without being frustrating, making it suitable for younger players. But the real value is in the details -- the characters, the backgrounds, and the music. Stewart Copeland (formerly of the Police) provided the soundrack, which is very atmospheric and non-video-gamey. The Gnorcs (the enemies Spyro must defeat) show up as anything from shapeless green blobs to Napoleonic soldiers to punks with orange Mohawks and walkmans. The levels and sublevels are well-thought-out, with plenty of hidden challenges.
In a nutshell, Spyro must travel through a series of worlds and subworlds, collecting gems, rescuing dragons who have been imprisoned in crystal, and defeating steadily more dangerous enemies. There is also a series of flight levels which are more of a dexterity challenge than anything else (and easily the most frustrating part of the game).
Unfortunately, this was one of the first games I ever played for the Playstation, and it has spoiled me. Every other platformer I've tried has failed to measure up to the standards set by Spyro. The combination of gameplay, characterization, and production values is simply without peer.
