Don't be fooled by Spyro's cuteness--this isn't a kid's-only game. With multiple goals and side quests, a fantastic soundtrack by ex-Police band member Stewart Copeland, and a veneer of understated humor, Spyro: Ripto's Rage is highly addictive. The playfulness of the main character comes through in the exploration of the otherworldly levels using the new moves, including super high jumps, rapid underwater swimming, and extended flight and hovering maneuvers.
Determined explorers are always rewarded--sometimes with an ice hockey match or other sub-game, sometimes with riches enough to learn a new move or uncover a new area. Simply put, Spyro: Ripto's Rageis one of the best action/adventure games for the system. Despite the fact that this game is a sequel, it manages to bring a fresh new look and feel to PlayStation gaming. --Jeff Young
- Massive, fun levels are completely navigable
- Cute and quirky sense of humor will appeal to all ages
- Responsive controls are an extension of Spyro's upbeat and exacting personality
- Camera angles can be problematic, but are completely adjustable

Spyro 2 manages to maintain everything that made the original a classic, and goes on to add much, much more to do. You play hockey, you defend villagers from giant ravenous lizards, you play hide-and-seek with a giant, you fight enormous monsters in lava-filled arenas, you play billiards with turtles (you have to see it to understand!), you dogfight versus sheep in flying saucers, and these are just a few of the side quests - I think there are 64 in all. Then there are loads of secret "skill points" throughout the worlds (and a really cute reward for finding all of them.) Overall, Spyro 2 is a beautiful addition to a flawless original game. The sequel adds even more humor, and manages to do it in a way that appeals to adults and children at the same time for different reasons (in much the same way as the old Warner Bros. cartoons.)
If anyone needs further proof of this game's appeal to a broad age spectrum, you should know that my mother absolutely loves it. She had never played a video game before the original Spyro, but when she tried it she was hooked. She bought Spyro 2 the day it came out, and has called me at all hours of the day and night asking for hints. She just got to 93% completion yesterday, and now she's trying to find all the secret skill points. I'm just glad that she now shares my point of view: video games aren't all mindless, repetitive drivel. Some of them have real class.
The new moves are cool. Hope they continue with the excellent graphics and come out with aother Spyro in the near future.
Everything that I liked best about the original -- the interactivity, the detailed and sophisticated environments and fun stuff like blowing things away with cannons -- is back and cranked up several notches.
Everything that made the original game sometimes seem repetitive -- doing nothing but collecting gems and dragons, the tiny worlds, only being able to use a few moves in any given environment -- is dumped.
And while this game really is perfect for kids -- the worst thing in it is some cartoon violence of dinosaurs swallowing cavemen and spitting out an enormous bone -- it's a hoot for adults, with lots of subtle humor and a game that's challenging enough without having anything as frustrating as Tree Tops from the original game.
An instant classic.
Now comes along Spyro 2, and they actually DID manage to top the original. The graphics are absolutely breathtaking, the new puzzles are (and I hate to use such a hackneyed phrase as this, but it fits) fiendishly clever. And Stewart Copeland has outdone himself, creating a score that blends seamlessly into the game, creating a totally enthralling *experience*.
Game play itself is pretty much the same, with a few new moves to learn, but the same precise control. There's more interaction with characters in the game, and a storyline that's more involved than the previous outing. And the mini-games within the whole game will keep you coming back to have a little fun long after you've finished the game (which is quite involved, between the actual story line, the 100% complete, AND the skill points! This one will keep you busy for a while!).
All in all, I'm completely psyched. I can't wait for either: a) Spyro 3, or: b) Super-Happy-Fun-Spyro on the Playstation 2! (yeah! )

So glad I could find this game at a reasonable price! I only give it 4 stars because the game disc was pretty scratched up and the cut scenes seem to have suffered for it. Read morePublished 23 days ago by FauxFox
